ifを用いない仮定法を使ってみよう

The Subjunctive Mood Without Using If
ifを用いない仮定法を使って講師と会話してみましょう。
ifを用いない仮定法の代表として、ifの省略法があります。回答例を見てください。 省略法といっても大層なことではなく、語順を入れ替えるいわゆる「倒置」を使います。 ifを使った元の文をみてみましょう。 If I were you, I would receive her offer. こんな風に。ifの省略は、wereやshould、hadが文頭にくる倒置でしか使われないです。 【回答例】 Were I you, I would receive her offer. もし僕が君だったら、彼女のオファーを受けているよ
