Parole simili a "Mou" e le sue differenze

Q: Qual è la differenza tra I suggest we sign an MOU, which "will" serve (as) a blueprint for the actual contract. e I suggest we sign an MOU, which "would" serve (as) a blueprint for the actual contract. ?
A: @auroratwins012 Sure! I’m happy to help.

Hmm, first of all, I feel like both sentences aren’t natural. If you remove the word “about”, it would sound much more natural.

1) What if we offered you a contract for another year?
2) What if we offer you a contract for another year?

In this case, I think both are perfectly natural and grammatically correct. But in my opinion, there is a slight nuance between them. 2) sounds more likely/probable that they would really offer you a contract, and 1) sounds slightly less likely.

Asking “What if” is almost like making a conditional statement. 1) would be second conditional, whereas 2) is first conditional. Think of it like this:
1) is like saying “If we offered you a contract for another year, then what?”
2) is like saying “If we offer you a contract for another year, then what?”


Changing the sentence to “How about” changes the meaning. “How about” sounds like they are making a suggestion rather than asking a hypothetical question.
