Suggest your friend buys a book
I was taught that a sentence with "suggest" goes like this:
I suggest (that) he (should) buy a book. ----> I suggest he buy a book.
Now, when I've found this sentence, I'm confused:
Suggest your friend buys a book.
Re: Suggest your friend buys a book
Most speakers of BrE don't bother with the subjunctive there.
Context is important. Please provide enough for us to be able to deal effectively with your question.
