Subordinating Conjunctions - Part 2


I. Recap

As discussed in another lesson, subordinating conjunctions connect a main clause to a subordinate clause. A clause is similar to a sentence in that it contains a subject and predicate. Subordinate clauses do not function independently like sentences do. This lesson focuses specifically on additional subordinating conjunctions found in German while the most frequent are discussed in a different lesson.

II. Additional Subordinating Conjunctions

Als ob

Like in English, this conjunction conveys how something seems though, in reality, it is usually the contrary.

Der Verkäufer tat, als ob er mich gut kannte.
The salesman acted as if he knew me well.
