  1. Common Coordinating Conjunctions: • AND, OR, BUT, SO • Use these along with a comma when joining • independent clauses to make a compound sentence. • Instead of AND, you may use a semicolon. • Compound Sentence: • ,AND • sentence ,OR sentence. • ,BUT • ,SO

  2. II. Common Subordinating Conjunctions: • although, after, as, because, before, if, until, unless, • while, when • Put any one of these in front of an independent clause • to create a subordinate clause. A subordinate clause • must be attached to an independent clause, creating • a complex sentence. Use a comma after the subordinate • clause if it comes first. • Complex Sentence: • Form 1: Independent clause subordinate clause. • Form 2: Subordinate clause, independent clause.

  3. Common Conjunctive Adverbs: • moreover, however, therefore • These may be used like coordinating conjunctions • to create compound sentences. • These can introduce a sentence, end a sentence, • or even move around within their own clauses. • They may be used like coordinating conjunctions • to create compound sentences; however, you need • a semicolon before and a comma after.

  4. IV. Common Relative Pronouns: which, that, who/whom, why, when, where These are similar to subordinating conjunctions when used to join clauses. They need a comma IF they are only commenting; they do NOT need a comma if they are defining.

  5. Common Hitching Devices Coordinating Conjunctiions Subordinating Conjunctions Conjunctive Adverbs Relative Pronouns That Which Who, whom What Where Why How Whichever Whatever, etc. As, although, after While, when Until Because, before If AAAWWUBBI However Moreover Therefore Furthermore And But So Or/nor Can join clauses Warning: Many sentence fragments begin with these words. Usually, you must hitch these words and the clauses that they introduce to your previous sentence. Can join two independent clauses to make a compound sentence. Warning:You must use a comma with these when they join independent clauses. Can hitch up to an independent clause, creating a subordinate (dependent) clause, forming complex sentence. Can appear after main clause (no comma) or before main clause (needs a comma) Can move within own clause; Requires commas on both sides Warning: If you wish to use these to join clauses, you must use a semicolon.
