    Default Re: Question about Being ?

    It basically suggest that something is unfinished or of short duration:
    It is being done now- unfinished
    You are being unreasonable- you are not always unreasonable, but at the moment you are
    It can also be used to descibe a quality or characteristic:
    Being English, I write 'colour' not 'color'.
