used to與be used to的運用??

請問:

used to是過去曾,而be used to是習慣於…,但是像Local reports suggested the sub was a copy of a submarine known as a turtle, built in the 1700s.It was used to attack British ships during the American Revolution.

上面的was used to 也是be+used to啊?可是意思又是過去曾,或許是因為是過去式,但這要如何去區分呢?

謝謝

    A. used to + 原形V. : 表示過去的習慣,但現在已不復存在.

    a. He used to go jogging in the morning, but he doesn’t now.

    b. Basketball is the only sport that we used to play.

    B. be/get used to + Ving/N./Pron. : 表示習慣於…

    a. David is used to getting up early.

    b. We are used to busy life.

    c. They aren’t used to hard work, but they’ll get used to it soon.

    C. It was used to attack British ships during the American Revolution.

    a. It 指前面的 the sub.

    b. use 在此當使用解,因為發生在過去, 故用過去式,與上述A,B用法不同

    c. was used + to +原形V. : 表示被用來做…用途,

    d. was used to attack : 表示被用來攻擊…

    used to 有2種中文意思(1) 以前常常(2) 以前使用過

    be used to解釋成習慣於

    而used to +原V

    get / be used to+N或 V-ing

    妳舉例的It was used to attack ....

    這句話的used當做成一般動詞,所以後面要加原行動詞

    並不是毎句話 的be used to 一定是習慣於,有時可以解釋成使用

    我在想啊

    如果主詞是"活的"有感覺的(比如說人和活的動植物)

    有能力去"學習"的

    後面加上'be used to"就可以有"適應" "習慣"的意思

    比如說 I am used to (or, she is used to) Tom arriving late. (我(或是她)習慣了湯姆的遲到

    當這些是主詞的話 也比較難把"被使用在"用進去

    因為 你要怎樣去使用一個人啊?

    可是如果主詞本身是物體 沒有辦法去"習慣"什麼的話

    就也只能用在"被使用在"的情況

    還有 如果是用在"習慣於" 那後面應該是接一串名詞或情形

    如果是用於"被使用" 那後面或許比較會是一個動作

    比如說上面的"攻打" 那一類的

    不過 我相信有特例啦! 你還是要看整句話所要表達的!

    2007-08-26 16:30:50 補充:

    第一號回答者那個 "to be used to V-ing" 是在"習慣於" 這樣的解釋也不盡然! 因為像你說 "She is used to the fact that her baby cries throughout the night". (她習慣於她的嬰兒每天晚上哭) 這個句子裡就沒有 V-ing...

    Source(s): 我住加拿大十多年了 也唸了快要三個學歷 不過 答案裡很多”或許” ”比較”是因為這兩個詞用法都出於習慣

    您誤會這句話的意思了哦!

    It was used to attack British ships during the American Revolution.

    這是屬於過去式被動的句子, 意思是 《某某東西》被用來作為攻擊英國船隻。
