Capítulo 6 Study Guide Adverbial clauses are those introduced by conjunctions or conjunctive phrases. Unlike noun clauses + relative clauses, adverbial clauses may precede the main clause: Le daré tu recado a Ernesto, antes de que se vaya or Antes de que Ernesto se vaya , le dare tu recado Adverbial clauses take the subjunctive or the indicative according to the following rules: 1. Conjunctive phrases that denote proviso, supposition, + purpose, are always followed by the subjunctive. The most common conjunctive phrases of this kind are: A fin de que In order that, so that A menos que Unless A no ser que Unless Con tal (de) que Provided (that) En caso (de) que In case (that) No sea (fuera) que Lest (so that…. not), in case that Para que In order that, so that Sin que Without Indalecio no podría ir a su rancho, a menos que tuviera un caballo.

[Indalcio had been parolled without his wife’s knowing about it] Para que and sin que are formed by combining que with the prepositions para and sin respectively.
