November 22, 2016

November 22, 2016


We're getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, and that means planning all kinds of delicious food to share with family and friends. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it's fairly low-key, it involves reflecting on all of the good things in life, and you get to spend the day with family and friends.

As a way to thank you, we've decided to run a Thanksgiving discount! Check out the "I Recommend" section below for details.

Correlative Conjunctions

Correlative conjunctions join sentence elements that are equal. That means that they join two or more words, phrases, or clauses together. They are made up of two or more words.

either... or, neither... nor, both... and, not only... but also

Did you notice that these conjunctions do the same thing as coordinating conjunctions? That is true! The only difference between them is that coordinating conjunctions are made of just one word and correlative conjunctions are made of two or more words.

Correlative Conjunction Example #1

phrasal verb

He is both intelligent and good-natured.

Both... and is a correlative conjunction joining two words together. It's joining the words intelligent and good-natured. The sentence diagram makes that really easy to see!

Correlative Conjunction Example #2

phrasal verb

We can either drive to the park or to the museum.

Either... or is a correlative conjunction joining two phrases. It's connecting the phrases to the park and to the museum.
