In grammar a "copulative conjunction" is the connection of linguistic units (words, clauses, or sentences by words such as 'and, plus, or also') that have an additive or causal relation. A greater meaning arises, a whole greater than the sum of the parts, when the related ideas are conjoined. The print's title indicates that the twins' connection was of just such a type.
