The Participle –причастие

Причастие - неличная форма глагола, которая соответствует в русском языке причастию или деепричастию. Английское причастие обладает свойствами прилагательного, наречия и глагола.

1. The participles are:

  • Present participles ( staying, leaving…… VERB + ING )

  • Past participles (stayed, left……… VERB -3rd FORM )

  • Perfect participles (having left…….HAVING + VERB -3rd FORM)

2. Present and past participles can be used as adjectives:

  • We use the present participle to describe what somebody or something is. It answers the question : What kind? (* The film was extremely boring. – What kind of film?- Boring )

  • We use the past participle to describe how someone feels. It answers the question: How do you feel?

( * They were exhausted after travelling for ten hours. How did they feel? –Exhausted)

^ 3. Participles can also be used:

  • instead of a relative pronoun and full verb (* The woman waving at me is my aunt. = The woman who is waving at me is my aunt. * The new shampoo advertised on TV is very expensive. = The new shampoo which is advertised on TV is very expensive)

  • to express reason (*Feeling shy, Laura didn’t talk to Ben.= Because she was shy……* Having seen the film before, I decided to stay at home.= Because I had seen the film before, I decided…….)

  • to express time (* After taking/ having taken his Master’s degree, he applied for a job.=After he had taken his Master’s degree, he…….* Turning the corner, we saw the hospital in front of us. = As we turned the corner we saw ……)

  • when one action happens before another action ( * Having finished breakfast, I went out for a walk.=I finished breakfast, then I went out for a walk)

  • instead of the past simple in narratives when we describe actions happening immediately one after the other (* Hearing the news, she fainted.= She heard the news and she fainted)

  • to avoid repeating the past continuous in the same sentences (* He was walking down the street whistling a tune. = He was walking down the street and he was whistling a tune)
