為什麼這句要用被動be Ved ???

Don't envy people who are possessed of great wealth.

為什麼要用 are possessed 被擁有呢?

人怎麼會被錢擁有???

還是加了of以後顛倒

是人擁有錢 所以用 be Ved ???

寫成這樣可以嗎?

Don't envy people who possesses of great wealth.

    這句的觀念在possess本身

    如果你去知道他的用法就會比較明白..

    possess

    這個字主詞要放物,如

    The country possesses rich mineral deposits. 這個國家擁有豐富礦藏。

    若人為主詞則要改變成"be possessed of "或被動形式

    Though plain-looking, Mary is possessed of great intelligence.

    雖然相貌平平, 瑪麗卻擁有智慧。

    One main idea possessed her; she must get away from home.

    她只有一個想法; 她一定要離家出走。

    He was almost possessed by a devil.

    他幾乎著了魔。

    因此,

    Don't envy people who are possessed of great wealth.

    我把它拆開會變成

    Don't envy people.(People are possessed of great wealth.)

    懂了嗎? :)

    possess是及物動詞

    可以寫Don't envy people who possess great wealth.

    (動詞後面不需要介系詞of)

    to be possessed of something 是比較文雅正式的用語(possessed在此應視為分詞當形容詞用,而非被動,因為後面用的介系詞不是by)

    = to own something

    所以Don't envy people who are possessed of great wealth.也是正確的。

    possessed of great wealth是分詞片語,當子句內的主詞補語,屬形容詞性質.

    見p.965 Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictioary

    例句:I don't possess a single DVD.

    He was possessed of a large fortuen, but sadly no brains to speak of.

    另見p.1155 Macmillan English Dictionar for Advanced Learners

    例句:Kate is a woman who possesses a rare intelligence.

    She looked mysterious, as if possessed of some deep secret.

    另possessed單獨當形容詞用時,有controlled by an evil spirit的意思.即被惡鬼纏身
