Conjunctivul a disparut aproape complet in engleza. Se mai pastreaza anumite forme - mai ales la trecut - pentru a exprima indoiala, regretul sau situatiile reale.

A. Forma.

  1. Conjunctiv prezent - are aceasi forma la INFINITIVUL fara to. Are aceeasi forma pentru toate persoanele.

God save the king!

They be damned!

  1. Conjunctiv trecut - are aceeasi forma ca si trecutul simplu. Verbul be are forma were pentru toate persoanele.

It's time we went home.

I wish I were nicer.

  1. Conjunctiv mai mult ca perfect - are aceeasi forma ca mai mult ca perfectul.

We wished we had had better weather.

B. Utilizare.

  1. Conjunctiv prezent.

Heaven help me!

God bless you! (adesea adresat unei persoane care a stranutat)

anumite verbe primesc that.should, mai ales in constructii pasive. In special in engleza americana should este adesea omis si in locul lui se foloseste conjunctivul prezent al verbului subordonat. Iata cateva din aceste verbe (vezi Lectia 15, 16 si 19):

advise    agree arrange ask command
