Never mind Mister Micawber.But I have read all those topics that you underlined.I know you try your very best to explain this question.I hope other people could help me better to answer this question.Thanks
I just really don't know the techniques eventhough I have read everything.I hope you can explain to me clearly like my another post entitled " List or Lists ".I just confused.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Passive voice, predicate adjectives, linking verbs and action verbs, perfect and continuous aspects-- this is far too broad a set of topics to try to explain here. If you do not understand the explanations at the sites you googled, spend some time and try some others. Work through the quizzes they set, check your grammar book again. Then if there is a specific point you do not understand, we will try to answer it for you.
Hi,

I'll try to explain in a simple way. Hope it works.

Questions with helping verbs: (HV "be") But don't forget that there's a lot of HELPING VERBS (will, would, can, could etc.) and "BE" is one of them.

She is tall. Is she tall?

My pen is new. Is my pen new?

Tom and Jerry are playing chess. Are Tom and Jerry playing chess?

My car is fancy. Is my car fancy?

Questions without helping verbs: (Do,Does,Did) This time you should use them. In using DO DOES DID pls. don't forget this. DO DOES DID (n't) + V base.

My dog barks every night. Does my dog bark every night? (singular)

The ship sank in the Pacific. Did the ship sink in the Pacific? (past)

My brothers like to watch cartoons. Do my brothers like to watch cartoons? (plural)

Thanks! hope it helps.
Hi,

In addition, you can try this:

HELPING VERBS: DO,DOES,DID, (N'T) BE, WILL,WOULD,COULD,CAN,SHOULD,SHALL, HAS, HAVE ETC.

Formula:

1) HV + Subject + V?

i.e.

Should I write this?

Does she dance?

Have you eaten lunch yet?

Has she lifted the pages?

2) BE + Subject + noun/adjective/adverb.

i.e

Are you angry?

Is she bored?

Is she a teacher?

Pls. try making your own examples and feel free to ask.

So, Is it " Is she allowed " or " Has she allowed " or " Does she allowed "? Many people says that Is ? Why ? I thought your formula said that Is + subject + noun/adverb/adjectives? But allowed in this case is verb right? Example," She allows him "," They allow him ".

Hi,

In this case, you should learn to use the passive and active. Here's some examples.

She is allowed to enter the room (by her sister). Is she allowed to enter the room? (passive voice)

Her sister allows her to enter the room. Does her sister allow her to enter the room? (active voice)

"IS" is "BE" and "BE" is considered as HV so this formula HV + S + V is applicable.

i.e.

She is allowed. (passive) Is (HV) + she(Subject) + allowed (verb)?

Thanks
I think you have to sort out your basic verb forms. You seemed to be confused with the passive and present perfect forms.

John's dad allows John to borrow his car on the weekends. Allow - is in active voice and is in present tense which is used on events or things that occur regularly.
John is allowed to borrow his dad's car on the weekends. John is allowed [by his dad] - is in passive voice.. Here - is functions as a helping verb which is used in conjunction with a past participle "allowed". "Is allowed" denotes the present tense because the borrowing occurs [regularly] every weekend. "Allowed" is the main verb in the form of past participle.

Thanks Mister Micawber.Now I understand 100% .So,"Is she allowed to enter the room?" is in passive form.But I thought anything passive form should has by at the subject.For an example,"Is a house built by Peter","The students are thought by the lecturer"?Why my fist sentence has not followed by by?.Another thing,"Is our car stolen?"Is this sentence stolen representing adjective or in passive form?If not,how am I supposed to change the sentence so that it's in passive form?
