would rather .. Would that動詞在哪

這二個型困擾我很久,

想不通所以來請教:

1. I would rather that he were here.

2. Would that he were here.

請問:

一、這2句的主要子句動詞在哪?

還是他們是由什麼句型演化而來?

二、這種句型是什麼意思?

請針對問題回答即可,

如果可以最好引用比較可靠的參考資料

並且附註您引用的資料來源,

謝謝!

    1. I would rather that he were here.

    would rather that = wish (with a preference) 寧願

    隱含另一不選的,譬如:

    I would rather that he were here than that she were here.

    我寧願他來(而不是她來)

    這裡 would rather that 是表是希望,借用wish相關的假設語氣,後面使用過去式。

    參考(英文說明):

    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=201005...

    2. Would that he were here. 但願他在這裏 (事實是他不在)

    would that = I wish 使用標準的假設語氣

    參考would定義:

    would (wʊd, ( unstressed ) wəd) 4. I wish: would that he were here

    (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/would)

    至於動詞呢,這是特殊用法,只能把 would 代換成 I wish 去解釋。
