About this deal

Normally a remote conditional and an open conditional are fairly far apart in meaning, but in this case they are making the same request and differ only in nuance. If you are in Australia or New Zealand (DVD Region 4), note that almost all DVDs distributed in the UK by the BBC and 2entertain are encoded for both Region 2 and Region 4. All that said, you certainly will come across people using the full present-tense "would you mind if I smoke".

My answer is that the American English alphabet doesn’t correspond one-to-one with the letters of the alphabet.This audiobook is the result of a long series of meetings with Simon McKay who asked many questions and received many answers. I ought to add the caveat that, as in most of these phrases, what is appropriate in some circumstances is less so in others.

remains valid too though, and also interrogative and conditional, but making it clear from the beginning that one is asking a question is often an advantage. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Ainsi, nous considérons les apprentissages que les bancs publics nous permettent de faire pour mieux comprendre comment les pratiques liées à la santé sont influencées par ce qui peut être vu en y étant assis ou en observant ceux qui y sont assis. Highlighting her work in radio, TV and film, it also looks at her more serious roles on the stage, such as Hedda Gabler and Colette.I loaded my pickup truck with my aluminum ladder, a bucket of black paint, and an old paintbrush I had out back in my shed. What can you about Fenella Fielding, not only the sultry tannoy voice for the Prisoner, but a long list of film and theatre credits. Avoiding the present tense places more "distance" between the speaker and whatever he's talking about, which is a common feature of "deferential" statements/requests. She was wearing a pink waitress uniform with a white apron, and she even had a little white hat poking up out of her poufy red hair. I would suggest that correct question to pose, in this instance, would be: "Would you mind if I were to smoke here?

He told me that I couldn’t be out there that late, and I said no problem, because I was just leaving. I busted the front window with the metal gas container, poured gasoline around the entrance, lit the rags, and threw the rags and gas containers inside through the broken window. Life is long and hard and mean and exhausting and I’ll need a long peaceful rest when I reach the finish line. However, it seems that some will criticise "smoke" in such a sentence so if you want to have the least contentious answer it is certainly "would you mind if I smoked? I think if you use 'would' you have to use the unreal past in the 'if clause', otherwise you would have to say: Do you mind if I smoke?

I went to Aunt Nora’s house every day after school and she taught me reading, writing, and arithmetic. Neither Jenny nor the numb nuts sign maker happened to notice that the apostrophe was missing between the Y and S. it's worth the listen alone for the bits about her Carry On movies, but what stands out is someone far deeper and who has lived and met many famous people. If it's a conditional, then how come it's not as idiomatic to say "If I smoked here, would you mind? As you say it seems to be a conditional, and I think in this case it does work as a conditional sentence.

But don’t worry, I won’t do it again, so your mouth will need to remain shut like a rat trap until the day the undertaker buries you deep in the earth and gives the earthworms the green light to have themselves a nice little lawyer buffet. I wonder if there is some subtle nuance about the choice of present or past - the past being more theoretical and the present being used when you are literally about to do something? In this commentary, we illustrate how exploring the meanings and uses of everyday, seemingly mundane, public objects can advance our understanding of health-related practices and the social norms that shape them. Much of the meaning and colour of such questions depends on the tone of voice and the manner of the speaker.Glorious, gossipy reminiscences of a vanished showbiz world delivered in a breathless, intimate prose style that mirrors Fenella's familiar, dulcet, dark-brown tones. I was pleased to discover there is so much more to her than THAT red dress, and a tedious journey was made much more pleasurable by being in her company. If there's an audio version of this, narrated by Fenella herself, of course, then I would much prefer that and it would get 5 stars from me.
