8 Conjunctions and Example Sentences

Conjunctions, a group of words like but, because, or, so, although, and though, are words used to bring other words and phrases together. Even though these words have no meaning on their own and their only meaning is in sentences, it would not be possible for us to construct complex or long sentences without conjunctions. Since it is not aesthetic to constantly make short sentences, art could not develop sufficiently.
