this quiz brings back so many memories of 6th grade enlish with ms. peyser
Nov 18th, 2012 at 20:31 GMT
This quiz attracts many FANBOYS.
Nov 18th, 2012 at 20:32 GMT
It was made before 30sec games were introduced.

correct me if I'm wrong but 'or' is a disjunction not a conjunction
Nov 18th, 2012 at 20:39 GMT
okay, so in grammar 'or' is a conjunction (used to join other words - I was thinking of logic. Sorry about that! :-)
Nov 18th, 2012 at 20:47 GMT
Really surprised something as basic as this hadn't already been published.
Nov 18th, 2012 at 21:07 GMT
this is a tough one until you remember what a conjunction is.

...hookin' up words and phrases and clauses....

I finished in 5 seconds :)

The fanboys are always my first guesses in the "figure out the lyrics" or "most common words in..." quizzes.

I'm sorry, but I have to ask...how can you finish a quiz in 4 seconds, etc.? Obviously, you can't type 7 words; do you have shortcuts?
Nov 18th, 2012 at 22:49 GMT
If you know the answers before even clicking start and you're a fast typist, finishing without taking off more than 3 seconds is totally possible. I just tried a second time at max speed and finished with the clock still reading 0:58. Just making a point lol. No one cares how fast you can name conjunctions...
Nov 18th, 2012 at 23:19 GMT
Do Americans use this acronym to learn it? 30 seconds would have stumped me because it took about 15 for me to figure out exactly what this 'Fanboys' thing was about lol. But that's really quite clever.
Nov 18th, 2012 at 23:58 GMT
my teacher taught us BOYSFAN instead of FANBOYS
Nov 19th, 2012 at 00:10 GMT
I was trying "nonetheless" and "nevertheless" for "n" - and still don't know why they wouldn't qualify.
Nov 19th, 2012 at 00:41 GMT
@chriskotx: "nonetheless" and "nevertheless" have to appear in a new sentence. If you try to use them as conjunctions, you get a run-on sentence. (Example: "I ate a sandwich this morning, nevertheless I'm still hungry.") I'm not sure why "since" isn't a coordinating conjunction, though.
Nov 19th, 2012 at 01:21 GMT
I was also taught that since and because are conjunctions when learning FANBOYS.
Nov 19th, 2012 at 01:46 GMT
FANBOYS FANBOYS seven in a row, for and nor but or yet so!
Nov 19th, 2012 at 03:07 GMT
Since and because are subordinating conjunctions. The quiz is on coordinating conjunctions. (Had to look them up, 'cause I wasn't sure myself)
Nov 19th, 2012 at 03:54 GMT
While is considered a coordinating conjunction,
Nov 19th, 2012 at 07:28 GMT
@object_holder: You mean they have to appear in a new independent clause; nevertheless, the general point is correct.
Nov 19th, 2012 at 13:37 GMT
@kayla_nerd: Mine taught FAY SNOB. He was a really weird teacher.

This pneumatic was new to me - pre-college schooling from '72-'84...
Nov 19th, 2012 at 15:03 GMT
@dc1011, you don't think it's possible to type these 7 words in 4 seconds?
Nov 19th, 2012 at 15:21 GMT
Nov 19th, 2012 at 17:02 GMT
@unkpoker: If it makes you feel any better I graduated from high school in 1989 and had never heard, read, or seen FANBOYS until I took this quiz.
Nov 19th, 2012 at 17:09 GMT
@unpoker: ...and during that time no one told you the difference between pneumatic and mnemonic? "Mnemonic" has "mem" like memory. "Pneumatiic" has "pum" like pump.
Nov 19th, 2012 at 18:10 GMT
that little acronym FANBOY actually came in handy for once! lol
Nov 20th, 2012 at 00:18 GMT
And I thought I'd never need to know that. Silly me
Nov 20th, 2012 at 14:59 GMT
everyone correcting @unkpoker: I'm pretty sure he was making a joke, way to take the bait though.
Nov 22nd, 2012 at 01:13 GMT
I prefer the acronym SOYBAFN.
