And (/ænd/) is a coordinating conjunction, and one of the most common words in English.[1]

"And" is generally pronounced /ænd/, but this is often subject to vowel reduction to a weak form /ənd/ or /ən/, particularly in fixed phrases, e.g. "fish and chips" (/fɪʃənʧɪps/).

It may also be written as & (an ampersand).
