what is the difference between subordinating and cordinating conjuction.

Co-ordinating conjunctions join together clauses of equal rank. When a conjunction joins two independent statements of equal importance that present in a sentence, it is known as co-ordinating conjunction.The chief co-ordinating conjunctions are: and, but, for, or, nor, neither, also, either, etc.

Subordinating conjunctions join a clause to another on which it depends for its full meaning. When a sentence contains two statements or clauses, ones’ meaning dependant on the other, they are joined by a subordinating conjunction. The chief subordinating conjunctions are: After, because, if, that, though, although, as, unless, before, till, as, while, when, where.
