seraph42Most of these things in the list don't connect two clauses. How are they conjunctions then?

Conjunctions do not necessarily have to connect clauses. For example, "I bought bread, milk and eggs". But if this is not what you are referring to, please give one or two typical examples of where you think these words do not connect anything.

The term is not exactly correct. The heading should be "conjuncts" Most of the entries are "conjunctive adverbs," a subclass of conjuncts.

Their function is to depict a logical relationship between two ideas, such as addition and contrast or different levels of detail.

These words and phrases can be flexibly positioned in a sentence, the other types of conjuncts ( coordinating and subordinating conjunctions ) cannot.

1.Actually, I am quite busy.


2.In the end, everything will be alright.


These are not conjunctions, as far as I know


Conjunctions work this way:


1.I woke up "earlier than" usual.


2. I got up "and" did my hair.
