be动词的含义及用法 be的用法


be动词意思和用法很多,一般的意思是是,此种用法,有多种变化形式,is,am,are,was,were,bein-g,been,to be.另外,be动词还有成为的意思。


  be (be/is/are/am/was/were)   [bi:]   vi   现在时 I am, you are, he is, we are, you are, they are (缩略式 I'm, you're, he's, we're, you're, they're), (否定缩略式 I'm not, isn't, aren't), 过去时 I was, you were, he was, we were, you were, they were (过去时否定缩略式 wasn't, weren't), 过去分词 been, 现在分词 being   英语的“be”是个特殊动词;有些语言,如马来文等,并没有“be”这样的动词。   “Be”除了原形的“be”之外,还有另外七种形式:am, is, are, been, being, was, were.   在句子中,“be”可以是主动词(The Principal Verb)或助动词(The Auxiliary Verb)



作为系动词(也叫连系动词,link verb)的be,是英语学习者接触最早的用法,而且其用法也很多。其基本含义为“是”,基本用法结构为“主语+be+表语”,也就是我们常说的主系表结构,其中的表语一般都由名词、形容词、数词或表地点、时间等的短语来充当。




Heisa student.Theywerein the park yesterday.Itwill becloudy tomorrow.Hehas beenill for six days.Ithad beenthree hours before she left the hat shop.



Itmust beLucy's book. Her name is on the cover.Itcan bevery difficult for us to memorize too many words within such a short time.Sheshould behere on time tomorrow.





Heisreading in the library now. (现在进行时)Shewasswimming in the river this time yesterday. (过去进行时)Theywill bearriving in Beijing tomorrow. (将来进行时)Wehave beenlearning English for ten years. (现在完成进行时)


助动词be能够与主要动词的过去分词一起构成被动语态,即be done结构。如:

Chineseiswidely used around the world nowadays.The windowwasbroken by the naughty boy just now.Your watchhasalreadybeenrepaired.



1、be going to do

be going to do表示“打算或将要”。如:

Heisgoing to visit us next week.Itisgoing to rain soon.

2、be about to do

be about to do表示“刚要,即将”。与be going to do表“将要”不同的是,be about to do表示的是说完话后马上就要去做或是短期内马上就要去做。如:

The planeisabout to take off in five minutes' time.

3、be to do

be to do表示“按计划要做”。如:

One night an angel came to Mary and told her that shewasto have this special boy.The new storeisto be opened tomorrow.


(一)There be句型

与上面用法都不同的是,be可以与there一起构成there be句型,用来表示存在。考虑到There be句型较为重要,内容较多,在此不做赘述,后面再找时间跟大家单独分享。今天就先给几个常见的例句。

There isa white ruler on the desk.There werea great many people in the car race last year.


这种情况下,句子一般以Be开头或是Don't be开头,表示命令或建议等。如:

Bepatient! (耐心点!)Don't beso hard on me! (不要对我们这么严厉!)



Be he rich or poor, she will marry him.Be it true or not, she will see it herself.


Whether he be rich or poor, she will marry him. (无论他是否有钱,她都会嫁给她。)Whether it be true or not, she will see it herself. (无论这是否是真的,她都会亲自去见证。)

“Be”除了原形的“be”之外,还有另外七种形式:am, is, are, been, being, was, were.

在句子中,“be”可以是主动词(The Principal Verb)或助动词(The Auxiliary Verb).

当主动词时,“be”在性质上属于接系动词(The Linking Verb), 后面要有名词、形容词、地方副词或短语作补足语(The Complement)。例如:

1. The man is a science teacher.

2. Mary's new dresses are colourful.

3. I have been there before.

4. Mother is in the kitchen now.

6. Are Mary's new dresses colourful?

10. Do be obedient!

11. Don't be a fool!


12. He's not...../He isn't....

13. You're not...../You aren't...

但“am + not”的缩写法只有一个:

14. I'm not.

有人用“ain't”, 但这并不是标准英语。


1.“Be + 现在分词”以组成进行式时态(Continuous Tenses),如:

15. Tony's maid is washing his new car.

16. The children are playing in the field.

17. Samuel was eating when I came in.

18. We have been living here since 1959.

2.“Be + 过去分词”以组成被动语态(The Passive Voice),如:

19. Her money in the drawer was stolen.

20. A number of good jobs are taken up byforeigners.

21. David studied in Taiwan but has been trained as a language lecturer in America.

22. Can all the wonderful birds be found in our Bird Park?

23. The disobedient boy was told to stand out- side the classroom.

24. Steps are being taken to reduce traffic con- gestion during peak hours.

25. Dishonest students will be immediately dealt with.


be动词的一般现在时有三种形式,即:am, is, are。

1. 如果主语是第一人称I(我)时,be动词用am。

如:I am a student. 我是一名学生。

I am 还可缩写成I'm。如:

I'm David. 我是大卫。

2. 如果主语是you (你,你们), they (他们,它们,她们)或名词复数 (两个以上的人或物)时,be动词必须用are。

如:Are you twelve? 你是十二岁吗?

Tom and Lily are good friends. 汤姆和莉莉是好朋友。

They are at school. 他们在学校。

are与主语还可缩写。如: We are= We're, They are =They're, You are = You're。而are与 not可缩写成aren't。

如:They aren't students. 他们不是学生。但是am与not不能缩写。

3. 如果主语是单数名词、不可数名词或单数第三人称代词(he, she, it)时,be动词用is。

如:My mother is a teacher. 我的妈妈是一名老师。

He is a student. 他是一名学生。

is也可与主语缩写,如: He is = He's, My mother is = My mother's等。但是This is不可缩写。而is与not可缩写成 isn't。

如:This isn't a book. 这不是一本书。




剩下is留给她(she), 他(he), 它(it),




①am, is, are, was, were

②助动词+be:shall be, will be, can be, etc.

③have/has/had + been(完成时)

④am, is, …being(进行时)



句型 be + V-ing…(进行时态)

例:What are you reading?


I am reading a magazine.


例:He will be taking a walk in the park at this time tomorrow morning.


例:She has been teaching English in our school for years.


解说 第一例句是表达现在进行时,第二例句是将来进行时,第三例句是现在完成进行时。


句型 be +p.p. …(被动语态)

例:English is spoken in both Canada and the United States.


例:Those keys were found in your drawer.
