    Often, we shorten phrases in American English, especially in conversation. Thus, we may use "so" when we mean "so that." This is acceptable as long as the punctuation identifies whether you are using "so" as a conjunction or as a shortened form of ôso that.

    Sorry, I don't get what it meant :

    as long as the punctuation identifies whether you are using "so" as a conjunction or as a shortened form of ôso that.
