Adverbial conjunctions

The adverbial conjunctions join two unequal clauses or phrases together. The traditional term for this is sub-ordinating conjunction, it is assumed here for compatibility with other languages. Adverbial conjunctions are a subset of particles, so they do not inflect at all.

The adverbial conjunctions are: ellei, että, jahka, jollei, jos, joskin, jos kohta, jotta, koska, kun, kunhan, mikäli, vaikka, (kunnes). Further reading: VISK § 818
