CONNECTORS

(a) A Connector is a word which merely join sentences or sometimes words.

Examples:

Ram and Shyam are good friends

He is thin but healthy.

(b) Connectors or conjunction may be used in pairs as well.

Example:

Either-or-either behave properly or quite the class.

Neither-not-he is good neither at studies not at sports

Bothe-and-he is both honest and hard-working.

Though-yet-though he is hurt, yet he is not complaining.

Whether-or- I do not know whether he’ll come or not.

Not only-but also-he is not only foolish but also spoilt.

Note. Such connectors, also known as correlative conjunctions, are used immediately

before the words to be connected.

Sometimes certain compound expressions can be used as connectors like even if, so

that, as though, as well as, provide that, in order that, etc.

Examples:

I’ll lend you the book provided that you return it on time.

He walks as if he were lame.

The Connectors or conjunctions are two types:

(a) Co-ordinating conjunctions which join clause of equal rank.

Example:

Listen to me or I’ll complain against you.

(b) Subordinating conjunctions which join a clause with another on which it

depends for its full meaning.

Example:

Wait here till I return.

We eat so that we may live.

We shall cancel the picnic if it rains.
