2句英文法請教大家

【1】Timmy:Oh,Dad! I was looking forward to this trip.

【2】Mom: Me, too.While you two were gone, I was going to get a lot done.

對話相連,將去旅遊.(問題一) 尚未旅遊,為何用“was”?改用 “am ”有何差別?(問題二) 第二句中 “While”用成 “When” ,有何不同?;尚未旅遊,媽媽答話為何出現 “were gone” 及 “was going “;又問“get a lot done” 中的”done”詞性是什麼?在形容什麼嗎?

    (歡迎指教)

    (喜歡的話就選我吧)

    【1】Timmy:Oh,Dad! I was looking forward to this trip.

    【2】Mom: Me, too.While you two were gone, I was going to get a lot done.

    問題一) 尚未旅遊,為何用“was”?改用 “am ”有何差別?

    這邊的動詞是 "was looking forward to" 期待

    期待現在式是 "is looking forward to"

    例句 He is looking forward to coming to Taiwan. (我現在期待來到台灣)

    期待過去式是 "was looking forward to"

    例句 I was looking forward to meeting him. (我過去很期待跟他見面 =現在沒那麼期待了)

    (問題二) 第二句中 “While”用成 “When” ,有何不同?

    When 跟 While 的意思很相近: "當.... 的時候 ...."

    不同的是:

    While用在 "當做的動作有一段時間"

    例句 I did my homework while you were cooking. (我利用你在煮菜的時候來做作業)

    When用在 "當做的動作有是瞬間或接近瞬間"

    例句 I ran out of the classroom when the bell rang. (我在打鐘的時候跑出教室)

    (問題三)尚未旅遊,媽媽答話為何出現 “were gone” 及 “was going

    【1】Timmy:Oh,Dad! I was looking forward to this trip. (可能爸爸取消了這次旅行 讓Timmy失望)

    【2】Mom: Me, too.While you two were gone, I was going to get a lot done. (媽媽原本也很期待 但因為現在取消了旅行 所以她說她"原本"要利用他們不在的時候做一些事) -- (現在旅行被取消了 媽媽也很失望 因為她現在不能做多一些事了)

    因為是【她"原本"要利用他們不在的時候做一些事】所以才用過去式 "were gone" "was going to..."

    (問題四)又問“get a lot done” 中的”done”詞性是什麼?在形容什麼嗎?

    "get a lot (of things) done" 省略()

    "done" 是 形容詞

    詞義是 "把....完成" "完成的" "一定的" 用來形容 "a lot of things"

    "get a lot done" = "把一些東西做好

    例句

    I will get this done by tomorrow 在明天以前我會把這做好

    This is a done deal 這交易是一定的事

    有相關問題的話 歡迎補充

    【1】Timmy:Oh,Dad!  I was looking forward to this trip.

    【2】Mom: Me, too. While you two were gone, I was going to get a lot done.

    1)如果尚未去旅遊,就不該用過去式.

    2)while改成when只有一點差異,while表示是同一時間.when不強調是同時.

    你的第一句話給人的資訊是Timmy現在己經對旅遊不抱期望了.

    第二句話好像媽媽原來打算在父子兩人出遊時,做很多的事,但郤沒有能夠完成.

    這兩句話放在一起,牛頭不對馬嘴.

    兩句的be動詞應全部改成現在式才合理(而且媽媽不會去旅遊,留在家做事).

    Timmty: Oh, Dad! I am looking forward to this trip.

    Mom: Me, too. While you two are gone, I am going to get a lot done.

    (問題一) 尚未旅遊,為何用“was”?改用 “am ”有何差別?

    答: 用“was”表示他期待這次旅行已經有一段時間了.不是現在才開始期待.

    (問題二) 第二句中 “While”用成 “When” ,有何不同?

    答:因為這次旅行有一段時間,不是馬上就完畢. 所以老媽要趁他們不在的期間把很多事情做完成.

    ”done”詞性是完成式.
