La Renaissance

The original incarnation of this tool was called The Subjunctivator, which I realized made it sound like it converted things into the subjunctive. Since what it really does is advise you about the subjunctive, I rebaptized it The Subjunctivisor! While I was at it, I added more verbs and expressions as well as notes about optional and contested usages. Happy subjunctivising!
