Grammar Exercise: Connecting words

Connecting words (or conjunctions) connect words, phrases and clauses.

These can be words that add information (such as “and”), or words that show contrast (“but”, “although”, “while”.)

They can also be words that give reasons, such as “so” or “because”.

Finally, don’t forget relative pronouns which add more detail, such as “where” and “when”.

For a list of useful connecting words, take a look at the page on linking words.
