(= because of the possibility ).

condition and its probable result in the future.
Condition (if clause) Result (result clause)

different functions (all of which express a
possible condition and a probable result.)

- Careful ! If you touch that, you Ill burn yourself ! (=
a warning)

Zero Conditional

If .+ present .+ present

When we have a conditional sentence

with two present tenses, it expresses a
situation that is always true. If means
when or whenever. This is called the
zero conditional. Zero conditional
sentences refer to all time, not just the
present or future.
- If I read too much, I get a headache.
- If you drop an egg, it breaks.
Would rather - Wouldnt mind

Read the example below. Do we use the past

tense forms had and would to refer to past time,
or to show unreality?

- If I had $2 million, I would go round the

Id rather (= I would rather) + infinitive
means the same as Id prefer to
- I dont like studying. Id rather be outside
playing tennis.
I wouldnt mind + noun or ing means I
would (quite) like
- I wouldnt mind a cup of tea.
- I wouldnt mind having a few weeks off
