  • Admittedly 'other' is not a part of speech. We have grouped conjunctions , adverbs , prepositions , pronouns and interjections on one page for ease of access. 


    Conjunctions


    How do conjunctions work in Welsh?

    Conjunctions are linking words e.g. and, but, because, or. They are used to connect clauses or sentences to form more complex sentences. e.g. 'I want to go out tomorrow but it is going to rain all day.' In this respect conjunctions perform the same function in Welsh as they do in English.

    Many conjunctions in Welsh use a particular construction to join the conjunction to what comes after. Broadly speaking there are three kinds:-

    • Those which take the 'i' form. (most 'time' conjunctions)
    • Those which take the 'bod' form
    • Those which take neither (or either under appropriate circumstances)

    Welsh conjunctions which take the above forms are linked below.  Details of the 'i' and 'bod' forms can be found on the individual word listing pages. Most 'time' conjunctions take the 'i' form but a few take the 'bod' construction.

    Time conjunctions ( mostly taking the 'i' form)

    Other conjunctions ( mostly taking the 'bod' form)

    Conjunctions which take neither (or either)
