I was doing some reviewing of the subjunctive mood when I stumbled on this:
In the that-clause, use a past tense form of the verb even if your sentence has a present or future meaning:
I wish he spoke French.
I wish she was coming with me to Paris.
I wish you hadn’t said that.
My question is, why would the second example allow a "was" instead of a "were", being this a subjunctive mood example? Is it because the past continuous requires the auxiliary verb to be conjugated according to the subject?
