    Talking "subject + would + verb"

    Could you tell me the general meaning of this kind of structure: "subject + would + verb"?
    When do we use it? This question may seem general, but please tell me the most popular meaning.
    I will appreciate all replies!
    Thanks in advance!

    That is a very common structure, there is no "most popular meaning".
