Unit 1 虚拟语气 1. 定义： 虚拟语气用来表示说话人的主观愿望或假想，所 说的是一个条件，不一定是事实，或与事实相反。 2. 虚拟语气的应用： 1) 在条件句中的应用 (If 引导的条件从句 ) 条件句可分为两类，一类为真实条件句，一类为非 真实条件句。非真实条件句表示的是假设的或实际可能 性不大的情况，故采用虚拟语气。 （一）表示与现在事实相反的情况。其句子结构为： 从句： if + 主语 + 动词的过去式 (be 用 were) + …… 主句：主语 + would (should, could, might) + 动词原形 + …… E.g. If I were you, I would go with him. If the weather were fine, I would go there.
Unit 1 （二）表示与过去事实相反的虚拟条件句。其句子结构为： 从句： If + 主语 + had + 过去完成式动词 + …… 主句：主语 + would (should, could, might) + have + 过去完成式动 词 +… E.g. If you had taken my advice, you would not have made such a mistake. If you hadn’t invited me, I shouldn’t have come to the party. （三）表示与将来事实相反的虚拟条件句 ( 对将来的事实实现 的可能性不大 ) 。其句子结构为： 从句： If + 主语 + should ( 或 were) + 动词原形 +…… 主句：主语 + would (could, should, might) + 动词原形 +…… E.g. If I were to work at this problem, I would do it in another way. If you were to do such a thing again, you would be punished.
Unit 1 2) 在宾语从句中的应用 (wish + that 从句 ) 在动词 wish 后的宾语从句中的虚拟语气 在动词 wish 后的宾语，常省去宾语从句的引导词 that 。 一）对现在情况的虚拟（与现在的事实相反）： 从句用过去式或过去进行式 ( 时间上是同时的 ) 。 其句子结构为：宾语从句的谓语 be 和 were (was) ，实义动词用 过去式。 E.g. 1. I wish (that 可省略, 下同 )I knew the answer to the question. 2. I wish it were spring in my hometown all the year around.(wish, were) 3. I wish I were a bird.(wish, were) 二）对过去情况的虚拟（和过去的事实相反）： 用 wish 表示对过去事情的遗憾。其句子结构为：宾语从句的 谓语用过去完成时，或 would, could, might+ 现在完成时。 1. I wish I hadn't wasted so much time. 2. He wishes he hadn't lost the chance. 3. We wished he had spoken to us.
Unit 1 三）对将来情况的虚拟 ( 表示将来的主观愿望 ) ： 从句动词 "would/should/could/might + 动词原形 "( 时间上较 后 )( 请注意：主句和从句的主语不相同 ) 。用 wish 表示对将 来事情的愿望。 1. I wish it would stop raining.( 虚拟动词 would+ 动词原形 stop) 2. I wish you would be quiet.(would + be) 3. You wished she would arrive the next day.(would + arrive) 四）注意： 1. 如果将 wish 改为过去式 wished, 其后 that 从句中的动词形式不 变。例如： I wished I hadn't spent so much money. 2. 如果 that 从句中用 would, 一般表示对现状不满或希望未 有所改变或请求 E.g. I wish he would answer my letter. I wish prices would come down.

Unit 1 Vending Machines Vending machines sell many different types of items. Some of them sell cold drinks like soda, or hot drinks like coffee or hot chocolate. Others sell candy, stamps, tickets, newspapers, and other types of small things. These machines have been successful for two reasons. They save time and they are convenient. Besides, they need no salesclerks or cashiers. In many places the customer can use the machines at any time of day or night. Although there are many different sizes and types of vending machines, they all work in basically the same way. The customer puts a coin into the machine and then pushes a button, pulls a lever, or opens a door to receive the merchandise. Some machines will also return change to the customer, and a few will make change for paper money. But the basic idea is the same. Customers like to save time and are usually willing to pay a higher price for this. Dictation A
Unit 1 The robot is with us already. Robot devices have appeared quite innocently and we are so familiar with them that we no longer even notice their existence. We drive along the road and we obey the signals given to us by the robot traffic signals which replace the policeman waving his arms. One thing that amuses foreigners is that the Englishman still obeys the signals given by these robots even if it is two o’clock in the morning when there is little or no traffic on the roads. In the kitchen the housewife passes on some of her chores to her robot washing machine and to her robot dish- washer. We make a telephone call to Europe, and the switching is completely handled by robots. In some cases programmes produced by a computer are being used to control the operation of machine tools in the factory. Dictation B
