(x) what do you call the words like "and" , "or"?

I think it was just posted a week or so ago, but I can't remember
what those words are called or what foundries sell them as a font.
Thru words or something like that?
Thanks.

"Conjunctions"? Specifically "coordinating conjunctions."

The term "grammar" apparently derives from a Greek term meaning "art of letters," whereas "type" comes from Greek impression or cast. Maybe "Grammarphile" would be a better name for this place, since so much talk of non-cast letters going on here : )

This thread, though, definitely belongs at in some kind of philology website. But would that be called "philogyphile", "logyphile", or simple "philology"?--since "Philology" itself means "love of words."
