comment What to use for subjunctive imperfect while speaking?
Also, is it really common practice to avoid constructions with subjunctive in general?

comment When to use possessive vs article, e.g. “mettre le réveil” vs “mettre mon réveil” ?
My god, that would actually make sense and be perfectly usable in practice as a rule. Could it be that straightforward?

It does help a bit! Just trying to determine whether it's the same as in English, where you can really use either and both sound normal. Welcome to French.SE by the way! I'm glad we are getting new users recently. It was just like 10 of us for so long.

Really? Do a large percentage of native French speakers not have the imparfair du subjonctif conjugation patterns memorized? Or you just mean kids balk at it when they get to that point in school.

While this isn't the answer I'm looking for, it is a valid approach to getting by with a second language, and something we all do. That being said, I encourage you to memorize the subjunctive conjugation...it's actually very easy. If you memorize the regular pattern and then the irregular roots of the 10 most common or so (faire -> fass-, devoir -> doiv-, pouvoir - > puiss-, aller -> aill-, avoir -> ai/ay, etre -> soi/soy, vouloir -> veuill-, savoir -> sach-), then that takes care of like 90% of cases.
