Given the 2 examples below:
I wish you were here now
If he were in the situation that you've been 2 weeks ago, we wouldn't have bothered about it now
The word 'were' is used as a subjunctive and my question is: To me, because of the signaling words
2 weeks ago, the first example is a thinking and a usage of the word 'were' in the present, though a hypothetical situation and the second example shows 'were' for a past thinking and again a hypothetical situation. Is it so? I also found the article on Wikipedia (English subjunctive - were) but I didn't find the section entitled 'Use of the past subjunctive' to be clarifying. Despite having the name of
PAST SUBJUNCTIVE , the first example to me is very present. So to summarize and ask it in a more comprised way:
What are the tenses of the were subjunctive? Does a native speaker think on the tense of this verb 'were' when used as a subjunctive?
