- adverbe de frecventa indefinita: (just, recently, already)

Ex: I have just met her.

yet - se aseaza doar pe finalul propozitiei si numai in propozitii interogative si negative. In interogative are sensul de "deja":

Ex: Have you met her yet? (daca ar trebui transpusa in propozitie afirmativa, "yet" ar deveni "already") => I have already met her.

In negativa are sensul de "inca":

Ex: I haven't met her yet.

for - timp de (arata durata actiunii, fara a preciza momentul de inceput si de final). In propozitie are pozitie aproape finala.

dupa "since" urmeaza intotdeauna trecut daca mai urmeaza o propozitie

Ex: I haven't met her since I came. (este o actiune mai trecuta decat cea cu intalnirea)

Ex: A nins = It has snowed (nu stiu cand)


A nins acum o ora = It snowed an hour ago.

Interogativul - avand in constructie auxiliarul "to be", se obtine prin inversia acestuia cu subiectul

Ex: Has it snowed?

Negativul - prin adaugarea negatiei "not" la auxiliarul "have"

Ex: It hasn't snowed.


- corespunde in romana prezentului

to live

to study nu se poate folosi forma continua decat daca precizez anumite conditii

Ex: NU ! - I have been working all my life. (verb existential = pleonasm)

DA - I have been working in this company all my life.

daca precizez de cate ori s-a desfasurat o actiune, nu mai pot folosi forma continua, pentru ca practic se fragmenteaza actiunea.

Ex: Citesc cartea asta de cand am venit (nu stiu de cate ori)

I have been reading this book since I came.


Am citit cartea asta de 2 ori de cand am venit.

I have read this book twice since I came. (am inceput, am terminat, iar am inceput, etc.)

Este un timp sintetic care nu poate sa apara in propozitia principala, ci in secundara atunci cand in propozitia principala am un verb la timpul trecut si vreau sa sugerez o actiune ulterioara acelui moment trecut.

Ex: I-am spus ca ma voi duce la film.

In principala - conditional viitor (shall / will + V inf scurt)

In secundara - prezent simplu (daca depinde de un program)

Ex: I shall come if the plane lands on time.

- prezent continuu (daca actiunea depinde de mine)

Ex: I shall come if I am desiring this.

- prezent perfect (daca actiunea este anterioara)

Ex: I shall come if I have done my homework.

Acest conditional corespunde regulii de la viitor (viitor in principala - prezent in secundara), diferenta constand in faptul ca am conjunctia "if".

2) prezent (actiune ireala, dar posibil de realizat in prezent sau viitor)

In principala - conditional prezent (should / would + V inf scurt)

In secundara - subjonctiv trecut / trecut simplu

(diferenta subj - trecut este ca "to be" are la subj. forma identica were) Ex: As veni daca as avea timp.

I should come if I had time.

Daca as fi in locul tau as citi cartea.

If I were you I should read the book.

3) trecut (actiune ireala si imposibil de realizat, tine de un moment trecut)

In principala - conditional perfect (should / would + have + V III)

In secundara - subjonctiv trecut perfect / trecut perfect

Ex: M-as fi dus acolo daca as fi stiut adresa.

I should have gone there if I had known the address.

"if" poate fi omis pentru cazurile 2 si 3. Omisiunea se face prin aducerea propozitiei secundare in fata si inversia subiectului cu predicatul.

Pentru conditionalul 2:

I should go there if I had time.


Had I time should I go there.

Pentru conditionalul 3:

I should have gone there if I had known the address.


Had I known the address I should have gone there.

daca in conditionalul 2 nu am un verb auxiliar sau modal care sa poata face inversia cu subiectul, ma voi folosi de "should".

Ex: I should go there if I knew the address.


Should I know the address, I should go there.

(este singura data cand avem 2 de "should")

If poate fi inlocuit prin alte expresii ca:


but for

in case

so long as

providing that

provided that

supposing that

suppose that

unless (=daca nu) - se foloseste pt propozitii negative

Ex: I shouldn't go there if I didn't know the address.

I shouldn't go there unless I knew the address.

but for - se foloseste atunci cand in propozitia secundara am verbul "to be" cu valoare de predicat verbal la sensul negativ (il y a). But for nu se poate folosi decat pentru conditionalul 2 si 3.

Ex condit. 2: I should go for a walk if it weren't for the rain.

pred verbal neg

But for the rain, I should go for a walk.

Ex condit. 3: I should have invited them if it hadn't been their choice.

pred verbal neg

But for their chioce, I should have invited them.

in case - se foloseste numai cu conditional viitor

Ex: I shall return if I find the ticket.

In case I find the ticket I shall return.

so / as long as - se foloseste cand sugerez ideea de restrictionare

Ex: I shall give you the book if you take care of it.

So /as long as you take care of the book, I shall give it to you.

providing that / provided that - tot pentru restrictie

supposing that / suppose that - (presupunand ca)
