英語教學: 文法大哉問:when和while引導的時間副詞子句

文法大哉問  whenwhile引導的時間副詞子句


Q: when  while 引導的時間副詞子句,用法有何不同呢?




n   when 子句的動詞可以為延續性動詞或非延續性動


n   while 子句的動詞必須是延續性動詞


When Daddy came home, I was preparing dinner. 當老爸回家時我正在準備晚餐。


  †由於 came 是瞬間動詞,所以不能用 while 來代替 when




n   when 子句的動詞通常為過去簡單式


n   while 子句的動詞往往是過去進行式


 when 子句的動詞與主要子句的動詞都是過去簡單式時,when 子句的動作較早發生,此時 when 相當於 after


ž   Mary stood under a tree when it began to rain. (也就是說,是開始下雨後瑪莉才在站在樹下)


ž   When Mary stood under a tree, it began to rain.(這句話又不同了,這句話是,瑪莉站在那樹下之後,才開始下雨的)


ž   When the film ended, people walked out of the theater. (電影結束後,人們走出戲院)




I was enjoying dinner when my wife came home.= While I was enjoying dinner, my wife came home. (我太太回家時,我正在享用晚餐)


以這句而言,我吃晚餐的動作發生的時間比我太帶回家的時間還早,而我太太回家時,我正在吃我的晚餐,這句話可以用while 是因為「我太太回到家」「我在正吃晚餐」這兩個動作是同時發生同時進行


結論在此句型,過去進行式的動作比過去簡單式還要早發生,並且when 子句的動詞都是用瞬間動詞。




主要子句和時間副詞子句都用過去進行式,用 while 來引導時間副詞子句,並且兩個子句的動詞必須都是延續性動詞


While I was studying in the dormitory, my roommate was having a party in the other room. 當我在宿舍唸書時,我的室友正在另一個房間開舞會。


= I was studying in the dormitory while my roommate was having a party in the other room.

There’s a strong link between imperfection, unconditional love and posttraumatic growth. In truth, we can only witness unconditional love in the hard times. If you believe in luck or miracles, be aware of the seven deadly sins and the seven heavenly virtues. According to the Bible, no one will be exempt from life challenges, including the chosen ones (1 Peter 1:3-9). God expects us to stay hopeful and “rejoice in our sufferings,” because “trials of various kinds” are training to make us “perfect and complete” (Romans 5:3-6, James 1:1-27). It’s comforting to know that “God promises to make something good out of the storm” (Roman 8: 28). We fall and we learn. As we learn to humble ourselves, life gets better. The connection between the brain and stomach is bidirectional. Excessive sugar intake sabotages our immune system and 70% to 80% of our immunity hinges on our gut health. Memory loss and cognitive impairment are common symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, all of which are highly connected to type 2 diabetes. Early signs of type 2 diabetes include chronic fatigue, irritability, frequent urination, vision problems and slow wound healing. Depression is prevalent in people with diabetes due to the fact that diabetes causes “structural changes in the brain.” It’s worth noting that muscle-building helps regulate blood sugar levels. There is growing evidence that reduced muscle mass is associated with hyperglycemia. Beyond that, there’s a strong link between sleep deprivation and emotional weakness Be aware of the power of tenderness, humility and subconscious mind. Generally, negative emotions root in the inability to forgive, vanity or pride. People suffer from suppressed anger. God is watching our every move. God sees through our motives. Mental health crisis is sweeping on a global scale because the core value of capitalism is incompatible with what human truly needs. Money cannot purchase inner peace nor unconditional love. Wealth incurs fair-weather friends, frenemies and snobs. I would say, inner peace is the utmost blessing from God. Trauma is highly linked to chronic fatigue and chronic illness. Take time to deal with your old mental wounds. 佛教用因果論概括一切,而聖經主張人生必有難題(但好好表現,災難背後會有禮物),如果你以為誰的人生輕鬆,肯定你是跟對方不熟。脖子控管自律神經!肩頸僵硬,「自律神經」就會被受到壓迫!自律神經失調引發的症狀包括頭痛、暈眩、焦慮、失眠、倦怠、口渴、耳鳴,甚至憂鬱等症狀。自律神經失調了,血液的品質也會跟著惡化!解法:甩手操。腸胃健康和大腦健康息息相關,國外大力探討久坐對身體的傷害!健康建議:天芢無糖抹茶搭配芝麻和牛奶X 無糖豆漿X鹼性飲食X淋巴按摩X練肌耐力(控制血糖的關鍵)。鈣是解痛劑。維生素E主修復,可加速傷口癒合。高壓容易緊張族群可多攝取維生素B和鈣的食物。一夜白頭是心理影響身體的鐵證,勿低估負面情緒對身體的傷害,包括生悶氣或憂愁。詳情請參看網站醫療專欄。壞脾氣一定有理由,可能是高血糖或創傷症候群或高壓族群,而壞情緒會把幸運(福氣)和天使嚇跑。禍福相依,好消息可能會成為頭痛點,壞消息可能成為跳點!不屬於自己的只會逗留,不會久留,勿強求。引用小說《推理愛》:「判斷一個人愛不愛她很難,但判斷一個人珍不珍惜她卻很簡單。」「帶著疤,才可以找到真正愛你的人。」「柔和」「謙卑」與「歸零」的力量。自信缺氧,就用力學習。不自律就無法成為更好的自己,不自律就無法肯定自己!提醒自己:做該做的而不是想做的。預防改善糖尿病推薦食材:洋蔥、無糖抹茶、咖哩及酪梨。理財時代,從照顧好自己的健康開始。遠離乳癌,醫師呼籲不要使用塑膠袋裝熱食!國外研究證實:阿茲海默症患者「禁糖」便可望痊癒!人們低估了「糖過量」及「過食」對身體的破壞力。咖啡和巧克力的好被過度放大.精神不濟喝咖啡恐消耗維生素B。聖經說了,說過的每句話都會被記錄在一本書裡!好壞都被記錄了,所以聖經主張人們不可記他人的過錯。最佳午睡時間是20分鐘和90分鐘。以上,互相督促。生命線協談專線:1995 安心專線:1925 張老師專線:1980 自殺防治諮詢安心專線:0800-788995
