Grammar mavens!

Please explain the subjunctive voice as clearly and plainly as possible, and give plenty of examples.

It is the subjunctive "mood". Do you need any more after Cas's link?

That's what I mean! I didn't even know it was the subjunctive mood. :(

Actually, the stuff over there was a little too academic for me. It went right over my head. If I can study it in bite-sized chunks maybe I can really learn that stuff. (Whether I would ever need to know it is perhaps another matter.)

Maybe I should just keep working on conditionals for the time being.

:p

Thanks. I have only looked at the Bartleby site so far, but I am sure they are all useful sites.

:D

After you review them, I'll be happy to work on it with you, if you'd like.

Okay. After I read each of them about ten times.
