1.Coordinating – connect words, phrases, and clauses of equal rank.
2.Subordinating – used to introduce subordinate clauses.

a. The AND type

AND is used to add something to what has already been said. It should be used only when
the second idea is along the same line of thought as the first idea.

1.She is attractive and good-tempered.
2.(The words attractive and good tempered are positive qualities)
3.He went away and never came back.

b. The BUT Type

BUT is used to add something contrary to or different from wha has already been said.
When we use but, the second part of the sentence expresses an idea which is a contrast to the first.

1.He is stupid but industrious.
2.(Stupid is a negative quality while industrious is a positive quality.)

C.The OR type

OR implies a choice. It connects ideas of equal value – giving one a chance to choose

either idea.

1.You can come today or tomorrow.
2.I can go or stay as I please.

D. The SO Type

So is used when the second part is a consequence of the first part. The so typediffers from
the and type, which implies the same line of thought. It also differs from the but type which
implies a contrast. So implies that the second part follows as a result of the first part.
