In your example of the
El Imperfecto de Subjuntivo
You're using the verb haber ie
Hubiera hubiese etc
So what's the preterito pluscuamperfecto de subjuntivo?
I thought that was
I thought el imperfecto de subjuntivo was the past subjuntivo ie
El imperfecto de Subjuntivo of the verb haber is:
The same goes for tuviera/tuviese, quisiera, quisiese, pudiera/pudiese, hablara/hablase, etc...
What might be a bit confusing is that El Pluscuamperfecto de Subjuntivo of any verb is going to contain the forms hubiera or hubiese, because El Pluscuamperfecto is a perfect tense, therefore it's going to use haber + the participle of any verb, for example:
In the lesson about the verb haber in El Imperfecto de Subjuntivo, you will only find sentences using hubiera/hubiese as an impersonal verb (there was/there were), not combined with any participle, because that would then be El pluscuamperfecto de Subjuntivo.
There is a TIP inside the lesson pointing out this difference.
I hope this clarified it for you.
