    Another Question "were" with "I"

    When I can use "I"with "were"

    If the rule says You is used always with was were.

     

    You can use I with the word were when you are speaking in the subjunctive mood. The subjunctive mood is not used as often as the indicative mood.

     

    Some examples- I wish I were in California. Would I were there now!  - Sounds a bit stuffy doesn't it? Most Americans do not talk like this.

    The most common way that I hear it used is in a sentence like this- If I were you, I'd accept the offer.
