  • Hi students. How are you? This is an introduction to coordinate conjunctions.

  • When I like to think of coordinate conjunctions, I like to compare them to either mathematics or chemistry.

  • I know there are a few students who do not enjoy grammar.

  • I like to use that comparison to see if, perhaps, you see if you can see that formula I can see in writing.

  • Your Sentence-Combining Workbook will introduce you to coordinate conjunctions.

  • What follows is an introduction to Compound Sentences.

  • A coordinate conjunction serves like a plus sign.

  • You have to have a subject. You have to have a verb.

  • You have to include a comma before the coordinate conjunction.

  • Then, you have to add another subject and verb.

  • Let us look at a couple examples of coordinate conjunctions in what I call Compound Sentences.

  • Let us look at a few more examples.

  • Anytime that you want to use a coordinate conjunction you can also use a semicolon instead.

  • You have to remember that we use the semicolon sparingly.

  • I have the same exact sentences, but notice I have a semicolon.

  • I expect you apply those rules to your writing.

  • And look for those sentence patterns in writing--let it be a magazine, a novel, or a textbook.

  • And you will improve your own writing style.

  • Thank you.
