Can we start a sentence with Conjuction 'while' ??
Conjunction “while” denotes two functions
1. Presents contrast
2. Presents simultaneous action.
In performing both the actions, “while” can be used to begin the sentence. For example:
a. While going to school, Joe ran into my childhood friend.
In this sentence, “while” presents simultaneous action. Joe was going to school. When this action was happening, something else happens as well. Joe ran into his childhood friend.
b. While he acknowledged the selfless charity, Joe refused to take money from his rich friends.
In this sentence, “while” is presenting a contrast. Joe acknowledged the charity his friends were extending him, but he did not take the money form them.
Hope this helps.
