I'm having a hard time knowing whether it needs to be could, should, or would. It is certainly not always clear from context :(.
I am as well... Does anyone have tips for knowing which? Or is it supposed to always be contextual?
Why not Mi provus? Why is provi a in the infinitive this appears to contradict the tips where both verbs should be conditional?
it is different. you use -us for both verbs when the sentence is like "if I was to ... I would" where the "was" and "would" both have -us.
I guess it's only when there is an "if"
"Can" or "could" is a helping verb and the following verb that it is helping is in infinitive form in Esperanto and in "bare infinitive form" without the "to" in English. "I could try.", not "I could and I try" which would each then be in conditional form.
