Associating with conjunctions

Method

Use conjunctions to create associations between things. You can connect people with ideas, cause with effect, feelings with actions, etc. Just use coordinating conjunctions such as and, but, for, nor, or, so or yet between phrases.

Example

I gave her the flowers and she was very happy.

I like you but I need to leave.

Discussion

When coordinating conjunctions are put into the same sentence, there is an implied association between them, even though this may not be the case. This is used in persuasion to forge a connection (which may be positive or negative) when there may not be any actually there.

Correlative conjunctions surround a word or phrase and show how the two phrases are correlated (often causally).

I was so completely happy that I laughed out loud.
