Identification and use of adverbial clause of condition ‘IF’
Adverb clauses of condition:
Adverb clauses of condition are introduced by the subordinating conjunctions if, whether, provided that, so long as and unless.
- If I like it, I will buy it.
- If you heat ice, it melts.
- If it rains, we will stay at home.
- You may come if you want to.
You may have noticed that the adverb clause of condition gives the circumstances under which the action in the main clause will take place.
Omission of if
Sometimes the conjunction if is omitted.
- Were the child mine, I would have taken it to a doctor. (= If the child were mine, I would have taken it to a doctor.)
- Should you meet my brother, tell him that I have gone to the railway station. (= If you meet my brother, tell him that I have gone to the railway station.)
