School / the school, prison / the prison etc. Unit 75

Unit 75

School / the school, prison / the prison etc.


(a) Рассмотрите пример со словом prison:


Jack robbed a bank.

He was caught by the police.

He is in prison now.

His wife Jill goes to the prison to visit him.

She was in the prison yesterday.

Кто-то садится в тюрьму (to prison) или находится

в ней (in prison), если он преступник. Но Jill не

преступница. Она не в тюрьме (in prison). Jill

ходит туда в качестве посетителя (там находится

ее муж).


(b) Следующие слова употребляются по такому же

принципу: hospital university school church


Мы говорим, что преступник отправился

to prison (но не 'to the prison'). Ребенок

ходит to school, студент to university. Мы

не употребляем the, когда имеем в виду эти

места как общие понятия, то, для чего они




общее понятие мест

конкретное место

I left school and went to university. (как студент)

This lady goes to church every day.

(на службу)

Jack had a heart attack.

He is in hospital now.

(как пациент)

Will you show me the university?

(само строение)

We went to the church to take a photo.

Jack’s daughter is at the hospital.

(как посетитель)


Запомните: in prison и at school/ university / college.

Со словом сhurch возможно употреблять оба предлога:

in church и at church.
