Indicative Mood. (Изъявительное наклонение)

D. Read and learn Grammar topic.

Так же как, и в русском языке, в английском языке существует 3 наклонения:

  • Изъявительное наклонение (Indicative Mood)
  • Сослагательное наклонение (Subjunctive Mood)
  • Повелительное наклонение (Imperative Mood)

Изъявительное наклонение показывает, что говорящий рассматривает действие как реальный факт, предположение, желание, требование, побуждение, относящееся к настоящему, прошедшему или будущему:

My dad seldom makes pancakes. - Мой папа редко печёт блины. (говорящий полагает, что это факт)

Изъявительное наклонение выражает наличие или отсутствие объективного действия, в пределах того или другого времени.

Различные отношения субъекта к этому действию им не определяются и передаются уже другими наклонениями. Например:

I wish you luck. - Желаю тебе удачи. //Изъявительное наклонение

I wish I were you. - Жаль, что я - не ты. //Сослагательное наклонение

Дополнительные примеры предложений в изъявительном наклонении:

I have never been to London. (Present Perfect) - Я никогда не был в Лондоне.

I know you were studying at University of Cambridge for 4 years. (Present Indefinite & Past Continuous) - Я знаю, что ты 4 года училась в Кэмбриджском университете.
