A preposition is a short word that connects a noun, pronoun, or other words in a sentence. It tells where something is or where it is going or when something happens. The prepositions are underlined in the examples below. The dishes are in the cabinet above the dishwasher. Sam will go with you to the beach. The baby crawled to her father. An interjection is a short word that expresses strong emotions and is followed by an exclamation point. It can be a nonsense word. Darn! I just spilled the paint! A coordinating conjunction joins words, phrases, or independent clauses (sentences). When two independent clauses (sentences) are joined by a conjunction, put a comma before the conjunction. Here are the coordinating conjunctions: and, but, yet, so, for, or, nor. The house plans looked great, so the couple signed a contract with the builder. It was Halloween, yet Raymond did not plan to go trick or treating. Janet missed the bus and had to walk to school. (When just one of the clauses joined by the conjunction is independent, no comma is used.) A subordinating conjunction joins a dependent clause (that cannot stand alone as a sentence) to an independent clause (that can stand alone as a sentence). If the subordinating conjunction comes at the start of a sentence, it is followed by a comma. When it comes at the end of a sentence, there is no comma. Here are some common subordinating conjunctions: because, after, before, if, when, as, since, although. As soon as we entered the restaurant, we were eager to order. We were eager to order as soon as we entered the restaurant. Yuck! That looks disgusting.

Underline each preposition, conjunction, and interjection. Then, above each underlined word, identify it as a preposition (P), conjunction (C), or interjection (I). 1. Honey has a high acid content that bacteria and fungi cannot tolerate. 2. Scientists believe that birds evolved from dinosaurs based on numerous feathered dinosaur fossils. 3. When baby panda cubs are born, they are the size of a stick of margarine! 4. Ugh! My zipper just broke. 5. It takes one month for a monarch to transform from an egg to an adult butterfly. 6. Stop! Don’t go in there! 7. Kara didn’t go on the hike because she lost her boots. 8. Help! I can’t swim! 9. The laundry detergent is stored under the sink. 10.
