English term or phrase: would stop me selling
Although I couldn't wait to leave school and join Grandpa permanently, if I ever played truant for as much as an hour, Grandpa would stop me selling on the barrow in the morning.

Je ne comprends pas le "would stop me selling" en fin de phrase. Comment le traduiriez-vous ou, tout simplement, que signifie-t-il?

neutral  JulieM: pour le reste, je ne sais pas, mais "would stop" se traduit ici par un imparfait de l'indicatif : mettait un terme (et non par un conditionnel) :-)
