would like是谓语动词吗?

是的,would like 是谓语动词,意为“想要……”,形式上是“过去将来时”,常被用作一种“委婉”的表达方式,表达虚拟语气,如:

  1. We would like to help in any way we can. 我们愿意以我们所能的任何方式帮忙。
  2. She would like a haircut. 她想理发。

1句中的to help和2句中的a haircut都是谓语动词would like的宾语。

作为谓语动词,would like有相应的完成式would have liked,表达“本来想要…”,如:

  • I would have liked to have a little bit more cheese, but the flavors were great. 我本想再吃一点点,可是奶酪的味道实在是太棒了。

国内语法常用would like to have done,国外语法常用would have liked to do,相比之下,后者更符合谓语动词的通常形式。
