3 Outline Materi Third conditional Mixed conditional
4 Third Conditional If + past perfect tense, + would have + past participle If you had left me, I would have died of a broken heart. Would have + past participle (no comma) + if + past perfect tense I would have died of a broken heart if you had left me.
5 Third Conditional We use the third conditional to talk about past events which cannot be changed, so we know that the condition is impossible and its consequence is imaginary: If you’d (had) left me, I’d (would) have died of a broken heart. (but you didn’t leave me, so I was all right) If you’d (had) been in love, nothing else would have mattered. (but the speaker knows you were not in love at that time, so other things were important to you)
6 Third Conditional Other modal verbs like might and could are sometimes used instead of would in second and third conditional sentences: I might love you if you bought me a diamond ring. I could have loved you forever if you’d (had) bought me a diamond ring.
7 Mixed Conditionals Mixed conditionals We sometimes meet sentences which contain a mixture of second and third conditionals because of their particular context: If my boyfriend gave me diamonds like that, I’d have married him by now. (= my boyfriend does not give me diamonds like that so I haven’t married him)
8 Mixed Conditionals If the weather had been fine last week, there would be roses in my garden. (=the weather was bad last week so there are no roses in my garden now) Lesley wouldn’t have missed the bus if she were better organised. (=Lesley missed the bus because she is a badly organised person)
