|Assunto:||Should you have...|
Could you please tell me the rule for using should in questions like this: 'Should you have any problems, feel free to contact me.' What does it mean? And how does it differ from: 'If you have any questions, please contact me?'
These two sentences are very similar in meaning. But 'Should you have...' or 'If you should have...' may be used in preference to 'If you have...' if we want to suggest a slight possibility of something happening or when we are making suggestions or giving advice. Compare:
'If you have any free time, make sure you visit the old town.' (It's possible, or even likely, that you may have some free time.)
In the day-to-day communication there´s not much trouble wether using one or other, I think. PP.
