英语主谓一致重点知识归纳

主谓一致的三个原则 1.

语法一致原则该原则要求谓语动词必须与主语在语法形式 上保持一致,即主语是单数形式,动词用单数形式,主语是 复数形式,动词用复数形式:Both my parents are doctors. 我的父母都是医生。 The living-room walls are a light yellow. 客厅的墙是淡黄色。The two factories are in the same locality. 两家工厂都在同一个地区。Her job is teaching French. 她的工作是教法语。The location of the house is near the highway. 房子的地点靠近公路。A large amount of damage was done in a short time. 短期内造成大量损害。 2. 意义一致原则有时候谓语动词的数取决于主语所表示的概 念,而不是其语法形式:This news is important for us. 这 条消息对我们很重要。Paris is among the largest cities in the would. 巴黎是世界上最大的城市之一。The thesis was about a hundred and fifty pages long. 论文有一百五十页长。 Watch out! The police are coming. 当心,警察来了。Less people are going to university than usual. 现在上大学的人 比平时少。 3. 就近原则有时,谓语动词的数决定于主语中 最靠近它的词语:Either you or I am wrong. 不是你错了就 是我错了。 Neither the students nor the teacher is interested

in it. 老师和学生对此都不感兴趣。

集合名词做主语的主谓一致问题 1. 通常用作复数的集合名 词 police(警察),people(人),cattle(牛,牲口)等集合名词, 总是表示复数意义,用作主语时,其谓语要用复数:The police were after him. 警察正在追捕他。People are beginning to talk about her. 人们开始议论她。Cattle feed on grass. 牛吃草。 【注】goods(货物), clothes(衣服)只有复 数形式,且只表示复数意义:Such clothes are very cheap. 那样的衣服很便宜。All the goods have been sent to them. 所有的货物都给他们送去了。 2. 只用作单数的不可数集合 名词 clothing(衣服), poetry(诗歌), baggage / luggage(行李), furniture(家具),machinery(机械),scenery(景色), jewellery(珠宝),equipment(设备)等集合名词通常只用作不 可数名词,表示单数意义,用作主语时,其后谓语动词用单 数形式:Our clothing protects us from against the cold. 我 们的衣服可以御寒。 All their baggage was stolen. 他们所有 的行李都被偷了。 The furniture is convenient to move. 这家 具搬起来很方便。 All the machinery in the factory is made in China. 这个工厂所有的机器都是中国产的。

3. 既可表示单数意义也可表示复数意义的集合名词

family(家庭), team(队, 队员), class(班, 班上的全体学生), crowd(人群),government(政府),crew(乘务员), committee(委员会),audience(听众),public(公众)等集合名 词,当它们表示整体意义时,表单数意义,当它们强调个体 意义时,表示复数意义: Her family is a large one. 她的家 庭是一个大家庭。 Her family are all tall. 她的一家人都很高。 The team is the best in the league. 这个队在联赛中打得最 好。The football team are having baths. 足球队队员们在洗 澡。It was late, but the audience was increasing. 时间很迟 了,但听众人数却在增加。The audience were all moved to tears. 听众都感动得流了泪。 【注】有时没有特定的语境, 用单复数谓语均可以:The audience was (were) very excited by the show. 观众对演出甚感激动。The public has (have) a right to know what’s in the report. 公众有权知道这 篇报告的内容。

并列结构作主语时谓语动词的数 1. 由 and 和 both...and 连 接的并列主语此时谓语动词通常用复数。如:Jim and Mary are both interested in it. 吉姆和玛丽都对此感兴趣。Both brother and sister are college students. 兄妹俩都是大学生。 【注意】(1) 当由 and 连接的两个并列主语受 each, every, no 的修饰时,谓语用单数:Every boy and (every) girl likes

the book. 每个男孩女孩都喜欢这本书。No desk and (no) chair was seen in the room. 房间里不见桌椅。(2) 当 and 连接两个数相加时, 谓语动词可用单数或复数: Six and eight makes [make] fourteen. 六加八等于十四。(3) 当 and 连接 的两个的词语指同一个人或事物时,谓语通常要用单数:A cart and horse was seen in the distance. 远处看见一辆马 车。 2. 由 or, nor, either...or, neither…nor, not only…but also, not…but 等连接的并列主语此时谓语动词通常与最靠近的主 语保持一致(即遵循就近原则)。如:He or I am wrong. 不是 他错了,就是我错了。Either you or he has taken it. 不是你 拿了就是他拿了。Not only the children but also the mother wants to go. 不仅孩子们想去,母亲也想去。注意这类句型 的疑问句形式: Were you or he there? 当时是你还是他在那 儿?Are either you or he to blame? 是怪你还是怪他? 【注意】 在非正式文体中, 个别结构(如 neither…nor)连接主语时, 谓 语可用复数:Neither his father nor his mother have [has] come. 他的爸爸和妈妈都没来。 3. 由 as well as, as much as, rather than , more than, no less than 等连接的并连主 语此时谓语动词通常与前面一个主语保持一致。如:The teacher as well as the students has read it 不仅学生读过它, 老师也读过。The teacher rather than the students is to

blame. 应受责备的是老师而不是学生。

数量概念作主语时谓语动词的数 1. 表时间长度、钱数、速 度等的词组作主语此时通常将其视为整体, 谓语用单数。 如: Twenty years is a long time. 20 年是很长的时间。Ten dollars is all I have left. 我只剩下 10 美元。2. 分数(百分数) 作主语“分数(百分数)+of+名词”结构作主语时, 谓语动词的数 与其中名词的数保持一致。如:About 30 percent of the pupils were absent that day. 那天大约有 30%的学生未到。 Three-fourths of the surface of the earth is covered by sea. 地球表面的四分之三是海。 【注意】在现代英语中,有时即 使该结构中的名词为复数, 其谓语也可用单数(即将其视为整 体):Over sixty per cent of families own [owns] a television. 百分之六十以上的家庭已拥有电视机。 3.“one in [out of]+ 复数名词”作主语此时谓语动词通常用单数。如:Only one in ten students has passed the examination. 只有十分之一的 学生通过了考试。One out of twelve bottles was broken. 每 12 个瓶子中有一个破了。 【注意】在非正式文体中有时也用 复数谓语。如:Nationwide, one in five adults are illiterate. 就全国范围而言,五个成年人中有一个是文盲。 4.“all of (some of, none of, half of, most of, lots of, plenty of)+名词” 作主语此时谓语动词的数与其中名词的数保持一致。如:

5.“one and a half+复数名词”与“a+单数名词+and a half” 作主语此时国内不少书认为,这两个结构作主语,谓语均用 单数。如:One and a half months has passed. / A month and a half has passed. 已经过去了一个半月。但是,国外 一些词书则认为,谓语动词的数取决于这两个结构中名词的 数:One and a half months have passed. / A month and a half has passed. 已经过去了一个半月。 6.“the [a] number of+名词”作主语该结构若用定冠词,其后谓语用单数;若用 不定冠词, 其后谓语用复数: The number of students is 4000. 学生人数为 4000。A number of people were absent from the meeting. 许多人开会缺席。注意类似结构:The variety of goods in this shop is rich. 这家商店的品种丰富。A variety of books have been published. 已出版了各种各样 的书。.

不定代词作主语时的主谓一致问题 1. someone, anyone 等

作主语时 someone, anyone, no one, everyone, something, nothing 等复合不定代词作主语, 谓语动词用单数: Someone is asking to see you. 有人找你。Nobody is to blame for it. 这谁也不怨。No one wants to read such books. 没有人想 看那样的书。 2. all 作主语时若指人,谓语通常用复数;若 指事物或现象,谓语通常用单数:All have gone home. 大 家都走了。All that glitters is not gold. 发亮的不一定都是金 子。比较:All is silent. 万籁俱寂。(指现象)All are silent. 人 人都沉默不语。(指具体的人)【注意】若是“all of+名词”作主 语,则谓语动词与其中名词的数保持一致。 3. either 和 neither 作主语时若是单独作主语, 谓语通常用单数: Neither was satisfactory. 两个都不令人满意。The two guests have arrived, and either is welcome. 两位客人都到了,哪一位都 受欢迎。 【注意】若是“either [neither] of+名词”作主语,则其 后的谓语动词可用单数(正式文体)或复数(非正式文体): Neither of the two computers is [are] cheap. 这两台电脑都 不便宜。Is [Are] either of the boys ready? 两个男孩都准备 好了吗?I don’t think either of them is [are] at home. 我想 他们俩个都会不在家。

4. each 作主语或修饰主语时单独用作主语(或修饰主语), 谓语用单数:Each student has his own desk. 每个学生都有

自己的课桌。Two boys entered. Each was carrying a suitcase. 两个男孩进来, 每人提着一只箱子。 【注意】 (1) 两 个或多个“each+单数名词”结构并列作主语时, 谓语用单数。 (2) “each of+复数名词或代词”用作主语, 谓语一般要用单 数 Each of them was deeply frightened. 他们个个都惊恐万 分。 但是在非正式文体中(尤其是当 each of 之后的名词较长 时)偶尔也可用复数谓语,但很少见,学生宜慎用。 5. none (of) 作主语时若指不可数名词,谓语用单数;若指复数可数 名词, 谓语可用单数(正式文体)或复数(非正式文体): None of the money is mine. 这笔钱没有一点是我的。None of the boys like [likes] it. 这些男孩子谁也不喜欢它。 6. 关于“one of+复数名词+定语从句”在这一结构中, 定语从句的谓语用复 数取决于先行词是 one 还是其后的复数名词。一般说来,在 这类结构中, 复数名词通常被认为是先行词(即定语从句谓语 用复数),除非 one of 前有 the (only) 修饰(此时定语从句的 谓语用单数): He is one of the people who were killed in the accident. 他是事故中丧命的人之一。He is the only one of the people who was killed in the accident. 他是事故中惟一 丧命的人。

单复数同形的名词作主语 有的名词单数与复形同形,如

means(方法), sheep(绵羊), fish(鱼), series(系列), works(工 厂)等,当它们用作主语时,其谓语的数需根据这些名词的实 际意义来确定(到底表示单数还是复数),此时要特别注意其 修饰语和上下文语境。如:Every possible means has been tried. 每种可能的办法都试过了。All possible means have been tried. 所有可能的办法都试过了。注:若没有特定的修 饰语或语境,则用单数或复数谓语均可。如:Are [Is] there any other means of doing it? 做这事还有其他的什么办法 吗?

many a 与 more than one 作主语时谓语的数 many a 的意 思是“许多”, more than one 的意思是“不止一个”, 从意义上, 它们表示复数,但用作主语时,谓语却习惯上用单数。如: ■ many a Many a fine man has died in that battle. 许多优

秀的士兵死于那次战役。Many a ship has been wrecked on those rocks. 许多船只毁于那些礁石之上。Many a young man has tried and failed. 很多年轻人都试过,而且失败了。 Many a successful store has paid its rent cheerfully. 许多 成功的店铺都非常乐意地付了房租。■ more than oneMore than one man has been dismissed. 不止一人被解雇了。 More than one person is involved in this. 与此事有牵连的 人不止一个。If things don’t get better, more than one person is going to have to find a new job. 如果情况没有好 转,需要另谋新工作的就不是个别人了。比较:Many a boy likes swimming.=Many boys like swimming. 许多男孩子喜 欢游泳。More than one student has read the book.=More students than one have read the book. 不止一个学生读过 这书。

非谓语动词作主语时的主谓一致 非谓语动词(主要指不定式 或动名词)作主语时,谓语动词通常用单数。如:1. 动名词 作主语 Having to change trains is a small inconvenience. 换乘火车多少有些不便。Being deaf and dumb makes communication very difficult. 又聋又哑很难与人交往。 Watching the event on television was a poor substitute for actually being there. 从电视上观看那个比赛比现场观看可 差远了。Reading by artificial light is bad for the eyes. 阅读 时使用人工照明会损害眼睛。Writing a dictionary is a long and difficult business but we’re getting there. 编写词典是 费时费事的工作, 但我们一定能成功。Writing a book was a more difficult job than he’d thought. 写书这工作可比他原来 想像的难得多。2. 不定式作主语 To say you were ignorant

needs is (are) friends. 她需要的是朋友。

“主语+介词短语”作主语时的主谓一致 按英语习惯,介词短 语通常不用作主语,所以当主语后跟有一个介词短语时,其 后谓语动词的数只与介词短语前面的主语保持一致,而与介 词短语无关。如:A woman with two children has come. 一 位妇女带着两个孩子已经来了。Everybody but you knows what was happening. 除了你以外, 人人都知道出了什么事。 The teacher, together with some of his pupils, was cleaning the room. 教师和他的一些学生一起在打扫教室。 以下两例中的 as well as 也可视为介词,其后谓语与 as well as 前面的主语保持一致:The students as well as the teacher were present at the meeting. 学生和他们的老师出 席了会议。I as well as they am ready to help you. 不仅他 们愿意帮助你,我也愿意帮助你。
