Time-Based Subordinate Conjunctions

Temporal clauses are subordinate clauses which are introduced by temporal conjunctions or other similar expressions, such as conjunction phrases.

Italian time-based subordinate conjunctions indicate the temporal relation between events that take place in the main and subordinate clauses. The temporal relation may involve actions or events occurring simultaneously or at different points in time, whether in the past, present or future.

The conjunctions presented below can be used with verbs in the indicative, subjunctive and conditional, as we will see over the course of this lesson.

quando = when:

Quando entrò nel ristorante, salutò tutti calorosamente.
When he walked into the restaurant, he greeted everyone warmly.
