Possessives are used to indicate ownership. The possessive forms of nouns indicate that something (the second of two nouns) belongs to (is possessed by) the noun in question.

Subordinating conjunctions – e.g. “while”, “though”, “however”, “despite”, “because”, “since” – imply that one condition in a sentence depends on (i.e. is subordinate to) another. Commonly, they are used to indicate exceptions to a rule or highlight an alternative.
