Student or Learner
Here is an example of "would" usage, but I don't quite understand which rule it is guided by:
The first person: - You might want to talk to some random priest.
The second person: - No, I need to talk to somebody who would really know him, who can tell me things about him.
The second person: - Yes, I know who is it, I should talk to my father!
So what does "would" imply here? Is it an expectation? It looks like the second person is thinking over the situation, but i wouldn't say its a presumption, hope, second conditional or past form of will.
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance, Mike
Thanks a lot.
