    was/were [2]

    hello Svartnik

    what do you mean by 'dying subjunctive mood'? and 'dying'?
    you mean the usage is dying out?
    if it is so, with 'wish' both 'was/were' are correct and acceptable?

    tq.

    Have you heard about the second law of termodynamics? The entropy is growing languagewise. Both was and were are okay. I am not sure what examiners say, though.
