Hypothetical Constructions: Reality

Few lessons back, we went over the subjunctive-conditional if-clause combination. Over the next few lessons, we will revisit this type of hypothetical construction and explore its relationship with various tenses and moods. In this episode, however, we will explain how and when to use the hypothetical construction focused on reality and actuality. In other words, an if-clause can also be used to express the realistic (although hypothetical) outcome of a situation:

Se mangio della cioccolata ogni giorno, mi vengono i brufoli.
If I eat chocolate every day, I will get pimples.
