I'm confused over the usage of conditional forms, AKA where to use them correctly, when not to use them and the differences.
Below are the forms I have learnt and my interpretation of how to use them.(sorry the computer I'm on has no Japanese keyboard)
-Tara = considered the 'safest option' in terms of conditionals, can be used in hypothetical and physical situations.(Are there any situations where tara wouldn't work?)
-ba = used for only hypothetical situations (which I don't fully understand since if it is conditional, wouldn't all the situations be hypothetical since they haven't happened?)
-Nara = contextual situations (what constitutes a contextual sentence?) 'If this is the case then...'
-baai = used with nouns and verbs, 'In the case of... then...' (this seems pretty interchangeable with nara, is this correct?
-to = only used if something will naturally happen, e.g. when it's winter it will become cold. (but surely if it naturally occurs to stops being conditional right? like... it will always become cold during winter so why not just say, It's winter it will be/become cold.)
Sorry for the long winded question but I know how to conjugate these forms but I have no idea when to use them correctly.
