A FLIGHT ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN


It was my first flight across the Atlantic Ocean. It took nine hours to travel from New York to London. When I was boarding the plane I saw the cockpit. The door was wide open so I could look at all the instruments. I was a little afraid before take-off. I tried not to think about collisions on the runway and hijackers. A few minutes after take-off all my fear was gone. I had a window seat and could watch the beautiful views. The journey was nice. I once flew by helicopter and it was horrible. Helicopters are so noisy! In London I had to go through customs. I was glad that the customs officer didnt ask me to open my suitcases.

n limba englez, virgula se folosete i la exprimarea numerelor mai mari de 1.000, inclusiv.

n ntrebrile pentru subiect, verbul to do nu este folosit dac acestea nu conin o negaie. Forma verbului de conjugat este, n aceste cazuri, identic celei din propoziia afirmativ, de exemplu: Who visited you there? Which of you wants to stay longer? Cine te-a vizitat acolo? Care dintre voi vrea s mai stea?

Dac ns ntrebarea pentru subiect conine o negaie, forma adecvat a verbului to do este obligatorie, de exemplu: Who didnt enjoy the beautiful weather? Who doesnt want to drink tea? Cine nu s-a bucurat de vremea frumoas? Cine nu vrea s bea ceai?

Regulile gramaticale sau de pronunie sunt reliefate printr-un semn special.

Forma adecvat a verbului to do este folosit n propoziii care ncep cu adverbe sau locuiuni adverbiale cu sens negativ. n acest caz se folosete inversiunea, adic do/did sau alt verb auxiliar apare n faa subiectului, ca n propoziiile interogative. Iat cteva exemple: Only after had I seen it with my own eyes I believed it. Hardly had he seen me when he ran away. Little does he know how hard we tried. Only yesterday did she tell me. Never in my life have I met such a strange man. Doar dup ce am vzut cu ochii mei am crezut asta. De-abia m vzuse, c a i fugit. Nu tie ct de mult ne-am strduit. Abia ieri mi-a spus. Niciodat n viaa mea nu am ntlnit un om att de ciudat.

Traducei acum urmtoarele propoziii n limba englez: Ea nu fumeaz mult. Ei nu ascult acea emisiune. Nu suntem grbii. Nu poi s l repari singur. Nu fi aa de serios! nc nu este nevoie s se mbarce n avion. Acum pot s-l vd? M tem c nu. El merge des n strintate? Sunt bucuroi? Putem intra?

> She doesnt smoke much. > They dont listen to that programme. > We are not in a hurry. > You cant repair it yourself. > Dont be so serious! > They dont have to board the plane yet. > Can I see him now? Im afraid not. > Does he often go abroad? > Are they glad? > May we come in?

Ai nvat cteva reguli referitoare la verbul to have. Dup cum v amintii, to have este auxiliarul pentru timpurile Present Perfect i Past Perfect, n timp ce to have to exprim obligativitatea sau necesitatea, de exemplu: I havent seen her. She said he had already bought bread. We have to be there at six. Nu am vzut-o. A spus c el cumprase deja pine. Trebuie s fim acolo la ora ase.

Verbul to have urmat de complement direct i de un verb la infinitiv fr to exprim un ordin, o comand. n limba romn, o expresie care red aceast construcie este a pune (pe cineva) s fac ceva; de exemplu: I will have my son go to the market. They will have a mechanic repair the car. He has had him pay for it. l voi pune pe fiul meu s se duc la pia. Ei vor pune un mecanic s repare maina. L-a pus s plteasc pentru asta.

V vei familiariza cu particularitile limbii engleze, semnalate printr-un simbol distinct.

Verbul to have se folosete, de asemenea, pentru situaiile n care comandm cuiva s fac ceva, fr a meniona persoana respectiv. Verbul to have n acest caz este urmat de complementul direct i participiul pasiv. n limba romn pentru situaii similare se folosete expresia a pune (comanda) s se fac ceva, de exemplu: Ill have my car repaired tomorrow. We have the carpet cleaned regularly. He had that door painted last week. Ill have my hair cut tomorrow. Voi pune s mi se repare maina mine. Noi dm periodic covorul la splat. A pus s fie vopsit ua sptmna trecut. M voi tunde mine.

Atenie la diferena de sens dintre propoziiile: Ive repaired my watch. Ive had my watch repaired. Mi-am reparat ceasul (singur). Am pus s mi se repare ceasul. (Mi-am dat ceasul la reparat.)

Traducei urmtoarele propoziii n limba englez: Tocmai am chemat pe cineva s-mi repare frigiderul. l vom pune s livreze coletul acesta mine. Ct de des i dai haina la curat? Ar trebui s te tunzi. > Ive just had my fridge repaired. > Well have him deliver this package tomorrow. > How often do you have your coat cleaned? > You should have your hair cut.

Urmtorul exerciiu v va ajuta s verificai ct de bine v-ai nsuit cunotinele introduse n aceast parte a leciei. Traducei n limba englez: Tatl meu este vduv de cinci ani. Multe muncitoare au fost concediate. Verioara mea s-a cstorit cu un brutar sptmna trecut. Sora mea vrea s devin actri. Invitatele au plecat devreme. Crezi c acest taur este periculos? Aceast iap este foarte rapid. Sora lui este ofer de autobuz. Se spune c numai masculii-canar cnt. Una dintre profesoarele noastre i-a pierdut slujba. O ziarist a vrut s m vad. E bine s ai muli prieteni. Poate s vin cu logodnica lui? Cine este soul acelei scriitoare? > My father has been a widower for five years. > Many women-workers have been fired. > My cousin married a baker last week. > My sister wants to be an actress. > The female guests left early. > Do you think this bull is dangerous? > This mare is very fast. > His sister is a bus-driver. > They say that only cock-canaries sing. > One of our teachers has lost her job. > A woman-journalist wanted to see me. > It is good to have many friends. > Can he bring his fiance? > Who is that writers husband?

S repetm cuvintele nou nvate n aceast lecie. Citii textul de mai jos, care se refer la spaiul cosmic, i traducei-l singuri: SPACE Man has always been interested in space and has always wanted to find out whether there was life on other planets. The first artificial Earth satellite was put into orbit in 1957. Four years later the first astronaut was sent into space in a spacecraft. In 1969 the first astronauts landed on the moon. In the early 1980s Americans built the first space shuttle. A space shuttle is launched as a rocket and it re-enters the Earths atmosphere and lands like an aeroplane.

Iat traducerea textului n limba romn:
