A linker, or conjunction, is a word or combination of words that connect words, phrases or clauses in a sentence.  In this lesson we're focusing on "unless", "as long as", and "in case". These conjunctions are used to introduce a condition.  "As long as" and "in case" can be used instead of "if". "Unless" can be used instead of "if...not".
