About The Conditional Tense
After using the last three tenses; you'll be happy to know the conditional tense is super easy in Ukrainian! You only have to remember 3 things!
- Put it in the Past Tense
- If it ends in -в put the word би after it
- If it ends in -ла or -ло put the word б after it
- Він мав би - He would have
- Вона мала б - She would have
- Воно мало б - It would have
- Ми мали б - We would have
so you can't say мала би or мали би?
Well, technically yes. But it's not very natural...
so б and би are not really interchangeable in Ukrainian (like they are in Russian)?
btw you have a typo in Воно мала б
No, not really. Remember Ukrainians like their language to flow that's why to euphony rule is there :)
Thanks again :) I fixed it now
what if you use the reverse word order, can you say вона би мала?
