1. 現在分詞當形容詞時,表示「令人…的」,過去分詞則表示「人感到…的」
The student raised a confusing question. (confusing 修飾 question)
The teacher was confused. (confused : 感到困惑的,當主詞補語修飾the teacher)

The boy was charmed with the girl’s elegance. (charmed 表示「對…感到著迷」)
He is graduated = He has graduated. (注意graduated 的用法,這兩種寫法都可以)


2. 還有一種很常見的情況,就是由關係子句簡化為分詞片語,修飾先行詞。

(= The man who is writing a letter at the desk is my cousin.)
A man named Smith comes to my store quite often.
(= A man who is named Smith comes to my store quite often.)

(=There are three patients who are waiting for the doctor.)

(There were many people who were stuck in the man.)


III.分詞當補語用:補語有兩種,修飾主詞的叫做「主詞補語」,會出現在這種句型中 S + V + S.C.。而修飾受詞的,是「受詞補語」,句型為S + V + O + O.C.,或者是with + O + O.C。
The experience is exciting. (exciting 當主詞補語)
He seems tired. (tired 當主詞補語)
He became more and more interested in learning English. (interested 當主詞補語)
I want it done right away. (done 是受詞補語,修飾it)

I found him killing a dog. (killing 是表主動的受詞補語,修飾him)
I found the dog killed by him. (killed 是表被動的受詞補語,修飾the dog)

He talked to me with his legs shivering. (這是with + O + O.C的句型,shivering是受詞補語)
He stood with his arms folded before him. (這也是with + O + O.C的句型,folded是受詞補語)
He sat there with his eyes closed. (這還是with + O + O.C的句型,closed是受詞補語,修飾eyes)


IV.分詞當名詞用:這就是我們所知道的the + adj. = Ns,這裡的分詞其實也是形容詞。
The wounded were rushed to the hospital.
(=The wounded people were rushed to the hospital.)
The unexpected has happened.
(=Something we didn’t expect has happened.)

He was exceeding/exceedingly glad to hear it. (exceeding可修飾glad)
