1 We use the present perfect progressive in place of the simple present perfect when we want to emphasize that something has been in progress throughout a period: Instead of saying: I've typed all day, we can say, for emphasis, I've been typing all day. Depending on context, this may mean I'm still typing or I've just recently stopped. 2 Some verbs like learn, lie, live, rain, sit, sleep, stand, study, wait, work, naturally suggest continuity and we often use them with since and for We can use them in the present perfect tense: I've waited here for two hours. I've worked here since 1987. But we most often use them in the progressive: I've been waiting here for two hours. I've been working here since 1987. 1b 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Supply the present perfect progressive tense of the verbs in brackets. I'm tired. I ....have been digging... all day. (dig) How long .. here? (you wait) I .. here since 6 o'clock, (stand) How long .. Chinese? (you learn) She .. English for five years, (study) You're out of breath. .. ? (you run) We .. here for twelve years, (live) Your eyes are red. .. ? (you cry) How long ..? (the children sleep) What .. all afternoon? (you do)

for / since w Past Simple, Present Perfect i Present Perfect Continuous


Since and for We use both since and for to say how long something has been happening: I've been waiting for you since 8 o'clock. I've been waiting for you for two hours. We use since when we say the beginning of the period (8 o'clock). We use for when we say the period of time (two hours). since 1977 Christmas lunchtime we arrived for a week five years a long time ages

Uycie wish / if only wyraanie alw / ycze (nierealna teraniejszo / przeszo) After (I) wish, if only, it's (high) time and it's (about) time, we 'go one tense back': The past tense refers to the present: I wish I had a better watch!

1 We often use I wish for things that might (still) happen: I wish I knew the answer! (= it's possible I might find out the answer) If only is stronger. We use it to express regret for things that can (now) never happen: If only your mother were alive now! (Of course, I wish is also possible.) 2 We may use the simple past of be after wish and if only, especially in everyday speech: I wish I was on holiday now. If only Tessa was here now! 3 If we want to be more formal, we use were in all persons: I wish I were on holiday now. If only Tessa were here! 4 We may use the past perfect of be for things that can never happen: I wish I had been on holiday last week. If only Tessa had been here yesterday! 5 We use the past or past perfect forms of other verbs: I wish I knew the answer to your question. I wish I had known then what I know now!

Would' and 'could' after 'I wish' and 'if only'

He asked (me) if/whether I was ready. A reported tag question also changes to statement word order: 'You're ready, aren't you?'

10. MODAL VERBS


Czasowniki Modalne

1 Verbs like can and may are modal auxiliaries. We often refer to them as modal verbs or just modals. We use them with other verbs for example, to ask for permission: Can I use your phone, please? May I borrow your car, please? There are ten modals: can, could, may, might, will, would, shall, should, must, ought to and three 'semimodals': need, dare and used to. 2 In their first use, modal verbs have basic meanings which are given in dictionaries: - can/could (= ability, permission, possibility): I can lift 25 kg./I can type. Can I speak to you for a moment? A coin can land on either side. - may/might (= permission, possibility): You may leave early. It may rain. - will/would (= prediction): It will rain soon. Will we find our way? - shall after I / We (= prediction): I'm sure we shall win the match. - should/ought to (= duty, advice): You should do as you're told. You should smoke - must (= total obligation): less. - needn't (= no obligation): You must be quiet. You needn't wait.

10 a What do these sentences express? Match A and B. A B 1 I can type twenty-five words a minute. _c_ a) prediction 2 You should do as you're told. ____ b) permission 3 You needn't wait. ____ c) ability 4 It will rain soon. ____ d) no obligation 5 You may leave now if you want to. ____ e) total obligation 6 You must be quiet. ____ f) duty

We can use can (or sometimes am/is/are able to) to describe natural or learned ability: I can (I am able to) run 1500 metres in 5 minutes. (natural ability) I can't (I am not able to/I am unable to) drive. (learned ability) 10 b Supply can, can't, could, couldn't, was/were able to, managed to. Alternatives are possible. 1 A good 1500-metre runner .can.. run the race in under four minutes. 2 Bill is so unfit he run at all! 3 Our baby is only nine months and he already stand up. 4 When I was younger, I speak Italian much better than I now. 5 she speak German very well? - No, she speak German at all. 6 He draw or paint at all when he was a boy, but now he's a famous artist. 7 After weeks of training, I swim a length of the baths underwater. 8 It took a long time, but in the end Tony save enough to buy his own hi-fi. 9 Did you buy any fresh fish in the market? - No, I get any. 10 For days the rescuers looked for the lost climbers in the snow. On the fourth day they saw them and reach them without too much trouble. The first use of modal verbs 1 Modal verbs are not 'complete verbs'. For example, we use verbs like must and can to refer only to the present or the future: I must go to the bank now. I must go to the bank tomorrow. This means we have to make up the 'missing parts' of must with have to. So if we want to express the past of must, we say: I had to go to the bank yesterday. In the same way, we use be able to to make up the 'missing parts' of can 2 Other important points about modal verbs: a) We can't use them as to-infinitives: / want to be able to type very fast. (Not *to can") b) We do not use the to-infinitive after modals: You must/mustn't phone. (Not *to phone") c) There's no -(e)s in the 3rd person singular: The boss can see you now. (No -s on can) 10 c Use suitable forms of have to only when it is impossible to use must. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 You take a taxi if you intend to catch the next train. Since the new boss took over, we change our working methods. We talk about this again tomorrow. If you bring up a large family, you wouldn't have had so much money to spend. I was late for work this morning because I go to the bank first. I (not) speak French since I was at school. I hate wait for people who don't know how to keep appointments. He get up early tomorrow morning if he wants to see the sunrise.

The second use of modal verbs 1 The second way we use modals is to express degrees of certainty or uncertainty. We use nine of the modals for this purpose (not shall), but we don't use them in a fixed order. We express the greatest uncertainty with might, the greatest certainty with must/can't He might be right. He might know the answer, (very uncertain) He could be right. He would know the answer, (fairly certain) He must be right. He must know the answer, (almost certain) He can't be right. He can't know the answer, (almost certain) We use be or an ordinary verb, not a modal, for 'absolute certainty' You are right. You know the answer, (certain) 2 In their second use, modals have only two forms: - present form: He must be right. He must know the answer, (now) - perfect or past form: He must have been right. He must have known the answer, (then) 10 d Put 'certain', 'almost certain', 'fairly certain' or 'very uncertain' beside these sentences. The phone's ringing. It's Roland. .....certain..... 1. The phone's ringing. It might be Roland. 2. A car is parking outside our house. That will be the Kennedys. 3. A car is parking outside our house. That must be the Kennedys. 4. From your description, the person you met would have been my cousin, Jeff 5. From your description, the person you met can't have been my cousin Jeff 6. If I have understood you correctly, Jeff should be my second cousin 7. Are you saying it mightn't be possible for me to get a visa to visit the USA? ..... 8. If he spent five years in America, he must speak English, I suppose Uses of modals (etc.) to express certainty and possibility 1 If we are certain of our facts, we use be or any full verb[> 11.1C]: Jane is at home. Jane works at home, (certain facts) 2 If we are referring to possibility, we use may, might or could + be/have been: Jane may/might/could be at home now. She may/might/could have been at home yesterday. Or we use may, might, could + full verb: Jane may/might/could work (or... may/might/could be working) at home. She may/might/could have worked (or... have been working) at home yesterday. 10 e Read these sentences and write C (= Certain) or P (= Possible) against each one. 1 My boss is away on holiday. _C_ 8 He could be swimming right now. 2 His wife may be with him. 9 He'll come back in a good mood. 3 She will be back next week. 10 He might leave this evening. 4 He could reply by the weekend. 11 They've been staying at a big hotel. 5 He wasn't here last week. 12 They may have been dancing all night. 6 She might have been to Paris. 13 He borrowed my ladder. 7 She's returned from Paris. 14 He could have borrowed my ladder. 10 f Turn these 'certain' statements into 'possible/less than certain' statements. 1 He is at home now. He may/might/could be at home now 2 He will be at home tomorrow 3 He was at home yesterday 4 She leaves at 9 5 She will leave tomorrow 6 She has left 7 She left last night 8 She will have left by 9 9 He is working today

10 g Write uncertain answers to these questions. 1 Where's Jim today? He may/might/could be at home. 2 Where was Jim yesterday? 3 Where will Jim be tomorrow? 4 What time does the train leave? 5 What time did the train leave last night? 6 What's Sue doing at the moment? 7 What was Sue doing yesterday? 9 What has Sue been doing this week? 10 What has John had for breakfast? 11 Where has Ann parked the car? 12 What did that car cost? Uses of modals to express deduction. 1 We express certainty with be or any full verb: He is here. He lives here. He is leaving. 2 We express deduction with must be/can't be, must have been, can't/couldn't have been: He must be at home. He can't be out. He must have been at home yesterday. or with verbs other than be: He must live abroad. He must have lived abroad. 10 h Read these sentences and write C (= Certainty) or D (= Deduction) against each one. 1 John Wright is a man of action. _C_ 2 He was in the Galapagos ten years ago. _____ 3 Now he lives in an enormous house. _____ 4 He is writing a book. _____ 5 He has been writing this book since he came back from the Galapagos. _____ 6 He must be writing about his travels. _____ 7 He must have seen the giant tortoises and the iguanas on the Galapagos. _____ 8 He can't have seen any elephants on the Galapagos. _____ 9 He can't have been working very hard on his book. _____ 10 He must have taken a lot of photos while he was on the islands. _____ 11 He must have done a lot of research for his book. _____ 12 He must enjoy life. _____ Two kinds of 'must be' 1 We use must be in the present to express deduction [> 11.1C]: You haven't eaten for hours. You must be hungry! 2 The negative of must be (= deduction) is can't be, not 'mustn't be*: You've only just eaten. You can't be hungry again! (Not 'mustn't be") 3 We can also use must (be) to express total obligation [> 11.1 A]: This is a hospital. You must be quiet. 4 The negative of must (be) (= total obligation) is mustn't (be) (= prohibition [> 11.3B]): You mustn't be noisy outside a hospital. 10 i Supply must be, can't be, or mustn't be. b Write D (= Deduction) or O (= Obligation) beside each sentence. 1 The meeting is at 10 o'clock sharp and you mustn't be late. __O__ 2 You at the station ten minutes before the departure of the train. 3 The children tired already! We've only been walking for ten minutes. 4 The children thirsty. They haven't had a drink for hours. 5 Did you hear that? It someone walking about in our garden.

'Must have been', 'can't/couldn't have been'; 'had to be/didn't have to be' 1 We express deduction about the past with must have been: You hadn't eaten for hours.

(Not *mustn't have been*) 3 Must(= total obligation) is not a 'complete verb' [> 11.1B]. We use had to in the past: The meeting was at 10 this morning and I had to be there.

12. LOOK/SOUND/FEEL + ADJECTIVE; LOOK/SOUND/FEEL AS IF (AS THOUGH)


A You can use as if to say how someone or something looks/sounds/feels, etc.: The house looked as if nobody was living in it. Ann sounds as if she's got a cold, doesn't she? I've just come back from vacation, but I feel tired and depressed. I don't feel as if I've had a vacation. Compare: You look tired, (look + adjective) You look as if you haven't slept, (look + as if + subject + verb) Tom sounded worried, (sound + adjective) Tom sounded as if he was worried, (sound + as if + subject + verb) You can use as though instead of as if: Ann sounds as though she's got a cold. B You can also say It looks/sounds/smells as if (or as though): Tom is very late, isn't he? It looks as if he isn't coming. We took an umbrella because it looked as if it was going to rain. Do you hear that music next door? It sounds as if they are having a party, doesn't it? It smells as though someone has been smoking in here. After It looks/sounds/smells, many people use like instead of as if / as though: It looks like Tom isn't coming. C You can also use as if with other verbs to say how someone does something: He ran as if he were running for his life. After the interruption, she continued talking as if nothing had happened. When I told them my plan, they looked at me as if I were insane. D After as if we sometimes use the past when we are talking about the present. For example: I don't like Norman. He talks as if he knew everything. The meaning is not past in this sentence. We use the past ("as if he knew") because the idea is not real: Norman does not know everything. We use the past in the same way in if sentences and after wish (see Unit 35). When we use the past in this way, we use were instead of was: Harry's only 50. Why do you talk about him as if he were (or was) an old man? They treat me as if I were (or was) their own son. (I'm not their son.)
