Conjunctional clause in German
What is a Conjunctional clause?
The conjunctional clause is a dependent clause, that is always initiated by a subconjunction
The German subconjunctions
The subconjunctions connect the main clause to the conjunctional clause. The following table lists all the important German subconjunctions
|als wenn||falls||obgleich||sooft||wenn auch|
|außer dass||indem||obzwar||sowenig||wie wenn|
|außer wenn||indes||ohne dass||sowie||wiewohl|
Building of German conjunctional clauses
As mentioned above, a conjunctional clause is always initiated by a subconjunction. After that the subject and object of the sentence follow. In German the conjugated form of the verb here always stands at the very end of the sentence!
Conjunction + Subject + Object + conjugated Verb
Examples for sentences with a conjunctional clause
