§ 1. ИНФИНИТИВ I. Инфинитив в различных функциях

1. Инфинитив в функции определения переводится на русский язык, как правило, определительным придаточным предложением с модальным глагольным сказуемым, выражающим возможность или долженствование, или же глаголом-сказуемым в будущем времени.

This question will be discussed at the conference shortly to ope» in Moscow. Этот вопрос будет обсуждаться на конференции, кото­рая должна вскоре открыться (вскоре открывается) в Москве.

1) После слова the last и порядковых числительных (если в дан­ном предложении они выполняют функцию предикативного члена) инфинитив в функции определения переводится личной формой глагола в том же времени, что и глагол-сказуемое главного предло­жения.

The Secretary general was the first to raise this question. Гене­ральный секретарь первым поставил этот вопрос (...был первым, кто поставил...).

Если же эти слова выполняют какую-либо другую синтаксиче­скую функцию, то инфинитив может также переводиться и причас­тием.

first person to raise objections was the Minister himself. Пер­вым, выступившим с возражениями, был сам министр.

2) Пассивная форма инфинитива в функции определения сохра­няет после себя предлог, с которым употребляется данный глагол, и

переводится обычно на русский язык неопределенно-личным пред­ложением.

There was nothing to be astonished at. Удивляться было нечему.

This was not a matter to be easily agreed upon. He такой это был вопрос, чтобы по нему можно было легко договориться (по это­му/такому вопросу договориться было нелегко).

3) В отдельных случаях инфинитив в функции определения мо­жет переводиться причастием, прилагательным или существитель­ным с предлогом.

The shape of things to come is shown by the data obtained by the experts. О характере предстоящих событий можно судить по данным, полученным специалистами (экспертами).

4) В зависимости от сочетаемости слов в русском языке предло­
жение с инфинитивом в функции определения может быть переве­
дено простым предложением; модальность при переводе передается
лексически.

Не had no objections to make. У него не было возражений, (Он не мог ничего возразить.)

The items to be discussed at the next session were already agreed upon. Вопросы, подлежащие обсуждению на следующей сессии, были уже согласованы.

5) Если определение указывает на назначение предмета, то оно
сближается по значению с обстоятельством цели и переводится со­
ответственно либо определением, либо обстоятельством цели, что
зависит от контекста и от сочетаемости слов в русском языке.

Automation is one of the ways to increase production. Автомати­зация — один из способов повысить производительность (повы­шения производительности).

2. Инфинитив в функции дополнения не вызывает затрудне­ний при переводе на русский язык, он обычно переводится инфини­тивом, иногда придаточным предложением.

6

They want to submit a new proposal. Они хотят внести новое предложение.

They claim to be working for peace. Они заявляют (утверждают), что они (якобы) трудятся во имя мира (служат делу мира).

^ 3. Инфинитив в функции обстоятельства результата или следствия и сопутствующего обстоятельства.

1) Инфинитив результата или следствия, которому предшествуют слова such... (as), enough, so... , too... , only, часто имеет модальное значение и переводится на русский язык или инфинитивом, или са­мостоятельным предложением, вводимым союзами и, но.

This question is too difficult to be settled without further consultations. Этот вопрос слишком сложен, чтобы его можно было разрешить (чтобы его разрешить) без дальнейших консуль­таций.

Не managed to obtain this concession from the management only to find that no one really needed it. Он добился этой уступки от ад­министрации, но обнаружил, что она никому не нужна.

2) Если в предложении с инфинитивом в функции обстоятельства результата или следствия нет вышеупомянутых прилагательных и наречий, то инфинитив переводится, в зависимости от сочетаемости слов в русском языке, часто самостоятельным предложением, вво­димым союзом и.

year he resigned his post never to return to public life. В прошлом году он ушел в отставку и никогда уже не возвращался к общественной жизни (государственной деятельности).

Примечание. Инфинитив в этой функции представляет трудности при переводе главным образом потому, что он ошибочно может быть при­нят за обстоятельство цели. Только смысл всего предложения, а иногда и более широкий контекст позволяет определить, является ли инфинитив об­стоятельством цели или результата.

^ 4. Инфинитив в функции подлежащего, предикативного чле­на, именной части составного сказуемого и обстоятельства цели

не представляет трудности при переводе на русский язык. В этих функциях он переводится инфинитивом (в функции подлежащего или обстоятельства цели) или существительным.

^ То postpone an election due in a month's time is not technically easy; postponement would require complex legal manoeuvres, which might take weeks. Отложить выборы, которые должны состояться через месяц, непросто с организационной точки зре­ния; отсрочка потребует сложных правовых маневров, на кото­рые могут уйти недели.

Примечание. I. В сочетании с глаголом to fail или существительным failure инфинитив передает неудавшуюся попытку совершить действие или просто отрицание и часто переводится на русский язык личной формой гла­гола в отрицательной форме.

The negotiators failed to come to agreement. Участники переговоров не пришли к согласию (не смогли договориться).

2. Сочетание is (was) bound с инфинитивом переводится обязательно, неизбежно должно было.

It was bound to happen. Это неизбежно должно было произойти (случиться).

5. Инфинитив может быть в предложении вводным элементом: to tell the truth... no правде говоря... , to be frank., если говорить от­кровенно... , to put it mildly... мягко выражаясь...

Примечание. Инфинитив в начале предложения может выступать либо в функции подлежащего или обстоятельства цели, либо быть вводным элементом. Синтаксический анализ предложения дает возможность совер­шенно точно определить его функцию.

П. инфинитивные конструкции

1. Субъектно-предикативнын инфинитивный оборот (кон­струкция «именительный с инфинитивом»).

1) Предложение с этим оборотом, как правило, переводится сложноподчиненным предложением, главное предложение которого

13


(he) is reported to

is believed to is considered to... is thought to... is understood to...

is expected to... is alleged to... is heard to... is seen to... is felt to... seems to... appears to... is likely to...

is unlikely to... happens (happened) to... is sure (certain)
представляет собой неопределенно-личное предложение типа: гово­рят, сообщают, известно и т. д., придаточное дополнительное вво­дится союзами что и как.

The delegation is reported to have left for London. Сообщают, что делегация выехала в Лондон.

2) Если эта конструкция употреблена в придаточном предложе­
нии (обычно в определительном придаточном) или в причастном
обороте, то неопределенно-личное предложение в переводе обычно
выступает в роли вводного предложения.

A move which he is expected to make is an attempt to come to a mutually-beneficial agreement. Шаги, которые, как предполагают, он собирается предпринять, являются попыткой прийти к взаи­мовыгодному соглашению.

The Foreign Ministers of the European Union countries will take part in talks expected to take place early in April. Министры ино­странных дел стран Европейского Союза примут участие в пере­говорах, которые, как ожидается, будут иметь место (состоятся) в начале апреля.

3) В отдельных случаях конструкция «именительный с инфини­
тивом» может переводиться простым предложением.

Much greater economic tasks were seen to lie ahead. Предстояли значительно более важные экономические задачи.

4) Если в английском предложении сказуемое главного предло­
жения стоит в отрицательной форме, то при переводе на русский
язык отрицание часто переносится в придаточное предложение.

The preliminary talks are not expected to last more than two weeks. Ожидается, что предварительные переговоры продлятся не больше двух недель.

Сказуемое может быть выражено сочетанием модального глагола с инфинитивом. При переводе оно передается неопределенно-личным предложением с модальным значением можно ожидать, следует считать и т. п.

14

The settlement may be considered to be of primary importance to the industries concerned. ^ Можно считать, что это решение (урегулирование) имеет решающее значение для тех отраслей промышленности, которых оно касается.

6) Обратите внимание на перевод следующих слов в конструкции «именительный с инфинитивом»:

передают/сообщают (сообщается), что (он)...; утверждают, что (якобы) полагают/считают, что (он)... считают/считается, что... считают/думают, что...

по имеющимся сведениям (он)...; счита­ют/считается, что...; по существующей догово­ренности/согласно договоренности... ожидается/предполагается, что (он).., говорят/считают, что (он) якобы... имеются сведения, что (он).,, считается/рассматривается/рассматривают, что...

считают, что... кажется, что... по-видимому, (он)...

по-видимому/похоже на то, что...; по всей веро­ятности/вероятно...

маловероятно, чтобы...; едва ли/вряд ли... случайно (он)...; случилось так, что...

(он) обязательно/наверняка/определенно...

Примечание. 1. После слов likely (unlikely), sure, certain действие, выраженное инфинитивом, обычно относится к будущему времени.

The economic problems facing France are certain to have strong repercussions. Стоящие перед Францией экономические трудности на­верняка будут иметь серьезные последствия.

2. Если после глаголов to seem и to appear глагол-связка to be перед су­ществительным или прилагательным опускается, то глаголы to seem и to appear имеют значение выглядеть, производить впечатление.

Не seems astonished. Он выглядит удивленным.

15

3. Глагол to suppose может также иметь значение полагаться. Не is supposed to have it. Ему полагается иметь это.

^ 2. Объектно-предикативный инфинитивный оборот {кон­струкция «винительный с инфинитивом»).

1) Предложение с этим оборотом переводится сложноподчинен­ным предложением с придаточным дополнительным предложением, вводимым союзами что, чтобы, как.

If the Government expected the tenants to take the increase lying down, they were very much mistaken. Если правительство рассчи­тывало, что квартиросъемщики спокойно отнесутся к повыше­нию квартирной платы, оно сильно ошибалось.

Примечание. 1. После глаголов to declare, to consider и to find гла­гол-связка to be в объектном инфинитивном обороте иногда опускается.

2. Глаголы to hear, to see в сочетании с этим оборотом выражают физи­
ческое восприятие и имеют значения: слышать, как; видеть, как (а не пере­
носное значение: слышать, что = узнавать: (у)видеть, что-понимать. за­
мечать).

They heard him deny it. Они слышали, как он отрицал это.

  1. После глаголов, выражающих физическое восприятие: to watch, to
    notice, to see и т. д., этот оборот обычно переводится придаточным предло­
    жением, вводимым союзом как. если это не противоречит нормам русского
    языка в отношении данных слов. Так, глагол заметить обычно требует по­
    сле себя союза что, а не как (Он заметил, что...).

  2. Глаголы, требующие после себя предложное дополнение: to wait for,
    to rely on и др., сохраняют этот предлог перед объектным инфинитивным
    оборотом. При переводе на русский язык придаточное предложение вводит­
    ся словами чтобы: то. что...

The UN Security Council is waiting for that country to make a decision. Совет Безопасности ООН ждет, чтобы эта страна приняла решение (пока эта страна примет решение).

5. Глагол to get с объектным инфинитивным оборотом имеет значение
заставлять.

This story was told to gel him go to the police station. Эту историю рас­сказали, чтобы заставить его отправиться в полицейский участок.

^ 3. Инфинитивный комплекс (for + имя' + инфинитив) может
выполнять в предложении различные функции и переводится на
русский язык, как правило, придаточным предложением, вводимым
союзами что, чтобы.

Present plans are for the Prime Minister to make a statement in the first part of next week. В настоящий момент планы состоят в том, чтобы премьер-министр выступил с заявлением до следующей среды (не позже чем в следующую среду).

The first thing for us to do... Первое, что мы должны сделать...

Иногда инфинитивный комплекс может переводиться инфинити­вом или существительным в дательном падеже с инфинитивом.

This is no place for us to attempt to throw a strong light on the darkest page of British history. Неуместно пытаться здесь (на этих страницах) пролить яркий, свет на одну из самых мрачных стра­ниц истории Англии.

It is not for us to decide. He нам это решать.

^ 4. Независимая номинативная конструкция (существительное +
инфинитив) стоит в конце предложения и отделяется запятой. Она
передает сопутствующее обстоятельство с модальным значением
долженствования. На русский язык переводится предложением, вво­
димым союзом причем. В газетном тексте встречается довольно редко.

The sellers offered the buyers 5,000 tons of oil, delivery to be made in October. Поставщики предложили покупателям 5.000 тонн нефти, причем поставка должна быть произведена в ок­тябре (которые могут быть поставлены...).
