7) As :- जसा( jasA)
Conjunction "As" is used in multiple ways. 
Main use of "As" is to indicate the way thing happen. So Marathi word is जसा( jasA). Depending on gender and multiplicity of object form willl change
जसा-जशी-जसे-जसे-जश्या-जशी ( jasA-jashI-jase-jase-jashyA-jashI) as per आ-ई-ए-ए-या-ई (A-I-e-e-yA-I) rule

e.g.
As you wish, my lord :- जशी आपली इच्छा, साहेब ( jashI ApalI ichChA, sAheb )
Do it same way as he is doing -> तो जसे करतो आहे तसेच कर (to jase karato Ahe tasech kar )

For other usage of "As" refer the section of frequently used conjunction for that usage. e.g. For usage of "As" as "because", refer previous lesson for conjunction "because".
8) As well as :- तसेच ( tasech),आणि-सुद्धा( ANi-suddhA )
He as well as me  :- तो तसेच मी ( to tasech mI ), 
                             तो आणि मी सुद्धा ( to ANi mI suddhA )
She sang as well as danced :- ती नाचली तसेच गायली ( tI nAchalI tasech gAyalI)
                              ती नाचली आणि गायली सुद्धा ( tI nAchalI ANi gAyalI suddhA)



9) Or :- किंवा ( kiMvA )
He or me :- तो किंवा मी ( to kiMvA mI )
Do or die :- करा किंवा मरा ( karA kiMvA marA )

10) "Nor","Neither-Nor"
There is no concept of "Nor","Neither-Nor" in Marathi. 
Neither-nor statement should be converted to alternate statement using "and" ;"both","as well as" and then translated accordingly in Marathi.
e.g. 
"Neither he nor me were interested" -> "He and me both were not interested" -> तो आणि मी दोघेही इच्छुक नव्हतो ( to ANi mI doghehI ichChuk navhato)

11) if / in case /if only / provided  :- जर-तर ( jar-tar )
If-then statements are discussed separately in Sentence using "If-Then"
