born是動詞?為甚麼was在動詞之後呢?這是錯的嗎?

    通常一句句子係有多過一種方式去表達。如果由我們選擇去寫的話, 的確很大機會寫成我們熟識, 覺得較順眼的表達方式, 即是

    A man was born without money.

    但係問題中的例句又是否錯呢? 不如先看以下一個例子是否會俾到我們一D頭緒?

    http://www.iei.uiuc.edu/structure/structure1/adjcl...

    The money (that had been) placed on the table was mine. 當中的 relative pronoun (that) 和 had been 都可以刪去, 令句子變成

    The money placed on the table was mine. 這句又似唔似例句呢?

    另外一條網上的短片, 標題是這樣寫的

    Viewers inspired by a man born without legs who's racing through life.

    一位天生沒有雙腿的人講述他如何奮鬥一生, 令觀眾非常鼓舞。

    http://video.aol.com/video-detail/man-born-with-no...

    由以上兩個例子可見, 那個例句是正確的, 只是我們睇唔慣。 當中其實係刪除左 relative pronoun 和 verb-to-be。但係唔係所有情況都適宜用, 舉例如果這樣做有機會令原句的時式變得含糊, 就最好避免使用。

    在 "The money placed on the table was mine." 的句子中, 如果唔係俾個"on the table" 的 phrase 隔開, was 亦都係一樣直接跟在 placed (past particple) 的後面。

    情況就好似這句:

    All the people injured were rushed to the hospital. 所有傷者已被送院。

    (were 咩直接跟在 injured 後面!)

    原句可以係: All the people (who had been) injured were rushed to the hospital.
