英文問題一問 get

我常問一些句子句子用get +verb +ed 是否美式英文呢?

如 xxx gets singled out for

great quarterly

如果唔用get用is/are係咪一樣意思呢?

若不,有甚麼可以代替呢?

    get can be used as a linking verb like "be/is/ are" =(使)達到; 處於.

    When get is a linking verb, it is used to say that something, especially something bad, happens to someone or something.

    get+adj/passive 較多用於負面事件, 語氣,亦較 be/is/are 強

    e.g. get hurt, get broken, get stolen, get singled out etc.

    (be hurt, be broken, be stolen etc.)

    e.g You might get hurt if you stand there.

    (You might be hurt if you stand there.)

    e.g. My dad got killed in a car crash.(...was killed)

    e.g. I knew I would get shouted at if I was late home. (...would be shouted

    at,,,)

    呢句係一句passive voice既句子

    唔係美唔美式英文既問題

    例如: My wallet got stolen. ( =My wallet was stolen. )

    成句係解:我既錢包俾人偷去了

    用番你個example: peter gets singled out. ( = peter is singled out. )

    呢句係解: peter俾人挑選出黎

    唔係美唔美式英文既問題
