  11. 11. EXAMPLES
  12. 12. WISHES • About the present: • When we use “wish” to make a wish about the present present, we use the unreal past simple, as in an unreal conditional sentence. • I wish I knew more about European history. • Wishes about the past. • When we use “wish” to make a wish about the past, we use the past perfect, as in an impossible past conditional sentence. • I wish I had been present at the battle of Waterloo. • Wishes with would • We also use “wish” with would when we want someone to do something or not to do something. This is often because we think it is a bad habit. • I wish you wouldn’t keep staring at me! • I wish Pete would phone. • If only • We can use “if only” to make a stronger kind of wish about the present or the past. • If only I knew more about European history! • If only I had studied harder!
  13. 13. • If X had happened, Y would be different. • We often think about past events, and their effects on the present. • If Chris hadn’t gone to the hospital, he wouldn’t be alive today. • If I hadn’t brought a map we would be lost! • If we hadn’t gone to the theatre last night he would be alive today. • If I hadn’t invated Russia, perhaps I still would be Emperor.
