expression about unreal situation without any time marker (second conditional)

1) if you could see him would you say him?


  • How to convert foregoing second conditional sentence into third one?

if you had could see him yesterday, would have you said him?


If you could have seen him yesterday, would have you said him?


Your starting sentence is incorrect. I'm going to assume you mean:

If you could see him what would you say to him?

To shift:

If you could have seen him (yesterday), what would you have said to him?

Only the verbs change.

  • Sorry, I didn't mean 'tomorrow', supposedly had written by mistake and deleted it already. Thank you for your concern

    @Max Ok, edited. It really doesn't make much difference.
