  4. 4. Conjunctions Defined: <br />a conjunction joins words and phrases. Conjunctions make writing more concise: Instead of: &quot;I don&apos;t like apples. I don&apos;t like oranges.&quot; use the conjunction &quot;or&quot; to connect the two sentences: &quot;I don&apos;t like apples or oranges.“<br />Examples: and, or, but, nor<br />
