A Corpus Analysis of "Would"-Clauses Without Adjacent "If"-Clauses.
Frazier, Stefan
TESOL Quarterly, v37 n3 p443-66 Aut 2003
Reports findings of a corpus analysis of a grammatical structure taught in intermediate- or advanced-level English-as-a-Second-/Foreign-Language texts: clauses that contain the modal "would" to signify hypothetical and counterfactual meaning. Categorizes the conditional and hypothetical uses of would-clauses in spoken and written corpora and offers pedagogical suggestions based on the findings. (Author/VWL)
