Should 2

We can use 'should' after 'reporting verbs' such as
demand insist propose recommend suggest

  • He demanded that we should pay for the repair.
  • She insisted that she should pay for the meal.
  • I have proposed that he should take charge of the organization.
  • The committee recommends that Jane should be appointed.
  • We have suggested that Michael should be given a reward for his hard work.

it is also possible to say exactly the same thing by omitting the
'should' and just using the infinitive form without 'to' . Some people
call this the 'subjunctive' form.

  • He demanded that we pay for the repair.
  • She insisted that she pay for the meal.
  • I have proposed that he take charge of the organization.
  • The committee recommends that Jane be appointed.
  • We have suggested that Michael be given a reward for his hard work.

We can use 'should' after various adjectives. Typical examples are :
funny interesting natural odd strange surprised surprising typical

  • It's funny that you should say that. I was thinking exactly the same thing.
  • It's interesting that they should offer him the job. Not an obvious choice.
  • It's natural that you should be anxious. Nobody likes speaking in public.
  • Isn't it odd that he should be going to the same tiny hotel? What a coincidence.
  • It's strange that you should think so. Nobody else does.

We can use 'should' in 'if clauses' when we believe that the possibility of something happening is small.

  • If you should happen to see him before I do, can you tell him that I want to speak to him urgently?
  • If there should be a problem, just give me a call and I'll sort it out.
  • If anyone should ask where I am, say I'm in a meeting.

We use 'should' in various fixed expressions.
To show strong agreement

  • They're paying you compensation? I should think so.

To express pleasure when you receive a gift

  • What a fantastic present. You really shouldn't have.

To emphasize a visible emotion

  • You should have seen the look on her face when she found out that she had got the promotion.
