- когда существительное служит в предложении именной частью составного
сказуемого и используется, чтобы описать, кем или чем является лицо или
предмет, о котором говорится в предложении:

That’s an instrument for measuring distance.
- когда существительное служит приложением:

может, в свою очередь, иметь определение, выраженное существительным,
прилагательным или причастием. В таких случаях необходимо внимательно
прочитать и проанализировать выражение, чтобы разбить его на составляющие
части. Чаще всего помогает прием чтения от ключевого слова к началу цепочки

Глава 2. Словообразование.
В английском языке различают два способа образования слов:
- словопроизводство, т.е. образование одного слова из другого,
- словосложение, т.е. образование одного слова путем соединения двух слов.
Слова, образованные словосложением, встречаются в английском языке довольно
часто (newspaper, schoolboy, steamship, father-in-law, red-hot, to broadcast и т.д.),
однако в целом при их переводе и употреблении не встречается столько
трудностей, как при употреблении слов, образованных способом
словопроизводства. Поэтому далее будет рассматриваться в основном

2.1. Совпадение разных частей речи по форме.

Такое совпадение форм особенно часто случается у существительных и глаголов,


Существительные Глаголы
answer to answer
class to class
measure to measure
purchase to purchase

Иногда при совпадении формы существительные имеют ударение на первом

слоге, а соответствующие им глаголы на втором:

increase to increase
export to export
import to import

Совпадение форм встречается также у прилагательных и глаголов, например:

Прилагательные Глаголы
clean to clean
empty to empty
free to free
В некоторых случаях совпадение форм встречается у нескольких частей речи,
например, слово light может быть существительным, прилагательным и глаголом.

Глава 4. Предлог.
Так как в современном английском языке падежные окончания почти
полностью отсутствуют, то предлоги играют важную роль, являясь одним из
главных средств выражения отношения существительного (или местоимения) к
другим словам в предложении. Предлоги выражают пространственные,
временные, причинные и др. отношения. Многие предлоги имеют несколько
значений: at the table, at 5 o’clock, to laugh at smb.
Некоторые глаголы могут употребляться с различными предлогами, меняя свое
значение в зависимости от предлога: to look at smb. – смотреть на кого-то; to
look for smb. – искать кого-то; to look after smb.- присматривать за кем-то.
Предлоги также входят в состав большого числа словосочетаний и выражений.
Некоторые глаголы в английском языке требуют после себя предлога, в то время
как после соответствующих им русских глаголов предлог не употребляется: to
wait for smb.- ждать кого-то; to listen to smb.- слушать кого-то. С другой
стороны, в английском языке есть ряд глаголов, которые не требуют после себя
предлога, тогда как соответствующие им русские глаголы употребляются с
предлогами: to follow smb. - следовать за кем-то; to enter smth.- входить в.
Предлоги бывают простые (of, for, on), сложные (below, between), составные (in
front of, out of).
Предлоги обычно ставятся перед существительными, к которым они относятся,
однако в ряде случаев могут стоять после них, а также в конце предложения:
This is a picture on the wall.
What street do you live in?
This novel is much spoken about.
Следует также отличать случаи так называемого несвободного, фиксированного
употребления предлогов в том или ином сочетании слов: on duty, on foot; а
также широкое употребление послелогов, то есть предлогов, обязательных для
ряда глаголов и стоящих после них: (to laugh at, to listen to и т.д.)
Можно выделить три относительно большие группы предлогов: предлоги
времени, предлоги места, предлоги направления.

4.1.Предлоги времени.

Miles Kington
Could I say to the vet, “Here is my cat, please have her sent up?”
Learning English as a Second Language
Part 597: Dealing with political pollsters.
Please help me. What do I say if I stopped in the street by a man asking questions
about elections? This was happening to me all the time during the general election.
You say: ”Put me down as a Don’t Know”.
Put me down as a Don’t Know, I see. What exactly does that mean?
It means you don’t want any more questions.
I see. What does “put me down” mean?
It means, write me down on paper.
But in lesson 413, you told me that “put down” means to make a lot of fun of. Your
sentence was “Every comedian thinks it is funny to put down Val Doonican.”
Yes, well, it means that as well.
So maybe the man asking the questions will make fun of me?
No, no.
And in lesson 512, you said that “put down” also means to have your favourite
animal killed. Your sentence was: “We are taking our cat to the vet for him to be put
Did I? Well, yes, it means that too.
So I am afraid that the man asking the political questions will have me painlessly
killed when I say “Put me down as a Don’t Know.”
No, no, he won’t do that, I promise.
If “put down” means to make fun of, suppose “put up” means to take seriously.
No, no. It means to accommodate for a few days. Here is another sentence for you:
“My mother has written to say she is coming to stay with us, so we will have to put
her up for the weekend.”
That is a bit like a sentence I remember from lesson 87. “I do my best to put up with
your mother.”
Ah, yes, that’s put up with.
What does “put down with” mean?
Could I say “Set me down as a Don’t Know”?
No. “Set down” means to let someone off a train at a railway station.
And “set up” means to let them on the train at the railway station?
Mmm, not exactly. Actually, it means something the police do when all else fails.
Here is another sentence for you. “I spent three years in jail because the police set me
up for the Croydon job”.
Would they do that?
Not if you’d really done the Croydon job. “Set up,” by the way, also means to give
someone lots of money. For example, my parents set me up as a teacher of English as
a second language.
But the police would not give you lots of money for the Croydon job?
No, I think not.
Would it be possible to say to this man in the street: “Sent me down as a Don’t
Well, not really, “Send down” means to put someone in prison.
Oh, I see. The police set you up first and then they send you down.
Yes. Well, not quite. The police set you up, but the judges send you down.
This is all done to make more jobs?
Yes, I think so.
Well, if “send down” means to put you in prison, does “send up” mean get someone
out of prison?
Not exactly. In fact, not at all. “Send up” means to make a lot of fun of.
Ah, just like “put down”. So the sentence from lesson 413 could also be: “Every
comedian thinks it is funny to send up Val Doonican”?
Very good, absolutely right. Spot on.
And I could also say to the man in the street: “Send me up as a Don’t Know.”
And I could say to the vet: ”Here is my cat - please have her sent up”?
English is very difficult to learn as a second language.
Believe me, English is very difficult to teach as a second language. It gets me down
Get down? You mean, as in the phrase: “Get down and boogie”?
Where did you learn to speak like that?
In a disco in the West End, where I also learn English as a second language.
Ah, no, that is American as a second language. Oh, just look at the time. I think that is
enough for today’s lesson. I must get off.
Get off with whom?
I will deal with that in our next lesson.

внимания находится лицо или предмет, который подвергается действию, а не
лицо или предмет, который совершает действие. Формой выражения лица или
предмета, производящего действие, является косвенное дополнение с
предлогом by (или with, если косвенное дополнение обозначает инструмент или
орудие труда) :

действительном, так и в страдательном залоге. Непереходные глаголы
употребляются только в действительном залоге.

Упр.5.12.4. Для глаголов, совпадающих с существительным по форме,

конструкция have + a + noun обозначает однократное действие. Герундий
используется, когда говорят о чем-либо в общем. Сравните, например:
Talking to someone about a problem usually helps to solve it.
I had a talk with Susan last night.
Составьте по два предложения для каждого из следующих слов, одно с
герундием, а другое с have + a + noun.
Глава 6. Модальные глаголы.
6.1. Вступление.
Чтобы успешно применять модальные глаголы, помимо хорошо известных
правил их употребления необходимо знать некоторые детали, которые, может
быть, не столь часто упоминаются в учебниках и пособиях, однако очень важны
для понимания сути и функций модальных глаголов в английском языке.

1. Одно и то же отношение к действию можно передать с помощью разных

модальных глаголов. Поэтому, прежде чем использовать модальный глагол,
следует оценить, например, “степень” долженствования (требование жесткое,
средней степени или более мягкое) или “вид” долженствования (в силу
общих норм, обстоятельств, договоренности или моральных норм), степень
вероятности протекания события и пр.
2. Практически каждый модальный глагол многозначен. Его значение
определяется контекстом высказывания или формой следующего за ним
3. Отрицательная форма, которая для большинства модальных глаголов
образуется путем добавления частицы not, часто имеет самостоятельное
модальное значение. Например, для выражения высокой степени
вероятности протекания события используется глагол must. Если же мы в
такой же степени уверены, что событие не может произойти, то
употребляется глагол can’t.
4. Следует также иметь в виду словосочетания, выражающие отношение к
действию, например: would rather (do), had better (do), it’s high time to do.

answer, but looked up and down the street. By this time I was getting a bit worried,

he told me (f) _____________. He was a policeman, and he showed me his card to
prove it. He said that the police were watching the people who lived in a house a few
doors away, and he asked me (g) ___________________ .
I said I didn’t. I’d seen them a few times, but I hadn’t spoken to them. Then he
wanted to know (h) __________________ , so I said ‘a few weeks’. I’d seen their
furniture van on the day they moved in. Then he explained (i)
_____________________ . He asked me if he could stay in my front room and watch
the street for a while, so I showed him in. I asked him (j) _________________ , and
he said it was because they suspected of being drug smugglers. I couldn’t believe it.
He stayed for three hours, and then left. Anyway, a few days later, I read in the paper
that the police had arrested them.
