WISH / IF ONLY CLAUSES Wish and if only can be used with would and past tenses. These structures express regrets, and wishes for unlikely or impossible things. If only is more emphatic. 1. Past tenses are used to talk about the present. I wish I was better looking I wish I spoke French Don’t you wish you could fly? If only I knew more people! Were can be used instead of was, especially in a formal style. He wishes he were better looking. 2. We use a past perfect tense to express regrets about the past I wish you hadn’t said that. Now she wishes she had gone to university. If only she hadn’t told the police, everything would be all right. 3. We use would or could... 1. to talk about future things which aren’t very probable. I wish / If only I could go to the party. 2. to talk about future things that we would like people (not) to do. The subject of wish and the main verb is different. So here we only use would. This often expresses dissatisfaction or annoyance: It can sound critical. I wish you would go home. If only the postman would come! We can use this structure to talk about things as well as people. I wish this damned car would start. If only it would stop raining!
