請幫我看這句為何這樣用?^^

I felt that they were being disrespectful,but because of my problems with English,I couldn't ask them about it.

在開頭那邊的"were being",請問為何要加入這兩個單字,

小弟困惑的是,being在這邊扮演的是什麼角色,它的意思是當作?

    being是表示進行式的意思,they were disrespectful, 他們是無禮的,他們是不尊重的,句子意思已完整,之所加上being,是筆者要表示他們的無禮行為目前正進行中。

    進行式都是 be動詞加 Ving, 故在were 後再加 being 來表示情況正進行中。

    那為何用 being,不用別的動詞,乃是因原句句型是 be 形容詞之結構,而形容詞前面只可用 be動詞,故又加了being ,而 being 現在分詞,其前須有一be動詞(如第二段所述),故 were 不可省去,而 有were being 同列之情況。

    亦即形容詞要表示其為進行式,就在該形容詞前面加 being 字。

    I felt that they were being disrespectful,but because of my problems with English,I couldn't ask them about it.

    這裡的"being"是用來表達一種"持續性"

    也就是表達"他們一直都很沒有禮貌"

    所以會用"過去進行式"

    如果只是單純用過去式:

    =>I felt that they were disrespectful,but because of my problems with English,I couldn't ask them about it.

    這樣就只是單純表達"他們很沒禮貌"

    少了"持續性"的意思在

    這裡的 being 可以當做 acting... 表現出來的行為.. 後面接的都是形容詞

    I felt that they were being disrespectful,but because of my problems with English,I couldn't ask them about it.

    I felt that they were (acting) disrespectful,but because of my problems with English,I couldn't ask them about it.

    They were being disrespectful 的 were 是 are 的過去式,整句是 past progressive tense(過去進行式) 當時,他們表現出很不尊重的態度..

    其它例句還有..

    I am being very nice to you. 我一直對你粉好..

    You are being very unreasonable. 你這樣粉不講理.. 希望有幫助~^^
