Adding conditions with conjunctions

 

Techniques > Use of language > Using conjunctions > Parts of speech > Adding conditions with conjunctions

Method | Example | Discussion | See also

 

Method

Use subordinating conjunctions, including after, although, as, because, before, how, if, once, since, than, that, though, till, until, when, where, whether and while, to create dependency or add conditions.

The subordinating conjunction is put before the subordinate clause. The subordinate clause may be before or after the main clause. Use the order of the phrases to create the desired impact.

Example

I will give you a chance after you have proved yourself.

After you have proved yourself, I will give you a chance.

Discussion

Subordinating conjunctions can be used to add conditions. The order of their use in sentences has a different dynamic. Notice the different emotional dynamic of the two examples above. The first example (with the main clause first) creates hope and then puts conditions on it. The second example (with the subordinate clause first) uses the Hurt and Rescue principle by creating uncomfortable tension and then offering a way out.
