Keannu, I don't know if you noticed but recently I edited a lot of your posts so that the quoted piece of writing appears above the question, as I have done to post #1 above. It makes much more sense to have it that way round. Please post these questions in that format from now on. It means that we read the piece of writing first and then have a question that refers back to it, rather than being faced with the opening words "What does XXX mean?" when we haven't even had the opportunity to read those words yet. Thanks.
PS - In this particular post, I have put the word you are querying in bold. I initially looked at your post on my phone and the underlining of "would" is barely visible, making it hard to spot the relevant word.
