Unit 40. Would I wish … would
(использование данных оборотов)

We use would ('d) when we imagine a situation or action:

We use would have (done) when we imagine situations or actions in the past:

For would in sentences with if see Unit 37 If I do … and If I did …
(использование оборотов If I do … и If I did …), Unit 38 If I knew … I wish I knew …
(использование оборотов If I knew … и I wish I knew …), Unit 39 If I had known … I wish I had known …
(использование оборотов If I had known … и I wish I had known …).

Compare will ('11) and would ('d):

Sometimes would/wouldn't is the past of will/won't. Compare:

present
TOM: I'll phone you on Sunday.
ANN: I promise I won't be late.
LIZ: Damn! The car
won't start.
-> past
Tom said he'd phone me on Sunday.
Ann promised that she wouldn't be late.
Liz was angry because the car
wouldn't start.

 

Study this example situation:

Unit 40. Would I wish … would

It is raining. Jill wants to go out, but not in the rain. She says: I wish it would stop raining.

This means that Jill is complaining about the rain and wants it to stop.

We use I wishwould … when we want something to happen or when we want somebody to do something. The speaker is not happy with the present situation.

You can use I wish … wouldn't … to complain about things people do repeatedly:

We use I wish … would … for actions and changes, not situations. Compare:

For ‘I wish … were/had (etc.)’ see Unit 38 If I knew … I wish I knew …
(использование оборотов If I knew … и I wish I knew …) and Unit 39 If I had known … I wish I had known …
(использование оборотов If I had known … и I wish I had known …).

You can also use would when you talk about things that happened regularly in the past:

With this meaning, would is similar to used to (see Unit 18 Used to (do)
(использование used to do)):

(использование оборотов Can/ Could/ Would you …?)
