GET V3

Bazen edilgen mana vermek için be+V3 yerine get+V3 kullanırız. Get ani ve beklenmedik olaylarda tercih edilir, action belirten yüklemlerle kullanılır, state belirten yüklemlerle kullanılmaz.

NOTE: Bu yapı aktif cümle anlamına gelecek şekilde de kullanılır; bazen sadece öyle kalıplaşmış olduğundan, bazense beklenmezlik anlamı verdiği veya aniden gerçekleştiğinden GET ile kullanılır.

  • The little boy got lost in the park. (Küçük çocuk parkta kayboldu.)
  • They’re getting married later this year. (Bu yılın sonuna doğru evlenecekler)

NEED + Ving

Need yüklemi ardından Ving alınca anlam edilgen olur.

  • The ceiling needs painting (= The ceiling needs to be painted.)
  • My hair needs cutting (= My hair needs to be cut.)

HAVE ST V3

1) İstenmeyen bir eylemin gerçekleştiğini belirtmek için have ST done kalıbını kullanabiliriz. Burada mana pasiftir ve eylemi yapan özne konumundaki kişi veya şey değildir. Aksine bunlar eylemden etkilenene nesnenin sahibi durumundadırlar:

  • Jim had his car stolen last night. (= Jim’s car was stolen)
  • They had their roof blown off in the storm. (= Their roof was blown off in the storm)

ÇİFT NESNE ALAN YÜKLEMLERIN PASİFLERİ

İngilizce’de bazı yüklemler dolaylı ve dolaysız (indirect and direct) olmak üzere iki nesne alabilirler. Her iki nesne de başa çekilerek pasif yapılabilir:

  • They gave him a lot of presents.
  • He was given a lot of presents.
  • A lot of presents were given to him.


IT’S SAID etc. THAT…

acknowledge       believe          declare          fear            know             report            suspect

allege                  claim             estimate        feel             project          say                think

assume               consider        expect           find            prove            suppose        understand

Yukarıdaki yüklemlerden sonra that clause geliyorsa bu cümlelerin iki ayrı pasif şekli olur. İlki It is said that… şeklinde başlayandır. Diğeri ise şöyle yapılır:

  1. That clause’daki özne başa, yani it zamirinin yerine getirilir.
  2. It zamirinin yüklemi yeni özneye göre çekimlenir.
  3. That zamiri kaldırılır, that-clause yüklemi to V1 biçimine getirilir.
