Being a writer I need to keep perfecting my grammar, so I'm always glad to learn something new. But having said that I will always need an editor, because writer's are blind to their own mistakes, unfortunately.
However, I can still improve thus making my editor's job a little easier. *wink*
Someone asked me a question, which I was not entirely sure of. Is "then" a conjunction?
I thought it was, hmm?
So I decided to look it up, just to be sure.
Yes, "then" is a conjunction. To be more precise its a conjunction adverb.
A conjunctive adverb is an adverb that connects two clauses. Conjunctive adverbs show cause and effect, sequence, contrast, comparison, or other relationships.
