    How can i know this adverb or conjunction (yet) what is the differences between them ?


    036.074 Yet they take (for worship) gods other than God, (hoping) that they might be helped!

    036.077 Doth not man see that it is We Who created him from sperm? yet behold! he (stands forth) as an open adversary!

    036.049 They will not (have to) wait for aught but a single Blast: it will seize them while they are yet disputing among themselves!

    Re: adverb or conjunction (yet)

    This is the third thread you have started today on conjunctions/adverbs.

    Might I venture to suggest that it is more useful to be able to use the words than to label them?

    There is also the point that your quotations are from a religious source. The language from such sources as the Bible, the Qur'an, the Torah, etc does not reflect modern usage.

    1- We can talk about adverbs and conjunctions when we are dealing with sentences. Quran's Ayes are not complete sentences sometimes.
    2- For your first Aye you should also write the previous Aye so we can think about "yet" later.But I guess it is a conjunction.
    3- "yet" is conjunction in Aye 036.077
    4- "yet" is adverb in Aye 036.049
    5- I am not quite sure about what I said in 3 and 4.
    6- take a look at this page:

    Yet - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    7- Just take a look at the original text. When it comes to "laaken" or similar words it is probably conjunction.
