Examples of pure conjunctions used to connect clauses:

EX.— Come here and I will show you.

EX.— He said he returned the item, but I know he was lying.

EX.— They must learn the rules or they will fail.

EX.— Either Laura is wrong, or I am.

EX.— Se is not wrong, nor am I.

Examples of pure conjunctions used to connect phrases:

EX.— My sister owed money to my mother and to her friend.

EX.— You owe an apology, not to John, but to me.

Examples of pure conjunctions used to connect words:

EX.— They gave the soccer team medals in honor of good sportsmanship to Becky and Jenny.

EX.— The nurse or the doctor will answer your questions.

EX.— He wants neither Santa Clause nor the Easter Bunny.
