    I think the reason you might be confused is that 'conjunctive' is not a noun. The word when used on its own is a 'conjunction', which basically means a joining word like and, but, since, etc. So there is no such thing as simply 'a conjunctive'. It has to have something after it.

    A conjunctive adverb is a type of conjunction. I've found this website which I think explains quite well what a conjunctive adverb does:

    http://www.chompchomp.com/terms/conjunctiveadverb.htm

    Think of a conjunction as the main thing, which I defined above. You might get a conjunctive-something-else (e.g. conjunctive adverb), but this is a subcategory of a conjunction.




    [PS willing to be corrected by anyone who disagrees with this, this is just my understanding].
