Rina Hong:

Subjunctive in English is the simple form of the verb when used after certain verbs indicating that one person wants another person to do something.
The word That must always appear in subjunctive sentences. If it is omitted, most of the verbs are followed by the infinitive.

E.g.      - We urge that you leave now
                                     Simple Form
             - We urge you to leave now

Advise      Decree      Move      Prefer      Request

Suggest   ask      Demand   Order      Propose

Require     Urge          Command    Insist   Recommend   Stipulate

In the following rule, verb indicates one of the above verbs.

Subject +   Verb   +    That   +   Subject      +       [ verb in simple form ]
   (any tense)

E.g.     The Judge Insisted That the Jury return a verdict immediately.
              The Doctor Suggested That his patient stop smoking
    The University requires that all its students take this course.

The Simple form of the verb is also used after impersonal expressions with the same meaning as the above verbs. The adjectives that fit into this formula include the following.

Advised   Necessary   Recommended      urgent      Important

Obligatory   required   Imperative   Mandatory   Proposed    Suggested

In The following rule, adjective indicates one of the above adjectives.

It +   be   +    adjective    +    That   +    subject    +    [verb in simple form]
        (Any tense)

E.g.       It is necessary that he find the books.
              It was urgent that she leave at once.
              It has been proposed that we change the topic

hi Rina,

i want to ask a quoestion.

well, you know that we used to uses "s" at the end of verb (kata kerja apa seh verb ya? :hammer: )

such as  " i goes to school" for a routine task.

but if i use "always" then should i still use "s"

like " i always goes to school" or "i always go to school"

 [at]  hatRed
Let me try to rep :)
The "s" behind verb, is only used in present tense, when the subject is "He", "She", or "It".
For ex: She goes to school everyday. --> Present tense

But when the subject is "I", then the verb should not been followed by "s".
Ex: I go to school everyday --> Present tense

The words "always", "usually", "sometimes", "rarely" or "never" are the adverbs of frequency. It explains how often you do something and has nothing to do with the grammar. So the pattern will still remain the same (present tense), you only add the adverb in from of verb.

Ex: She always goes to school.
     I always go to school.


yes, the "s" just for He She It

(fool i am :hammer:)

so the grammar will still remain the same. okay

trims ^:)^
