Complementele circumstantiale (Adverbials)

Complementele circumstantiale (Adverbials)


Complementul circumstantial este partea de propozitie care determina sau modifica un verb, un adverb, un adjectiv sau o intreaga propozitie.

Ca determinant al verbului, complementul circumstantial indica imprejurarea in care se petrece o actiune (locul, timpul, scopul, cauza etc.): A taxi appeared at the corner of the street. (loc) They arrived half an hour later. (timp)

Atunci cand determina un adverb, adjectiv sau echivalenti ai acestora, complementul circumstantial arata cum se prezinta o insusire: It was nearly dark. Era aproape intuneric. They are nearly there. Aproape au ajuns.

2. Clasificare

Complementele circumstantiale in limba engleza se impart, ca in limba romana in: complemente circumstantiale de loc, de timp, de mod, de cauza, de conditie, de scop, concesive, consecutive etc.

3. Complementul circumstantial de loc (The Adverbial of Place)

3.1. Definitie. Complementul circumstantial de loc indica locul, punctul de plecare, directia sau limita unei actiuni sau stari.

Nota: Unele complemente circumstantiale de loc exprimate prin adverbe de loc, indica locul propriu-zis: here, there, somewhere. Altele indica directia: aside, forward, right, left. Majoritatea adverbelor de loc insa pot fi folosite pentru a exprima atat locul, cat si directia:

Loc: He doesn't live far. Nu locuieste departe.

Directie. He didn't go far. Nu s-a dus departe.

3.2. Complementul circumstantial de loc este exprimat prin:

a) un adverb sau o perifraza advebiala de loc: She is here. He was walking to and fro.

b) un substantiv cu sau fara prepozitie: Helen is in town for the moment. They went home.

c) un substantiv in cazul genitiv precedat de o prepozitie: We buy bread at the bakerís.

d) o propozitie circumstantiala de loc: We do our shopping where everybody else does.

3.3. Locul Complementului circumstantial de loc este de obicei dupa predicat (+ complement direct) (+compl. circ. de loc):

She has been working (hard) IN THE LIBRARY all day.

She was been reading (a book) IN THE LIBRARY all day.


Complementul circumstantial de loc poate fi asezat intre verb si complementul sau direct daca complementul direct este prea lung sau este exprimat printr-o propozitie subordonata: They took into the reading room all the dictionaries they needed.

They found in the reading room all the dictionaries they needed.

Complementul circumstantial indicand locul propriu-zis poate aparea si la inceputul propozitiei, mai ales cand este exprimat printr-o constructie prepozitionala: Somewhere near the river the children were playing football.

Complementul circumstantial care indica directia se aseaza uneori direct dupa verb (inaintea adverbului de mod), daca verbul exprima miscarea spre un loc: He went to school by bus.

Cateva complemente circumstantiale exprimand directia pot aparea in pozitia initiala:

a) in limbajul literar, pentru a da forta dramatica exprimarii, cu verbe la prezent sau Past Tense simplu: In they come ! Away they went!

b) in exprimarea familiara, cu verbe ca go, come, get la prezent sau imperativ (+you): Here she comes. There they go. In (bed) you get.

Nota: Here si there apar in cateva expresii cu verbul be: Here/there you are. Poftim(Asta-i pentru tine). There she is. Uite-o! A ajuns. Here we are. Am ajuns in sfarsit (unde trebuia). There you are. Vezi ca am dreptate (Asta intareste ce-am spus).

Atentie! Daca subiectul in aceste expresii este exprimat printr-un substantiv si nu printr-un pronume, are loc inversiune intre subiect si predicat. There he is! There is your father! Here they are! Here are your glasses!

4. Complementul circumstantial de timp (The Adverbial of Time)

4.1. Definitie. Complementul circumstantial de timp indica:

a) momentul actiunii: now, nowadays, today, then;

b) o perifraza adverbiala de timp: They visit their grandparents from time to time.

c) o constructie adverbiala (substantiv/numeral cu prepozitie etc.): Tom was born in 1965.

2) o contructie complexa, utilizata pentru reducerea unei propozitii circumstantiale de timp la un complement circumstantial de timp;

a) nominativul absolut cu participiul trecut: His homework written the boy went out to play.

b) un participiu prezent sau trecut, precedat de o conjunctie temporala:

Nowadays si presently ocupa de obicei pozitia initiala: Nowadays all children of school-age attend school in Romania.

Daca intr-o propozitie apar mai multe complemente circumstantiale indicand momentul actiunii, acestea sunt asezate succesiv, de la perioada de timp mai scurta la cea mai lunga: He was born on Monday, the 19th of February 1970. Iíll see you at ten oíclock in Sunday.

sau: On Sunday Iíll see you at ten oíclock.

B) Complementele circumstantiale indicand succesiunea actiunilor ocupa de obicei pozitie initiala sau mediala in propozitie: First he rang the bell. Next he knocked on the door. He then rang again. And finnaly he started banging on the door.

Ordinea mai multor adverbe de frecventa definita este de la unitatea mai mica la cea mai mare: She phoned him hourly each day.

Adverbele de frecventa nedefinita: ussualy (de obicei) always (intotdeauna), sometimes (uneori, cateodata), occasionally (uneori, cateodata), often (adesea), never (niciodata), seldom (rar), sunt de obicei asezate intre subiect si predicat: I often go to the theatre.

Daca predicatul contine un verb auxiliar sau un verd modal, adverbul de frecventa este asezat dupa acesta: I have never seen her. You must always do your duty.

Adverbele de frecventa nedefinita se aseaza dupa verbul be, inaintea numeralului predicativ: He is often late.

Daca verbul este folosit la diateza pasiva, adverbul de frecventa nedefinita este asezat dupa primul auxiliar: He has never been seen like this.
