a. Conjunctions of Comparison (as ut, quam, tamquam, quasi) also commonly connect similar constructions: -

b. Two or more coordinate words, phrases, or sentences are often put together without the use of conjunctions (Asyndeton, §601. c):

c. 1. Where there are more than two coordinate words etc., a conjunction, if used, is ordinarily used with all (or all except the first): -

2. But words are often so divided into groups that the members of the groups omit the conjunction (or express it), while the groups themselves express the conjunction (or omit it): -

3. The enclitic -que is sometimes used with the last member of a series, even when there is no grouping apparent: -

d. Two adjectives belonging to the same noun are regularly con- nected by a conjunction: -

e. Often the same conjunction is repeated in two coordinate clases:

f. Many adverbs are similarly used in pairs, as conjunctions, partly or wholly losing their adverbial force: -

g. Certain relative and demonstrative adverbs are used correlatively as conjunctions: -
