Conjunctions are of two types: those that join nouns together and those that join sentences together. The meanings of the two types of conjunctions, however, are the same:
|JOINING NOUNS||JOINING SENTENCES|
The conjunctions joining nouns come after the final noun.
DeS 'uS je an arm and a leg
DeS 'uS joq an arm or a leg or both
DeS 'eS ghap either an arm or a leg (but not both)
The noun conjunction je has an additional function: when it follows a verb, it means also, too.
qaleghpu' je I also saw you, I saw you too
As in English, the meaning of such sentences is ambiguous:
I and others saw you or I saw you and others. The exact meaning is determined by context.
In addition to the three listed above, there is one other sentence conjunction:
'ach but, nevertheless, however, even so
This word is sometimes shortened to 'a.
The conjunctions joining sentences occur between the sentences they join.
