    no matter + why/what/who/which/when/where/how ...

    這子句如果是在給一個現在或將來有可能發生或如此情況的條件,其動詞會用直說語氣的現在簡單式,如:

    No matter what he says, don't go.

    You'll never succed, no matter how hard you (may) try.

    以上例句取自<新世紀英漢辭典>p.860

    但如果所談的是過去的狀況或條件時,會用過去簡單式,如:

    No matter how often they were urged, they could not bring themselves to join in.

    Jenkins would reward all investors, no matter when they made their investiment.

    以上兩例句取自p.956 Collins Cobuild English Dictionary for Advanced Learners

    時態會決定語意。
