He is gone. I have heard this many times in Cricket commentary. What does it mean? I think "He has gone".
Is it passive voice or "gone" is adjective in present tense? likewise
I was born.
I am interested. These sentence also passive or "born and interested? adjective?
I don't watch cricket very often (fortunately!) but I have heard "He's gone" used by the commentators to reflect that a batsman is out. I'm with 5jj in that, as far as I'm concerned, the "He's" is a shortened form of "He has" not "He is". Are you certain that you have heard the commentators say those full three words - "He is gone"?
