It was through Jane`s work that I learned a lot about grammar. Second, you could explain “she asked him to raise his hand” again to me and all the people who have still confused the verbs in this sentence. Our problems are why you used “raise” (currently tense) according to the verb “requested” (past tense), when we have already understood the principle of subject-verb agreement that we should use the plural instead of the single form. In other words, we can understand that “I would like to be there.” The WISH is present and WAS past tense because “I” want the action “be present” to happen in the past, but not shown. Now we do not understand the phrase “she asked him to raise his hand.” Do you think she has asked in the past that he “resuscitate” him in the future? Thank you very much. 2. The subordinate clauses that come between the subject and the verb have no influence on their agreement. Subjects and verbs must agree on the number for a sentence to be sensual. Although grammar can be a bit odd from time to time, there are 20 rules of the subject-verbal chord that summarize the subject fairly concisely.

Most concepts of the verb-subject chord are simple, but exceptions to the rules can make it more complicated. You are right about the subjunctive nature of the sentence. In the case of your sentence, the use of “wish” may lead to the verb “bear” having a subjunctive mood because a wish is expressed. The connective subjunctive mind pairs individual subjects with what we usually consider plural verbs. Subjective mood is losing ground in spoken English, but should nevertheless be used in formal language and writing. In general, you use the perfect voltage past when using subjunctive mood with verbs were next to it. If you`re just trying to let someone know where you are physically, your sentence would be better written: “I`m behind you” or “I`m behind you.” But we also have the adage “I have your back” to say to someone, “I intend to show you my support when you are challenged.” The situation is that there will be a wedding in the future. The sentence is: “You would have had a big cake and many other dishes.”
