Awad Bing (Austronesian, Bel Group, Papua New Guinea) speakers use various conjunctive devices to connect clauses and sentences. Interclausal relations are encoded by conjunctions or by clauses juxtaposed without connecting forms. Sentence connections are indicated by sentential adverbs and conjunctions containing realis and irrealis modal information. Tail-head linkage is indicated by both recapitulated clauses and a clausal pro-form.
