    Oh, one more! What's the function of However, although, and despite? Are they adverbs, conjunctions?

    Despite- preposition
    Although- conjunction
    However- adverb, or conjunct (both terms are used)

    Are the words like "And/morever" considered conjuncts?

    'Moreover' is, but 'yes' is an adverb.

    I`d like to add something to Tdol`s previous explanations. If you want to give only one word to these words [adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions] , you can name them by only one word :connectors
