Subjunctive Mood (Were/Was)
Transcript of Subjunctive Mood (Were/Was)
Indicative mood, or THE FACTS use 'was'.
Subjunctive mood, or THE STINKING, FILTHY TRAITOR TO REALI- we mean, THE LIES use 'were'. Are you ready to fill in some examples?
Okay!! Here we go!! "I _____ hungry, so I ate my CDs. (Delicious.)" "If I _____ REALLY hungry, I would eat my pants. (Also delicious.)" However, like everything in the English language, there are a couple exceptions to the rule.
If you want to use the subject 'you', even if the sentence is indicative, use 'WERE'.
If the subject is PLURAL, (again, even if the sentence is indicative) use 'WERE'. "They _____ baking cake." "He _____ doing homework." And we're done!!
Are there any questions before we begin our activity?
