    “asyndetical joining”

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough explain to me the meaning of the term “asyndetical joining”?

    I know that coordination and subordination may be achieved by means of conjunctions, connective words, or without any special means of joining – by asyndical joining, as is the case in the sentence bellow.

    “The school-room Nicolas entered was such a crowded scene, and there were so many objects to attract attention, that at first Nicolas stared about him really without seeing anything at all.”

    Note the following examples of asydentical joining:

    I came, I saw, I conquere.

    He was very tired; his face was pale.

    Asydentical co-ordination)

    I know he is here.

    (Asyndecal subordination)

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards

    V.
