Bài tập phân biệt tính từ đuôi ing và ed là dạng bài tập thường gặp trong tiếng Anh và có nhiều cấu trúc và cách sử dụng khác nhau gây trở ngại cho người học tiếng Anh.
Để giúp các bạn hiểu rõ hơn về cách sử dụng của cặp đuôi này, sau đây Download.vn xin chia sẻ cách phân biệt và bài tập tính từ đuôi “ing” và “ed” giúp bạn vận dụng hiệu quả. Nội dung chi tiết mời các bạn cùng tham khảo và tải tài liệu tại đây.
1. Tính từ có đuôi “-ed”
Một số động từ thêm đuôi -ed thành tính từ như: satisfied, bored, frightened,…Những từ này được dùng để miêu tả ai cảm thấy như thế nào.
E.g.1. I am really satisfied about your service. (Tôi thực sự hài lòng về dịch vụ của công ty bạn.)
E.g.2. I was really bored during the film because the film has simple content. (Tôi cảm thấy chán trong suốt buổi xem phim vì bộ phim ấy có nội dung đơn giản.)
E.g.3. My sister is frightened of my friend because he is usually dare her. (Em gái tôi sợ bạn tôi vì anh ấy hay đe dọa em ấy.)
2. Tính từ đuôi “-ing”
Một số tính từ đuôi -ing như: boring, exciting, interesting, frightening,…Những tính từ này được dùng để miêu tả ai, cái gì mang lại cảm giác như thế nào cho đối tượng khác.
E.g.1. It was such a short film, exiting one. (Đó là một bộ phim ngắn tập – bộ phim khiến tôi cảm thấy rất hào hứng.)
E.g.2. Taylor looked so frightening when she was in that white costume with long black hair.
(Taylor trông đáng sợ khi mặc bộ đồ trắng toát với bộ tóc đen dài ấy – Taylor mang lại cảm giác đáng sợ cho người khác).
Những tính từ được thành lập từ động từ thêm hậu tố luôn sử dụng “more” trong câu so sánh hơn và “most” trong câu so sánh nhất. Ví dụ:
E.g.1. When I was a child I was more frightened of snake than ghost. (Hồi còn nhỏ tôi sợ rắn hơn sợ ma.)
E.g.2. For 12 hours on the flight to Japan, I was the most bored I’ve ever been. (Trong chuyến bay kéo dài 12 giờ đến Nhật Bản, tôi cảm thấy chán nhất từ trước đến nay.)
Việc tính từ đuôi “-ed” với “-ing” lần lượt bị hiểu nhầm là được sử dụng cho người và vật là do sự trùng hợp. Thông thường, chỉ con người mới cảm thấy điều gì (tương ứng với cách dùng của tính từ đuôi “-ed”) và sự vật thì mang lại cảm giác cho con người (tương ứng với cách dùng của tính từ đuôi “-ing”).
E.g. This history book is interesting. I get more interested in history. (Cuốn sách này thú vị. Tôi quan tâm hơn đến lịch sử rồi đấy.)
Tuy nhiên, cách hiểu này trùng với nhiều trường hợp nhưng không đúng với tất cả. Chẳng hạn như trong mẩu hội thoại sau:
E.g.1. I’m so bored that I can’t find anything to do but taking selfies. (Tớ chán quá nên chẳng biết làm gì ngoài việc tự chụp ảnh.)
E.g.2. You’re boring. You came here to see me and then can’t take your eyes off your cellphone.
(Cậu chán thật. Cậu tới đây để gặp tớ và sau đó cậu dán mắt vào điện thoại).
Trong trường hợp này, người bạn chỉ biết chụp ảnh mang lại cảm giác chán cho người đối thoại, nên dù chủ ngữ là người, tính từ cần dùng lại là “boring” chứ không phải “bored”.
Mẹo phân biệt tính từ đuôi “ing” và “ed”
Thường thì đề thi TOEIC rất hay bẫy chọn tính từ đuôi “ing” hay “ed”
Với dạng thức như Ví dụ 1: He is an ________ person, cho dù là danh từ sau (person) chỉ người hay vật thì lưu ý luôn chọn tính từ dạng “ing”.
Còn đối với dạng bài như ví dụ 2: He makes me _______. Khi các câu xuất hiện 2 chủ thể khác nhau ví dụ “he” và “me” ở đây, “he” tác động vào “me” và một dấu hiệu nữa chính là động từ “make” động từ tác động (làm cho, khiến) thì chọn tính từ đuôi “ed”.
Một số động từ trong thói quen của đề thi Toeic thường chia tính từ dạng “ed”:
Một lưu ý nữa là khi thấy trong đề thi xuất hiện dạng thức giới từ đi kém ví dụ như: “I am interested in him” thì chọn tính từ dạng “ed”.
|Từ||– ING||– ED|
