PLAYLIST FOR “MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO THE SUBJUNCTIVE MOOD” (5.23.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

24 May

In my obsessive effort to defend correct grammar, I focussed this week on my favorite verb mood, the subjunctive mood; my favorite because it often expresses wishes – even though they’re wishes which haven’t or can’t come true. It’s all a part of my “No listener left behind” effort. Don’t try to thank me. Just doing my job. (Ok, you can try to thank me.)
