Lojban has six sets of conjunctions: for sentences, verbs, verb phrases,
noun phrases, and two sets for correlative conjunctions, like
"Both...and" and "either...or" (one for verbs, one for everything else).
In addition, there is a single conjunction (corresponding to "and")
for connecting relative clauses.
