Correlative conjunctions, such as either...or, neither... nor, whether...or, not only, act in pairs, with both words working together to produce a balance in words, phrases, or clauses. Finally, subordinating conjunctions are employed to connect an independent clause to a subordinate phrase.

Independent clauses are joined by coordinating conjunctions. Independent and dependent clauses are joined by subordinating conjunctions. Correlative conjunctions also use two conjunctions in the same sentence. Correlative conjunctions include either... or, neither.... nor, and so on.

The act of connecting two thoughts of equal weight and importance is known as coordination. Subordination is the act of assigning a lower priority to one notion over another.

A subordinating conjunction is the word or words used to connect a subordinating clause to another phrase or sentence.
