Usual starter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subjunctive

An executive summary from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subjunctive

	“The past subjunctive is identical with the past tense except in the
	case of the verb be, which uses were for all persons: If I were rich
	…, If he were rich …, If they were rich….”
