Re: Were you to have + past participle
[QUOTE=cheer965;935239" Were you to have turned left at the lights, you would have got here ten minutes earlier."
I wonder if this sentence is the inversion of if clause:
--> If you had turned left at the lights, you would have got here ten minutes earlier."
[/QUOTE]The second has virtually the same meaning as the first, but it is not an inversion of it.
If you were to have turned ... - were you to have turned ...
If you had turned ... - had you turned ....
