I was reading an article on conjuction. It says that a conjuction is a word which merely joins words or sentences.
It further says that relative pronouns and relative adverbs are also conjuctions but they do the other works also.
My doubts are:
1. Are relative pronouns and adverbs a conjuction?
2. What other works do they do?
A conjunction may link two words or phrases. We may therefore say «I am cold but happy». «But» therefore links «cold» and «happy».
A relative pronoun may link two phrases. The relative pronoun in one phrase refers, however, to a constituent of the other phrase. We may therefore say «He is Hanuman, who has asked an interesting question». «Who» refers to «Hanuman» in the first part.
Anonymous:no.. they are not relatives.
Hanuman_2000Hello,I was reading an article on conjuction. It says that a conjuction is a word which merely joins words or sentences.2. What other works do they do?
2a. Relative pronouns functions as a conjunction, usually connecting two clauses. For example,
[You are the person] who [asks such fine questions].
2b. As for conjunctive adverbs, they only connect the ideas of two sentences; therefore, a semi-colon is always used in the middle of the two sentences. For instance,
[Such fine questions are complicated]; consequently/as a result/therefore/thus, [few people can explain them clearly].
