What are the three non-predicates in English?
?The Infinitive ? to do sth ? to be doing sth ? to have done ?The Participle ? doing ? having done ? done ?The Gerund ? doing ? having done
语法： 动词不定式在句子中的作用 ①作主语： e.g.To say is one thing;to do is another. It’s important to do it right away. ②作表语： e.g. What you should is to leave here at once. The problem is how to do it. ③作宾语： e.g. I want to buy something for him . I don’t know what to do next.
④作宾语补足语： e.g.He asked me to wait for him for a while. My father lets me go out alone at night.
不带to的不定式作宾补！！ ⑤作定语（位于名词或代词之后）： e.g. Do you have anything to say? Have you got the permission to use the computer ?
⑥作状语（目的、结果、原因等）： e.g.We eat to live; we don’t live to eat. 目的 e.g.We went to see him only to find him out. 结果状语 e.g.We are glad to see you. 原因状语
在too…to do …;adj./adv.+enough to do…结 构中作结果状语；在in order to ;so as to 结构中作 目的状语；在be + adj. +to do …中作原因或方式状 语。e.g. He is old enough to go to school.
He got up early so as to catch the bus. I’m sorry to hear that.

Special patterns: 1. He is said to have already finished his task. = It is said that he has already finished … 2. He is thought to be the best player. = It is thought that he is the best player. 3.

不定式易考点： 1.They are said to____(在建）a bridge. D
A. build B. built C. have built D. be building.
B 2. She seemed to ____ me before.
A. be meeting B. have met C. have been meeting
动词不定式有时态的变化！！常有进行 时（不定式动作在持续）、完成时（在谓语 动作之前完成）、完成进行时（在谓语动作 之前已经开始并一直持续的动作）。
3. She doesn’t like to ____(被表扬） in public. C A. praise B. be praising C. be praised
4.The coat is too large to ____. A A. wear B. be worn C. be wearing
动词不定式有被动语态（即逻辑主语是不定 式 动作的承受者时使用），但在以下四种情 况中不定式主动表被动！！ ①在too(enough)…to 结构中 ②在there be 结构中：
to do e.g. There is a lot of work ___________.
too + adj. / adv. + to do
** You are too young to understand． ** He was too drunk to drive home.
** The case was too heavy（for her）to carry.
…… + adj + enough + to do sth. ** you are old enough to support yourself. ** The ice was thick enough to walk on.
③在形容词 easy,difficult,hard,good,heavy等 词后作状语时。
e.g. The novel is easy to read.
The bag is heavy to carry at that time. ④虽然不定式与修饰词之间有逻辑动宾关系， 但如与另外一个名词或代词具备逻辑主谓关 系，不定式亦用主动表被动意义。 e.g.Please give the children some books to read
主谓 I have nothing to say.
三：动词不定式的省略问题：为了避免重复 前面已经出现的动词，可以省去不定式中的 动词及其宾语。 e.g. –Would you like to see our baby? --I ‘d love to( 省略！！！ . see your baby) I want to mend your radio,but I don’t know how to ___________(如何修）？ The boy want to ride his bicycle in the A street,but his father told him____.
A. not to B. not to do C. not do it D.do not to
四：不定式作定语需要加介词的情况： 1.与它修饰的词有动宾关系，而该不定式中 的动词又是不及物动词时，其后需加 适当的 介词以带逻辑宾语： e.g. She is a very nice person to work with . worry about There is nothing to _____________(担心）.
2.与修饰的词有动宾 关系的不定式，虽动词 是及物动词但已带有自己的宾语，其后需加 适当的介词，以将不定式短语与其修饰的词 连接起来。 e.g. Here is a box to put things in. =put things 动宾 介宾 in a box. Jack is the very person discuss the matter with to___________________(讨论这个问题）。
3.动词不定式修饰表地点的词如 room,house,school等时，不定式需加适当的 介词。 e.g. He is looking for a hotel to stay at . I have a small room ________________(居住). to live in
e.g. It’s time to get up. That will be the best way to solve the proble
4。不定式的时态 I saw him go out.（同时或之后） I’m sorry glad to be working with you （进行） I’m sorry to have kept you waiting.（之 前）

[例1] NMET 2000 第19题
I’ve work with children before, so I know what ___ in my job.
A. expected B B. to expect C. to be expecting D. expects
该题考查疑问+不定式在句中做宾语的用法。英 语中有一些动词 后可以跟一个疑问词的不定式 做宾语，如：
tell, discuss, know, show, learn, decide, wonder, explain…
[例2] NMET 1999 第21题
The purpose of new technologies is to make life easier, ____ it more difficult.
A. not make B. not to make C. not making D. do not make. B
因为主语是the purpose，在（purpose, wish, promise, plan）后常跟不定式，故表语要用 不定式，to不能省略，因此构成the purpose is to…not to…do 句型，故选B 。
[例3] NMET 1997第12题
I would love _____ to the party last night but I had to work extra hours to finish a report. A. to go B. having gone C. going D. to have gone D
该题考查动词不定式做宾语的 用法。would love(like) to 是固定搭配，因此B、C、不合题 意。Would love +不定式一般式，表示“想， 希望”，而接不定式完成式则表示“原本希望 而未曾实现”的意思。
[例4] NMET 2002 第14题
Having a trip abroad is certainly good for the old couple, but it remains _______ whether they will enjoy it. (2002) B A. to see B. to be seen C. seeing D. seen

The question to be discussed at the next meeting
will be rather difficult.
[例5] NMET 1996年
The patient was warned ____ oily food after the operation. A. to eat not B. eating not C not to eat D. not eat C.
该题考查不定式的否定式作主补。要注意 warn后跟词方式， ① warn sb. not to do sth. ② warn sb. against doing sth. 该题应该用①结构 另外，not 应放在to之前。 在大多数的动词可接不定式短语做宾补，只 有少数动词（五个看see
,watch,notice, observe,look at；三使役make,let, have;二听listen to,hear等）须接不带to 的不定式做宾补。
