In linguistics, the term conjunct has three distinct uses:
A conjunct is an adverbial that adds information to the sentence that is not considered part of the propositional content (or at least not essential) but which connects the sentence with previous parts of the discourse. Rare as it may be, conjuncts may also connect to the following parts of the discourse.
It was raining. Therefore, we didn’t go swimming.
It was sunny. However, we stayed inside.
You are such a dork. Still, I love you from the bottom of my heart.
A conjunct is one of the terms that are conjoined in a conjoining construction. Conjuncts are conjoined by means of a conjunction, which can be coordinating, subordinating or correlative. Conjuncts can be words, phrases, clauses, or full sentences.
