Usage of the Subjunctive form [#permalink] New post 01 Jul 2004, 08:14
Can anyone briefly explain when and how to use the subjunctive form?

I have read it up on the American Heritage site, but am really not clear on the usage.

For eg:

1) Whether he be opposed to the plan or not, we must seek his opinion.
2) Even though he be opposed to the plan, we must try to implement it.
3) They are rewriting the proposal so that it not contradict new zoning laws.

I could not understand why be is required. Is there a diffference in meaning if I use "is" instead?

Any help shall be cherished ;-)
