Technically, it is not a conditional because there is no condition listed. One could say that there is a condition as an ellipsis or one could say that it uses "would" for presumption/expectation.Originally Posted by RonBee
- If Ron studies hard he will learn his conditionals.
- After tobacco is lit it burns.
Teachers, how about some more first conditional sentences? (I am not sure I will remember it yet.) About a hundred will do. :wink:
- If Ron asks a question he will get an answer.
- If you touch a hot stove you will get burned.
Hmmm. Leave it to you to ask a question I can't answer. I am used to zero conditionals beginning with "if" or "when". My instinct is to say no to an "after" sentence, but I can't find a good reason. It is not much different from "when". :?Originally Posted by RonBee
