The subjunctive is used rarely. One finds vestiges of it in a few hypothetical expressions (using 'if + to be') and in a few set phrases.
> In constructions using 'if + to be', one should use 'were' (instead of 'was') with the first and third persons singular ('I' and 'he,' 'she,' or 'it'). (In spoken English, and in much informal writing, 'was' will still be used.)
If I were Muriel, I'd never go back there.
> Set phrases and proverbs:
Match the sentences.
