Subjunctive-With Feelings


The subjunctive is not a tense, it is a mood. The subjunctive is brought on by uncertainty, potentiality, prediction, and/or, feelings of want, wish, or desire.

In this we will focus on feelings; In spanish it would be considered a condition. Things like being happy or scared.





There are three different parts of a subjunctive sentence...
1. Two different subjects
2. A Relative pronoun (usually QUE, but also como, or quien)
3. One UWEIRO verb and one subjunctive verb
Uncertainty
Want, Wishes, desires
Emotions <----we are focusing on this one
Impersonal observations (it's important that... it's good that...)
Recommendations
Doubt, Disbelief, Denial
Ojalá
To conjugate the subjunctive verb...
1. Take the yo form of the present tense
2. Drop the o ending
3. Add the opposite ending in the conjugated form
-ar verbs: e, es, e, emos, eís, en -------------Ex: hablar: hable, hables, hable, hablemos, hableís, hablen
-er/-ir verbs a, as, a, amos, aís, an ----------Ex: comer: coma, comas, coma, comamos, comaís, coman

Since we are focusing on emotions, we can use words like; happy, scared, sad, excited, surprised, nervous, anger/angry, fear, confused, etc.


I am excited that you are here! --------> ¡Estoy emocionada de que estes aquí!
