    • n conjunction In astronomy, the meeting of two or more stars or planets in the same longitude: as, the conjunction of the moon with the sun, or of Jupiter and Saturn. When a planet, as seen from the earth, is in the same direction as the sun, it is said to be in conjunction with the sun. This, however, in the case of an interior planet, may be either when it passes between the sun and the earth or when it is on the further side of the sun; the former is the inferior and the latter the superior conjunction. A superior planet can be in conjunction with the sun only when the sun is in a direct line between, it and the earth. See syzygy and opposition.
    • n conjunction In grammar, a connective particle serving to unite clauses of a sentence, or coördinate words in the same sentence or clause, and indicating their relation to one another. There are two principal kinds of conjunctions, coordinating and subordinating: the former joining clauses of equal order or rank (as, he went and I came); the latter joining a subordinate or dependent clause to that on which it depends (as, I went where he was; he was gone when I came). Most conjunctions are of adverbial origin, and some, as, for instance, also, share almost equally the character of both parts of speech.
