    Re: Wanted that

    No.

    'He wanted to die there.'

    'He wanted us to leave as soon as possible.'

    'He asked us to question him.'

    You can follow "he asked that" with the subjunctive, as shown above.

    Re: Wanted that

    In case it's not quite clear, the "ed" at the end of "questioned" has been crossed out in GoesStation's example sentence above. Sometimes, it's hard to see the "score through" line over bold text.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Wanted that

    "He wanted that his friend die there".

    "He wanted that we leve as soon as possible".

    "He asked that we question him".

    Now these are correct right?

    Re: Wanted that

    Okay, so it is not correct to use that with all the sentences right? It can onky be used with some sentences because I wanted to know how to write or speak with the word "that"?
