    IF + would ??

    1. discount the likelihood that a new motif starts in a given position if this motif would overlap with a previously learned one.


    2. discount the likelihood that a new motif starts in a given position if this motif overlaps with a previously learned one.

    Hi, my on-line ESL teachers!

    Please take a look above two sentences. I'd like to know how above two sentences sound like differently.

    Thanks!

    Using would just makes it more tentative, Soleiljy. It kinda says "if it happened to".

    This is more real, less tentative. It kinda says, "if it happens to".
