The results exposed that all of three books share more similarities in the usage of these devices of conjunctions. It also shows that additive conjunction “and” is vigorously utilized in all of three books. The bulk of conjunction devices are used for clarity and logicality. The study not only concentrates on the occurrence of conjunction devices but also focuses on the use and importance of conjunction devices for comprehensive writings moreover clarify how conjunctions link the components in a unified, actual and compound writing.
