Conditional

The conditional tense of the verb is generally translated as either "I would play". To form this form of the verb, take the relevant form of Konjunktiv II of werden and the infinitive.

ichwürdespielen / fahren
duwürdest
erwürde
wirwürden
ihrwürdet
siewürden

Notes:

  • The conditional tense is often used with a non-conditional meaning as a simple replacement for the Konjunktiv in reported speech and after a few constructions. Conversely, it is common for modal verbs, sein and haben (and uncommon, but possible, for other verbs) to use Konjunktiv II instead of the more clumsy conditional tense.
  • The infinitive is always sent as far towards the end of the clause as possible (see word order).
