What is - if there is - the German term for words that indicate a contrary "Nebensatz"?

  • These words don't connect a main clause with a subordinate clause (Nebensatz), they connect two main clauses. An example for a conjunction which is used for contrary subordinate clauses is obwohl. Such subordinary clauses are called Konzessivsätze. – RHa Oct 11 '17 at 14:57

Words such as aber, jedoch, and dennoch are called Konjunktion, in plural Konjunktionen.

  • That's too general. There are many other Konjunktionen which are quite different from those mentioned in the question. – RHa Oct 12 '17 at 6:48
