More examples of 被

Here are 2 more examples of 被 that I have found in my daily studying.


海綿寶寶(Spongebob Squarepants)

被切斷了

線被切斷了,好討厭哦

“The wire has been cut, how annoying.”(lit. very annoying)


龍騎士(Eragon)

Eragon bei

「在他身後,也就是鹿群之前待的地方,一大圈的樹和草都被燒焦了,許多松樹光禿禿的立著,在焦黑圈子外面的草都被壓平了。」

  1. 在…後: behind …
  2. 他身: his body
  3. 也就是: is also
  4. 鹿群: deer herd
  5. 之前: before
  6. : to stay (first tone)
  7. 地方: place
  8. 一大圈: a large ring, a large circle
  9. 樹和草: trees and grass
  10. : all
  11. 燒焦: to burn, to scorch
  12. 許多: many, a lot of
  13. 松樹: pine tree
  14. 光禿禿: bald, naked
  15. 立著: standing (站立著, but when object has no feet, you use 立著)
  16. 在…外面: outside of …
  17. 焦黑: burned black
  18. 圈子: circle, ring
  19. 壓平: to flatten

So literally this gives us, “Behind his body, is also previous deer herd staying place, a large circle of trees and grass all been burned, many pine trees nakedly standing, grass that is outside of burned black circle all been flattened.”

In normal English we have…

“Behind him, where the deer herd had just been, a large circle of trees and grass had been burned. Many pine trees stood bald and outside of the blackened circle the grass had been flattened.”

There you go, as requested a longer sentence from Eragon, as well as 3 real-life examples of 被. I hope you have enjoyed this post.^^
