Вопросительные предложения английского языка.
Всего в английском 5 видов вопросов (общий, специальный, альтернативный, разделительный, к подлежащему), и каждый из них имеет свои особенности. Мы подробно остановимся на каждом из них:
1. Общий вопрос (General Question) - самый распространённый и важный тип вопроса в английском языке. Зная правила составления общего вопроса можно с лёгкостью создавать и все остальные.

Порядок слов в общем вопросе следующий:
Вспомогательный глагол (Auxiliary verb) - Подлежащее (Subject) - Сказуемое (Predicate) - Дополнение (Object) - Обстоятельство (Adverbial modifier)? Например:
Do you have a cup of coffee every morning? - Ты выпиваешь чашечку кофе каждое утро?
Основными членами вопросительных предложений являются вспомогательный глагол, подлежащее исказуемое, так как их присутствие обязательно. А остальные члены предложения могут и упускаться из предложения. Например:
Does he swim? - Он плавает?
Do you like ice-cream? - Ты любишь мороженое?
Если в предложении используется модальный глагол (все, кроме have to и need to) или глагол to be, тогда не требуется помощи дополнительного вспомогательного глагола,так как эти глаголы сами становятся вспомогательными и ставятся перед субъектом. Обязательными членами предложения тогда становятся вспомогательный глагол и подлежащее, а остальные могут упускаться в зависимости от контекста. Рассмотрим на примерах:
Are you a manager? - Вы менеджер?
Can you sing well? - Вы можете хорошо петь?
May I come in? - Мне можно войти?
Must he sign his name here? - Должен ли он подписаться здесь?
Would you like another piece of cake? - Не хотели бы Вы ещё один кусочек торта?
Общий вопрос может быть также отрицательным. Например:
Don't you like this film? - Разве тебе не нравится этот фильм?
Isn't she adorable? - Разве она не прелестна?
Can't we meet another day? - Не могли бы мы встретиться в другой день?

Мы рассматривали много вопросов в настоящем простом времени, а как же задавать вопросы о прошлых действиях или будущих? Зная порядок слов в общем вопросе это не составит особого труда. Вопросы в прошедшем и будущем времени отличаются от вопросов в настоящем только вспомогательными глаголами. Вспомогательный глагол прошедшего времени - это did, а будущего - will. Глаголы did и will не изменяются по лицам и числам. Рассмотрим на нескольких примерах:
Do you like skating? - Тебе нравится кататься на коньках?
Did you like skating? - Тебе нравилось кататься на коньках?
Will you like skating? - Тебе понравится кататься на коньках?
Does he ask you many questions? - Он задаёт тебе много вопросов?
Did he ask you many questions? - Он задавал тебе много вопросов?
Will he ask you many questions? - Он будет задавать тебе много вопросов?
Все общие вопросы требуют кратких ответов: да или нет. Краткие ответы в английском напрямую зависят от вспомогательного глагола, использованного в вопросе. Рассмотрим на примерах:
Does she get on your nerves? -Yes, she does. -No, she doesn't. - Она действует тебе на нервы? -Да. -Нет.
Did you get a good mark for this exam? -Yes, I did. -No, I didn't. - Ты получил хорошую оценку за этот экзамен? -Да. -Нет.
Are you Jared's sister? -Yes, I am. -No, I'm not. - Ты сестра Джареда? -Да. -Нет.
Is he the oldest child in the family? -Yes, he is. -No, he isn't. - Он самый старший ребёнок в семье? -Да. -Нет.
Can you call me later? -Yes, I can. -No, I can't. - Вы можете позвонить мне попозже? -Да. -Нет.
May I come in? -Yes, you may. -No, you may not. - Можно мне войти? -Да. -Нет.
2. Специальный вопрос (Special Question) - это вопрос, начинающийся со специальных вопросительных слов: who? (кто?) what? (что?) where? (где?) when? (когда?) how much? (сколько?) whose? (чей?) и т.д. Его также в народе называют Wh-question.
Зная правила составления общих вопросов в английском, можно без труда составить и специальный вопрос. Ведь основное правило специальных вопросов - это ставить вопросительное слово (what, who, why) перед вспомогательным глаголом, а остальная часть вопроса остаётся такой же, как и в общем вопросе. Рассмотрим на примере и сравним:
Did you fight with him again? - Ты опять с ним подрался?
Why did you fight with him again? - Почему ты опять с ним подрался?
Where did you fight with him again? - Где ты опять с ним подрался?
When did you fight with him again? - Когда ты опять с ним подрался?
Иногда предметы к которым задаётся специальный вопрос, выпадают из общего вопроса. Например:
Do you speak French? - Вы говорите по французски?
What languages do you speak? - На каких языках Вы говорите?
Does he like watching TV in the evening? - Он любит смотреть телевизор вечером?
What does he like watching in the evening? - Что он любит смотреть вечером?
When does he like watching TV? - Когда он любит смотреть телевизор?
В предложениях в модальными глаголами или с to be , вопросительные слова ставятся опять же в начале, перед этими глаголами. Например:
How can I help you? - Как я могу Вам помочь?
What is your name? - Как твоё имя?/ Как тебя зовут?
Where are you from? - Откуда ты родом?
Why should I help him? - Почему я должна ему помогать?
Which food is your favourite? - Какая твоя любимая еда?
Часто в английских специальных вопросах встречаются предлоги, связанные с основным глаголом. Как правило, эти предлоги ставятся в самый конец предложения. Например:
What are you looking for? -Что ты ищешь?
Who does he take after? - На кого он похож?/ В кого он пошёл?
Who is she talking to? - С кем она разговаривает?
What are they talking about? - О чём они разговаривают?
3. Альтернативный вопрос (Alternative Question) - это такой вид вопроса, который предлагает сделать выбор.В альтернативном вопросе всегда присутствует союз or (или). Особенностью этого вопроса, является то, что ответ как бы уже присутствует в вопросе, нужно только выбрать из двух заданных предметов, лиц, качеств и т.д. Рассмотрим на примере:
Do you like apricots or peaches? - Ты любишь абрикосы или персики?
Is he from England or from Wales? - Он из Англии или из Уэльса?
Can she sing or dance? - Она может петь или танцевать?
Как видно из примеров, построение альтернативных вопросов мало отличается от общих, разве что добавляется союз or (или) и дополнительная часть для выбора. Дополнительная часть обычно укороченная и может быть выраженная одним словом или короткой фразой. Например:

Is she a lawyer or a judge? - Она адвокат или судья?
Did he go to his place or to his friend's? - Он пошёл к себе или к другу?
Will you be in office at 5pm or at home? - Ты будешь в офисе к 5 вечера или дома?
Альтернативный вопрос может быть похож и на специальный. Наприме:
What are you going to order: pizza or sushi? - Что ты собираешься заказать: пиццу или суши?
When are having a holiday: in June or in July? - Когда у тебя будут каникулы: в июне или в июле?
4. Разделительный вопрос (Tag Question) - это вид вопроса, выражающий сомнение, удивление илиподтверждение сказанного. Разделительный вопрос образуется с помощью добавления к обычному утвердительному предложению краткой фразы с вспомогательным глаголом, придающей всему предложению сомнение. Русский эквивалент разделительного вопроса - "не так ли?"
В английском, чтобы правильно составить эту краткую разделительную часть, нужно внимательно изучить само предложение. Если предложение утвердительное, то разделительная часть будет отрицательной, и наоборот, если предложение отрицательное, то разделительная часть будет утвердительной. Разделительный вопрос образует с помощью вспомогательного глагола, использованного в предложении, иместоимения, которое смогло бы заменить подлежащее этого предложения. Давайте рассмотрим на примере:
John is a good student, isn't he? - Джон хороший студент, не так ли? (предложение утвердительное, значит разделительная часть отрицательная)
Попробуем составить ещё несколько разделительных вопросов:
Linda is the most beautiful girl in the class, isn't she? - Линда самая красивая девочка в классе, не так ли?
Jamie's parents aren't from Spain, are they? - Родители Джейми не из Испании, не так ли?
We aren't going to London tomorrow, are we? - Мы не собираемся ехать завтра в Лондон, не так ли?
It will be the best summer in their life, won't (will not) it? - Это будет лучшее лето в их жизни, не так ли?
He can climb any tree, can't he? - Он может взобраться на любое дерево, не так ли?
Мы уже знаем, что все английские глаголы, за исключением to be и модальных, строят вопросы с помощью вспомогательных глаголов do, does или did (если речь идёт о прошлом). Например:

You don't like your neighbours, do you? - Ты не любишь своих соседей, не так ли?
He likes his friend's sister, doesn't he? - Он любит сестру своего друга, не так ли?
They found a new babysitter, didn't they? - Они нашли новую няньку, не так ли?
Как видно из примеров, все разделительные вопросы задаются с целью выразить сомнение, удивиться или найти подтверждение сказанному.
5. Вопрос к подлежащему (Subject Question) - это особая категория вопросов, в которых не нужно менятьпрямой порядок слов, т.е. он остаётся таким, как в обычном повествовательном предложении. Таким образом, это единственный вид вопросов, где нет надобности в вспомогательных глаголах и не происходит инверсии (перестановки членов предложения). Например:
Who came to the party? - Кто пришёл на вечеринку?
What happened at the end? - Что произошло в итоге?
How many students arrived to the lesson? - Сколько студентов пришли на урок?
Часто вопросы к подлежащему начинаются именно с вопросительных слов who?, what?, how many/ how much?Смысл вопроса к подлежащему кроется в том, что вопросительные местоимения в нём выполняют роль подлежащего. Например:
Who is taliking to you? - Кто говорит с тобой? (прямой порядок слов в предложении: Subject - Predicate - Object)

My Definition of Love

...My Definition of Love Love has so many definitions which it makes impossible to define precisely. As a matter of fact, it is one of the most difficult questions to answer. “I can’t stop thinking about you.” That’s one definition of love. The Bible says “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.” (1st Corinthians 13:5-7). In order for me to give you my best definition of love, I would have to use the four types of love given by the ancient Greek philosophers. They are phileo, the love of friendship; storge, the love of family and relatives; eros, the love of affection and obsession; and agape, the unconditional love. Phileo, the love of friendship, is not sexual in nature. Phileo basically covers everything that has to do with a friendly affection of one person to another. It includes loyalty to friends, family, and their community. Phileo love truly describes friendship and the bonds that are strengthened by shared experiences. Most of us have at least someone that we call best friend. The tender affection we have for them is an example of phileo. Storge means family affection between family members. It is extremely important for all human beings, children and adults. It is natural......

My Definition of Love

...Narrative Report IV- Priestley Bilang isang make-up artist, sa tingin ko naman po nagawa ko ang aking tungkulin. Nagdala rin ako ng mga kagamitang kailangan kahit na hindi nakaatas sa akin para makadagdag sa aming props. Nagbabayad din ako ng mga kontribyusyon sa tamang oras, minsan ako din ang naniningil sa mga kapwa ko kamag-aral na kinikipit ang pera huwag lamang makapagbayad. Una dinadaan ko sa mahinahong pag-uusap pero pag naka ilang singil na ako at nakikita kong may extra money pa siya nagagalit na ko. Dahil unfair naman po kung kami nag bayad sila hindi kahit na para sa project namin ito. May mga pagkakataon na hindi ako nakakapunta sa mga shooting dahil hindi ako pinapayagan pero sinisigurado ko na sa tuwing nandun ako ay nakakatulong ako. Minsan nanghihinayang din akong pumunta dahil kadalasan ay kaunti lamang an gaming nagagawa dahil sa mga harutan at tawanan ng mga karakter. Kung mapapansin nyo pos a aming pelikula wala halos ayos ang mga kalalakihan dahil nawala ang mga biniling bigote ng mga Prayle at ni Simoun.

Reflection Paper

...Reflection Paper Shannon B. Payton Liberty University Introduction This paper is about reflecting on what was covered in Theology 104. There are many Christians who understand that God loves us and wants the best for His children. There are many subjects, videos, and extracted material that has been read or discussed over the span of four weeks which has given me a better understanding of the Bible and Christianity. My reflection for this paper I have chosen two topics that I have chosen to address for this paper. First, topic I have chosen will be Grace and secondly I will be focusing on Love. Grace Theological definition of “grace” as many scholar s of the bible will define this word as the unmerited favor of God toward man. Grace can also be defined as like forgiveness, repentance, regeneration and salvation to mean something as broad as describing the whole of God’s activity towards man or as narrow as describing one segment of activity (Baker’s Evangelical Bible Dictionary). Often times many would attribute grace toward s how women carry themselves and even in the bible grace can be defined through many scripture as action of one who are in high position. Biblical Foundation The first time Grace has been in mentioned was in Genesis chapter 8 because of Noah obedience to God and God was tired or as the bible scholar would state grieved by man’s wickedness and caused God to erase mankind. In all this, Noah found favor with God. Here the word favor and......

My Family

...being in love, providing security, socialization, or something completely different. The United States Census Bureau (2010) defines family as a, “Primary social group involving social or generational alliances, permanence, concern for the total person, heightened emotionality, caring for one another, mutual goals, an altruistic orientation to members, and a governance approach that is nurturing.” Freidman, Bowden and Jones (2003) also states family is composed of persons joined together by bonds of marriage, blood, or adoption and residing in the same household (p.9). These are just some of the many definitions of family I have come across in my search. We are never given a chance to choose our family, however that is why knowing and learning the meaning of family is essential. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate and define what family is. I will explain my own familial experiences over the years, and how this definition is constantly changing. I will also share the perspectives of others on how they view family. Finally, I will share my definition of family, including the theoretical foundation I find most helpful to explain it. Various Perspectives on Family In recent weeks, I have had the opportunity to speak with my own family, coworkers, and friends about what family means to them.

Hum/100

...Ancient Cultures: Love HUM/100 Ancient Cultures: Love My love, I have tried with all my being to grasp a form comparable to thine own, but nothing seems worthy; I know now why Shakespeare could not compare his love to a summer’s day. It would be a crime to denounce the beauty of such a creature as thee, to simply cast away the precision God had placed in forging you. Each facet of your being whether it physical or spiritual is an ensnarement from which there is no release. But I do not wish release. I wish to stay entrapped forever. With you for all eternity, our hearts, always as one (Kolos, 2012). This is the image of love often and initially conjured when we talk about love. However, the word “love” can have a variety of related but distinct meaning in different contexts and cultures. We will look the definition of love and do a brief assessment of how ancient Greek and Romans viewed or definition of interpersonal love in their culture. We will compare their view to our modern day view/definition of interpersonal love. First let us look at our definition of love according to dictionary.com (2012). “Love is a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. A feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for parent, child, or friend. Sexual passion or desire. A person toward whom love is felt; beloved person; sweetheart.” There were many more definitions addressed representing all of human kindness, compassion, and......

My Definition Paper

...As I began writing my Definition paper, I had three major problems: placing my thesis, avoiding grammatical errors, and finding the origin of my word. I struggled with having just one thesis. I had two or more sentences that could have been interpreted as my thesis. In this paper, I only had two major grammatical problems: comma splices, and topic sentences. My final problem was finding the origin of my word. The word love has several different origins. I struggled with finding the correct one. When writing a paper, you should always have a thesis. It should be one strong sentence which explains what you are going to discuss in your paper. The details that you discuss in your three body paragraphs should always relate back to your thesis.

Love has several definitions, it is not just between boy and girl, not just between husband and wife or not between dad and son. Actually no one can give the truest and deepest meaning of love. Thousands of book related to love, thousands movies and millions definition has been created but no has proved the actual definition of love. The writer of the song “My Heart Will Go on”, Horner James defines love between boy and girl. According to him love is a strong bond once connected nothing can break it. It is trust, believe no matter how far or near you are, which last for a lifetime. This four minute song mirrors the themes of disaster and love from the movie “Titanic”.

Shakespearian Poetry - a Comparison Between Sonnets Xviii & Cxxx

...Many artists discover their love for art and the effect it has on people at a very young age, as did Shakespeare, as his poems reflect that he may have started writing as early as the age of 18 years old. His early sonnets are immature when compared to his later ones. Shakespeare’s use of nature imagery is clearly apparent in all his sonnets, but his use of nature imagery and its quality changes drastically. As his use of nature imagery changes, the tone of the sonnets also transforms, turning from being light-hearted and beautiful to dark and somewhat grotesque. More importantly, his definition of love itself takes on a different shape, going from physical attraction to a truer love. Finally, his allusions to religion become much more specific and more directed to the person he is writing about. Clearly Shakespeare’s poetry matures with time and is reflected by his definition of love and how differently it is expressed in Sonnet XVIII compared to Sonnet CXXX. In Sonnet XVIII, Shakespeare focuses on nature imagery to describe his young love. “…Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer’s lease hath all too short a date: Sometimes too hot the eye of heaven shines…” He begins by comparing the love to a summer’s day, but says she is more beautiful. He refers to summer being too short and the sun, at times, shining too brightly and making the day too hot, but other times the sun may be blocked by clouds completely. All of......

Family

...family we must first look at the definition of family. According to Merriam Webster Online there are many different definitions of the word family. The main ones are that family is a group of individuals living under one roof and usually under one head, the second definition is, a group of persons of common ancestry and the third definition is a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation. In these three definitions only the second definition involves a bloodline that connects the individuals to one another. Each of these three definitions expresses different views of what family is. To me, the criteria for family is much deeper than being from the same bloodline. As Christians we are taught to believe that we are all family and related to one another. Unfortunately, in this day and age we do not keep Family is that person or group of people who will and do love you unconditionally, help to take care of you mentally and financially and help to look out for your wellbeing.

Love: Elaine Hatfield, William Walster, And Francesca M. Cancian

...There are many different interpretations of love. The Webster’s II Dictionary Third Edition states that love is, “Intense affection; A feeling of attraction resulting from sexual desire” (Unknown 422). This is the official dictionary definition of love but there are many others including my own. Elaine Hatfield, William Walster, and Francesca M. Cancian have similar views of what love is; however, Paulo Coelho’s view is more closely related to mine.

To be in a relationship one must commit to someone love someone and be there for someone. I think that being in a relationship is great. Poems can say words that other people cant and sometimes I don’t have the words to say to someone so put it in a love song. My heart beats for you my heart loves you my heart help me to express things that I could not say on my own. A special world for you and me A special bond one cannot see It wraps us up in its cocoon And holds us fiercely in its womb. Its fingers spread like fine spun gold Gently nestling us to the fold Like silken thread it holds us fast Bonds like this are meant to last.

What Success Is to Me

...Success takes many different definitions. People have different interpretations of what success really means. For me is as simple as: living well and laughing often. The idea of living well is a very broad statement. Living well, in my opinion is getting success in personal, social and professional life. If I can achieve all of these three levels of success, I believe that I have lived well. Personal success for me is being able enjoy little things that life has to offer. For instance; understanding and appreciating diversity. To have someone to love and treasure, to meet the right person, fall in love, and get marry. To feel that I’m able to love my child and pass on wisdom to him .Feeling that someone loves me, is something that makes me completely happy and successful. Because I believe that without love, life is not thoroughly complete, thus never truly achieve success. I believe that, by being mentally and physically healthy, I have achieved personal success. When I get home to see my loving husband, my loved child, and then I’m able to sit down, relax and appreciate life, then I’m successful in my own right. Social success has a lot to do with the natural tendencies that I as human posses. For instance, I have identified good friends that I can count on as well as they can count on me. Meaning that I have good friend where I can rely on. I know that if a need help on anything, there will always be a helping hand. A part of societal success is also to learn how to......
