What is a Coordinating Conjunction?

Coordinating Conjunctions(a) She yelled and I came.

(b) He waved but I did not come.

(c) You must find a job or go to school.

(d) John and I played video games.

(e) We drove over the overpass and down a hill.

In the sentences above, notice that the connecting words and, but, and or are performing the same duty. For instance, in (a), (b), and (c) the clauses are both independent; in (d) "John and I" both act as subjects of played; in (e), over the overpass and down a hill are adverbial phrases of the same rank.

Conjunctions that connect words, phrases, or clauses of equal rank are called coordinating conjunctions. Coordinating means putting in the same rank.

English has two types of coordinating conjunctions: pure conjunctions and conjunctive adverbs.
