狀態連接動詞(Be verbs)通常用於表達狀態、關係、屬性、身份


Be 動詞基本上屬於「連接」動詞(Linking verb),連接形容詞或名詞屬性:

She is nice.


She is a teacher.

這類動詞用於「靜態的」的連結,不牽涉到動作,只是用來描述狀態或狀態變化:

狀態:be, seems, appears

狀態改變:become, get, turn into

後面可以接表達外在或內在特徵的形容詞,如:

He is / seems / appears tall. → 外觀狀態

He is / seems / appears sad. → 心情狀態

His face turned green. → 外觀變化

He got / became angry. → 心情變化

也可以接名詞性的身份、關係:

He is a vegetarian. → 常態事實


She became / turned into a vegetarian. → 狀態改變
