Say, Alibaba was trapped in a cave and it was impossible for him to get out of the cave.

Is it correct for Alibaba to say these at that moment?:

-"I wish to get out of here"

or

-"I wish that I could get out of here"

or

-"I wish for myself to get out of here"

or

-"I wish for getting out of here"

Is Alibaba talking to a genie?

In fact, is Alibaba talking to anyone at all?? If he is alone in a cave he probably just doesn't talk. Or if he does begin to talk to himself, he would say "اريد ان اخرج"

If he doesn't have a Genie, he would be more likely to say "I hope to get out" or "I want to get out". Using "wish" is possible, in the form "I wish I could get out of here" but less likely.

    I think he would say to himself "I wish I could get out of here". If the genie offered him a wish (three wishes?) he would say "I wish to get out of here." Apr 12 at 8:15
