Dengan bantuan Peter, Harry sedang berusaha menelpon koneksi bisnisnya.

Harry : Now what do I do?

Peter : You lift the receiver and dial. Then when you hear the pips — the pay tone — you insert the money.

Harry : I see. Let me try. (Ia memutar angka). I hope the man’s there. He should be. My friend said he would certainly be in London now. Oh, there’s the pay tone.

Peter : Insert the coin.

Harry : It won’t got in.

Peter : You’re trying to get into the wrong slot.

Harry : Oh dear! (Ia memasukkan uangnya ke lubang yang benar). That’s better. But now the line’s gone dead.

Peter : The probably got tired and rang off.

Harry : It’s so confusing. Would you do it, Peter?

Peter : I think you should try again yourself, then you’ll learn.

Harry : Well —

Peter : Try once more. I said I would help you and I will, but —

Harry : Yes, all right. I should learn how to do it. I remember my grandmother was so nervous. She would never use a telephone; she was frightened of it. I don’t want to think I feel the same about English telephones. Ah. I’m through! Hallo! Hallo! I’d like to speak to Mr. MacAndrew—

Peter : Well done!

Harry : He’s there. The girl told me to hold on a minute. Oh what’s happened? There’s that purring noise. We seem to be cut off again.

Peter : Yes, Father, of course you are! You put your arm down on the receiver rest. I’ll get through for you. Like most successful business man, Father, you’re helpless without secretary.


Di sini kita akan membahas hal yang bertalian dengan conditional clauses (anak kalimat pengandaian): kapan Anda seharusnya memakai should dan kapan memakai would. (Perhatikan bahwa kedua kata itu kerap kali disingkat dalam percakapan menjadi: I’d come; he’d go dan sebagainya).

Should dan would untuk orang pertama

Tata bahasa kuno menerangkan bahwa should harus selalu dipakai untuk orang pertama dalam keadaan tertentu. Sebenarnya, dalam bahasa Inggris modern should dan would keduanya dipakai dengan I dan we.

Should yang berarti seharusnya

Kesulitan sesungguhnya dalam pemilihan should dan would terletap pada kenyataan bahwa should juga berarti ‘seharusnya.’

  • We should work hard, but I’m so tired.
  • I should give him a present, but I’m broke.

Oleh sebab itu dalam memilih antara should dan would dalam anak kalimat pengandaian, yang terpenting adalah menghindari keragu-raguan. Perhatikan kalimat berikut ini: I should help you but I can’t.

Jika anda ingin menghindari pengertian keharusan, maka anda harus mengatakan: I would help you but I can’t.

Perhatikan juga:

  • We should help you but we don’t know hot to. (Mungkin kami seharusnya menolong mu).
  • I should give you the money but I haven’t any. (Mungkin kami seharusnya memberikan uang itu padamu).

Dalam banyak hal tidak tercakup pengertian should yang berarti seharusnya, dan baik should maupun would boleh di pakai. I should invite you if I had enough food. Atau I would invite you if I had enough food.

Would: hasrat atau kemauan

Akan tetapi disini timbul hal lain yang penting: pemakaian would bisa menyatakan hasrat atau kemauan dari pihak pembicara. Jadi kalimat di atas akan lebih sopan bila diubah menjadi: I would invite you; maksudnya, saya juga akan suka melakukan itu.


Sebagai petunjuk mengenai pemakaian should dan would untuk orang pertama, jika anda ingin menujukkan keharusan, pakailah should; jika tidak, atau jika anda ingin menyatakan hasrat atau kemauan dari pihak pembicara, pakailah would.

Would dan should untuk orang kedua dan ketiga

Untuk orang kedua dan ketiga should biasanya hanya dipakai dalam arti seharusnya:

  • You should try again.
  • He would have come if you had invited him.
  • They should have told us they were going.
  • You would be pleasanter if you had better manners.
  • You should press the marked “A”.
  • I hope the man’s there. He should be.

Kalimat tidak langsung

Pada umumnya shall menjadi should dalam kalimat tidak langsung dan will menjadi would:

Langsung : He said, “I will come.” Tidak langsung : He said that he would come.
Langsung : I insisted, “They shall finish at once.” Tidak langsung : I insisted that they should finish at once.

Tetapi disini kita juga harus berhati-hati dan menghindari keragu-raguan yang disebabkan oleh kenyataan bahwa should juga berarti ‘seharusnya’.

Langsung : He said “I shall come.” Tidak langsung : He said that he should come.

Ini bisa berarti He said that he ought to come. Maka dari itu lebih baik mengatakan, He said that he would come.

Pemakaian lain dari would

  1. Would bisa dipakai untuk menunjukkan kebiasaan yang dilakukan terus menerus di waktu lampau: She would never use a telephone. He would talk for hours.
  2. Would juga biasa dipakai untuk mengajukan pertanyaan atau permintaan, biasanya dalam kalimat-kalimat positif: Would you do it? Would you carry suitcase for a moment?

Pemakaian lain dari should

Should juga dipakai untuk menekankan keragu-raguan setelah if pada kalimat-kalimat pengandaian pada waktu sekarang: If he comes. (Ia mungkin datang). If he should come. (Ia mungkin datang, tapi rasanya tidak datang).


  • To be frightened of something.


to ring I ring I rang I have rung
to cut I cut I cut I have cut
to hold I hold I held I have held

  18. The shopkeeper …. sell these umbrellas without difficulty as they are so cheap.

  1. Telephone the doctor.
  2. She wants to see the manager.
