Non-simultaneous happenings that occur before happenings of the main clause in Munsee use the ‘changed subjunctive conjunct mode’
The main clause may be implied or may be part of a narrative.
The PV -eenda ‘when’ is most often used to introduce these types of sub-phrases.
This ‘’Changed Subjunctive’‘ conjunct mode uses inital change and also adds the modal ending (-e) after the appropriate conjunct suffix from the an-endings set of suffixes.
