AdjectiveEdit

()(じょう)(けん) (mujōken-na (adnominal ()(じょう)(けん) (mujōken na), adverbial ()(じょう)(けん) (mujōken ni))

  1. absolute, unconditional

Usage notesEdit

The use of the particle (na) to make this into an adjective appears to be a relatively recent innovation. This term is listed in many dictionaries[1][2][3][4] only as a noun, which may be used with the particle (no, genitive or possessive) to modify a following noun. As such, the form 無条件な might be viewed as proscribed in more formal contexts.
