Stative verbs

Глаголы состояния в английском языке

В английском языке существуют глаголы, которые не употребляются во временах группы Continuous или длительного времени. Эти глаголы относятся к группе, которую мы называем Stative verbs или State verbs. Они обозначают не действие, а состояние или положение. Их еще часто называют non-continuous verbs, non-action verbs, non-progressive verbs.

Результат пошуку зображень за запитом "HARDLY / SCARCELY / BARELY ... WHEN"


When a story is told in the past tense, the adverbials hardly, scarcely, barely and no sooner are often used to emphasise that one event quickly followed another. The verb describing the earlier event is usually in the past perfect tense. If hardly, scarcely, barely and no sooner are in the initial position, the subject and auxiliary are inverted:

Hardly had I arrived home when my phone rang. (I had hardly arrived home when my phone rang.)

Scarcely had she finished reading when she fell asleep. (She had scarcely finished reading when she fell asleep.)

Barely had they won the match when the coach had a heart attack. (They had barely won the match when the coach had a heart attack.)

some / any

We use “some” in three specific situations: 1)In positive affirmative sentences with countable nouns in the plural and with uncountable nouns. Example “There are some apples” and “there is some rice.” 2)In questions asking to receive something for example: “Can I have some apples?” or “Can I have some rice?” 3)We use “some” in questions offering something to someone like “Would you like some apples?” We use the word “any” in two situations: 1) In normal questions for countable plural nouns and uncountable nouns, like for example “Do you have any apples?” and “Do you have any rice?” 2) We can also use “any” in negative statements: “I don’t want any apples” and “I don’t have any rice.”

Conditional Type 2


In a Type 2 conditional sentence, the tense in the ‘if’ clause is the simple past, and the tense in the main clause is the present conditional or the present continuous conditional.

If clause (condition) Main clause (result)
If + simple past present conditional or present continuous conditional
If this thing happened that thing would happen.

As in all conditional sentences, the order of the clauses is not fixed. You may have to rearrange the pronouns and adjust punctuation when you change the order of the clauses, but the meaning is identical.
