    Default The meanings of word would

    Hi,

    What does the term would mean in following sentences please?


    1- We can read from the file exactly as we would from any other sources.
    2- In the real-world code the problems would typically be much harder to spot.
    3- Why would you use those functions explicitly?

    Thanks.
    Please explain in a simple manner!

    They are all simple conditionals, relating to hypothetical cases in the future. If ... -> then ...
    1. We read from the file in the same way we (would) read from other sources if we have them.
    2. If we have real world code, then problems are (would be) harder to spot.
    3. If you have to use functions, why (would you) use those ones explicitly?

    Thank you.
    Excuse me. I'm not bad in English and know it more than 70% (in my stand point) and can read the university's books, of course using dictionary every so often, but generally I feel good with that language. My problem is the would. any idea? Or suitable website for leaning it completely?

    I gave you an idea. It's a simple conditional mood. Hang on, I'll do a search for you ... though it's probably better if you did it, since you know which 30% of English you don't know yet. But here's a start.

    Conditional Verb Forms
    Conditionals: Verb Tense in "If" Clauses - The Writing Center
    ENGLISH PAGE - Present Conditionals

    I'd also suggest the purchase of a grammar book if you intend taking English seriously.
