ENGLISH GRAMMAR (conectors

)
AND, BUT, SO, OR, and BECAUSE
We use any of these words (conjunctions) to join two sentences. They make one longger
sentence from two shorter sentences. EX.:
sentence A

The car stopped ------------ The driver got out
The caar stopped, and the driver got out

sentence B

And- but or.:
Sentence A

sentence B

We stay at home,
My sister is married,
He doesn’t like her,
I boutght a newspaper
It’s a nice house,
Do you want to go out?

and
and
and
but
but
or

(we) watched television.
(she) lives in London.
she does’t like him.
I didn’t read it.
it doesn’t got a garage.
you are too tired

In lists, we use comas (,) We use and between the last two things.
Ex:
I got home, had something to eat, sat dawn to watch TV, and fell asleep
So ( the result of something)
It was very hot, so we opened the window
I don’t like to travel, so I haven’t been to many places
They had some free time, so they went for a drive
Because (the reson for something)
We opened the window
Lisa is hungry

because it was very hot
because she didn’t have breakfast

Because is also possible at the beginning. We use a comma.
EX.: Because they didn’t have time, they didn’t go for a drive
You can use more than one conjunction ex.:
I was late and I was tired, so I went to bed.
