關代When的疑問?

When 後面的動詞哪時是加ed..

哪時是加ing..

ex:

When I arrived, Tom had already gone home.

When I was walking on the street, I met Mary.

arrived是加ed...walking是加ing

可以跟我說哪裡不同嗎?

解說一下何時用ed..何時用ing

謝謝囉^ ^

    這兩句都是用過去形式 至於要如何表達 則是看你說這句話的意思

    When I arrived, Tom had already gone home. <--當我到達時, Tom 已經離去

    這句話強調的是到了後發現Tom走了

    而 When I was walking on the street, I met Mary. 當我在街上走時,我遇見Mary.

    這句話強調正在走路時 也就是正在做什麼的時候,發生了這件事

    所強調的是過去進行式

    至於為什麼不用When I was arriving--->因為你不會說 當我正在到達時,發生了某件事 而是到達之後才發生的

    It's not related to "WHEN".

    When I arrived, Tom had already gone home.

    - you put -ed because It is past tense. (Tom had "already" gone home)

    When I was walking on the street, I met Mary.

    - you put -ing because you have a BE verb infront of it (was) so the following verb has to have -ing.

    i'll explain in Chinese when I get home.
