Words to take the place of “if”

Think about this sentence, which is, grammatically, an example of the 1st conditional:

If I am sixty-five I will retire.

The little problem with this sentence is not the grammar, but the word “if”. It’s more logical to say “when” instead of if. So, conditional sentences can be made without using if. And time clauses provide many variations on this idea.
