USE 2 Facts or Generalizations

The Simple Present can also indicate  the speaker believes that a fact was true before, is true now, and will be true in the future. It is not important if the speaker is correct about the fact. It is also used to make generalizations about people or things.

Ordinea cuvintelor in limba engleza

Ordinea cuvintelor in propozitie este esentiala pentru sensul propozitiei in limba engleza

Limba engleza – SVO

Engleza vorbita astazi sau engleza moderna, este o limba analitica, ceea ce inseamna ca ordinea cuvintelor in propozitie este esentiala pentru sensul propozitiei. Spre deosebire de limbile analitice, limbile sintetice folosesc din plin inflexiunile (in special terminatiile-sufixele) pentru a indica o schimbare a functiei gramaticale a unui cuvant.

Limba engleza este de tipul SVO (Subject-Verb-Object = Subiect-Verb-Obiect):
Tim (subiect) drinks (verb) water (obiect).
