    to employ是不定詞,當介系詞about的受詞,屬於名詞性質。

    was about to employ是一種表示最近的將來,多用於文言。was過去式,表示時間座標是過去某一點上,所以employ在當時尚未發生。

    The train is about to start. = The train is just going to start. =火車就要開了。

    The plane was abou to take off. =那時飛機即將起飛。

    請參見說明及例句:柯旗化<新英文法>p.257

    The government was about to employ wide surveillance, but the department of the

    justice objected to it.

    是一個compound sentence,用對等連接詞but連結。時間座標是過去。
