when a sentence has "IF", what auxiliary verbs should i use?
for an example: if i were you, i would not go out.
how about if i translate it to " if i am you, i will not go out."
either or neither the sentences correct?
You're not me, so 'If I am you' is incorrect. Yopu cannot be me, but you can imagine being me. The form 'If I were you' shows that you are imagining something.Originally Posted by kahhong
