pentru a face referiri la actiuni obisnuite din trecut:

in propozitii conditionale
Exista trei tipuri de propozitii conditionale (IF Cluase)
Formati primul tip de propozitie conditionala cu If + prezent simplu si will / prezent simplu / imperativ + infinitiv scurt (in propozitia principala)
If I run, I will catch the train.
She smiles if you greets her.
Read that book, if you find it.
Forma contrasa este cea uzuala in engleza vorbita.
If Frank doesn’t come, we’ll start without him.
Este posibila inversarea subordonatei cu propozitia principala:
If I get home early, I’ll phone you.
I’ll phone you, if I get home early.
Conditionalul de tip I se foloseste astfel:
cand situatia din propozitia conditionala este probabila sau se presupune ca se va intampla. Desi sensul poate fi de prezent sau viitor, verbul din propozitia conditionala este intotdeauna la timpul prezent.
The vase will break, if you drop it.
Will you get me some milk, if you go to the supermarket?
verbele modale precum can, may, must, should il inlocuiesc pe will in propozitia principala:
You can enter the stadium, if you have a ticket.
If he isn’t in, you may leave a message.
John must work very hard, if he wants to get elected.
If you want to wear that dress this summer, you should lose some weight.
cu doua timpuri prezente (unul in fiecare propozitie) pentru a indica rezultate automate sau obisnuinte:
If you push that button, it comes on.
If you mix red and blue, you get purple.
Should poate fi plasat dupa sau in loc de if cand vorbim despre o posibilitate mai putin probabila. Notati ca subiectul este asezat dupa should.
If I should visit India, I’ll go and see the Taj Mahal.
Should I visit India, I’ll go and see the Taj Mahal.
Pentru a indica sfatul, comanda sau cererea, in propozitia principala se pot folosi: could, would, had better, ought to:
Bill had better get his hair cut, if he wants to get that job.
I would pay the fine, if you don’t want to get into trouble with the police.
cu timpuri prezente alternative (continue sau perfecte) in propozitia conditionala:
If you are making a cup of coffee, I’ll have one too.
If the children have finished dinner, I’ll wash up.
Unless = If … not
Unless it’s a sunny day tomorrow, we won’t go on that picnic = If it is not a sunny day tomorrow, we won’t go on that picnic.
Otherwise = or else
If you don’t study, you’ll fail the exam = you must study, otherwise you’ll fail the exam = you must study, or else you’ll fail the exam.
IF Clause – Tipul II : pentru a indica improbabilitatea sau ipoteza
Formati al doilea tip de propozitie conditionala cu If + past simple si would + infinitivul scurt (in propozitia principala)
If you invited her she would come.
If you did not invite her she would not come.
Tipul II de conditional se refera la prezent sau la viitor. Trecutul din subordonata conditionala nu are sens de trecut. Este un conjunctiv care indica improbabilitatea sau ipoteza.
Conditionalul de tipul II se foloseste:
cand situatia din subordonata conditionala este putin probabil sa se petreaca sau reprezinta exprimarea unei posibilitati ipotetice:
If I won the lottery, I would stop working. (but I don’t belive I win)
cu referire la o situatie prezenta sau viitoare, foarte improbabila sau ireala:
If I were you, I’d buy a bigger car. (but I’m not you)
If the distance to the train station were shorter, I’d walk there. (the distance is unlikely to change)
Conjunctivul verbului to be este were pentru toate persoanele. Totusi, in engleza vorbita auzim uneori was la persoana I si a III-a.
If I was to visit…
If it was a nice day…
pentru a face o sugestie politicoasa sau pentru a exprima o ipoteza perfect realizabila:
If we go in two cars, we’ll be more comfortable.
If we went in two cars, we’d be more comfortable.
Conditionalul de tipul II este considerat mai politicos pentru a face o sugestie sau a da un sfat:
Will I catch the shops open, if I run?
You will catch them open, if you walk. Sau mai politicos:
You would catch them open, if you walked.
verbele modale la un timp trecut il pot inlocui pe would. Sensurile se modifica in mod corespunzator:
If Mr. Lynch applied for the job, he would get it. (sigur in mod virtual)
If Mr. Lynch applied for the job, he might get it. (posibil)
If Mr. Lynch got the job, he could start next Monday. (abilitate)
cu forme continue fie in subordonata conditionala, fie in propozitia principala:
If I weren’t at work today, I would be at home mowing the lawn.
If I were giving a presentation, I’d use slides.
Formati al treilea tip de propozitie conditionala cu If + mai mult ca perfect si would have + participiu trecut (in propozitia principala)
If they have invited David he would have gone.
Forma contrasa: atat I had cat si I would = I’d
If they’d invited David, he’d have gone.
Tipul III de conditional se refera la trecut si indica imposibilitatea. Este imposibila indeplinirea actiunii din principala pentru ca actiunea din subordonata conditionala nu s-a petrecut.
Conditionalul de tipul III se foloseste:
cand situatia din subordonata conditionala este in trecut, deci imposibila:
If we had taken an umbrella with us last night, we would not have got wet. (We didn’t take an umbrella last night so we got wet.)
cu could (cu referire la abilitate sau permisiune) si might (cu referire la posibilitate) in locul lui would in propozitia principala:
I could have made a cake, if you had told me it was your husband’s birthday. (abilitate)
I might have won the squash game last night, if I hadn’t eaten such a big meal before playing.
cu forme continue fie in subordonata conditionala fie in principala:
If the driver hadn’t been going slowly, he would have crashed into the car in front.
He would have been driving faster, if he hadn’t realised the danger.
In engleza vorbita tipurile II si III de conditional apar amestecate:
Luckily it didn’t rain. If it had rained, I would be wet now.
I didn’t pass my driving test. If I had passed it, I could be driving my car now.
If only se poate folosi la toate cele trei tipuri de conditional pentru a sublinia speranta sau regretul
If only the wind blows in the right direction, we’ll get back to the shore safe and sound. (prezent = speranta)
If only we had an engine on this boat, we could get back in no time. (trecut simplu = dorinta)
If only we had taken a siren with us, we could have sent an S.O.S. (mai mult ca perfectul = regret)
Will / would / could / should si alte verbe modale nu se folosesc de obicei in propozitia conditionala. Exista si exceptii:
If you would ask him for me, I would be grateful. (solicitare politicoasa)
If my brother would tell me why he’s so upset, perhaps I could help. (pentru a indica vointa)
