Thanks again Mr CJ,

Would you please tell me if I am correct in these meaning?


I found that someone stole into my house (Unlocked the door).

I found that someone was stolen into my house (Unlocked the door).

I saw that you hurt or injured (I saw the process/action).

I saw that you got hurt or injured (When I saw, you have already hurt/injured).


Many Thanks.

John AkiI found that someone stole into my house.

Correct, but 'steal' (past tense 'stole') means to move quietly without being seen. It has nothing to do with unlocking a door.

John AkiI found that someone was stolen into my house.

Wrong. 'steal' (in the relevant sense) is intransitive, so it cannot occur in passive form ('was stolen').

John AkiI saw that you hurt or injured ... injured what ?

Not complete. 'hurt' and 'injure' are transitive verbs, so you need a direct object.

I saw that you injured your arm. / I saw that you injured yourself.

John AkiI saw that you got [hurt /injured].

Correct. The 'got'-passive construction is possible here because 'hurt' and 'injure' are transitive verbs.

Thanks for your prompt reply Mr CJ, please let me know if I am correct in these meaning?


I found that someone broke into my house (Correct, I believe).

I found that someone was broken into my house (Wrong, "break"can't occur in passive form?)

"I saw you parking". (It means I saw that you were parking your car at that moment)

"I saw you breaking it". (I saw that you were breaking something at that moment)


Cheers.

Right.

John AkiI found that someone was broken into my house (Wrong, "break"can't occur in passive form?)

Correct. The passive doesn't work here.

John Aki"I saw you parking". (It means I saw that you were parking your car at that moment)

Yes.

John Aki"I saw you breaking it". (I saw that you were breaking something at that moment)

Yes.

Thank you Mr CJ.
