關於being的用法

關於以下句子的being:

Despite the duration of the work experience being quite short, employers would still probably choose a fresh graduate with such experience over one without it.

想問以上為何會用being在quite short 前

而不是Despite the duration of the work experience is quite short, employers would still probably choose a fresh graduate with such experience over one without it.

更新:

想問:

People think that he is being rude.

能不能改成

People think that he ia rude.

兩者有何分別?

    關於以下句子的being:

    Despite the duration of the work experience being quite short, employers would still probably choose a fresh graduate with such experience over one without it.

    "Despite" is a preposition, which has to be followed by a noun or noun phrase as its object.

    Therefore, "Despite the duration of the work experience is quite short," is not grammatical as a finite verb "is" appears in the prepositional phrase.

    "being", the present participle (non-finite verb / verbal) of "be" (linking verb), is used to link up the noun phrase "the duration of the work experience" with the predicative adjective "short". In other word, "being quite short" is a participle phrase (adjectival) modifying the noun phrase.

    He is rude.

    It is a description or opinion relating to his character in general.

    He is being rude.

    It tells an opinion about his manner in some defined occasion, or at present moment.

    That said, a polite (character) man can be rude sometimes.

    Correct preposition: "on" some occasion (not "in" ....)

  • Being o係句子裏面擔當「主動詞」o既角色,負責承載「處於什麼什麼狀態」的語意。

    不同於現在式和過去式(都是 simple aspect),「is」、「was」、「am」、「are」、「were」等等在進行式的動詞結構裏,只是助動詞(即幫助主動詞完成文法結構〔be + V-ing〕的動詞)。

    用「being」因為「being」係「be」o既現在分詞,即係 be 加 -ing,按照進行式o既結構要求,要o係「was」呀、「am 呀」呢o的助動詞後面加返一個加o左 -ing o既「主動詞」。

    記住,「being」在句子裏是「主動詞」,不可答「分詞」。

    因為它是「be」這個「動詞」的現在分詞,絕不是句子的分詞。

    (1) 作為be的現在分詞,例如:

    Being busy, I can't watch TV now.

    我現在很忙,無暇看電視。

    (2) 作為be的動名詞,例如:

    Being with you makes me happy.

    和你一起令我愉快。

    (3) 構成被動進行式,例如:

    The house is being built.

    該大屋正在建造中。

    (4) 作為名詞,表示「存在」或「生命」,例如:

    That was his reason for being.

    那就是他生存的理由。

    (5) 表示「人」或「物」,例如:

    A human being should do good deeds.

    人應該

    2014-11-23 20:32:57 補充:

    應該做好事。

    (6) 表示「肉體和精神之結合」,例如:

    She responded to the music with her whole being.

    她身心都陶醉在音樂之中。

    (陸谷孫《英漢大詞典》)

    (7) 用於慣用語,例如for the time being:

    He is staying with his uncle for the time being.

    他暫時住在叔父家。

    另外

    is be, is to be,will be 和is being 用法區別

    is be,這種形式不正確,因為is是be動詞,後面不能再加動詞原形be;

    is to be,表示“已經確定,確信,確認“之意。例:The boy is to come here.男孩確定要過來。

    will be ,是一般將來時,後面加名詞,代詞等可以做表語的成分。例:She will be here tomorrow.她明天在

    這裏。

    is being ,可以看做是現在進行時的被動語態的構成形式。例:He is being hit b

    2014-11-23 20:35:08 補充:

    is being ,可以看做是現在進行時的被動語態的構成形式。例:He is being hit by Father.

    主動句是:Father is hitting him.

    Never use “despite” to introduce a clause. Instead use “despite” with a present participle (verb + ing).

    “Be” can have many forms depending on its subject and on its tense.

    Present tense: ~ am, is, are

    Past tense :~ was, were.

    Past participle :~ been

    Present participle:~ being

    “the duration of the work experience is quite short” 是一個 clause .

    如果這麼寫兩個 clauses 無 conjunction 或 semi-colon, 是 run-on sentence.

    用 though (conjunction) 代替 despite (prep)

    或者 restructure 過, 仍舊用 Despite

    Despite the fact that the duration of the work experience is quite short, employers would still probably choose a fresh graduate with such experience over one without it.

    2014-11-15 02:51:45 補充:

    Other example: (using “being”)

    I am younger than my two brothers. I always had to wear their old clothes. (~ two separate sentences)

    Being younger than my two brothers, I always had to wear their old clothes. (~ one sentence, using present participial phrase)
