描述緊一幅相入面發生緊既野, 應該用咩tense?

比如一張相入面有個男人游緊水。

the man in this picture is swimming.
the man in this picture swims.
the man in this picture was swimming.

yoyo1311 2019-12-25 07:24 PM

depends on the time you describe that picture.
either "there is a man swimming in that picture" or " there was a man swimming in that picture"

One of the result I found is [url]https://ell.stackexchange.com/questions/20586/which-tense-can-we-use-to-explain-pictures[/url]  when I searched with Bing.

既然冇人識答你,咁等我答你啦。
其實乜tense 都可以,重點係要睇下睇表達啲嘢。

Can I ask you a quick question? :loveliness:
result or results :smile_41:

If "result" is uncountable, you cannot say "one of the result":smile_44:
=> you cannot say "one of the rice"

If "result" is countable, you cannot say "one of the result" without the 's':smile_13:
=> you have to say "one of the results" :smile_13:

On 5#, I asked you a quick question.
And I expected a quick answer.:loveliness:

Looks like you're not gonna reply to me :')
Please don't get upset :smile_46:
I brought up the question because I wanted to make sure you hadn't made any mistake.
Otherwise, others would follow your footsteps and write "One of the result". ;P

重點如你所說 -- 要睇下想表達啲乜嘢,唔係視乎「純敍事」抑或「講故事」。
14# 幅截圖寫「The man swims in the pool」算「講故事」? :smile_41:

講過咗去嘅事情,可以用「present tense」,又話叫做「historical present, historic present, dramatic present,  narrative present」,咁又點會有錯呢?:smile_30:

The best (model) answer to the question is as follows.

   It depends.
or
   It depends on the context.

This is a "one-size-fits-all" answer.
It is applicable to almost all grammar questions in the group.

Oh! No!
Baidu? Not again:smile_39:
Baidu is an intranet.
It's not connected to the Internet.
Why don't you use GOOGLE instead?
Google is connected to the Internet.

You write "[b][size=4]long draw out[/size][/b]" instead of "[b][size=4]long-draw[color=#ff0000]n[/color]-ou[/size][/b]t" even after you have been told many times that it's not correct.
