For Review & Later References
Numerous times had I went over the Subjunctive Mood before, but I cannot still memorize it well XDDD.
So the article is here, for me, to remember it, once again.
may sb. do
wish sb. sth.
May you succeed.
Wish you a happy day.
It is very/high/… time that sb. should do/did …
作文的结句常用。e.g. It is high time we rose up and fought back to the invaders.
It is + adj. + important/vital/essential/required/suggested/necessary/demanded/natural/impossible/strange that … (should) do …
sb. insist (作坚持要求)/suggest (作建议)/demand/command/advocate/desire/require/request that … (should) do …
e.g. He insisted he was innocent and be set free. 后面的be set free在初见者看来比较的奇怪，如果直译过来：他坚持认为他是无辜的并且坚持要求他被释放。就很好理解了。当然这个套路早就不新鲜了，但仍然记录一下。
in if conditional statement:
|与过去事实相反||If sb. had done/been sth.||sb. would/should/could/might have done sth.|
|与现在事实相反||If sb. did/were sth.||sb. would/should/could/might do sth.|
|与将来事实相反||If sb. did/were sth.|
were to do
|↑ the same as above|
e.g. If they had started the early morning yesterday, they would be here now.
虚拟条件句没有用 if 显式地 (explicitly)表示，而是依靠短语、上下文等方式表示。
But for the war, we would be living happily and have our loved kids now.
What would I have been without your assistance when I was in rags?
He betrayed his soul to Lucifer by dressing up as a girl to earn money. Otherwise, he would have been eating earths.
4) If it were/had not been not for … 句式
倒装：条件句中省去 if，将 were/had 提至句首。
Had it not been for your help, I wouldn’t have won the competition.
Were it not you, who would it have been?
wish, if only
would rather, as if/though
as if 特别的一点是，它不一定虚拟。
