Re: French Subjunctive

I love it. It gives you a whole extra dimension to express yourself. You can use it to convey the idea of something virtual - a potential or intended action.

Would that it were used more in English.
This why some suggest that French be a language for philosophers but English the talk of shopkeeper's.

(note use of both subjunctive and grocer's apostrophe)
