I've been going through a book called The Handbook of Japanese Verbs and it's great for someone who is self teaching like myself. When it comes to the verb conjugations, firstly I came across (we'll use 行く for example) the conditional (if) version which is 行けば (ikeba) which I've memorized well. Next an alternative was introduced which is 行たら (ittara) and it says "Tara: conditional"
I'd like to know are these two alternatives interchangeable? Or is one used more than the other to indicate 'if' or maybe they have different meanings? I'd just like to clarify because I don't have anyone I can directly ask.
Thanks. :geek:
