    "If a star was born for every thought about your smile, the universe would have been filled with light long ago."

    English subjunctive mood is hell. I'm not sure of anything right now.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Re: Sentence to translate

    Past subjunctive of 'to be' is 'were'. But then again, even some native speakers don't know that.
    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."

    Oh yeah!

    На стене по дороге от нашего дома к станции долго висел огромный рекламный плакат: "I WISH I WAS IN EGYPT". <...> Просто, похоже, язык меняется быстрее, чем нам это нравится.
    Цитата взята отсюда:
    Code:
    http://www.trworkshop.net/forum/viewtopic.php?p=510279#p510279
    Там же упоминается, что носители говорят "I wish we was there". Так что, может, когда-нибудь вместо were во всех лицах будет was. )))
