BBC SUBJUNCTIVE TheTeachers Corner SUBJUNCTIVE I hope you don't mind if I answer. The subjunctive is often used with the following (alphabetical order, followed by the "It is+adj+that" combinations): ask (that)be determined (that)command thatdemand (that)emphasize (that)insist (that)move (that)on the condition (that)propose (that)provided (that)recommend (that)request (that)require (that)so that it (not)suggest (that)urge (that)It is necessary/important/essential/imperative/vital/critical/crucial/vital that I don't claim this list to be comprehensive, but it includes many of the words most likely to be followed by the "subjunctive". I'd say you're particularly likely to hear the subjunctive after suggest (that) and recommend (that) simply because those words are so often used. As I understand it, the subjunctive is more frequently used in AmE than in BE because "should do" might sometimes be used in the UK where an American would use the subjunctive. There are also some fixed phrases that use the subjunctive.

BLOGG | Patricia Diaz En liten heads-up för långt men viktigt inlägg (med många länkar)! När jag lyssnade på avnittet ”Allt är inte Facebook” ur podden ”Jakten på likes” med Isa Galvan och Linnea Holst slog det mig hur viktigt det ändå är att ha (tänkte först skriva ”lite” men tog bort det sen) koll på vad barn och ungdomar gör på nätet. Podden riktar sig till föräldrar (alla vuxna?) som vill lära sig allt om sociala medier. I podden diskuteras de vanligaste sociala plattformarna där barn och unga möts idag: Snapchat, Ask, Kik, Instagram, med flera. Utöver sociala plattformar tar podden upp ämnen som nätjuridik, bekräftelse, källkritik och näthat. Nedan kommer några rader om några av de sociala medier som tas upp i podden, plus ett par till. Snapchat – grundat av Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy och Reggie Brown och lanserades 2011. Snapchat växer så det knakar och är verkligen de ungas sociala medium. Instagram – fortfarande himla poppis även bland de yngre. Wattpad – ”Har du läst min bok?”

Phrasal Verbs Menu Some information and general comments about the site and who should use it A fair number of the example sentences on the site are in a business context. I am considering a Phrasal and Prepositional verbs for business section, but it might be more practical just to create another site for that purpose. I'll let you know how that progresses. I should point out (one of the verbs you'll find inside) that this site is only really suitable for upper intermediate and advanced students. The site name refers only to phrasal verbs but, there is, of course, another group known as prepositional verbs.
