5 不定式和动名词作表语的区别

Mr Titterton is chairman of the Omega Ensemble but has been the group’s official page turner for the past four years. His job is to sit beside the pianist and turn the pages of the score so the musician doesn’t have to break the flow of sound by doing it themselves. He said he became just as nervous as those playing instruments on stage.

请问文中作表语的不定式 to sit beside the pianist…可以换成动名词 sitting beside the pianist…吗?请不要简单地回答可以或不可以,我希望有词典的例句作支持。谢谢。

完全可以。

One’s job作主语时,若其后的表语是动词,通常用不定式:

My job is to take the dog for a walk. 我的工作是遛狗。

Her job is to assist the head chef. 她的工作是为主厨打下手。

Your job is to supervise the building work. 你的工作是监理建筑工程。

My job is to deal with enquiries from the public. 我的工作是解答公众的询问。

His job is to make minor repairs on all the machines. 他的工作是给所有的机器作些小维修。

One’s job作主语时后面的表语有时也用动名词(但不如用不定式普通):

Her job is raising pigs. 她的工作是养猪。(张道真英语语法)

His job is tuning the piano. 他的任务是给钢琴调音。(张道真英语语法)

My job is selling insurance. 我的工作是推销保险。(朗文多功能词典)

Her job is restoring old paintings. 她的工作是修复旧画。(牛津高阶第6版)
