[*] 222. Conjunctions, like prepositions (cf. § 219), are closely related to adverbs, and are either petrified cases of nouns, pronouns, and adjectives, or obscured phrases: as, quod , an old accusative; dum , probably an old accusative (cf. tum, cum); vērō , an old neuter ablative of vērus; nihilōminus, none the less; proinde , lit. forward from there. Most conjunctions are connected with pronominal adverbs, which cannot always be referred to their original case-forms.
