    Cool subjunctive

    Hello,

    Is the subjunctive needed here, please?

    -I recommmend that he does/do something.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Re: subjunctive

    In British English, the subjunctive is correct, but not essential. We are more likely to say, "I recommend that he does /should do something".
