Oraciones de ejemplo
  • However, it's crucial that the second part of such a sentence (the apodosis of the conditional) normally also has a modal preterite, often would or could or might, but not will or can or may.
  • In the majority of instances, will and shall express a conditional future and are the forms used in the apodosis of future conditionals (the part without if): If you ask them, they will do it.
  • Well, if the apodosis is assumed to be true, then the conditional relation is truth-conditionally moot.

Origen
