    BE????????? Request help from Experts

    Dear Teacher,

    I always feel problem in using words like Being, to be and have. Can you please explain me the following in detail. I have given my comments also, please check whether I am wrong or right.l


    1. If you approve, I can take the evening flight and be there.
    2. Let there be schools with openhearted entrance.

    Why [b]“be”[b] is used in 1 & 2. Pls. explain my in detail. As per my knowledge it shows in existence of person in Sr No. 1 and schools in Sr. No.

    Can you please add on above explaination ?

    3. I wanted to have discussions with you but you not being available I had preliminary discussion with Dr. X.

    4. Prior to being parsed, each record looks like a single text to Excel.

    In 3rd, being is added because word available is adjective and it requires being. Am I right ? But why TO BE is not used.

    In 4th, "being" is a gerund gives the answer of “Doing this” Am I right?

    Please add further if I can be benefited.

    5. Be Sure to press Escape or click the Cancel button.

    I don’t know why Be is added in this. Why being is not added here ?

    6. Swami Sivananda explained “When we are unable to solve a problem, be it personal or scientific, we should tell our subconscious mind to do it for us.

    I don’t know why Be is added in this.


    7. Who was the first person to be awarded Oscar Award.

    I don’t know why TO Be is added in this. I think it is a passive voice.

    8. Even today certain parts of the Northeast continue to be affected by floods.

    I don’t know why TO Be is added in this.

    9. To some God is peace, to others, Light and Love. Some find meaning in music, others, in work. Worldwide, people need to be awakened to the presence of the Divine within.

    I don’t know why TO Be is added in this.

    10. How was the day being ?

    I don’t know why being is added.

    11. You were not been there.

    I don’t know why been is added.

    Re: BE????????? Request help from Experts

    Rajan, I have already answered this (please, check your email), so I'll wait for someone else to come along and provide you with a different view.

    Please note, the reason you haven't attracted responses yet might be because your topic is a difficult one.

    Re: BE????????? Request help from Experts

    Dear Sir,


    In your explaination, I could not understand the following :

    4. Prior to being parsed, each text look like........

    You said it is an adjective. I could not understand How ? Because if we do a gerund test. It will answer

    Prior to Doing this,.......... Answer Prior to being parsed.......

    7. Who was the first person to be awarded Oscar Award.

    If here we apply Gerund Test. Can It work ? Confusion arises where this test needs to perform ?.

    Regards

    4. Prior to being parsed, each text look like . . . .

    "Prior to being parsed" modifies the subject "each text":

    EX: Each test, prior to being parsed, looks like . . . .


    7. Who was the first person to be awarded an Oscar Award?

    Replacement Test
    Who was the first person *doing this? (ungrammatical)
