Parts of Speech - Conjunctions

 

A conjunction is a word that joins other words, phrases, or clauses. Correlative conjunctions join words, phases, or clauses of equal rank.

 

The correlative conjunctions are always in pairs. They are either-or, neither-nor, both-and, not only-but also, and whether-or.

 

Instructions: List the correlative conjunctions joining phrases in the following sentences.

 

1. You can go neither to the corn maze nor to the movie.
