  4. Grammar rules say that hadn't is used for unreal past conditions, but why can't we use simple past negation instead of past perfect? If I hadn't come to the meeting, it wouldn't have happened.

  6. if it hadn't been for (someone or something) If someone or something hadn't helped, intervened, or affected the situation in some way. The phrase is always followed by an explanation of how things would have turned out differently without someone or something. If it hadn't been for those quick-thinking bystanders, I wouldn't be alive today.
  7. I would not be here if I hadn't been there And I wouldn't been there if I hadn't just turned On Wednesday the third in the late afternoon Got to talking with George who works out in the back And only because he was getting off early To go see a man at a Baker Street bookstore With a rare first edition of steamboats and cotton10/10(1).
