UNION as part of speech


Unions serve to link syntactic units</a>

Unions are an official part of speech. They are called upon to link simple sentences into complex as well as homogeneous terms in a simple sentence.

By their composition, unions are divided into simple and composite, and in their functions - on the cohesive and subordinate.

What are the unions?

The word "union" is a tracing-paper from the Latin "conjunction" - it is an unchangeable service word, which is a formal means of connecting syntactic units.

The honor of some composite unions ("not only ... but also", "how ... and") are with different homogeneous members of the sentence or in different proposals that are part of the complex.

The unions that consist of one word are calledSimple: "and", "a", "but", "or", "yes", "how", "either", "what", "like". And the unions, which are a combination of significant and unfamiliar words, are compound. For example: "meanwhile", "that is", "as soon as", "despite the fact that", "in view of the fact that", "while", "as soon as" and others.

Unions are divided into coherent and subordinate.

Writers' unions transmit equitable,Independent relations between homogeneous terms of a simple sentence or parts of a complex one. For example: "The house stood on a hill, and from there a wide view was opened." In this sentence, the "and" co-ordination union connects 2 simple sentences as part of a complex one. And in the sentence: "A light wind, it subsided, then woke up again" - the union "then ... then" links the homogeneous members of the sentence.

Subordinate unions impart unequal,Dependent relations between parts of a complex sentence. For example: "We wanted (what?), So that spring would come sooner" (subordinate explanatory). Or: "The book will be published (under what condition?), If it is accepted by the publishing house" (clauses).

Types of writing and subordinating unions

When making a morphological analysis of the union, it is necessary to indicate its meaning and morphological features (a coherent or subordinate unchanged word), and also to indicate its syntactic role.

Writing unions are divided into:

1) Connecting, which include "and", "yes", "not only ... but also", "how ... and". For example: "As yesterday, and today it's snowing".
2) Defensive: "but", "a", "yes" (in the meaning of "but"), "but", "however." For example: "We are born in different countries, but we all do not want war!"
3) Separative, this group includes unions "or", "either", "then ... then", "not that ... not that". For example: "From the right, then to the left, there was a rumble of falling trees."

In turn, subordinate unions are divided into:

1) Temporary: "when", "before", "while", "only". For example: "We were still asleep when a phone call came."
2) Explanatory, this group includes: "what", "to", "how" and others. For example: "He said that his friend visited him."
3) Causal: "because", "because", "due to the fact that". "As the sun has set, there is a chill."
4) Conditional: "if", "time", "how soon", "whether", "if only". For example: "If you only wanted, if you only knew."
5) Conjuring: "although", "despite the fact that". "Although it was already morning, the city was still asleep."
6) Targeted: "to", "in order to", "in order to". For example: "To love music, you have to listen to it."
