2) The team captain hopes to select Kevin.

3) Alan is talking Kathy to the station.
-> Kathy is beeing talked to the station by Alan.

4) Somebody has described Keith Jones as the greatest guitarist.

5) They will appoint a new managing director next week.

6) They demolished the old building in only two days.

7) People have accused the local council of corruption.
-> The local council of corruption has been accused by people.

8) The farmers have planted the fields with cotton.

9) Somebody will spray the walls with green paint.

So, ich hoffe ich kann mit reinem Gewissen den Grammatikteil abhaken. Vielen dank und einen schönen Abend noch.

Wow, diese Sätze sind aber schwierig! Englisch ist meine Muttersprache und ich habe es schwer gefunden!

1) Peter's question began to irritate Michael.
-> Michael was begun to irritate by Peter's question.
-> Michael had begun to be irritated by Peter's Questions.

2) The team captain hopes to select Kevin.
-> Kevin is hoped to select by the team captain.
-> It is hoped by the team captain that Kevin will be selected.

3) Alan is talking Kathy to the station.
Ich glaube, dass dieser Satz eigentlich "Alan is taking Kathy to the station" sein soll. Falls ich recht habe, dann...
-> Kathy is beeing talked to the station by Alan.
-> Kathy is being taken to the station by Alan.

5) They will appoint a new managing director next week.
-> A new managing director will be appointed next week by them.
-> A new managing director will be appointed by them next week. Klingt mir besser.

6) They demolished the old building in only two days.
-> The old building was demolished in only two days by them.
-> The old building was demolished by them in only two days. Wie beim vorherigen Satz.

7) People have accused the local council of corruption.
-> The local council of corruption has been accused by people.
-> The local council has been accused of corruption by people.

10) The south coast continues to attract tourists.
-> Tourists are continued ti attract by the south coast.
-> Tourists continue to be attracted by the south coast.

Ich hoffe meine Antwort hilfreich ist. Wenn du Erklärungen möchtest, dann bitte gib mir Bescheid.

Grüße,

Morgan

-> A new managing director will be appointed by them next week. Klingt für mich2 besser.

6) They demolished the old building in only two days.

Das ist nicht nur besser, sondern auch richtiger.


1 - Alternativ würde ich hier "und ich fand es schwer" sagen. Die Variante mit "habe gefunden" würde ich in diesem speziellen Fall auch Umgangssprachlich nicht sagen.

2 - Das Verb klingen kann kein indirektes Objekt erhalten.
You're never too old to learn something stupid.
MistakeSuggestionYou sure that's right?
