Under this category, we have included only pure conjunctions,
i.e. elements that are used to introduce main or secondary
sentences, and have avoided the inclusion of prepositions and
adverbs that function as conjunctions as well. These have been
treated in the respective categories.
Like prepositions, we can distinguish between two kinds of
conjunctions in Greek:
- A finite set of simple conjunctions: e.g. `kai', `alla',
`myn', `oute'; and
- A productive set of conjunctions formed periphrastically,
with some word/phrase combined by a conjunction:
e.g. `dhedhomenou oti', `an kai', etc. The tagging of these multiword
forms must be performed by a special mechanism.
