Tense-Patterns in Conditional Sentences.
Tregidgo, P. S.
English Language Teaching Journal, v34 n3 p186-91 Apr 1980
Attempts to show that conditional sentences are based on two separate binary choices: the choice between "open" and "theoretical" and the choice between "event condition" and "truth condition." Truth conditions, unlike event conditions, are concerned not with what might or might not happen but with what might or might not be true. (PJM)
