Unlike in English, the conjunctions in Slovenian are based on gender and number. Based on its structure, we found out that there are three major types of conjunctions in Slovenian that you must know about. Before getting into the details of that, you should get an overview of the conjunct agreement conducted, which has been supported by several types of research.

Conjunction Agreement

In the Slovenian language, the verbal participle seeks controller of agreement. According to one research, five experiments were conducted, and the experiments documenting the conjunct agreement had valuable results. The findings show that the conjunct agreement in the Slovenian language had three distinct grammars and all of which were in agreement with the highest conjunct (feminine), closest conjunct (neuter), and Boolean Phrase (masculine).

Coordinate Conjunctions

Coordinating conjunctions are called priredni vezniki in the Slovenian language. Here is a list of coordinating conjunctions with examples so that you can practice them when creating your sentences.
