  1. When you type in all-caps, two things happen:

    **it's harder to read, and
    **it's the online equivalent to SHOUTING (considered rude behavior).

    Please just type in regular mode, not with the Caps Lock feature turned on. Thanks.

  3. There are many subordinating conjunctions that can also be used as prepositions. What they are called in a sentence depends on how they are used.

    Subordinating conjunctions:

    Prepositions:

    So ... you can say that if one of these words is followed by a clause (has a subj and verb), then it's a subordinating conjunction. If it's followed by a noun (sometimes with an adjective or two), then it's a preposition.
