Ⅰ 动词的时态

英语共有16种时态,根据近几年曝光的四、六级考卷分析, 时态测试重点主要有:完成时态——现在完成时、过去完成时、将来完成时;进行时态——现在进行时、过去进行时、将来进行时、完成进行时;一般时态。



    (1)一般现在时表示没有时限的持久存在的动作或状态或现阶段反复发生的动作或状态,常和副词 usuallyoftenalways sometimes regularlynearoccasionallyevery year, every week 等连用。例如:

    1The moon moves round the earth..

    2Mr. Smith travels to work by bus every day.

   2)在由afteruntilbeforeoncewheneven ifin caseas long asas soon asthe moment 以及 ifunless 等引导的时间状语从句或条件状语从句中,通常用一般现在时代替将来时。例如:

   1I will tell him the news as soon as I see him.

   2I will not go to countryside if it rains tomorrow.

  3)某些表示起始的动词,可用一般现在时表示按规定、计划或安排要发生的动作,这类动词有:begocomestartdepartarrivebeginleave 等。例如:

 1The plane leaves at three sharp.

 2The new teachers arrive tomorrow.

  4)在由whywhatwherewhoeverwhothatas 等引导的从句中,也常用一般现在时代替将来时。例如:

    2be to +v表示计划安排要做的事,具有“必要”的强制性意义。例如:

    4be due to +v表示预先确定了的事, 必定发生的事。例如:

Ⅱ 动词的语态


    1We use electricity to run machines.  (主动语态)

    2Electricity is used to run machines.  (被动语态)

    1. 不能用于被动语态的动词和短语

    1)在英语中,不及物动词不能用于被动语态,但有些不及物动词(包括短语)容易引起误用。如:appear, belong, belong, die, escape, fall, happen, last, remain, succeed, occur, come true, take place, consist of

    2)某些表示状态或特征的及物动词,如:become, contain, cost, fit, have, resemble, suit也没有被动语态。

    2. 被动语态的时态形式

    常用的被动语态有表1 所列的几种时态形式。



时间    一般时               进行时            完成时

现在   am asked          am being asked    

       is asked          is being asked

       are asked         are being asked


       was be asked      was being asked

       were be asked     were being asked

将来   shall be asked                       shall have been asked

       will be asked                        will have been asked


过去   should be asked                       should have been asked

将来   would be asked                       would have been asked


    3. 短语动词的被动语态


    1So far no correct conclusion has arrived at.

    2All the rubbish should be got rid of.

    4.“get + -ed分词”的被动语态

    get + -ed分词”结构强调动作的结果,而非动作本身,常用来表示突发性的,出乎意料的偶然事件。例如:

    The boy got hurt on his way home from work.

    另外,“get + -ed分词”还可用于谈论为自己做的事,是主动的行为而不是被动的行为。例如:

    get dressed(穿衣服)     get divorced(离婚)

    get engaged(订婚)      get confused(迷惑不解)

    get lost(迷路)          get washed(洗脸)

    get married(结婚)

    5. 能带两个宾语和复合宾语的动词改为被动语态

    1) 能带两个宾语的动词改为被动语态时,一次只能由一个宾语作主语,另一个宾语被保留下来。例如:

    1We showed the visitors our new products.(主动语态)

    2The visitors were shown our new products.(被动语态)

    3Our new products were shown to the visitors.(被动语态)


    1The teacher appointed him League secretary.(主动语态)

    2He was appointed League secretary.(被动语态)

    6. 被动语态与系表结构的区别

    1The novel was well written.(系表结构)

    2The novel was written by Diskens.(被动语态)

    7. 少数动词的主动语态有时有被动的意思

    1The book is selling remarkably well.

    2The song sounds very beautiful.


    3My watch needs cleaning. (= My watch needs to be cleaned).

    能像need这样用的动词还有:want, require, deserve, do, owe, bind等。
