Lecture no. 10 from the course: Learning German: A Journey through Language and Culture
Taught by Professor James Pfrehm | 27 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses
Coordinating conjunctions—such as aber, denn, oder, sondern, and und—allow you to link two dependent clauses in expressive ways. Get the hang of these simple words that let you say complex things. Then unlock the secret of German syntax with the Word Position Model. Finally, study a handy class of noun modifiers, called der-words, that have endings patterned after the definite article.
