I'm really hoping that someone can help me.
In these sentences what does would actually mean? Usually we can use would to talk about past habit, suggestions, advice, conditionals etc.
1. He would get upset about that! (= I'm not surprised. Knowing him - this is a typical thing that he'd do)
2 A: She at all of biscuits and didn't leave any for anyone else.
B: Well, she would! (= I'm not surprised. Knowing her this is a typical thing that she'd do)
- What can I call this form of would if I'd like to read more about it? Why do we use 'would' here? How might it be described in a grammatical way?
