G. (1) If you had listened to me, you wouldn’t have made mistakes (‘but you didn’t listen to me’). g. (2) If you listened to me, you wouldn’t make mistakes. (‘but I don’t suppose you will listen to me’)1 With regard to present terminology, (1) is usually considered to be counterfactual, and (2) would be Hypothetical. However, it could be noted also in (2) that the conditional may also be suffixed with ‘… but you don’t listen to me’ (habitually), suggesting again an implied rejection of the conditional premise, and a time reference which is neither in the future nor in the past, but in the habitual present.
But (17) still allows for the inference from if p to if ~p to hold: (17) If she had got enough votes, she would have become president. If she hadn’t got enough votes, she wouldn’t have become president. But I don’t know whether she got enough votes — I wasn’t around at the time! Usually there is an implicature (or presupposition, according to Horn, 2000) of falsity backing the utterance of counterfactual conditionals, which would make the two premises in (17) appear contradictory. 6 In such cases it may be expressed as a unique condition: (18) Only if she had got enough votes, would she have become president.
Fleischman 1989: 8) Both of these examples use the marking for past to assert metaphorical social distance from the addressee. In a later work (1995), she notes that the use of the progressive in (4b) is more typical of such requests than the use of a simple verb form, and that there is a general preference in Romance languages for the imperfective aspect to express such utterances. The reason for this is that the use of the imperfective aspect does not predict the completion of the event being referred to, and implies to the addressee the continuation of the past state, giving the addressee the possibility of responding (Fleischman 1995: 52).
