Ich möchte or Ich mochte
in the sentance "Ich möchte eins von denen, bitte." why "mochte" us with an ulmant ?
It means: "I would like one of those, please," which is polite. Without the umlaut you have "I liked one of those please," which is not idiomatic and does not make a whole lot of sense.
ain't "mochte" and "möchte" the same verb? as far as I know the past form of "mochte"
