1. 表示主观上的“想要”“希望”,是一种有意识的行为,其后可直接跟不定式,但不能跟动名词。如:

That’s what I want to know. 这是我想知道的。

He wanted to find a place to hide. 他想找一个地方躲藏。


Do you want me to post it for you? 要我给您寄出去吗?

Don’t you want someone to go along with you? 难道你不想什么人和你一道去?


We don’t want you getting into trouble. 我们不想你遇到麻烦。

I don’t want women meddling in my affairs. 我不希望女人干预我的事。

有时还可接过去分词的复合结构,表示希望某事被做了,此时通常可视为过去分词省略了to be。如:

I want the letter (to be) posted at once. 我想把这信马上寄走。

We don’t want anything said about this. 我们希望不要再谈起这事了。

2. 表示客观上的“需要”“有必要”,是一无意识行为,其后可接不定式或动名词,但要注意:后接动名词,该动名词要用主动形式表示被动意义;后接不定式,要用被动形式表示被动意义。如:


正:The plants want watering every day.

正:The plants want to be watered every day.

误:The plants want being watered every day.

误:The plants want to water every day.

3. 在口语中 want to do sth 有时可表示 should do sth 的意思。如:

You want to see the doctor at once. 我应该马上去看医生。

The work wants to be done with great care. 这工作需要非常仔细地做。

4. 过去分词wanted有两个值得注意的用法:一是表示“被通缉的”,二是表示“被征求的”。如:

Mick Clark is wanted for questioning by the police. 米克·克拉克被警方通缉审问。

Wanted, accommodation for a young married couple. 征租,供年轻夫妇的住房。

Secretary wanted:previous experience essential. 招聘秘书:须有经验。
