1 Conjunctions Y – E, O – U, Pero, Sino, Sino Que Sp. 3 H c.11

2 Conjunctions Youve probably noticed that Spanish tends to run words together: mi hijos – mijos In this presentation, well look at how this effects the use of Y (and) and O (or).

3 Conjunctions Running words together that have the same back to back vowel sounds cuases a problem when it causes an entire word to disappear: Padres y hijos – Padres y hijos – padres yjos To solve this problem the following changes occur and need to be recognized and used…

4 Conjunctions The Y changes to E in front of words that begin with I or hi (EXCEPT before words that begin with hie): Padres y hijos Padres e hijos

5 Conjunctions The O changes to U in front of words that begin with o or ho: Bolígrafos o hojas de papel Bolígrafos u hojas de papel

6 Conjunctions The word PERO is typically used to mean but… He didnt arrive early but at least he came. No llegó temprano pero por lo menos él vino.

7 Conjunctions The expressions SINO and SINO QUE can also be translated to mean BUT, but only if the follow conditions are met… 1. The first phrase or clause in NEGATIVE 2. The second phrase or clause contradicts the first Ie…He didnt arrive early, but (rather) late. Ie…No llegó temprano, sino tarde.

8 Conjunctions The expressions SINO and SINO QUE are distinguished by… 1. The first phrase or clause in NEGATIVE 2. The second phrase or clause contradicts the first 3. The expression is followed by a conjugated verb Ie…Paco no llegó temprano, sino que llegó a tiempo.
