A conjunction connects words or groups of words.
A conjunction differs from a preposition in having no object and in indicating a less definite relation between the words which it connects.
Time and tide wait for no man.
The parcel was small but heavy.
He wore a kind of doublet or jacket.
The conjunctions AND, BUT, OR, connect single words - time with tide, small with heavy, doublet with jacket.
Do not go if you are afraid.
I came because you sent for me.
Take my key. But do not lose it.
Sweep the floor and dust the furniture.
Each conjunction connects the entire group of words preceding it with the entire group following it.
