Is the subjunctive of "ir" used a lot more than others?
I seem to hear "vaya", "vayamos" and other present subjunctive versions of "ir" used a lot more than for other verbs. Is that my imagination, or is there some reason that it gets used a lot?
------- Attempt at Spanish, please correct:
Creo que oigo "vaya", "vayamos" y otros versiónes de el subjuntivo presento de "ir" usado mas que con otra verbos. ¿Está de mi imaginación o existe algun otro razon para que ese es usado tan mucho?
It could be because there exists many commonly used periphrases using ir.
ir+ a+verb infinitive
But neither of this is a "trigger" for using the subjunctive mood, so I don't know why you would hear the subjunctive of the verb used any more than with any other verb. It must just be because ir is such a commonly used verb.
I would guess that because of its use as a helper verb, the subjunctive of haber is most common, but that is just a guess.
