Prepozitii Of si From in Engleza

Prepozitia Of si prepozitia From in limba Engleza

Astazi, vorbim despre doua prepozitii Of si From. Sunt doua prepozitii foarte des intalnite si folosite in limba Engleza, atat in vorbire cat si in scris.

Am fost intrebat de multe ori despre aceste prepozitii. Cum ne dam seama de diferentele dintre prepozitia Of si prepozitia From?

Despre prepozitia Of am mai vorbit si intr-o lectie anterioara. Poti gasi si acolo, o multime de exemple, special dedicate lui Of.

Pentru ca este un subiect important, am hotarat sa fac o lectie speciala pentru asta.  Folosim tot timpul, atat prepozitia Of cat si prepozitia From, in Engleza.

Prepozitii Of si From – Ce trebuie sa stii?

Mai intai de toate, sa vedem cum se pronunta corect Of.  Nu este ”of” ci /əv/. Pronunta intotdeauna /əv/. From este pronuntat /frɒm/ sau /frəm/

Cand si cum se foloseste prepozitia Of?

Avem atat reguli cat si exceptii in ceeace priveste folosirea diferitelor parti de vorbire in limba Engleza. la fel este si cazul prepozitiei Of.

Desi, asta nu ne ajuta foarte mult, trebuie sa retinem ca exista o anumita  ”logica” care ne ajuta sa ne dam seama de ce folosim aceasta prepozitie.

Apartenenta sau continutul

Prepozitia Of se foloseste pentru a exprima apartenenta sau continutul cand vorbim despre lucruri.

  • Paris is the capital of France. cu alte cuvinte : Paris (the capital) is part of France.
  • I’d like another piece of toast, please. cu alte cuvinte: The piece is made of toast.

Pot exprima ”posesia” sau mai bine zis, apartenenta, pot folosi atat pronumele cat si adjectivul pronominal posesiv.

  • She is a friend of mine.

Probabil, te gandesti ca se spune: ”My friend”. Da, Este corect dar se spune si ”a friend of mine”.
Care este diferenta dintre ”friend of mine” si ”my friend”? Este vreo diferenta intre cele doua?

Da! Avem o nuanta in ceeea ce priveste sensul expresiei ”friend of mine”. Nu inseamna exact acelasi lucru.

Folosesc ” friend of mine” atunci cand nu mai refer la un anumit prieten sau acel prieten nu este atat de apropiat. Asta inseamna ca este un prieten, o cunostinta sau faptul ca nu te referi la un anume prieten apropiat.

Cand vorbim despre people, animals, or groups, folosesc  forma de Genitiv cu ‘s, pentru a exprima posesia:

  • my friend’s idea  – It was my friend’s idea. A fost ideea prietenei mele.
    the cat’s claws – ghearele pisicii

Parte din ceva mai mare
