THE CONDITIONAL



The conditional is used first of all to express a condition under which an action described by the sentence's verb that stands in the indicative could be realised, for example:



Ja njeby měł wjele pjenjezy, hdyž by był wučer.

I wouldn't have a lot of money if I were a teacher.



The conditional is also used in other functions, for instance it may express a purpose of an action, for instance:



Póńdu do Budyšina zo bych kupił całtu.

I will go to Budyšin to buy a bun.



The conditional is made out of the auxiliary conditional form of the być je verb followed by the L-participle.
