Understanding and Types of Conjunction Sentences

Understanding and Types of Conjunction Sentences
Conjunctions or conjunctions are words used to connect words with words, clauses with clauses, or sentences with sentences (Chaer, 2000: 140). From this understanding, the conjunctions are very necessary to clarify the sentences, because the conjunctions are signs of written language that are influential in making sentences or essays. A description essay will be difficult to understand if the description essay is not affixed with conjunctions.
Students often lack understanding of conjunctions in an essay, even though every day they are in school will surely meet with writing and reading activities, be it reading textbooks or writing an essay. Although many books that discuss the use of Indonesian language are good and right, but the reality is still often found in the use of conjunctions that are not right.
One of the reasons according to the standard grammar is the unfamiliar strategy of making sentences. The making of this paper is not only to fulfill the task of Indonesian, but also serves as knowledge of the use of good and correct grammar.

Definition of Conjunction
Conjunction (conjunctions) is a task word whose function is to connect between clauses, intersalimatimat, and between paragraphs. Intermediate conjunctions are usually located in the middle of sentences, while interconnected conjunctions at the beginning of a sentence (after the dot, question mark, and exclamation mark), while the conjunctions between paragraphs are located at the beginning of a paragraph.

Examples of Conjunctions:
Farida was reading and her sister was playing chess.
I want to leave when my homework is done.
You leave now or you miss the train.
Conjunction can also connect 2 words or phrases. Conjunctions such as and and or, for example, can be used to form phrases such as:

Toni and Ali
life or death
Conjunctions in Indonesian can be grouped into intra-sentence conjunctions and inter-sentence conjunctions. Intralimatetic conjunctions (between clauses) are words that connect parent clauses and child clauses. In intracalimat conjunction (between clauses) there are also 2 types of conjunctions or conjunctions, namely coordinative conjunctions and subordinative conjunctions. While the conjunction between sentences is a word that connects one word to another. The following explanation of intra and inter-sentence conjunctions.

Intra-sentence Conjunction
Intra-sentence conjunction (Inter-Clause) Is a word that connects the parent clause and the child clause. The conjunctions between clauses are usually located in the middle of a sentence. In intra sentences (between clauses) there are also two types of conjunctions or conjugations, namely: Coordinating Conjunctions

Coordinating Conjunction

If one or both of them will be stated, then people often use two conjunctions simultaneously, i.e. and / or with a slash between the two words.
