    Re: conjuctıon

    With a co-ordinating conjunction, the things that are linked are of equal importance grammtically. (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so)
    Subordinating conjunctions introduce a dependent clause- something that isn't complete on its own. (after, although, if, unless, and because are exapmles)- 'Becuase it was raining' doesn't sound complete on its own but if you have 'I stayed in because it was raining', it makes sense.
