I'm a non-native speaker. In my mother tongue, we just have one verb to express "willing", so sometimes it's a puzzle to us Persians: What are the differences among "wanted" and "would want" and "would"?
For example, what are the differences among these sentences:
- You wanted to do it.
- You would want to do it. (I guess it's better to add some words at first of this sentence like "maybe")
- You would do it.
There is no problem to me about "want" and "would". my main problem is the difference between these two verb.
What do I know about "Wanted" and "would"?
To me "wanted" and "would" is completely like together and it expresses a willingness in past that is failed.
