The word "being" has been used correctly in that sentence. The way it's used in that sentence isn't connected to the examples you gave in post #2. It simply refers to Janice's state (present or past). The sentence is in the passive voice. Does that help?While discussing the novel no comma here "Bridge to Terabithia", Eva asked her classmate about Janice (
thea character) being abused by her (Janice's) father.
Is my question about the use of the word
BEING"being" in this sentence clear?
