conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections


What do you know about conjunctions, prepositions and interjections? They are parts of speech whose role is to connect the elements of a sentence. As their functions are different, we have tried to explain them separately in the following paragraphs.


They are words that are used to connect words, phrases, clauses, and sentences. But their function depends on which category of conjunction they are. The most famous conjunctions are: For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, and So (known as FANBOYS).


  1. The father bought a P.C for his son.
  2. She loves bananas and apples.
  3. He is rich but unhappy.


These are usually short words placed before a noun or a pronoun. They are used to show a relation with other words in a clause or sentence. Their main role is to link objects, locations, time and people in a sentence.


  1. The boy is on the tree.
  2. They arrived at 5:00 p.m.
  3. She is from New York.


They are non-linguistic terms used to express a feeling or emotion. They don’t have grammar forms, and they don’t lend themselves to grammatical rules. They are called “interjections” because they interject (interrupt) with the general flow of the language, especially in speaking. Conjunctions are often punctuated with an exclamation mark. The mosly used ones are: OH!, Wow! and Umm!


  1. Wow! You look smart today.
  2. Oh, friend!I have to go now.
  3. Umm, ok. let’s start.
