    Smile Diagraming "if"

    The dictionary says "if" is a conjunction. How is it diagramed in a sentence like

    If you brush your teeth three times a day you will not get cavities.

    Re: Diagraming "if"

    Reverse the sentence:

    You will not get cavities if you brush your teeth three times a day.

    It is still a conjunction, whether at the start of the sentence or in the middle as it is joining two phrases.
