想請問while when差別? 用法限制?

想請問 while when 解釋為「當」的時候

兩者有何分別

另外是除了兩者後面的未來式都以現在式取代外

還有什麼特別的用法限制嗎?

是否有規定 主要子句 附屬子句 哪一句後面必接或不可接ing?

When the phone rang, my mom was cooking 這沒問題

那When my mom was cooking, the phone rang 這個可以嗎

又When my mom was cooking, the phone was ringing 又可以嗎?

希望有英文高手可以指點迷津一下 謝謝!!!

    while 正當( 當.....的時候,和...同時發生 )

    例:While Mum made dinner in the kitchen,I was watching cartoon TV.

    註:表示正當 A 動作發生時,B 動作同時發生或進行中。

    when 當...時,在那時,可表示:當一個較長時期的動作發生時,或當談到與個人年紀有關的時間時。

    例一:When I was very young, I didn't like school lessons at all.

    表示兩個短動作時,連接詞前或會有 just

    例二:You left me just when I needed you most.

    是邏輯問題‧

    當什麼人或事是主動態時以過去式來表示他或它的情況,而其副屬子句以過去進行式或現在進行式來表示發生的情況,因此,

    1. When the phone rang, my mom was cooking. 是可以的‧但是,

    2. When my mom was cooking, the phone is ringing. 才可以,因為時間的分界點在我媽在烹飪時,電話響了‧電話是主動響,不是被動響,而媽是被動烹飪的‧

    2012-12-02 22:09:44 補充:

    While 是當連接詞時才表示“當...的時候”, for example: I fell asleep while I was reading. 看書的時候不知不覺睡著了‧ While 又可以當名詞,是“時候、一會兒”,又是及物動詞,是“閒混”的意思.

    while是指"一段時間",後面子句多用進行式...持續之意

    when是指"時間的一點",後面子句多用簡單式...短時間

    While my mom was cooking,.....

    When I junp up,....

    應蓋是這樣
