When listening to some podcast recently, I encountered into the structure. I don't remember the whole sentence the phrase was used in, but if my memory serves me well, the sentence went like this:
I should like you to introduce Mr X.... It was at the very beginning of the podcast.
I presume it is a formal and traditional equivalent of "would like", and is used to urge a polite request or statement.
Terri@ I suppose it's typical of the British, using that structure, but I doubt it's common. Guys, what do you reckon ?
Cheers to all.
Gdybym pytala, zeby ktos 'introduced' kogos - to jest mozliwe.
Dear X, I should like you to introduce Mr. Y to the audience., cvhociaz to 'would like' jest milej.
