For those of you preparing students for Cambridge English Qualifications, we now offer practice tests for A2 Key for Schools and B1 Preliminary for Schools, plus new editions of our Key and Preliminary practice tests. We also have new editions in our TOEIC range, which have been updated to reflect the new format of the exam. To support IELTS students, we also have new editions of our popular IELTS Skills series – this bestselling course has been revamped and includes lots of new features. Finally, for those of you looking for help with pronunciation, a new edition of Work on your Accent is also on the way.

USAGE NOTE

used in the negative.

He argued that if tissues could be marketed, then anything could be.

‘ I don’t mind telling you what I know.’ – ‘ You needn’t. I’m not asking you for it.’ ‘ You must tell her the truth.’ – ‘ But, Neill, I daren’t.’

However, with perfect passives, you can just use the auxiliary have or has. For example, you could say, Have you been interviewed yet? I have.

Language and usage notes

Similarly, the verb is only omitted after the modal expressions had rather and would rather when they are used in the negative. However, the verb is sometimes omitted after had better even when it is used affirmatively.

Note that when a modal with have is used for a passive or progressive verb phrase, been cannot be omitted.

‘ Will she be happy there?’ – ‘ She’d better.’ It’s just that I’d rather not.

I’m sure it was repeated in the media. It must have been. She was not doing her homework as she should have been.

10.73 You can also leave words out of to-infinitive clauses. Instead of using a full to-

10.68 If the second verb phrase contains the auxiliary have in any form, speakers of British

infinitive clause after a verb, you can just use to, if the action or state has already been mentioned.

English sometimes add done to the group. For example, instead of saying He says he didn’t see it but he must have, they sometimes say He says he didn’t see it but he must have done. He hadn’t kept a backup, but he should have done.

Don’t tell me if you don’t want to. At last he agreed to do what I asked him to.

American speakers repeat only the auxiliary verb have.

You can also do this in conversation.

He hadn’t kept a backup, but he should have. It would have been nice to have won, and I might have done if I had tried harder.

‘ Do you ever visit a doctor?’ I asked her. – ‘ No. We can’t afford to.’ Note that there are some verbs, such as try and ask, that are also often used on their own, without to.

Similarly, British speakers sometimes use do after modals.

They couldn’t help each other, and it was ridiculous to try. I’m sure she’ll help you, if you ask.

He responded almost as a student might do. American speakers do not use do after modals. Note that when the verb used in the first mention of an action or state is the main verb have, instead of using do after a modal in the second mention, you often use have instead.

In conversation 10.74 People often leave words out in conversation in replies and questions. When this happens, it can involve leaving out the main verb in the ways that have been explained above (see paragraphs 10.60 to 10.73). This is common with questions that show that you find what someone has said interesting or surprising, or that you do not agree with them. These questions always have a pronoun as their subject.

‘ Do you think that academics have an understanding of the real world?’ – ‘ No, and I don’t think they should have.’

10.69 Usually, the clause with words omitted comes after a clause in which the action or state has been mentioned in full with a main verb. Occasionally, however, for a deliberate effect, it comes before the clause that mentions the action or state in full.

Examples from Collins Corpus

‘ He gets free meals.’ – ‘ Does he ?’ ‘ They’re starting up a new arts centre there.’ – ‘ Are they?’ ‘ I’ve checked everyone.’ – ‘ Have you now?’

The problems in the economy are now being reflected, as they should be, in the housing market

meant. The question can consist of just a wh-word.

It was the largest swarm of wasps that had ever been seen or that ever would be seen.

‘ Someone’s in the house.’ – ‘ Who?’ – ‘ I think it might be Gary.’ ‘ But I’m afraid there’s more.’ – ‘ What?’ ‘ Can I speak to you?’ I asked, undaunted. – ‘ Why?’ – ‘ It’s important.’ ‘ We’re going on holiday tomorrow.’ – ‘ Where?’ – ‘ To Majorca.’

‘ Maria! We won’t discuss that here.’ – ‘ Why not?’ Note also that you can use a wh-word after a reporting verb, especially why.

Cook nettles exactly as you would spinach. You don’t get as much bickering on a farm as you do in most jobs. Survival rates for cancer are twice as high in America as they are in Britain. No one liked being young then as they do now.

I asked why. They enquired how.

However, the main verb is sometimes repeated. Can’t you at least treat me the way you treat regular clients?

Did you know…? You can see the ISS yourself. It is the third brightest object in the night sky. The light looks like a plane but it moves much faster. To learn when and where to watch out for it, go to http:// spotthestation.nasa.gov/.

Language tip The author says “‘get up’ is the wrong verb when there is no up!” So what can we say when astronauts leave their beds? Is ‘get down’, ‘get over’, ‘get through’ or ‘get about’ better? There are a lot of verbs that have ‘get’ and another word. We call these multi-word verbs.

Recognise the opinion of the writer. Use multi-word verbs.

CEF level: A2-C1

Author: Sheila Thorn

A three-level listening skills textbook based on unscripted and authentic recordings, featuring native and non-native speakers. Real Lives, Real Listening trains students in listening. Through authentic recordings it exposes students to the grammatical structures and lexis which are used most frequently in spoken English rather than just tests. It raises students’ awareness of the differences between spoken and written English, and boosts their confidence. The series reflects the latest academic theories on the importance of authentic listening practice in language acquisition.

Glossary

Authors: Louis Rogers & Dawn Willoughby

subject discipline = In an academic setting, a subject discipline is a particular topic or specific area of study.

In simple terms, when you do research, you are looking for information in order to answer a question. In academic settings, research can take many different forms depending on the subject discipline and the kind of question you want to answer. If you are studying a scientific subject, your research may take the form of an experiment to answer a question which begins with the phrase: ‘What will happen if…?’ if you are studying a social science, your research may take the form of a survey of a group of people’s thoughts, feelings or experiences. In any case, no matter what your subject discipline, at some point you will have to do some research which involves investigating what other scholars have said about the topic you are interested in. In other words, you will have to do some ‘library based’ research.

When you do library based research, you usually have to work on your own. This gives you the opportunity to become a more independent learner and to show that you can think for yourself. These are qualities that are highly valued in academic settings within the English speaking world. However, working independently does not mean that your research is not connected to the work of other people. One of the main purposes of universities is to produce knowledge, that is, to create, evaluate and disseminate new information and ideas. Producing knowledge usually involves many scholars working in different times and places. When you do research as part of your course, you are learning skills which will allow you to participate in that wider effort. You have the opportunity to develop the ability to: ■

What is research?

Numbers

disseminate = To disseminate information or knowledge means to distribute it so that it reaches many people or organizations.

Create a research question and an argument to answer it Evaluate the research that has been done by others – that is, to consider it carefully and make judgements about it Disseminate your research by writing it up and submitting it for a mark, and, in some cases, by sharing what you have learned with other students on your course

How do you know if your research is good? In some parts of the world, students are judged according to how well they retain information given to them. In the English speaking world, when your research paper is being marked, the marker will normally use other criteria for judging how well you have demonstrated the skills involved. These are the questions the marker may ask themselves: 1

Has the student created a worthwhile research question (or interpreted the set research question in an interesting way)?

2

How well does the student know what other scholars have written about the topic?

3

How skilfully has the student evaluated the work of other scholars?

Vocabulary Organizer Authors: Pete Sharma & Barney Barrett

Learn new words more quickly Research shows that students need to see a new word as many as eight times before it passes from short-term memory into productive vocabulary. Vocabulary Organizer helps students to do this by providing structured and organised templates in which to record and review their vocabulary. Students learn how to: • • • •

Remember new words more easily Differentiate between active and passive vocabulary Record vocabulary in a structured way Find their vocabulary to review

It’s very useful in that it helps students take an active part in vocabulary learning and saves them from asking for ‘lists’ as they often do!” Susanna Wesson, France
