What is So (word)?

So is an English word that, apart from its other uses, has become increasingly popular in recent years as a coordinating conjunctive opening word in a sentence. This device is particularly used when answering questions although the questioner may also use the device. So may also be used to end sentences. When ending a sentence, it may be: * a coordinating conjunctive to refer backwards to something previously mentioned * a coordinating conjunctive dangling "so" (sometimes called trailing "so") to refer forwards to something that may be said * an intensifying adverb.
