Tko se još boji članova u engleskom jeziku?

[This post has been copied entirely from the Speak Up blog here.]

 

Čestitam vam na otvaranju ovog linka—to znači da se imate hrabrosti suočiti s malenim riječima koje nerijetko stvaraju veliku muku polaznicima tečaja engleskog jezika—s članovima. Mrskiji od njih su jedino prijedlozi, to mi je jasno. No, danas sam ovdje kako bih vam rekla da vi to možete—moguće je pohvatati pravila korištenja ovih, ponekad, nedokučivih riječi.

Kako same riječi podrške nisu dovoljne, donosim kratak, ali moćan šalabahter za korištenje člana the. Nećemo ulaziti u teoriju, nego idemo ravno na praktičan popis primjera koji vam može pomoći da odmah počnete vježbati. Niže se nalazi 10 najčešćih riječi (ili grupa riječi) uz koje Hrvati vrlo često izostave član the, kada ga je zapravo potrebno upotrijebiti.

Kao što je cijela knjiga o najčešćim pogreškama koje Hrvati čine na engleskom jeziku koja uskoro izlazi na tržište, i ova lista je izrađena prema primjerima prikupljenim na više od 1500 stranica zapisa spontano izgovorenih rečenica koje su nastale u prirodnim razgovorima Hrvata na engleskom jeziku. Učite iz tuđih pogrešaka i nemojte zaboraviti koristiti član the uz niže navedene riječi ili grupe riječi:

 

TOP DESET (GRUPA) RIJEČI UZ KOJE STOJI ČLAN THE

1. The U.K./the United Kingdom, the U.S./the United States (tj. sve države čija su imena u množini ili koja sadrže riječi poput kingdomstates ili republic) (Napomena: Imajte na umu da se uz nazive ostalih država nekoristi član thethe America, the France)

2. The past, the present, the future

3. The first, the second, the third…, the last (Ovo stoji u svim slučajevima kada koristite redne brojeve: I am going to Spain on the 11th; In the first place, he doesn’t even live here; The elevator just stopped at the third floor.)

4. The next

5. The truth

6. The internet

7. The majority, the minority

8. The right way, the wrong way (Vrijedi za sve „načine“, primjerice: theCroatian way, the whatever specific way)

9. The 90s, the 18th century, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance (povijesna razdoblja)

10. The same, the opposite

 

Ovo je mali popis koji Vam puno može značiti ako se borite s članovima. Printajte i vježbajte, što vam drugo mogu reći. Možete ih naučiti, to sam sigurna. A za sustavno vježbanje pravilnog korištenja engleskog jezika u spontanim razgovorima o zanimljivim temama, priključite se Speak Up!konverzacijskom tečaju engleskog jezika. Znate gdje se možete javiti.

Sretno s članovima. Hvala na čitanju!
