Англійська мова. Граматичний практикум: збірник граматичних вправ для середнього рівня - 2018


Дієслово в англійській мові має чотири групи часових форм: неозначені часи (Simple Tenses), тривалі часи (Continuous Tenses), доконані часи (Perfect Tenses) та доконано-тривалі часи (Perfect Continuous Tenses). У кожній групі дієслова вживаються у теперішньому (Present), минулому (Past) та майбутньому (Future) часах. Дієслова також вживаються в активному (Active Voice) та пасивному станах (Passive Voice).


Теперішній неозначений час вживається для опису регулярної дії чи постійного стану. При цьому часто називаються такі обставини часу:

always, often, usually, every day (month, year), sometimes, seldom, rarely, never. Наприклад:

She always eats fruit for supper. They sometimes go to the park on Sunday.    

Стверджувальна форма теперішнього неозначеного часу утворюється таким чином:

l/we/you/they + V1     He/she/it + Vs

Утворення форми 3-ї особи однини має такі особливості:

1) якщо інфінітив без to закінчується на -ss, -sh, -ch, -х, -о, додається закінчення -es: push pushes, fixfixes, gogoes;

2) якщо інфінітив без to закінчується на -у з попередньою приголосною, то -у змінюється на -і та додається закінчення -es: fly flies, crycries;

3) якщо інфінітив без to закінчується на -у з попереднім голосним, додається закінчення -s: stay stays, playplays.
