一般过去时表示现在

英语语法,时态,一般过去时

在宾语从句中,由于时态呼应的关系,一般过去时可以表示现在。如:

I didn't know you were here. 我不知道你在这儿。(were实际上指现在)

I didn't know you were so busy.我没想到你这么忙。(were实际上指现在)

另外,在某些特殊句式中,一般过去时也可以表示现在。如

It's time we started. 我们该动身了。

I wish I knew his name. 要是我知道他的名字就好了。

I'd rather you lived closer to us. 我希望你能住得离我们近点。
