I have had hard time remembering the list of subjunctive verbs forms, To-verb forms and verb forms that may be OK with both of these. Did anyone of you any easy tricks to remember these lists?

Subjunctive required:
o Demand
o Dictate
o Insist
o Mandate
o Propose
o Recommend
o Request
o Stipulate
o Suggest

• To Verb required
o Advice
o Allow
o Forbid
o Persuade
o Want

• Either OK
o Ask
o Beg
o Desire
o Intend
o Order
o Prefer
o Require
o Urge

I used to think of the set of words that are subjunctive as "boss-words", i.e. something my boss (or the government) would arrogantly say at work. That seemed to work in most cases for me.

My shortcut is - ( if you are a cricket fan)
For both -

ABD ru IPO ( abd refers to AbD from South Africa and IPO is the share market term)


For subjunctive-

DDIMPRRSS ( remember the pneumonics like dd ( like you are saying something to didi/sister ) - - > dd i am impressed.


Consider kudos if that helped.
