Spanish Conjunction

See also: Conjunction types

Conjunctions are the connecting part of speech - they link words, phrases and clauses into more complex, related structures.

There are two types of conjunctions:

  1. Coordinating conjunctions (conjunciones coordinantes) link two equal words or clauses.
      
  2. Subordinating conjunctions (conjunciones subordinantes) link a dependent clause to a main clause: the two clauses are unequal.

Have a look at these examples:

Tengo perros y gatos en casa. (I have dogs and cats at home.)

Voy al cine cuando hay una película buena. (I go to the cinema when there is a good film.)

I'll be right with you...
