Connectors are linguistic expressions that can put sentences in a specific semantic relationship to one another. There are around 350 expressions in German that are syntactically classified as conjunctions , relative pronouns or certain subclasses of adverbs and particles . The term "connector" So does not define a part of speech , but can play a substantive function, the various parts of speech together.

For the cohesion of texts, connectors play a central role as a coherence maker and “guide” for interpretation; they therefore play an important role in text linguistics .
