Subjunctive with Emotion Verbs As you already know, we use the subjunctive after verbs indicating suggestions, desire, or demands. The subjunctive is also used after verbs and impersonal phrases indicating emotion, such as:
Subjunctive with Emotion Verbs Ojalá que (I hope that…) Temo que (I fear that…) Tengo miedo de que (I am afraid that…) Me alegro de que (I am happy that…) Me molesta que (It bothers me that…) Me sorprende que (It surprises me that…) Siento que (I feel that…) Es triste que (It´s sad that…) Es bueno que (It´s good that…)
The Subjunctive with Emotion Verbs Note that the subjunctive sentences have two parts, each with a different subject, connected by the word que:
2 Clauses Nosotros tememos que nuestros amigos desconfien de nuestras palabras. Independent clause (stands on its own) Subject > Verb Separated by the word que Dependent clause (cant stand on its own) Begins with the word que. Indicative Verb Subjunctive Verb
