How do I use the verb " wish " correctly? When do I use with+would and when do I use wish+past simple? Is there any rule? I hope you can also give me a few examples. Thanks in advance.
wish + would is a sort of "future simple" - I wish you would wash the dishes tonight wish + past simple is more "future continuous" - I wish you did the dishes more often
When the future tense is not clear, it's often treated as interchangeable, e.g., I wish I were prettier & I wish I was prettier are both acceptable.
