[Lingtyp] Discourse connectives that do not occur at clause edges

Does anyone know of language(s) with a discourse connective (roughly
defined as any word that relates two event arguments expressed as clauses)
1. Has a dedicated (fixed) position in the clause
2. Does NOT occur clause-initial or -finally
The example I have in mind is Thai /kɔ̂ɔ/ and Lao /kaø/, which always occur
after the subject. I'm also wondering how much this is specific to
Southwestern Tai (or Kra-Dai more generally).
I appreciate every help. Thank you all in advance.
