Untuk menyatakan gerakan dalam arah tegak lurus kita menggunakan upwars dan downwards.

  • The smoke went upwards.
  • Look at the way this line in your palm moves upwards.

Perhatikan juga forwards, backwards, towards, dan sideways.

  • When you see the enemy, move fordwards not backwards!

  • He looked sideways at her.
  • A train never moves sideways.


Percakapan di atas berisi bermacam-macam kalimat yang menunjukkan pokok-pokok yang sudah kita kenal dalam pelajaran 14 – 25. Kalimat-kalimat itu dapat dilihat pada daftar dibawah ini, dan sebagian besar berhubungan dengan kata kerja. Perhatikan masing-masing kalimat, dan cobalah menjawab pertanyaan-pertanyaan di bawah. Kemudian periksalah kembali pelajaran yang bersangkutan dan pelajarilah dengan seksama.

  • I’ve never pretended to speak English.

Banyak kata kerja bahasa Inggris yang digabungkan dengan cara ini.

(b) Kata kerja + akusatif + infinitif:

Perhatikan bahwa kata-kata kerja yang menyatakan keinginan (wish, desire, dan sebagainya) harus diikuti oleh akusatif dan infinitif dan tidak diikuti oleh bentuk pengandaian.

(c) Kata kerja + infinitif tanpa to:

  • I can see that you come from a distant country.

Dapatkan anda mengingat lima kata kerja lain yang menggunakan infinitif to? (Pelajaran 16). Kapankah need bisa menggunakan infitinitf tanpa to? (Pelajaran 18).

(d) Kata kerja + akusatif + infinitif tanpa to:

(e) Kata kerja + bentuk ing:

Beberapa kata kerja diikuti oleh bentuk ing:

Apakah anda bisa mengingat empat kata kerja yang juga harus diikuti oleh bentuk ing?

(f) Kata kerja +  bentuk ing atau infinitif tanpa to:

Beberapa kata kerja menggunakan bentuk ing atau infinitif tanpa to:

  • I can see you using your umbrella during your stay in England.

Ingatkah anda perbedaan antara pemakaian since dan ago sebagai kata depan yang menyatakan waktu? (Pelajaran 19).


Kebanyakan kata keterangan dalam bahasa Inggris letaknya di belakang kata kerja jika kata kerjanya tidak mempunyai objek langsung, atau di akhir kalimat:

  • I think you speak English perfectly.

Kapankah susunan yang lazim untuk kata keterangan waktu, kata keterangan cara, dan kata keterangan tempat bila kata-kata tersebut terdapat dalam satu kalimat? Di manakah letak kata keterangan frekuensi seperti often, never, dan sebagainya? (Pelajaran 14).


  • We are connected with Mr. Smith because my aunt married his brother.
