Student or Learner
I have 2 challenging questions which I'd really like some help with answering.
1) Why does English have different verb forms depending on Person?
e.g. I = am, you = are, he/she = is etc.
Why can't it be I am, you am, he/she am?
2) Why do we use 'were' when using the subjunctive mood?
i.e. why is it correct to say 'If I were a bird' instead of 'If I was a bird'?
Hello I am 'The French',
Most European languages have Latin origin and it is simply like that. I speak French, Portuguese and Spanish and in these three languages it is the same.
It is like in Japanese, why you write the verb before the subject ? (example : watashi wa).
Hope it's help you.
Have a nice day.
