Swahili conjunctions (kiunganishi) translated into English

Conjunctions (in Swahili kiunganishi) are single or composite words, usually short, that join, introduce or end a sentence or clause, adding meaning to its relation with other sentences.

Interestingly, many of these words are actually verbs (like katika, from the verb kata, or kuhusu, the infinitive form of the verb husu) or parts of a verb (ijapo, which is only the subject prefix and tense marker for the japo tense).
