- Asserting a conjunction would be irrational if the epistemic grounds for one conjunct defeat those for the other, for example when the two conjuncts are logically inconsistent.
- (linguistics) An adjunct that supplements a sentence with information, not considered to be an essential part of the propositional content, that connects the sentence with previous parts of the discourse, as "therefore" in "It was raining. Therefore, we didn't go swimming."

conjunct (not comparable)
