  • English - ,

    Most of the time, "as long as" and "so long as" are pretty much interchangeable:

    and

    fourth question here

    So are "provided that" and "on condition" -- they all set up conditions upon which the main clause's statement would be true.

    Two others in your list are verbs, and they are handled differently:
    ~ Imagine that you are a father with three teenagers living at home.
    ~ Suppose that you are a father with three teenagers living at home.

    But these are different still:
    ~ What if you were a father with three teenagers living at home?
    ~ I wonder what life is like for a father with three teenagers living at home.

    I hope this makes sense!
