"We worked, while they slept."
Translation:Wir arbeiteten, während sie schliefen.
Is the verb always placed on the last part of sentence when using "während"?
Example as a preposition:
Wir schliefen während des Fluges = "We slept during the flight"
Example as a conjunction:
Wir schliefen, während sie arbeiteten = "We slept while they worked"
Some things to note:
- To be used as a preposition, it needs to act on a noun ("during [something]"). It is actually a genitive preposition.
- To be used as a conjunction, it needs to act on a verb phrase ("while [something happens]").
