Paired Conjunctions/Correlative Conjunctions
Paired conjunctions are conjunctions that are typically always used together. We use them in two different parts of the sentence to make them work
Common paired conjunctions are: not only… but also, either… or, neither…. nor…, both… and”. Their purpose is still to connect one clause/entity of a sentence to another but, unlike other conjunctions, they can not be used alone. They need their partner conjunction. They are usually used for emphasis.
