Conjunctions in Estonian
- Exercise: using the conjunctions Score -/-
In grammar, a conjunction is a part of speech that connects words, phrases, or clauses.
Coordinating conjunctions join or coordinate two or more items (such as words, main clauses, or sentences) of equal syntactic importance. Coordinating conjunctions generally connect sentence elements of the same grammatical class. Examples: nouns with nouns, adverbs with adverbs, phrases with phrases and clauses with clauses.
There are four kinds on coordinating conjunctions.
1) Cumulative conjunctions
Cumulative conjunctions merely add one statement to another.
|Not only..but also..||Mitte ainult..vaid ka..|
|As ... as||Sama...kui|
2) Adversative conjunctions
Adversative conjunctions express contrast between two statements.
|While||Sel ajal kui|
3) Disjunctive conjunctions
Disjunctive conjunctions present two alternatives.
4) Illative conjunctions
Illative conjunctions express something inferred from another statement or fact.
|Thus / So||Seega|
Subordinating conjunctions join an independent clause and a dependent clause, and also introduce adverb clauses.
|Although||Vaatamata sellele et|
|Because of||Sellepärast et|
|Even if||Isegi kui|
|In case||Juhul kui|
|If / When||Kui|
|As soon as||Niipea kui|
|As long as||Niikaua kui|
|So that||Nii et|
