SCONJ: subordinating conjunction

Definition

A subordinating conjunction is a conjunction that links constructions by making one of them a constituent of the other. The subordinating conjunction typically marks the incorporated constituent which has the status of a (subordinate) clause.

In Turkish subordinate clauses are mainly formed by suffixation (see the discussion in tr-overview/special-syntax). However, there are a few words that form subordinate clauses, notably ki and diye. The question particle mI (mı/mi/mu/mü) and clitic dA (da/de) may also form subordinate clauses. We also mark the words, such as madem and eğer, that are syntactically and semantically redundant but signal beginning of a subordinate clause.

For coordinating conjunctions, see CCONJ.
