进行时的另类含义

进行时除了表达“正在进行”的含义,还有另外两个用法:

一、代替将来时,表达“将来”含义

现在进行式表达“一般将来”,过去进行时表达“过去将来”。相比用将来时,用进行时表达将来显得较为随意和非正式。

1、When are we leaving and when are we coming back?

句意:我们什么时候走,什么时候回?相当于:When will we leave and when will we come back?

2、The clerk confirmed that his plane was leaving at nine o’clock.

句意:工作人员证实他的飞机将在9:00起飞。相当于: The clerk confirmed that his plan would leave at nine o’clock.
