    Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals

    Hi,

    The following is the signature of Mod Barb_D's.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
    What does 2nd conditionals refer to?


    Thank you!

    "If I were you, I would google it."
    It is the second conditional.

    Not a teacher.

    I interpreted it as meaning that she's more interested in English usage than discussions about grammar points.
