Порядок слов в английском предложении: наречия с глаголом

Урок 110

Некоторые наречия (например, always, also, probably) идут с глаголом в середине предложения:

  • Helen always drives to work.
  • We were feeling very tired and we were also hungry.
  • The concert will probably be cancelled.

Изучите эти правила по расположению наречий в середине предложения. (это только общие правила, т.е. есть и исключения)

1) Если глаголом является одно слово (drives/fell/cooked и т.п.), наречие (adverb) обычно идет перед глаголом (verb):

  adverb verb  
Helen always drives to work.
I almost fell as I was going down the stairs.
  • I cleaned the house and also cooked the dinner. (not cooked also)
  • Lucy hardly ever watches television and rarely reads newspapers.
  • ‘Shall I give you my address?’ ‘No, I already have it.’

Заметьте, что эти наречия (always/often/also и др.) идут перед have to ... (т.к. это цельная фраза):

  • Joe never phones me. I always have to phone him. (not I have always to phone)

2) Но наречия идут после am/is/are/was/were:

  • We were feeling very tired and we were also hungry.
  • Why are you always late? You’re never on time.
  • The traffic isn’t usually as bad as it was this morning.

3) Если глаголом является два и более слова (например, can remember / doesn’t eat / will be cancelled), наречие обычно идет после первого глагола (can/doesn’t/will и т.п.):

  verb 1 adverb verb 2  
I can never remember her name.
Clare doesn’t often eat meat.
  Are you definitely going away next week?
The concert will probably be cancelled.
  • You have always been very kind to me.
  • Jack can’t cook. He can’t even boil an egg.
  • Do you still work for the same company?
  • The house was only built a year ago and it’s already falling down.

Заметьте, что probably идет перед отрицанием (isn’t/won’t и т.п.). Т.е. мы говорим:

  • I probably won’t see you. or I will probably not see you. (not I won’t probably)

Мы также используем all и both в этих расположениях:

  • We all felt ill after the meal. (not we felt all ill)
  • My parents are both teachers. (not my parents both are teachers)
  • Sarah and Jane have both applied for the job.
  • We are all going out this evening.

Иногда мы используем is/will/did и др. вместо повторения части предложения (см. урок 51). Обратите внимание на расположение always/never и др. в этих предложениях:

  • He always says he won’t be late, but he always is. (= he is always late)
  • I’ve never done it and I never will. (= I will never do it)

Мы обычно ставим always/never и др. перед глаголом в таких предложениях.
