Usage notes[edit]

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.

Noun[edit]

無条件 (hiragana むじょうけん, romaji mujōken)

  1. absoluteness, unconditionality
