    English-French dictionary > afraid

  • 12 afraid

    a (тк. предикативно) 1. испуганный: to be afraid of smth, smb — бояться чего-либо, кого-либо; to be afraid for smb — бояться за кого-либо; to be afraid to do smth — испытывать страх перед чем-либо, бояться что-либо сделать; to be afraid of doing smth — бояться, что что-либо произойдет; 2. вежливая форма отказа (извинения) в конструкциях типа I am afraid not (1). Afraid относится к прилагательным, которые употребляются только предикативно, т. е. не могут стоять перед существительным. Русские атрибутивные сочетания типа испуганный ребенок (взгляд) и т. д. соответствуют в английком сочетаниям с прилагательным frightened: a frightened child (look). (2). Afraid может употребляться в конструкции с инфинитивом to be afraid to do smth и с герундием to be afraid of doing smth. Конструкция to be afraid of doing smth обычно обозначает какое-либо нежелательное, неожиданное событие, не зависящее от воли говорящего:

    I am afraid of falling (crashing, making mistakes, etc.)

    и подразумевает нежелание говорящего, чтобы это произошло. (3). Для усиления прилагательного afraid, употребляется наречный оборот very much, наречие степени very с прилагательным afraid не сочетается:

    He was very much afraid.

    (4). Русское испугаться, почувствовать страх передается сочетаниями to be afraid и to be (to get) frightened. Существительное fear страх в таких ситуациях с глаголом to feel не употребляется. (5). Конструкция I'm afraid 2. часто употребляется для вежливого отказа, сообщения неприятных новостей:

    I'm afraid I can't help you — Сожалею (боюсь, что), но не могу вам помочь.

    (6). Конструкции I'm afraid not и I'm afraid so часто употребляются в кратких ответах, чтобы избежать повторения придаточного с that:

    Can I take your paper? I'm afraid not — Можно мне взять вашу газету? Сожалею, но нельзя (боюсь, что нет).

    He is leaving very soon, isn't he? I'm afraid so — Он ведь скоро уезжает? К сожалению, да.

    (7). Подобно прилагательному afraid, ряд прилагательных подчиняются общему для них грамматическому правилу: они употребляются только предикативно и требуют для усиления наречного оборота very much. К ним относятся alike, alive, alone, ashamed:

    They were very much alike — Они очень похожи.

    (8). See very, adv. (9). See adjective (7). (10). See ill, a; asleep (1); alive, a (2).
