Hello Hanuman

I would prefer to make up some examples myself, but this page:

[url="http://www.learnenglish.org.uk/grammar/archive/would01.html"]Useful Page about 'Would'[/url]

puts it much better than I would.

If you'd care to look over it, we'd be more than happy to answer any questions...

Mr. P,

I looked at that website myself and I had a question.

Is this correct? I'd rather be poor and happy than rich and sad.

I would have said: I'd rather be rich and happy than poor and sad.

I suspect the examples were chosen on an ideological basis, CJ.

We also find, for instance:

It was at that moment that I knew they would win the game.

This phrase has a particular cyclical resonance within the British Isles.

Though it's also true to say that the British Council has never
complained about overfunding.
