οὖν affixed to a relative pronoun has a generalizing force and makes it indefinite ( cross339 e). Such indefinite relative pronouns are construed like the indefinite τὶς or demonstratives; and do not introduce relative clauses (unlike whosoever, etc., which are both indefinite and relative).

So with adverbs ( cross346 c), as ὁπωσοῦν in any way, no matter how (= utique not = utcunque). Thus, οὐδ' ὁπωσοῦν not even in the slightest degree.

a. Simply placed after relatives οὖν has a strengthening force; as ὥσπερ οὖν as in fact (often in parentheses), οἷός περ οὖν just as in fact.
