1 1. IL PRESENTE (PRESENT SIMPLE) Le voci del presente del verbo be sono: I am you/we/they are he/she/it is Nella lingua parlata si usano le forme contratte: I'm you're/we're/they're he's/she's/it's La forma negativa si ottiene aggiungendo not. I am not you/we/they are not he/she/it is not Forme contratte: I'm not you/we/they aren't he/she/it isn't La forma interrogativa si ottiene invertendo la posizione del soggetto e del verbo. Forma interrogativa negativa: Am I? Are you/we/they? Is he/she/it? Forma interrogativa negativa: Am I not? Aren't you/we/they? Isn't he/she/it? I'm from Chicago. Where are you from? Io sono di Chicago. Tu di dove sei? Is Rita married? No she isn't Rita è sposata? No. My parents aren't at home today. I miei genitori non sono in casa oggi. Il Present Simple si forma con l'infinito senza to. I work you work we work they work Io lavoro tu lavori/voi lavorate noi lavoriamo loro/essi/esse lavorano Alla terza persona singolare (he/she/it) si aggiunge s. Con i verbi terminanti in o, s, ch, sh, x si aggiunge -es. Alcuni verbi, come be e have, sono irregolari. She works he goes Bob watches she misses he wishes he relaxes he has she is I verbi in -y preceduta da consonante terminano in -ies alla terza persona singolare. I play she plays I study he studies we try Bill tries
2 La forma negativa si costruisce con do not e il verbo all'infinito senza to. Alla terza persona singolare si usa does not nello stesso modo. I do not work she does not work Io non lavoro lei non lavora Nel parlato e nei testi scritti informali si usano le forme contratte don't e doesn't. I don't work she doesn't work Quando si usa?
