  • I wanted to cite what if I + what, past tense or present tense?, because that title more exactly matches the question as posed here. But it's got no upvotes or accepted answer, so I can't. It's all the same thing though - If I write / wrote / were to write / was to write this using any of those formats, what difference would it make? – FumbleFingers Jun 30 at 17:11
  • In English the subjunctive is more often conjugated in the past tense -- but not exclusively. Both are possible. – Andrew Jun 30 at 17:16
  • @FumbleFingers Which of the answers to the duplicate question do you think is best, or even correct? All of them seem to be somewhat off-target. – Andrew Jun 30 at 17:18
  • @Andrew: I wasn't particularly thinking about the answers there - just that the framing of the question (suppose + Present / Past) seemed closer than asking about the was / were usages (which both look like "Past" anyway). – FumbleFingers Jun 30 at 17:34
