Условное наклонение, "would"
Начнем, как обычно, с песни.
If I were the swan, I'd be gone
if I were the train, I'd be late (again)
and if I were the good man
I'd talk with you more often than I do
If I were to sleep I could dream
if I were afraid I could hide
if I go insane
please don't put your wires in my brain
If I were the moon, I'd be cool
if I were the rule, I would bend
if I were a good man
I'd understand the spaces between friends
If I were alone, I would cry
and if I were with you, I'd be home and dry
and if I go insane
will you still let me join in with the game.
Поем и переводим песню. Как здесь используется "would"? Составьте 3-4 аналогичных предложения с этим словом.
Условное наклонение - the conditional - это когда имеется какое-то условие, и затем какое-то следствие. Например:
Замечание: Если в условном наклонение употребляется глагол "to be" в прошедшем времени, то он всегда будет в форме "were" (как в этой песне).
Exercise 1: here are some questions. Please answer them in a sentence or two.
a) If you went to a desert island and could take along only one suitcase, what would you put there?
b) If you were an actor/an actress, who would you play?
c) If I you were invited to a masquerade, what costume would you wear?
d) If you had a magic wand, what would you do?
e) If you were a man (instead of a woman), or visa versa (a woman, instead of a man), what kind of a person would you be?
Another song, with examples of "would":
Away, I'd rather sail away
A man gets tied up to a grouch,
he gives the world
I'd rather be a forest than a street.
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet.
Where is the condition here? And the consequence?
