“So” is a coordinating conjunction. Coordinating conjunctions are words placed between other words, sentences, phrases and clauses of equal importance. They are also known as coordinators and are used to give equal emphasis to a pair of main clauses. A clause is a statement that is either true or false. This is also known as a proposition. There are just seven coordinating conjunctions in English. They are “for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so”. Below are a few examples to study.
