    Hi, everyone!

    Today, I want to share to you the simplest and the most common technique in memorizing coordinating conjunctions.

    This is by means if using a mnemonic device. You just need  to remember the word “FANBOYS,” which stands for the coordinating conjunctions: For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, and So. 

    First of all, let’s understand what is Conjunction.

    Conjunctions are parts of speech that connect words, phrases, clauses, or sentences. There are three kinds of conjunctions: coordinating, paired, and subordinating.

    FANBOYS are examples of coordinating conjunctions.

    We mainly use these conjunctions to connect two independent clauses.

    Indenpending Clause have their own subject and verb.  It can stand alone without the need of the other clause.

    Example: “She is my teacher and we are her students.

    Do you find this easy to understand? I want to hear your thoughts about this. You can ask in the comment section or you can provide your own example.

    Thank you so much.
