    if you be quiet...or if you keep quiet?
    the second one i suppose but why can't we use the first one then?

    Re: if

    Hello Fariba,
    I think both are correct. But I'd say if you are quiet rather than if you be quiet. Be quiet may be found as a subjunctive but I don't think it's that common.
    Anyway, I'm not a teacher. Wait for somebody else to explain this to you.
