英文i am glad you come to see us

forgive for my ignorance

i wanna ask whether it had a grammatical problem "i am glad you come to see us"

why this sentence could contain two verbs

or it's because "am" was not exactly a verb

or it should change to "i am glad you came to see us "

    其實這句是省略了 that 這個字,你可把這句看成:

    I am glad (that) you come to see us.

    主句是 I am glad,至於 you come to see us 只是一個 phrase。

    而規則是:

    即使「整句句子」有多於一個 verb ,但如果「主句」只有一個 verb 的話,文法依然正確。

    you come to see us 這個 phrase 實際上並不屬於主句的一部分,它只是用來增潤主句的意思,文法上可有可無,對主句的結構沒有影響。

    因此,主句的動詞依然只有一個,即 am,所以文法並沒有錯。

    希望幫到你。

    很多時候,句子中的 that 都會被省略,所以只要把 that 加回就可以理解了。

    “you come to see us” 不是 phrase, 是 clause, 因有 finite verb “come”

    在原句, 屬于 complement clause, complement to the adjective “glad”.

    I am glad you come to see us = I am glad that you come to see us.

    (that) you come to see us. = this part is a clause in this complex sentence telling you why I am glad.

    That is the conjunction in the said sentence to join two sentences into one complex sentence and can be taken out.

    Verb = 勭詞 normally consists action

    Verb to be=也是動詞相等於中文的( 是)

    ---With the omission of "that", you can treat the sentence as putting back"that".

    eg:-I am glad that you came (past tense) to see me.

    The treating SVO :-

    eg:-I = S

    am glad = V

    ------------=O as complement adj cl=that you came to see me.

    The passive usage in this non-defining relative clause:-

    eg:-ND = S

    (,)that come to see us (,) = adj cl as non-def. ND

    made me glad. = V

    The usage of that cannot be omitted "that":-

    That may be used to replace who, whom and which. But don't allow a preposition appear before THAT in an adjective clause to become in that --on that--etc.which might relate wrongly. Hence "that" is used in non-defining clause(adj cl.) here , just to add something .Hence "I am glad that you come to see us."
