    Default Use of "the year" as conjunction.

    Can I use the year as conjunction like-

    He passed his graduation the year I moved to Columbia.
    or
    The year I moved to Columbia,he passed his graduation.

    Default Re: Use of "the year" as conjunction.

    If you need a label, I'd say 'the year' is used adverbially.

    'He graduated the year I moved to Columbia.'

    'The year I moved to Columbia he became a graduate.'
