    is a coordinator the same as a conjuction as they both have the same purpose

    When joining two sentences together, and by using a coordinator a comma is used.Is this true or false?



    What is the difference between a conjuction and a coodinator?Do they not have the same purpose.


    example:

    The man had stop shouting, but he was still extremely angry . (coordinator FANBOYS) I think?

    For, and, nor, but, or, yet, so are called coordinating conjunctions. They are both coordinators and conjunctions.

    Re: is a coordinator the same as a conjuction as they both have the same purpose

    When writing i use a comma to make a simple sentence into a compound or complex sentence, and i use the nmenoc FLAGBOYS.



    but can i use the word (with) or (and) and does (with or and) not need a comma, because it is a joining word (conjuction word).

    but can i use the word (with) or (and) and does (with or and) not need a comma because it is a joining word(a conjuction word).


    My qeustion is with or without the comma when using the word "and" ,"because" and "with" as sometimes i have seen a comma used with a (conjuction) joining word to form a compound or complex sentence, and i think both are correct, but i dont know why.



    thank you hope the qeustion i have posted makes sense.
    and i hope you clear this matter up for me ..


    thank you
