Grammar Guide: Adverb Clauses of Condition

"May the force be with you." This popular phrase comes from the world-famous Star Wars movies. However, to celebrate Star Wars Day on May 4, fans have tweaked the phrase to "May the fourth be with you." Star Wars was created by George Lucas in the late 1970s. The saga, consisting of 6 films, began with the fourth episode. Since then, Star Wars has hooked a loyal fan base and a legacy in science fiction.
