Given that the text is based on a series of audio recordings where the actress talked about anything that came into her head, it’s reasonable to expect some of her stories to come out sounding like the transcript of an impromptu interview, but it’s a bit irksome that some basic chronology wasn’t used, as it would have given the book a more balanced feel. Département de médecine sociale et préventive, École de santé publique de l'Université de Montréal, Montréal, Québec, Canada.

is the astonishing and often hilarious life story of a national treasure, told for the first time in a special edition hardback book to be published on the eve of actress Fenella Fielding's 90th birthday this November. Even if ordinarily I wouldn't mind, I'd be likely to either refuse permission or rant at whatever idiot asked for my indulgence in a context where it would seem he's going to smoke anyway, regardless of whether I mind or not.

Setting your Language Level helps other users provide you with answers that aren't too complex or too simple.

The sentence with "smoked" is a remote conditional: the modal preterite "smoked" in the "if"-clause requires an auxiliary like "would" in the main clause. Having been delighted by her work on stage and screen, radio and recordings for my whole life, I really enjoyed these reminiscences. Could it be that since these two sentences have apparently similar meanings, they are not really conditionals but rather a courtesy or polite way of asking permission and therefore the present or past is acceptable? The conventional Would you mind if I asked observes the sequence of tenses of type II conditionals (simple past in the if-clause, conditional in the main clause), and it's this which causes people to say that the version with the present in the if-clause is incorrect. I thought that "would" would have required the past tense "smoked" being that at first glance it appears to be a "conditional" sentence.Spiced with star-studded anecdotes and personalised with moving stories about innocence and experience, the early struggles of an aspiring actress, and later professional rivalries, Do You Mind If I Smoke?

Highlighting her work in radio, TV and film, it also looks at her more serious roles on the stage, such as Hedda Gabler and Colette. I would suggest that correct question to pose, in this instance, would be: "Would you mind if I were to smoke here?
