情态动词(Modal verbs)本身有一定的词义,表示语气的单词。但是不能独立谓语,只能和动词原形一起构成谓语。情态动词用在行为动词前,表示说话人对这一动作或状态的看法或主观设想。 情态动词虽然数量不多,但用途广泛,主要有下列: can (could), may (might), must, need, ought to, dare (dared), shall (should), will (would) must not.

情态动词四大分类

编辑
①只做情态动词:must,can,may……
②可做情态动词又可做实义动词:如:need, dare
③具有情态动词特征:have(had,has) to,used to, ought to
④可做情态动词又可作助动词:如:shall(should),will(would)[1]?

情态动词注意

mustn't代表强烈禁止 must表示主观,have to表示客观。
美式英语中常用must not 而不用 mustn't. mayn't,mightn't和shan't也很少用

情态动词常用

can (could), may (might), must, need, ought to, dare (dared), shall (should), will (would)

情态动词位置

编辑
1- 具有助动词作用,可以用来构成否定句疑问句及用于简单回答。
Can you sing an English song?
你会唱英语歌吗?
Yes I can.
是的,我会。
2-后接动词原形,即不带to的不定式
She may lose her way.
她可能迷路了。
3-无人称和数的变化。
We must stay here.
我们必须待在这儿。
He must stay here.
他必须待在这儿。
4-有一定的词义,但并不完整,必须与动词原形一起构成谓语。(后面加动词原形
5-在以Could引导的表示委婉语气的疑问句,常用来表示请求别人帮助或对长辈的请求的。如:(Could you come to my party on Saturday afternoon?)注意:这里不是情态动词的用法。
回答为:肯定:Yes,I can./Sure./Certainly. 否定:Sorry,I am afraid not.
(在作否定回答时,要注意:在拒绝长辈的请求时,不能用can not,这样显得语气太过生硬,不礼貌。但是在长辈拒绝晚辈的请求是可以用can not的。)

情态动词特点

编辑
情态动词无人称和数的变化,情态动词后面跟的动词须用原形,否定式构成是在情态动词后面加 "not"。个别情态动词有现在式和过去式两种形式,过去式用来表达更加客气,委婉的语气,时态性不强,可用于过去,现在或将来。情态动词属非及物动词,故没有被动语态
He could be here soon.
他很快就来。
We can't carry the heavy box.
我们搬不动那箱子。
I'm sorry I can't help you.
对不起,我帮不上你。
基本助动词情态助动词最主要的区别之一是:基本助动词本身没有词义,而情态助动词则有自己的词义,能表示说话人对有关动作或状态的看法,或表示主观设想:
What have you been doing since? (构成完成进行体,本身无词义)
你一直在干什么?
I am afraid I must be going. (一定要)
恐怕我必须走了
You may have read some account of the matter. (或许已经)
你可能已经读过关于这件事的一些报道
除此之外,情态助动词还有如下词法和句法特征:
1) 除ought和used和have to以外,其他情态动词后面只能接不带to的不定式。如果我们把ought to和used to看做是固定词组的话,那么,所有情态动词无一例外地只能接不带to的不定式:
We used to grow beautiful roses.我们过去常常种这种漂亮的玫瑰花
I asked if he would come and repair my television set.我问他是否来修我的电视机
2) 情态助动词在限定动词词组总是位居第一:
They need not have been punished so severely.
他们不需要如此严厉的惩罚
3)情态助动词用于第三人称单数现在时的时候,没有词形变化,即其词尾无-s形式:
She dare not say what she thinks.
她不敢说她是怎么想的
4) 情态动词没有非限定形式,即没有不定式分词形式,也没有相应的动名词
Still,she needn't have run away.
不过,她不必跑了
5)情态助动词的“时”的形式并不是时间区别的主要标志。在不少场合,情态助动词的现在时和过去时形式都可以表示现在、过去或将来时间:
Would you mind very much if I ask you to do something?
你会很介意如果我让你做什么?
She told him he ought not to have done it.
她告诉他他不应该这样做
6) 情态助动词之间是相互排斥的,即在一个限定动
词词组中只能出现一个情态助动词,但有时却可以与have和be基本助动词连用:
You should have washed the wound.
你应该已经洗好了伤口
Well,you shouldn't be reading a novel.
嗯,你不应该读一本小说
7)情态动词must一般疑问句否定回答要用needn't而不是mustn't。
Must I read books every day、我必须每天读书
No,you needn't . 不,你不必

情态动词用法

编辑
首先它是动词,而且不同于行为动词,行为动词表示的是可以通过行为来表达的动作(如写,读,跑),而情态动词只是表达的一种想法(如能,也许,敢)。
用法是:情态动词+行为动词原形
例句:I can read this sentence in English.
我能用英语读这句话。
情态动词是一种本身有一定的词义,表示说话人的情绪,态度或语气的动词,但不能单独作谓语,只能和其他动词原形构成谓语。
We can be there on time tomorrow.我们明天能按时去那儿。
May I have your name? 我能知道你的名字吗?
Shall we begin now?我们现在就开始吗?
You must obey the school rules.你必须遵守校规。
情态动词数量不多,但用途广泛,主要有下列:
can (could),may (might),must,need,ought to,dare (dared),shall (should),will (would),have,had better.
情态动词还有一个很重要的用法,即情态动词表推测——
用法小结
(一)情态动词表推测的三种句式
1.在肯定句中一般用must (一定),can,could(可能),might /may(也许,或许)。
e.g:(1)He must/can/may,might know the answer to this question.
他一定/可能/也许知道这个问题的答案。
(2)It is cold in the room. They must have turned off the heating.
屋里很冷,他们肯定把暖气关了。
2.否定句中用can’t / couldn’t(不可能),may not/might not(可能不)。
e.g:(1)It can’t/couldn’t be the headmaster. He has gone to America.
这不可能是校长,他去美国了。
(2)He may not/might not know the scientist.
他也许不认识那位科学家。
3.疑问句中用can/could (能……?)。
e.g:(1).Could he have finished the task?
他可能把任务完成了吗?
(2).Can he be at home now?
他现在能在家吗?
注:以上三种句式中情态动词的语气按程度都是依次递减的。Might,could并非may,can的过去式,而表示语气较为委婉或可能性较小。
(二)情态动词表推测的三种时态
1.对将来情况的推测,用“情态动词 + 动词原形”。
e.g:(1).She must / may / might / could arrive before 5.
5:00前她一定/可能/也许到。
(2).She must/may/might/could walk miles and miles among the hills without meeting anyone.
她一定/可能/也许会在山里一连走好几英里而遇不到一个人。
2.对现在或一般情况的推测,用“情态动词 + be”,“情态动词 +be doing”或“情态动词 + 动词原形”。
e.g:(1).He must / may / might / could be listening to the radio now.
他一定/可能/也许正在听收音机。
(2).He can’t ( couldn’t ) / may ( might ) not be at home at this time.
这个时候他不可能/可能不在家。
(3).Mr. Bush is on time for everything .How can ( could ) he be late for the opening ceremony
布什先生一向准时,这次开幕式他怎么可能迟到呢?
3.对过去情况的推测,用“情态动词 + have +过去分词”。
e.g:(1).It must / may / might / could have rained last night .The ground is wet.
地湿了,昨晚肯定/可能/也许下雨了。
(2).The door was locked. He can ( could ) not / may ( might ) not have been at home .
门锁着,他不可能/可能不在家。
(3).Can / Could he have gotten the book?
难道他找到书了吗?
注:情态动词 should /ought to表推测时,意为“想必会,理应……”但与“have +过去分词”连用时,则又可构成虚拟语气意为“本应该做某事却没做”。例如:
(4).It’s seven o’clock. Jack should/ought to be here at any moment.
现在七点钟了,杰克理应随时到达。(推测)
(5).She should / ought to have attended your birthday party,but she had to look after her mother in hospital. (虚拟)
她本该出席你的生日晚会的,可是她得在医院照顾她妈妈。
(6).Tom should not /ought not to have told me your secret,but he meant no harm. (虚拟)
汤姆本不该告诉我你的秘密,可是他并无恶意。
can could 表 推测
对现在或将来的推测,两者均可用,但can 通常只用于否定句疑问句中,一般不用于肯定句,而could则可用于肯定句否定句疑问句;对过去的推测,应在 can,could 之后接动词的完成式,且此时can仍只用于否定句或疑问句,不用于肯定句;而could 则可用于各种句型。如:
Can [Could] this be true? 这能是真的吗
Where can [could] he have gone? 他能到哪里去了呢
She can’t [couldn’t] have left so soon. 她不可能走得这么早。
He could have gone home. 他可能已回家了。
注:could后接动词的完成式,除表示对过去的推测外,还可表示过去没有实现的可能性(即某事本来可以发生,却没发生),或委婉地责备某人过去应该做某事而没有去做(此时不用can)。如:
You could have started a little earlier. 你本可早点动身的。
You needn’t have cooked it. We could have eaten it raw. 你其实可以不煮熟(它),我们(本来)可以生吃。
can could 允许
表示现在的允许时,若是请求别人允许自己做某事,两者均可用,但用could 语气更委婉;若是自己允许别人做某事,一般只用 can,而不用 could。如:
Can [Could] I come in? 我可以进来吗
“Could [Can] I use your pen? ” “Yes,of course you can.” “我可以借用你的钢笔吗?”“当然可以。”(不能说Yes,you could.)
表示过去的允许时,若表示过去一般性允许(即表示某人随时都可以做某事),用could;若表示在过去某一特定情况下允许进行某一特定的活动,则不用 could。如:
When I lived at home,I could watch TV whenever I wanted to. 我住在家里时,想什么时候看电影就可以什么时候看。(一般性允许)
I was allowed to see the film yesterday evening. 昨天晚上允许我去看了电影。(特定的允许,不能用 could)
can could 表 能力
can 表示现在的能力,could 表示过去的能力,要表示将来具备的能力通常 be able to 的将来时态。其中要注意的是,could 表示过去的能力,通常只用于表示过去一般性能力,而不表示过去具体某次特定情形下能够做某事的能力。如:
他学习很努力,所以考试能及格。
误:He studied hard and could pass the exam.
正:He studied hard and was able to pass the exam.
注:若在否定句中没有以上限制,即couldn’t 可表示过去特定情况下的能力,如可说 He studied hard but still couldn’t pass the exam.
口诀:情态动词两特点
动词原形接后面,说话语气较委婉。can "能力"may"许可",must"责任"或"义务"。否定回答needn’t换,"需要"need, dare"敢"。should"应该",would"愿",have to"被迫"表客观。

This must be your pen.
这一定是你的钢笔。
3. “must + have + 过去分词”的结构常用在肯定句中,表示对过去发生的行为的推测。它的否定或疑问式用can代替must。
He must have been to Shanghai.
他一定去过上海。
have to
4. have to的含义与must相似,两者往往可以互换使用,但have to有各种形式,随have的变化而定。must与have to有下列几点不同:
① must表示的是说话人的主观看法,而have to则往往强调客观需要。如:
The play is not interesting. I really must go now.
这部剧没意思。我真的必须现在就走。
I had to work when I was your age.
当我像你这么大时,我不得不工作。
② must一般只表现在一般现在时,have则有更多的时态形式。
③ 二者的否定意义不大相同。如:
You mustn't go. 你可不要去。
You don't have to go. 你不必去。
④ 询问对方的意愿时应用must。如:

  • dare和need
1. need表示“需要”或“必须”,作情态动词时,仅用于否定句或疑问句中,在肯定句中一般用must,have to,ought to,或should代替。如:
You needn’t come so early.
— Need I finish the work today?
— Yes,you must.
注意:needn't + 不定式的完成式“表示本来不必做某事而实际上做了某事”。如:
You needn't have waited for me.
2. Dare作情态动词时,主要用于疑问句、否定句和条件从句中,一般不用在肯定句中。如:
How dare you say I'm unfair.
He daren't speak English before such a crowd,dare he?
3. Dare和need常用作实义动词,有时态、人称和数的变化,所不同的是,作实义动词时,在肯定句中,dare后面通常接带to的不定式,在否定和疑问句中,dare后面可接带to或不带to的不定式。如:
I dare to swim across this river.
He does not dare (to) answer.
Don't you dare (to) touch it!
I wondered he dare (to) say that.
He needs to finish it this evening.
  • shall
一.Shall的用法
1. Shall用于第一人称,表示征求对方的意愿。如:
What shall we do this evening?
2. Shall用于第一、第三人称疑问句中,表示说话人征求对方的意见或向对方请示。如:
Shall we begin our lesson?
When shall he be able to leave the hospital?
3. Shall用于第二、第三人称,表示说话人给对方命令、警告、允诺或威胁。如:
You shall fail if you don't work harder. (警告)
He shall have the book when I finish reading. (允诺)
He shall be punished. (威胁)
  • should
二.Should的用法:
1. Should表示义务、责任、劝告、建议,其同义词是ought to;在疑问句中,通常用should代替ought to。如:
You should go to class right away.
Should I open the window?
Should的含义较多,用法较活,现介绍三种其特殊用法。请看下面的句子:
① I should think it would be better to try it again. 我倒是认为最好再试一试。
② You are mistaken,I should say. 依我看,你是搞错了。
③ I should advise you not to do that. 我倒是劝你别这样做。
④ This is something I should have liked to ask you. 这是我本来想问你的。
从以上例句可以看出:情态动词should用于第一人称时可以表示说话人的一种谦逊、客气、委婉的语气。
Should还可以用在if引导的条件从句,表示一件事听起来可能性很小,但也不是完全没有可能。相当于“万一”的意思。从句谓语由should加动词原形构成,主句谓语却不一定用虚拟语气。如:
⑤ Ask her to ring me up if you should see her. 你万一见到她,请让她给我打个电话。
⑥ If you should change your mind,please let us know. 万一你改变主意,请通知我们。
⑦ Should I (If I should) be free tomorrow I will come. 万一我明天有时间,我就来。
此外,Why(or How) + should结构表示说话人对某事不能理解,感到意外、惊异等意思。意为“竟会”。如:
⑧ Why should you be so late today? 你几天怎么来得这么晚?
⑨ — Where is Betty living? — 贝蒂住在哪里?
— How should I know? — 我怎么会知道呢?
⑩ I don't know why you should think that I did it. 我真不知道你凭什么认为这件事是我干的。
2. “should + have + 过去分词”结构一般表示义务,表示应该做到而实际上没有做到,并包含一种埋怨、责备的口气。如:She should have finished it.
I should have helped her,but I never could.
You should have started earlier.
3.表示规章制度,用should
  • will和would
1. 表示请求、建议等,would比will委婉客气。如:
Would you pass me the book?
2. 表示意志、愿望和决心。如:
I will never do that again.
They asked if we would do that again.
3. 用“will be”和“will(would) + have + 过去分词”的结构表示推测,主要用于第二、三人称。前者表示对目前情况的推测,后者表示对已经完成的动作或事态的推测。如:
This will be the book you want.
He will have arrived by now.
The guests would have arrived by that time.
I thought you would have finished this by now.
4.will表示习惯、请求,固有性质等。
Everyday he will sit here hour after hour doing nothing.(习惯)
Will you help me with my English?(请求)
The door won't open. (固有性质)
5.Would可表示过去反复发生的动作或某种倾向。Would表过去习惯时比used to正式,并没有“现已无此习惯”的含义。如:
The wound would not heal.
During the vacation he would visit me every week。
6. 表料想或猜想。如:
It would be about ten when he left home.
What would she be doing there?
I thought he would have told you all about it.
  • ought to
1. Ought to表示应该。如:
You ought to take care of him.
2. 表示推测。注意与must表示推测时的区别:
He must be at home by now. (断定他已到家)
He ought to be home by now. (不十分肯定)
This is where the oil must be. (比较直率)
This is where the oil ought to be. (比较含蓄)
3. “ought to + have + 过去分词”表示过去应做某事而实际未做。如:
You ought to have asked him (but you didn't).
这时,ought to和should可以互相换用。
注意:在美国英语中,ought to用于否定句和疑问句时,to可以省略。如:
Ought you smoke so much?
You oughtn't smoke so much.
ought和should的区别:
1.ought语气略强。
2.should较常用。
3.ought在美国英语中用的很少,而should却相当常用。
4.ought属正式用语。
注:由于ought to 没有过去式,所以在直接引语变间接引语的过程中,就不再变化.
used to,had better,would rather的用法
1. Used to表示过去的习惯动作或状态,现在已不存在,在间接引语中,其形式可不变。如:
He told us he used to play football when he was young.
在疑问句、否定句、否定疑问句或强调句中,可有两种形式:
疑问句
Did you use to go to the same school as your brother?
Used you to go to the same school as your brother?
否定句
I usedn't to go there.
I didn't use to go there.
Usedn't 亦可拼作usen't,但发音皆为['ju:snt]。
否定疑问句
Usen't you to be interested in the theatre?
Didn't you use to be interested in the theatre?
强调句

反意疑问句或简略回答中,也有两种形式:
She used to be very fat,didn't she? (口语+常用)/ use(d)n't she? (正式+过时)
Did you use to play chess? Yes,I did.
Used you to get up early in the morning? Yes,I did. (Yes,I used to.)
2. Had better意为“最好”,后接不带to的不定式。如:
— We had better go now.
— Yes,we had (we'd better / we had better).
Hadn't we better stop now? (Had we better not stop now?)
I think I'd better be going. (用于进行时态,表“最好立即”)
You had better have done that. (用于完成时态,表未完成动作)
注:①had best与had better同意,但较少用。②You had better … 用于同辈或小辈,对长辈不可用。
3. Would rather意为“宁愿”,表选择,后接不带to的不定式。如:
I'd rather not say anything.
Would you rather work on a farm?
— Wouldn't you rather stay here?
— No,I would not. I'd rather go there.
由于would rather表选择,因而后可接than。如:
I would rather work on a farm than in a factory.
I would rather watch TV than go to see the film.
I would rather lose a dozen cherry trees than that you should tell me one lie.
I'd rather you didn't talk about this to anyone. (句中的'd rather不是情态动词,would在此是表愿望的实义动词)
注:由于used to,had better同ought to一样没有过去式,所以在直接引语变间接引语的过程中,也不再变化.
