Salviamo il congiuntivo (Save the subjunctive)

Students of Italian (including Italians, including me) always battle with the subjunctive – a form of the verb used afted other verbs of doubt, hope etc. Over recent year Italian young people have tended to stop using it. Good news for foreigners trying to master the language and bad news for Italians wanted to maintain the language.

So in response a “Committee for Saving the Subjunctive” was set up a few years ago to attempt to turn back the tide. However, it looks as if the battle might be lost as the last comment on the blog was in January 2008.
