Usage notes[ännern]

Generally used to link two things in close relation, such as in English you and I or in the sense of combining two clauses of close relation while deemphasizing their relationship. In English, this would generally be done by combining predicates, as in I went to the store and bought ice cream. It is never used as a conjunction in the fashion of և (ew) (ev), which is used as a coordinating conjunction between two independent clauses, as in I went to the store, and I bought ice cream.

Synonyms[ännern]
