what is the universal mood of might/could/should/might’ve been/wishes, wistfulness and pleading with uncertainty?

Might be. My linguistics is super rusty. Today’s quest began with a passing thought earlier; “what is the universal mood of might/could/should/might’ve been/wishes, wistfulness and pleading with uncertainty?” – and got reminded that English is the impoverished language in that regard, making English’s minimalist irrealis a likely prototype for a really basic universal.
