    Iíll try:

    1. So

    As an adverb:
    "Hold your instrument so!" ( = in this, same or that way; as shown )
    "Is this so?" (= in such a way as stated)
    "You run so fast." (= to this or that degree)
    "You were so cool as she was." ( = to such a degree, to the same degree)
    "She is so gentle." ( = very)
    "It hurts so." (= very much)
    "I was sad, so I went to sleep." (= for this or that reason; accordingly; hence)
    "I like cats, so does he." (=also; likewise)

    As a conjunction:
    "Leave me so I could study." ( = with the result that; in order that)
    "I work so she doesnít have to." (= with the purpose or intention that)

    As a pronoun:
    "This measures a meter or so." (= more or less; roughly that)
    "She is sad and will remain so for a while." (= the same)
    "It is so." ( = this; that; whatever has been or is going to be said)
    "She is so gentle." ( = very)

    Itís an interjection too.

    2. So that

    As a conjunction:
    "Leave me so that I could study." ( = with the result that)
    "I work so that she doesnít have to." (= with the purpose that)
    "I go so you stay." (= if; provided that)
