>Materi Bahasa Inggris: The Verb Need

>“The boy needs cutting his hair” or The boy needs to cut his hair”……?

Kata kerja need diikuti infinitive / to verb hanya jika subjeknya benda hidup. Tapi jika subjeknya benda mati maka kata kerja need diikuti oleh gerund (verb ing) atau diikuti oleh “to be + past participle (Verb 3)”

A. Subjek benda hidup + infinitive

* John and his brother need to paint the house.

* My friend needs to learn Spanish

* He will need to drive

B. Subjek benda mati + verb ing (to be+ past participle)

* The grass needs cutting. OR The grass needs to be painted.

* The television needs repairing. OR The television needs to be repaired.

* The composition needs rewriting. OR The composition needs to be written.

“Perhatikan”, kita menggunakan “in need of” dengan aturan berikut.

Subject + be + in need of + noun


For examples

Jill is in need of money. (Jill needs money)

The roof is in need of repairing. (The roof needs to be repaired.)

The organization is in need of volunteers. (The organization needs volunteers.)
