    Conditional type

    Hello,
    What kind of conditional sentence is this:
    If I like it I do it.
    (It's a song's name.)


    I think it's either conditional 1 or no conditional at all.

    Cheers!

    I always forget which conditional is which. Let us forget terminology.

    If I like it I do it.
    This refers to some general truth or could refer to a specific situation if there were a 'will': 'I will do it'.

    First conditional: We are talking about the future. We are thinking about a particular condition or situation in the future, and the result of this condition.
    Zero conditional: We use the so-called zero conditional when the result of the condition is always true, like a scientific fact.

    Zero cond.

    Yes, you can say it is zero conditional (grammatical terminology) instead of ‘no conditional’. A comma is necessary when the if clause is placed before the main clause.

    Re: Conditional type

    Thank you

    By the way, you're fully right!
    I forgot the comma because I thought there were no comma, but I was wrong
