請問after before之後可以直接加過去分詞嗎?

after, before之後可以加 V-ing


因為+ V-ing時的after before為介係詞


所以也不能將after,before+ p.p.視為保留連接詞的分詞構句

而應該說after, before + being + p.p.




我的同事都認為after, before+ p.p.是正確的


Please help. Thanks!

    after/before+ p.p是錯誤的。因為介系詞後面的字是其受詞,應用代名詞或名詞性質的字或片語。p.p.不能當名詞用,所以不可能拿來當介系詞的受詞。

    I'll die before giving in. =我寧死不屈。giving in是「動名詞片語」。

    Knock at the door before entering the room.後面的entering the room也是動名詞片語。before entering the room是用來修飾述部的「介系詞片語」,屬副詞性能。

    同理,Wash you hands after touching raw meat.裡的touching是動名詞。

    Barlow was arrested 24 hours after arriving back in Britain.裡的arriving也是動名詞。動名詞有「完成式」:having ~ed,但因為after已經表明了先後,就簡單式就可以了。

    To hear him speak English, one would take him for an Englishman.

    to take xxx for yyy =把xxx認成yyy

    所以xxx與yyy 的詞性是相當的

    i took it for granted.裡的過去分詞是當名詞在用。

    許多英文文法是有例外的, 如 long time no see 已被接受,不受文法約束。 但“今天不可以這樣用並不代表明天不可以,所以不能算錯."這種說法各位不覺得很可笑嗎? 足球員不就可以說“今天守門員可以用手,明天可能別的位置也可以用手,所以我把球丟進門不能算犯規,而且應該算得分”?

    "before had" 有787,000筆結果,

    "before having": 2,490,000筆,

    "before being had": 4,610,000筆,

    而且搜尋"before had" 出現的句子多半都是Never "before had" he treated me well.這樣的倒裝句,並非我們所討論的結構。

    "after watched" : 54,800筆

    "after watching": 5,350,000筆

    "after being watched": 5,800,000筆

    "after listening": 9,150,000筆

    "after being listened":1,760,000筆

    2014-03-30 22:25:22 補充:

    所以目前看起來,after, before + p.p.的google搜尋筆數是遠少於加V-ing的,而且搜尋到的after, before+ -ed的句子中,大部分也都不是p.p.,而是動詞過去式,極有可能是口語用法中省略主詞的結果,而且似乎蠻多個案都是省略掉"I"這個主詞。

    In my opinion, you shall not stick with preposition can only follow with V-ing. Instead you shall broaden it as "preposition + object". If so, then you certainly have

    before (or after) + p.p. (past participle phrase)

    because you can use "p.p." to lead a participle phrase and use it as an object for before (or after). For example:

    After watched the Journey, mommy said she wanna go to Hawii.

    He knows which song of Ariana is playing after listened to the first beat.

    He felt nervous about HIV after had sex without condom.

    2014-03-28 11:38:22 補充:

    preposition follows with past participle is very common, for example:

    Please do as asked !

    I took it for granted.

    I think we can take their support as given. = I think we can take (it) as given that they will support us

    if master Louis thinks preposition can only follow with V-ing, then how you explain

    Please do as asked!

    The above two sentences are very common in daily conversation or newspaper.

    2014-03-28 11:45:05 補充:

    Master Louis! If you think preposition can only follow with V-ing, then how do you explain:

    Please do as asked!

    I took it for granted.

    2014-03-28 12:06:06 補充:

    I am sure you have seen these expressions very often!

    in #005

    Why you don't want to use

    Please do as being asked.

    If you can treat "as" as conjunction, then in the above sentence, it is treated as preposition.

    2014-03-28 20:34:04 補充:

    My point is NOT what is omitted in those two sentences, but people use it "as is". I just like to ask you how to explain it when it is used as is.

    2014-03-28 20:34:47 補充:

    Trust me! I do have the same idea as you have, but I have seen so many "preposition + p.p." uses in my daily life, it changes such an idea.

    2014-03-28 20:37:11 補充:


    You can google "before (or after) + p.p.", for example:

    "before had"

    "after watched"

    "after listened"

    ….. (with quotation marks)

    you will see people DO use it!

    2014-03-28 20:39:10 補充:

    We, as none native speakers, always treat grammar as a bible to use English. Thinking whatever doesn't agree with grammar rule is wrong. The truth is not ALL English uses agree with grammar. There are many uses that grammar CANNOT explain.

    2014-03-28 20:42:13 補充:

    We shall not treat these uses as wrong ones, if native speakers use it as is. Instead we shall learn it and use it like native speakers. Master Louis likes to refer to grammar books or dictionaries. Nevertheless, what the information said is just for what can be explained by grammar.

    2014-03-28 20:51:45 補充:

    I have NO doubt about these sayings. However, using English is NOT limited to what grammar allows. For example:

    take it for granted,

    as is,

    do as asked,

    take it for proven that,

    take it as decided that,

    All the above, you can google them, and find many hits.

    2014-03-28 20:54:52 補充:

    If so, can you say they are ALL WRONG?

    Today, you asked a question like this, yes, I certainly agree with what you have said in the question itself. However, you shall also do some homework to see whether there is any exception!

    2014-03-28 20:57:15 補充:

    I did it before, and found these uses. However, I could NOT find the explanation in ANY grammar book. I certainly cannot accept them as wrong use as master Louis says. After all, it cannot be so many WRONG uses.

    2014-03-28 21:00:44 補充:

    Maybe, this is so-called language evolution. At the present time, no grammar book will accept or explain, but many years later, maybe, it will be accepted and as part of grammar rules.

    2014-03-28 21:07:44 補充:

    I appreciate you ask this question. I have noticed this several years ago and couldn't find any explanation for it. Hopefully, some able masters can shed some light on this, without just saying this is wrong use, or it is omitted this and that.

    2014-03-28 22:07:13 補充:

    Master Louis! As I have said, your explanation is what I know of. What poster wants is whether there is ANY possibility that you can use P.P. after a preposition.

    2014-03-28 22:09:19 補充:

    I googled for a while in the past to answer my own question, and it did indicate such uses are allowed. Why? I don't have a solid idea.

    2014-03-30 23:01:15 補充:

    Like I said, the situation "before(after)+p.p. (or past participle phrase)" is not wrong, people use it in a certain situation. You brought it up and I did have this same question, so I brought it to your attention. There is NO right or wrong, but just beware of it.

    2014-03-30 23:04:11 補充:

    After all, language does evolve from time to time, what is NOT used today might be very popular tomorrow. We shall NOT simply hold onto what the grammar says and ignore its evolution. Maybe, you don't want to use it, that is fine, but at least keep in mind: such a use is being used.

    2014-03-30 23:05:55 補充:


    I don't mean what master Louis's saying is wrong, but just try to let you know the questioned use is in use.

    2014-03-30 23:07:27 補充:

    You asked this question to see whether people really use it. The answer is YES. Right or wrong is NOT up to use to judge.

    2014-03-30 23:20:28 補充:

    to respond #031:

    "Do as asked" is different from "Do as I say".

    "as" uses as conjunction is true for "Do as I say", because

    Do as I said = I do as I said, or you do as I say,

    You use "as" to connect TWO sentences.

    2014-03-30 23:22:29 補充:

    However, "do as asked"

    Is different story, because "do" and "asked" are NOT is the same verb tense. Hence, it is better to treat "as" as a preposition, not a conjunction.

    2014-03-30 23:23:31 補充:

    This is like

    do as being asked

    "as" is a preposition not a conjunction.

    2014-03-30 23:27:19 補充:

    typo! #037

    … are NOT is the same … ==> … are NOT in the same …

    2014-03-30 23:36:01 補充:

    yes, conjunction can connect sentence with different tenses. However, in a short sentence like "do as asked" is better to use the same tense. After all, if you use different tense. It means, the "do" is done much later than the "asked".

    2014-03-30 23:39:06 補充:

    Even though, logically, it still makes sense, but when you use "do as asked" ("as" as preposition), likely, you really want is "do as ask" ("as" as conjunction), because you want the "ask" to be done right away.

    2014-03-30 23:41:42 補充:

    What I try to say is, the function of "as" in the sentence is NOT based upon the grammar rule, but based upon the context of the sentence. We shall NOT determine its function based upon grammar!

    2014-03-30 23:42:47 補充:

    After all, grammar doesn't control the use of language. What controls the use language is based upon the idea of the person who wants to express it.

    2014-03-31 07:21:35 補充:

    You got to understand the difference between ball game and language:

    To play ball game, you set the rule BEFORE you play it.

    As for language, you use it BEFORE grammar is organized.

    2014-03-31 07:31:11 補充:

    Hence, game rule can be changed over night, but language use needs time to evolve.

    participle clauses following conjunctions and prepositions

    Participle clauses, with -ing particularly, can be used after various conjunctions and prepositions, such as: when, while, before, after, on, without, instead of. Note the following examples:

    1. Remember to take all your belongings with you when leaving the train.

    2. I sprained my ankle while playing tennis.

    3. Before entering the mosque you must take off your shoes.

    4. After taking everything into consideration, we decided to sell the house.

    5. After having driven 300 miles across country, I arrived to find the house had been sold.

    6. On hearing that my sister was planning to marry him, I decided to leave the flat to her.

    7. Without wanting to seem rude, I must tell you that you are ungrateful.

    8. Instead of listening to my advice, she walked out without saying goodbye.

    Note from the above examples that the participle clause normally, but not invariably, comes in front of the main clause.
