PUNCTUATION OF COORDINATE CONJUNTIONS

AND, BUT, FOR, NOR, OR, SO, YET

 

  • When the coordinate conjunctions (and, but, for, nor, or, so, yet) gain two sentences, they are preceded by a comma:

 

"I am poor, but I’m happy."

"It's raining, so I won't go out."

"It's raining, yet we'll go out."

"I am going to Istanbul, and we'll meet there."

 

  • If we don’t use a coordinating conjunction, we can compound senteces with a semicolon:

 

“I like chocolate; my brother hates it.”

“I like chocolate, but my brother hates it.”
