The idea behind coordinating conjunctions is that words that seem to fit naturally together are more likely to be used as a single unit in writing. Let’s look at an example from Jane Austen’s “Northanger”. Lady Chatterton and Mr Robroy are talking about a terrible event in the country. Lady Chatterton wants to tell Mr Robroy what it was, but she has trouble remembering the name of the non-existent event, “The Non-esseur’s Dinner”.
Well, since a comma can technically be part of a non-essential element, it follows that “the dinner” can also be a verb. So the grammar is “The Non-esseur’s Dinner was held by the Parlour”. If the writer uses a comma after the word “the”, she will have allowed herself the liberty to combine two verbs into one, thus making her statement less grammatically problematic. However, using a comma after a specific word, even if it isn’t a verb, reduces the compositional value of the piece.
So the question is: do all coordinating conjunctions belong only to nouns? Not necessarily. For example, the use of commas to indicate the number one (can you remember the number one after that?) or to indicate the time of day (8 to 5?) would not make sense in sentences where the verb was not a verb. It is perfectly possible for these types of sentences to have a valid grammatical structure.
Well, there are some cases where a comma can actually be a valuable thing
In the example above, the second part of the conjunction is “the” and the first part of the conjunction is “the dinner”. This means that we have two independent clauses, both of which agree with the main verb. In this example the second clause clearly states what the subject of the third part of the coordinating conjunction is. The third clause simply adds a little bit of information. The second and third clauses of a coordinating conjugation can be used to introduce a new topic, to indicate the time of day (even though it doesn’t change the basic grammatical structure of the sentence), or to indicate a boundary between parts of the story.
Using commas to indicate boundaries is fine when you want to indicate a beginning, middle, or end of a story. When using them with mnemonic phrases, however, it is generally better to just use commas without the subject’s name. Commas can also be used to indicate whether the main verb should be acted out in the present or past tense. So “The dog ate last night” is expressed with “was” while “The dog ate last night” is written as “was” plus “time”. Although using commas with mnemonic phrases does indeed allow you to indicate when the action takes place, it is generally better to write sentences using the conjunction to indicate where the action is taking place.
There are three types of coordinating conjugations that I will discuss
There are the unifying ones, such as “know” and “be”, which are very powerful. There are the coordinating conjugations, which give you the feeling that you already know what the subject is about, as in “He knows that I’m a fan”. Then there are the dependent and independent clauses. Let’s look at the three types more closely.
Unifying Coordinating Conjugations The unifying conjunction is very simple to understand: it is a coordinating conjunction that connects a subject and a verb. The most common examples of unifying coordinating conjugations are the words “the dog eat”, “I am the dog eating” and “we are eating”. If you have ever studied SEO content, you will have seen how much importance (and power) certain keywords play in generating web traffic.
On the other hand, there are times when you need to use a semi-colon to connect a verb and a subject
These are used so frequently in technical writing that many writers just flat out omit them from their writing. One way that you can fix this problem is by using a comma after the keyword, like “I know that we can do a Google search on the keyword,” which means you will have included a semi-colon in your sentence, thereby giving the reader an idea as to the overall direction of the writing. If you need to be sure that the writer avoids including commas, then you may want to look over any academic writing that you are going to copy and make sure that it does not contain any commas. Finally, if you ever find yourself confused about whether or not to use a semi colon, you can always ask an English writing teacher for help!
