I have a problem... I simply want to know the translations of a few conjunctions 'so that' I can use slightly longer sentences or put two ideas together. I have my jolly good dictionary but there is never one simple translation. How on earth can I learn your language if I don't have a simple translation in mind? As you know, I work professionally as a translator so I am no stranger to languages, word-for-word logic, etc., but even in French I could (well, the dictionary, but me too of course!) provide ONE word for ONE conjunction. For example, a few good conjunctions (not but, and, or, too.. I know these and fortunately they are one simple word in Hungarian - but these?... no chance - so how do I know which word to use!?): 1. However = bármennyire, bárhogy, akáhogy is, akárhogymennyire. I know that 'however' can mean 'any way/whichever way', but I'd like the translation for "I do this and this, blabla... However, when it rains, I do that...". I see in the dictionary, the example: However, he may do it or not. Translation? Mindamellett lehet, ... This is not in the original options for 'however'! So why not!? Can't one say "Bármennyire, ..."? Can I have one word please, for 'however', to introduce the second clause to contradict the first? A word to get me by for a few months so I can at least use two clauses! 2. Unless = ha(csak) nem, kivéve hogyha. How does this help me? "I try to study all day unless I have a translation to do" = ?? Can I have one simple word again for 'unless'? 3. Whereas = miután, minthogy, mivel, tekintettel arra hogy, habár, holott, jóllehet, noha, míg ellenben. I'm sorry, but this just makes me sick. How the hell can there be so many different ways to say whereas? It ONLY means the idea of comparison. One doesn't even need context to understand this word. "I like walking whereas Eszter likes running", "I find biology boring whereas my teacher tells me it's the best subject in the world" (for example). One word again, please!!! My goodness I sure did choose a language to learn didn't I. Thanks in advance for this one. It's a biggie.
