SubclausesEdit

A subclause may be combined with the main clause using a conjunction. That conjunction is not the first member of the subclause, though.

  • Du wet ov han kom hidag. (EN You know if he comes today.)
  • Du wet dat han kom hidag. (EN You know that he coes today.)

One can begin the whole sentence with the subclause and finish it with the main clause. In that case, the main clause must begin with the verb, since the subclause is already the first member of the whole sentence.

  • Ov han kom hidag wet du. (EN You know if he comes today.)
  • Dat han kom hidag wet du. (EN You know that he comes today.)
