Just remember: boys fan

By Debra Dobbins

The conjunction is a handy part of speech. It lets us link words, phrases and sentences together to make our speech AND writing a little bit more sophisticated.

There are three types of conjunctions: coordinating, subordinate AND correlative. The most common of them is the coordinating conjunction.

English has eight coordinating conjunctions. We can remember them with the sentence, “Boys fan.”

B but
O or
Y yet
S so

F for
A and
N nor

The other parts of speech are the noun, pronoun, verb, adverb, adjective, preposition and interjection. All eight parts of speech help us not only understand English, but to grasp other languages, as well.
