Is it if I were or if I was?
If itís if I were, why is that when I is singular. Should the verb be singular too?
If I/he/she/it/you/we/they were ...
We can also use 'was' with "If I/he/she/it". Most often it has the same meaning, though there are situations where it doesn't. In English there are only a few subjunctive forms left. For every one of them, there are other ways to state the same meaning.
"If I were/was you" is the counterfactual to "I'm not you".
