The use of “it”(I)


He found it difficult to stop smoking

I think it best that you should do more exercise.

She thought it no good worrying about him

1.It 用作形式宾语
当不定式(短语)、动名词(短语)或从句在句子中作宾语时,为 保持平衡,避免句式结构的混乱,常用it作形式宾语,而将真正的宾 语放在句尾。此时it只起引导作用,无意义。

S + v + it+


(for sb) to do sth.. +


doing sth


Sentence patterns:

… … find possible 1. S+ think + it + necessary +( for sb. ) to do sth. /clause. feel important … …

a rule 2. S+ V + it + one’s duty + ( for sb. ) to do sth. /clause an honour … 3. S + V + it + no good + doing sth. no use

found it difficult (1) They ________________(发觉…… 难) to finish their work in two days.
think it our duty (认为……是我们的 (2) We ________________ 职责) to clean our classroom every day. for her (对她来说) to (3) It is important _______ come to the party.

作形式宾语( Preparatory Subject )
为了记忆方便我们把该句型总结为"6123结构"。 6指主句中常用的动词:think,believe,make,find, consider,feel; 1指的是形式宾语it; 2指的是宾补的两种形式:形容词或名词; 3指的是真正宾语的三种形式:不定式短语,动名词短语 或从句。

We think it our duty to clean our classroom every day. He felt it important learning English well. They found it difficult that they would finish their work in two days.

4.It 作形式宾语的特殊用法

1>. 某些表示“喜、怒、哀、乐”的动词, 如like, enjoy, love, hate, dislike, appreciate等 后往往不能直接接宾语从句; 必须先由it担任形式宾语,再接从句.

We would much appreciate it if you could do us that favour. 要是你们能帮我们这个忙,我们将非常感激。
I'd prefer it if I didn't have to finish the work. 要是我不必完成那项工作,那就太好了。


2>.某些含有介词的动词短语如see to, depend on, answer for, rely on, insist on, look to, stick to 等结构中往往不能直 接接宾语从句;必须先由it担任形式宾语,再 接从句.

I'll see to it that everything is ready in time. 我将负责按时做好一切准备。

You may depend on it that Tom will help you with your English.(你放心,汤姆会帮助你学英语的。)
I’m counting on it that you will come. 我指望着你会来。

It 作形式主语

2. It 用作形式主语
当不定式(短语)、动名词(短语)或从句在某个句子中作主语时, 为保持句子结构前后平衡,避免头重脚轻,因此常用it作形式主语 置于句首,而将真正的主语放在句尾。此时it只起先行引导作用, 本身无词义。

adj It be + n p.p +

(for/of sb) to do sth 主语从句 doing sth

1. It+ be +adj.+主语从句

注意:如若形容词为 important / necessary, good/wrong natural...表达一种要求,命令或者责备时,多使用虚

拟语气(should +V).但是如果只是表示陈述一个事 实而不是强烈的感情,完全可以用一般的陈述语气。 不过考试建议你还是多用虚拟语气

5. It + be + 形容词 + (for sb.)+ 动词不定式

这类句型常用形容词easy, difficult, hard, important, possible,wise等作表语,有时候为了强调不定式动作 的执行者,常在不定式前加for sb,译为“对某人来说 做某事怎么样”如: It’s necessary for the young to master two foreign language.
