What is a si clause?
The word si means if in English. Si clauses, also known as conditionals or conditional sentences, are used to express what could happen if some condition is met. Si clauses indicate possibilities which may or may not actually happen. They refer to the present, past, and future.
Conditional sentences have two parts: the condition, or si clause, and the result clause which indicates what will happen if the condition of the si clause is met. The tense of the result clause depends on the tense of the si clause. In other words, the tense of the two clauses follow a pattern that cannot be modified.
