You are wanted. In which context could I use this sentence?
+0
hmmm a little maj puzzle for us all ....

in most contexts where that is the "meaning" or idea, I would probably word it differently, rephrase or use more words . Mainly cos it is PASSIVE, so the agent of the verb is hidden. I aboid using the passive as much as possible

Other ways to say the same meaning:

It's your turn now

I want you

x wants you

you have to x

I truly don't understand:
-It's your turn now
-you have to x

However, "I want you" is pretty obvious. X wants you, sounds incomplete. Maybe it would sound better if you either said the name or your wife, girlfriend...

But what is unclear to me is is when talking on the telephone, could you say "You are wanted"? Thanks in advance. I am really curious about this usage.Emotion: smile
The phrases I suggested apply to a possible range of contexts where a person could tell another that they are wanted ... like in a doctor's surgery..

for in the phone example we could say "you have to ... take this call" (which is one of my earlier offerings that you didnt understand ..

"you are wanted" is not widely used, in my experience, but other native speakers might take a different view.

Thanks, Suzie. It's so much clearer now. Cheers.
