About this deal

So if you want to make a question out of a conditional construction, you use subject auxiliary inversion of the matrix clause: Would you mind if I smoked? This skinny little guy, couldn’t have been more than twenty years old with pimples covering his face, wiggles his skinny ass out of the patrol car. There may be an objection to the sequence of tenses, but it sounds perfectly alright to me, and I am surprised that only one forero has mentioned it up to now.

If you are in the North America, look out for US/Canadian flag icons on popular product listings for direct links. The stories are witty and beautifully observed scenes from her life and all told in that unmistakable and ever alluring Fenella Fielding voice. Best known for her appearances in the Carry-On films, this book dips into the life and career of Fenella Fielding.

Were to" can be used in the future to emphasize that the conditional form is extremely unlikely or unthinkably horrible. She reminds me of the great raconteur Quentin Crisp - the same love of language, mastery of its rhythms, perfectly formed sentences, and a joie de vivre even when relating her profound despair. You see, when the kids ask me about a point in grammar and I explain it to them, next day they come up to me with things exactly like this. The remote conditional merely presents the request in a slightly more diffident manner, almost as if it is idle speculation. could be inflected to raise my smoking as a very remote possibility, even a hypothetical of the type I don't smoke but would you mind if I did?

It translates a little like "I'm probably going to smoke here regardless of how you feel, but I may move away from you a little because I respect your space. Through all of this Fenella and Simon became great friends and spent a lot of time together that led to many more revelations and observations. Fenella Fielding is best known for her film appearances in Carry On Screaming (1966), Doctor in Clover (1966) and Carry On Regardless (1961). I want to be buried in a nice plush coffin with red velvet inside, with a giant white fluffy pillow to cradle my dead head. I think if you use 'would' you have to use the unreal past in the 'if clause', otherwise you would have to say: Do you mind if I smoke?In this commentary, we illustrate how exploring the meanings and uses of everyday, seemingly mundane, public objects can advance our understanding of health-related practices and the social norms that shape them. The sentence with "smoke" uses "would" as a polite form in a normal present tense, and the sentence is an open conditional with a present-tense verb in each clause. In the later sentence, speaker is indicating though he/she does not think he/she is going to smoke but what if he/she does? I eventually figured that I wasn’t going to get anywhere trying to explain highfalutin rules of grammar to some half wit waitress at a café, so I scrammed.
