Delo English Verbs in Use II je namenjeno vsem, ki želijo nadgraditi svoje poznavanje in rabo kompleksnejših glagolskih struktur v angleščini, kot so pogojnost in naklonskost, neosebne glagolske zgradbe, glagolski način in poročani govor. Poseben poudarek je posvečen tistim strukturam, ki zaradi razlik med angleškim in slovenskim jezikovnim sistemom predstavljajo marsikatero težavo slovenskim govorcem angleščine. Delo ponuja pester izbor gradiva z raznovrstno težavnostjo, kar omogoča postopen in poglobljen vpogled posameznih jezikovnih pojavov ter spodbuja samostojno raziskovalno delo študentov.

PREFACE A logical continuation of English Verbs in Use I, the present collection of exercises is intended to help students of English develop their understanding of the complex verbal structures in English. English Verbs in Use II has been specifically devised to offer ample material to be used for productive practice and analysis during seminar classes. The exercises focus on those verbal structures that, owing to the different verbal systems in English and Slovene, often cause problems for Slovene students of English. Particular attention is paid to conditionality and modality, non-finites, voice and reported speech. It has also been our aim to include exercises that can encourage students’ independent work and research. In most cases, an exercise can be profitably discussed in class only when students make a sincere attempt at completing it beforehand. Without prior study, students may find exercises overly challenging. A user of English Verbs in Use II may observe that there is no accompanying key. The reason for not including the key is twofold. First, in most cases there is no simple right or wrong answer, since the fundamental aim of the exercises is to motivate discussion on different possible solutions. Second, it is our personal experience that keys too often transform a meaningful exercise into a copying activity, which definitely has a demotivating effect on seminar work. It should be emphasized that English Verbs in Use II should only be considered a complement to other exercise books which handle the same subject from other perspectives and in greater detail. We wish to thank Dr. Irena Kovačič, our teacher and mentor, without whose pioneering work on the English verb this collection could never exist in the present form. We are grateful for her reading through the material and for her invaluable suggestions, all of which improved the exercises greatly. We would like to thank Dr. Milena Milojević Sheppard and Dr. Franja Lipovšek for their insightful comments and suggestions. Special thanks to our colleague Dr. Jason Blake for proofreading. Needless to say, we are fully responsible for any mistakes there might be in English Verbs in Use II.

2 Modality 1. S ta r t b y r ea d in g th e texts below, each of w hich contains var i o us d i f f er en t mea n s of expr essing modality. Can you: (a ) id en ti f y a n d n a m e them, (b ) paraphrase them by using a different way of expressing modality. Text A: Lena fetched Stella back a bit before lunchtime. She gave me one of her grins that aren’t smiles. ‘Lady Newland’s been moaning all the way back about my driving,’ she said. ‘Much too fast for her ladyship, apparently.’ She says these things in a comedienne’s voice and with a bright smile, as if that made every offensive remark all right. Stella was tired, but she had some spirit left. She sat down in the lounge, looked up at Lena and said, ‘I am not the widow of a knight or a baronet.’ ‘You what?’ ‘I’d prefer you call me Mrs Newland, but since that seems too difficult or too formal, Stella will do.’ It took courage for her to say it and the effort made her breathless. Lena looked at her openmouthed. ‘We’re all on first names here, I hope. Mrs, indeed. That would be too formal these days. Oh, definitely. You have to go with the flow, Stella, remember, that you have to go with the flow.’ Adapted from The Brimstone Wedding by Ruth Rendell

Text B: ‘Now,’ Macfarlane said, ‘Enter the payment in your book, and we will both be safe.’ Again Fettes struggled with his conscience before writing in the account book. Above all he did not want to argue with Macfarlane. The older student terrified him. ‘You can keep the money,’ said Macfarlane. ‘I’ve had my share already. But it is important that you be careful, don’t buy expensive class-books, or pay off old debts. Borrow, don’t lend.’ ‘Macfarlane,’ began Fettes, still rather hoarsely. ‘I could be hanged for helping you.’ ‘Helping me?’ cried Macfarlane. ‘You are doing this in self-defence. Suppose I got into trouble? What would that mean for you? You can’t begin and then stop.’ Fettes took the money. ‘I was a fool before I met you,’ he said. ‘Now I realise that the important thing is not to be afraid.’ Macfalane felt a little alarmed at these words. Perhaps he had taught his young companion too well.

2 Modality ‘Now between you and me,’ Fettes continued, ‘I don’t want to hang. But I don’t care about God or Hell or the Devil. These things may frighten boys, but not men of the world like you and I.’ Adapted from The Body Snatcher by Robert Louis Stevenson

2.3 Modal Verbs 1. Rea d th e text b elow and identify all modal verbs. Decide w he ther th ey exp r ess ep i stemic , deontic or dynamic modality. Justify yo ur d eci sion . My dear Adam, I know that you must be very busy but I would very much welcome a visit from you as there is a matter on which I would be glad of your professional advice. It isn’t really urgent, except that my heart seems to be wearing out before the rest of me so that I ought not to rest too confidently on the thought of tomorrow. I am here every day, but perhaps a weekend would suit you best. I ought to tell you, so that you will know what to expect, that I am Chaplain to Toynton Grange, a private home for the young disabled, and that I live here in Hope Cottage on the estate through the kindness of the Warden, Wilfred Anstey. Usually I eat my midday and evening meal at the Grange but this may not be agreeable to you and it would, of course, lessen our time together. So I shall take the opportunity of my next visit to Wareham to lay in a store of provisions. I have a small spare room into which I can move so that there will be a room for you here. Could you send me a card to let me know when you will arrive? I have no car but if you come by train, William Deakin, who has a car hire service about five minutes from the station (the station staff will direct you), is very reliable and not expensive. The buses from Wareham are infrequent and don’t come beyond Toynton Village. There is then a mile and a half to walk, which is quite pleasant if the weather is good but which you may wish to avoid at the end of a long journey. If not, I have drawn a map on the back of this letter. Adapted from The Black Tower by P. D. James

ENGL VERB ISBN 978-961-237-306-1

Delo English Verbs in Use II je namenjeno vsem, ki želijo nadgraditi svoje poznavanje in rabo kompleksnejših glagolskih struktur v angleščini, kot so pogojnost in naklonskost, neosebne glagolske zgradbe, glagolski način in poročani govor. Poseben poudarek je posvečen tistim strukturam, ki zaradi razlik med angleškim in slovenskim jezikovnim sistemom predstavljajo marsikatero težavo slovenskim govorcem angleščine. Delo ponuja pester izbor gradiva z raznovrstno težavnostjo, kar omogoča postopen in poglobljen vpogled posameznih jezikovnih pojavov ter spodbuja samostojno raziskovalno delo študentov.
