    be it a child, a parent or a spouse

    這是假設法,用在條件子句,讓步子句。if it be a child, a parent or a spouse是完整且較古老的寫法,但現在通常用較簡單的直說法:be it a child, a parent or a spouse

    請參見遠東新世紀英漢大辭典第113頁,be的說明:當連綴動詞用B4a

    看看這幾句:Eggs are eggs, be they raw or cooked.

    No man loves his fetters, be they made of gold.

    Be he friend or foe, the law regards him as criminal.

    And come again, be it by day or night.

    您好

    "They saw that every family they visited had lost someone, be it a child, a parent or a spouse" ,

    這兒的 be it a child

    個人認為是 it could/might be a child

    (失去的親人)可能是兒女 父母 或配偶

    it could/might be a child

    省略助動詞之後的倒裝寫法
