    Subjunctive

    Grammar mavens!

    Please explain the subjunctive voice as clearly and plainly as possible, and give plenty of examples.

    :)

    It is the subjunctive "mood". Do you need any more after Cas's link?

    That's what I mean! I didn't even know it was the subjunctive mood. :(

    Actually, the stuff over there was a little too academic for me. It went right over my head. If I can study it in bite-sized chunks maybe I can really learn that stuff. (Whether I would ever need to know it is perhaps another matter.)

    Maybe I should just keep working on conditionals for the time being.

    :P

    Thanks. I have only looked at the Bartleby site so far, but I am sure they are all useful sites.

    :D

    After you review them, I'll be happy to work on it with you, if you'd like.
