Conjunction is one type of word (Parts of Speech) is used to connect the word with other
word, the sentence with the other sentence, so as to be able to form an understanding or the clear
and complete meaning.

Here are some of conjunction that is often used both in the form of the article and oral:

1. Expressing additional information

(besides, moreover, in addition, also, furthermore, and, also, too)
• Besides (preposisi)

noun / pronoun / gerund.
e.g. Besides being good at sport, Niko is a good student.
• Besides (Adverb)
Usually headed the clause. The word ‘moreover’ and ‘furthermore’ had the
meaning that a meaning with this conjunction.
e.g. Sora doesn’t want to go there, besides she has already been

and were equal.
e.g. He switched off the lights and went to bed.

Showed the conflict/the different matter.
e.g. She invited him to the party last week but he did not come.
• Still and yet
e.g. They are ugly and expensive yet; yet/still, people buy them.
• Although, though, even though

• In spite of, despite
Showed the contradictory sentence and must head the phrase
e.g. - They went to the rock concert despite the hard rain.
- In spite of the bad weather, we continued our journey.
The difference between "though / although / even though" with "in spite of /

"in spite of / despite" followed by the word object.
Note to the difference of the sentence along with:

question/others are not fulfilled. Conjunction ‘or’ could replace the position
‘otherwise’, apart from stating the choice.
e.g. You have to come there soon otherwise she will be angry with you.

e.g. She will be angry unless you come there now.
Unless means the same as ‘If not’, but unless was formed in the
pattern of the positive sentence whereas ‘If not’ was formed in the
pattern of the negative sentence.

If + S + do/does not + V1… = Unless + S + V1/V1 (s/es)

If + S + did not + V1… = Unless + S + V2…

If + S + Has/Have not + Been/V3 = Unless + S + Has/Have +


If + S + to be + Complement/V1- = Unless + S + tobe + Com./V1-

ing ing

e.g. She was very busy yesterday so she didn’t come to the party.
