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. -- John Cowan I am a member of a civilization. --David Brin
