Yet another clause here, now its the adverbial one.

The adverbial clause as the name suggests, acts as an adverb describing the verb in means of cause, time, reason, etc.

But in Umbrean there is no "real" adverbial clause as they are formed through a noun phrase followed by a postposition and treated like any normal postpostional phrase

English
I fell because you punched me


Umbrean
With
Pronouns
Süün gnim sëa novösëkhsoügnau djainavai loymösikhsi
Without
Pronouns
Novösëkhsoügnau djainavai loymösikhsi

As it can eb seen comparing to other previous lessons, you make the "reason" into a noun clause and put a "because" adposition after and its all set and done
