In this sentence, what type of connection is the phrase "not only"?

1 Answer

  • In this sentence, the type of connection that the phrase "not only" represents is correlative connection.
    Not only, accompanied by but also is a pair of correlative conjunctions. That means that two equal grammatical items are joined in one sentence. So this person did, or rather didn't do either of these things.
