Webster's 1913 Dictionary
\Con*junc"tion\, n. [L. conjunctio: cf. F.
conjunction. See {Conjoin}.]
1. The act of conjoining, or the state of being conjoined,
   united, or associated; union; association; league.

         He will unite the white rose and the red: Smille
         heaven upon his fair conjunction.     --Shak.

         Man can effect no great matter by his personal
         strength but as he acts in society and conjunction
         with others.                          --South.

2. (Astron.) The meeting of two or more stars or planets in
   the same degree of the zodiac; as, the conjunction of the
   moon with the sun, or of Jupiter and Saturn. See the Note
   under {Aspect}, n., 6.

Note: Heavenly bodies are said to be in conjunction when they
      are seen in the same part of the heavens, or have the
      same longitude or right ascension. The inferior
      conjunction of an inferior planet is its position when
      in conjunction on the same side of the sun with the
      earth; the superior conjunction of a planet is its
      position when on the side of the sun most distant from
      the earth.

3. (Gram.) A connective or connecting word; an indeclinable
   word which serves to join together sentences, clauses of a
   sentence, or words; as, and, but, if.

         Though all conjunctions conjoin sentences, yet, with
         respect to the sense, some are conjunctive and some
         disjunctive.                          --Harris.
