    would可以用在表示[單純的未來],與過去無關。

    意思是:將[會]

    He would be absent when we are most busy!

    =我們最忙的時候,他總是不在。(習以為常地做...)

    "Stop teasing me or I'll tell mama."=不要作弄我,不然我要告訴媽媽。

    "You would!" =我知道你會的。

    The door would not open.

    =那扇門怎麼也打不開。

    p.1607 <新世紀英漢辭典>

    You say that someone "would" do something when it is typical of them and you are critical of it.

    would is used to form conditional statements.

    eg:-would be impolite if shorter skirt worn.

    eg:-would have been impolite if shorter skirt had been worn.
