HQL常用句型
HQL常用句型  HQL相比于SQL添加了面向对象思想，包括封装、继承、多态。
1、Select/update/delete…… from …… where …… group by …… having …… order by …… asc/desc  2、  from User user where user.age=20;  from User user where user.age between 20 and 30;  from User user where user.age in(20,30);  from User user where user.name is null;  from User user where user.name like ‘%zx%’;  from User user where (user.age%2)=1;  from User user where user.age=20 and user.name like‘%zx%’;
3、 user 是User的一个实体对象  对user的更新操作（下述hql字符串所述）  Transaction trans=session.beginTransaction(); String hql=”delete from User user where user.age=18”; Query queryupdate=session.createQuery(hql); int ret=queryupdate.executeUpdate(); trans.commit();  查询实体对象user的部分属性  4、查询实体对象user的部分属性  List list=session.createQuery(“select user.name from User user ”).list();  5、count(),sum(),max(),min(),avg()等函数  String hql=”select count(user),user.age from User user group by user.age having  count(user)>10 ”;  List list=session.createQuery(hql).list();  6、group by，order by分组与排序功能  from User user order by user.name asc,user.age desc;
7、优化参数统计 inner join  From Customer c inner join c.orders o group by c.age; (1)  select c.ID,c.name,c.age,o.ID,o.order_number,o.customer_ID  　　from Customer c inner join c.orders c group by c.age; (2)  在开发统计查询系统时，尽量使用通过select语句写出需要查询的属性的方式来返回关系数据，而避免使用第一种查询方式返回持久化对象（这种方式是在有修改需求时使用比较适合），可以提高运行效率并且减少内存消耗。

动词不定式省略to的情况

主+谓+宾
谓语由动词构成，是英语时态、语态变化的主角，一般在主语之后，谓语是及物动词时，后接宾语，形成主谓宾结构。 例句 He made a speech.
主+谓
谓语是不及物动词，没有宾语，形成主谓结构。 表发生、出现的 take place, appear, happen, break out 例句 Many changes took place in my home town. 表来、去 come, go 例句 We come. The boy comes from America.
主+系+表
联系动词（link verb）包括 be动词：am, is, are, was, were, have been等; 感官动词：look, sound, smell, feel, touch, hear, see等; 例句 He looks well. It sounds nice. The egg smells bad. I feel good.
其他联系动词：become成为，turn变成
联系动词与其后的表语没有动宾关系，表语多为形容词或副词，当联系动词不是be动词，而其后的表语为名词或代词时，多表达”转变为“之意，注意与动宾关系的区别。 例句 He became a teacher at last. His face turned red.
主+系+表+宾（宾语从句）
这种句型很难分类，有时候感觉像原因状语从句，有时候像宾语从句。这类句子我们通常称为形容词宾语从句。
这类做表语的形容词有：afraid, sure, happy, glad, certain 例句： I am afraid this green dress is too small for me as well. I am glad that you can pass the exam. My flight is at 3 pm. I’m not sure whether i can catch it in time.
There be句型
句型“There + be + 主语 + 定语/状语/同位语”，用以表达在某处或某时“存在”某人某物。其中，there仅为引导词，没有实际意义，不可与副词”there那里“混淆;be和其后的主语在人称和数上保持一致，有时态和情态变化。例如 There is a boy there. 【翻译】那儿有一个男孩（前一个there无实意，后一个there为副词“那里”） There will be a meeting tomorrow. 【翻译】明天有场会议。 There used to be a well in the village. 【翻译】村里过去有一口井。 There is one stamp missing in your document. There are about 15% of the students thinking/who think that exam results are not important.【翻译】有大约15%的学生认为学习成绩不重要。
【注意】此句型有时不用be动词，而用live, stand, come, go, lie, remain, exist, arrive等不及物动词，如 There stands the Statue of Liberty at New York Harbour. 【翻译】自由女神像矗立在纽约港口。
There + be + 主语 + （for sb）to do
There are still many things for us to do.【翻译】我们还有很多事情要做。 There was a meeting to attend the next day.【翻译】第二天有场会议要参加。
There + be + 主语 + 现在分词
There were many students holding an opposite view.【翻译】很多学生持相反意见。 There’s a river flowing through the city.【翻译】有条河在这座城市里流过。
There + be + 主语 + 过去分词
There were trees planted by students all over the mountain.【翻译】满山都是学生们种的树。 There will be a ceremony intended to promote the sales.【翻译】将有场为促销而设的庆典。
There + be + 主语 + 定语从句/同位语从句
There are many people who don’t agree.【翻译】有很多人不同意。 There is a rule that all teachers should stay at school during working hours.【翻译】有条规定要求教师在工作时间里呆在学校。
不同时态、情态的there be句型
there used to be…… 【翻译】曾经有……（但现在没有了） there is/are going to be……【翻译】将有… there will be……【翻译】将有…… there has been……【翻译】已经有…… there happens to be……【翻译】碰巧有…… there seem（s）/appear（s） to be……【翻译】好像有…… there is/are likely to be……【翻译】很可能有…… there must be……【翻译】一定有……
it做形式主语 it做形式宾语
疑问句
一般疑问句
一般疑问句是疑问句的一种。它是指用“yes”或“no”来回答的句子。其结构是：系动词be/助动词/情态动词+主语+其他成分?如：Is this your pen?–Yes it is./No it isn’t. （1）将陈述句变为一般疑问句时，如句中有be 动词（am is are …）时，可直接将它们提至主语前。如主语为第一人称，应将其改为第二人称。如： I’m in Class 2 Grade 1.→Are you in Class 2 Grade 1? （2）陈述句中有情态动词（can may must …）时，也可直接将它们提至主语前，即可成为一般疑问句。 如：He can swim now.→Can he swim now? （3）陈述句中只有一个实义动词作谓语且其时态为一般现在时，变为一般疑问句时要在句首加“do”或“does” 主语后的实义动词用原形。如： I like these animals.→Do you like these animals? （4）其它情况下，陈述句变为一般疑问句时，只需要将助动词提至主语前，即可成为一个疑问句。 （5）一般疑问句一般读升调（↑） （6）一般疑问句有时不用“yes”或“no”回答。
特殊疑问句
以疑问词开头，对句中某一成分提问的句子叫特殊疑问句。常用的疑问词有疑问代词“what who whose which”和疑问副词“when where how why”。特殊疑问句有两种语序： 1．如疑问词作主语或主语的定语，即对主语或主语的定语提问，其语序是陈述句的语序：疑问词（+主语）+其他成分？如： who is singing in the room? whose bike is broken? 2. 如疑问词作其他成分，即对其他成分提问，其语序是：疑问词+一般疑问句语序？如： what class are you in? 注意：1．回答特殊疑问句时，不能用yes / no，即问什么答什么，尤其是简略回答。如： Who is from Canada? --Helen (is). 特殊疑问句一般读降调(↓)。
when 什么时间 问时间 （例句：when are you going home？） who 谁 问人 （例句 ：who is boy？） whose 谁的 问主人 （例句：whose is this？） where 在哪里 问地点 （例句：where were you yesterday ？） which 哪一个 问选择 （例句：which girl is Amy？） why 为什么 问原因 （例句：why？） what 什么 问东西 （例句：what did you do？） what time 什么时间 问时间 （例句：what time is it now?） what color 什么颜色 问颜色 （例句：what color is this？） what about 怎么样 问意见 （例句：What about a cuppa? ） what day 星期几 问星期 （例句：What day is it?） what date 什么日期 问具体日期 （例句：What’s the date today?） what for 为何目的 问目的 （例句：what for？） how… 怎么样 问情况 （例句：how are you？） how old 多大 问年龄 （例句：how old are you？） how many 多少 问数量 （例句：how many times？） how much 多少 问价钱 （例句：how much？） how about …怎么样 问意见 （例句：how about are you？） how far 多远 问路程 （例句：how far?） how soon 通常在一般将来时，意为"再等多长时间？"，“多长时间才……？” how long 问时间，用于for+一段时间或since+时间的一点；多长 how often 问频率 how wide 多宽 how （does/do)……（feel/smell/taste)询问感觉的句型
选择疑问句
选择疑问句提出两个或两个以上可能的答案供对方选择。这类疑问句有两种形式：一种是以一般疑问句的结构形式为基础，只是在语调上有所区别。这一类选择疑问句通常都是在前一个供选择的答案用低升调，后一个用降调；如果有两个以上供选择的答案，则在最后一个用降调，其余都用低升调。 Would you like a gin,or a whisky,or a’beer? 你是要喝杜松子酒，还是威士忌酒，还是啤酒？ 这种语调上的特征往往是区别选择疑问句和一般疑问句的重要标志。 另一种选择疑问句是以特殊疑问句的结构形式为基础的，也是在语调上有所区别。例如： Which vase shall I use,the short one or the tall one.
祈使句
祈使句（Imperative Sentence）是英语中的一个句式，也是用于表达命令、请求、劝告、警告、禁止等的句子。祈使句最常用于表达命令，因此在学校文法中也常称为命令句。
肯定结构
Do型(即：动词原形(+宾语)+其它成分)。如：Please have a seat here. 请这边坐。 有的祈使句在意思明确的情况下，动词可省略。如：This way, please. = Go this way, please. 请这边走。Be型(即：Be +表语(名词或形容词)+其它成分)。如：Be a good child! 要做一个好孩子!Let型(即：Let + 宾语 + 动词原形 + 其它成分)。如：Let me help you. 让我来帮你。
****exampleremarkGo and wash your hands.（去洗你的手。——命令）Be kind to our sister.（对姊妹要和善。——劝告）Watch your steps.（走路小心。——警告）Look out！Danger！（小心！危险！——强烈警告，已如感叹句）Keep off the grass.（勿践草坪。——禁止）Be quiet for a moment.【翻译】请安静一会.祈使句做表语从句I think the moral of the story is let the buyer beware.【翻译】我想这个故事的寓意是提醒购物者当心。You go and tell him, kris. （克立斯去告诉他。）祈使句也常把主语“You”表达出来，主要是强调对象，确定对象
否定结构
Do型和Be型的否定式都是在句首加don’t构成： 　　如： 　　Don’t forget me! 不要忘记我！ 　　Don’t make such a noise.不要这么吵。 　　Don’t be late for school! 上学不要迟到！（是系表结构——也就是没有行为动词但是有形容词的那种——就可以使用Don’t be，有行为动词的就不能这么用，只能用Don’t。）Let型的否定式有两种：“Don’t + let +宾语+动词原形+ 其它成分”和“Let + 宾语 + not + 动词原形 + 其它成分”。 　　如：Don’t let him go. / Let him not go. 别让他走。有些可用no开头,用来表示禁止性的祈使句。如：No smoking! 禁止吸烟！No fishing! 禁止钓鱼！
****exampleremarkDon’t eat in the classroom.【翻译】不要在教室里吃东西。Never judge a person by looks.【翻译】绝不能以貌取人。用否定副词never构成，以加强否定含义No parking.（禁止停车。——禁止）No eating or drinking.(禁止吃喝。——禁止)No littering.(禁止乱扔垃圾。——禁止)
相关口诀
祈使句无主语 ，主语you常省去； 动词原形当谓语，Don’t句首变否定； 朗读应当用降调，句末常标感叹号。
补语
英语补语的作用对象是主语和宾语,具有鲜明的定语性描写或限制性功能,在句法上是不可或缺的。补语是起补充说明作用的成份。最常见的是宾语补足语。名词、形容词、副词、不定式、现在分词、过去分词都可以在句子中作宾补。
主语的补语
宾语的补语
不定式(to do) 　　Our father will not allow us to play on the str-eet. 父亲不让我们在街上玩耍。 　　We believe him to be guilty. 我们相信他是有罪的。 　　We made him copy the sentence.我们让他再说一遍。(make+宾语+省略to的不定式) 　　He is made to copy the sentence.他再说了一遍。名词 　　At the meeting we elected him monitor.在会议上我们选他做班长。 　　I name my dog Pit.我叫我的狗Pit。形容词 　　What you said made Xiao Wang angry.你所说的使小王很生气。 　　I found the classroom empty.我发现教室里空无一人。副词 　　Please call the students back at once.请马上回电话给学生。 　　He was seen to take his cap off.他脱下他的帽子。现在分词 　　We hear him singing in the hall.我们听到他在大厅里唱歌。 　　I found him is lying in bed and sleeping.我发现他躺在床上，正在睡觉。过去分词 　　He saw his face reflected in the water.他看见他的脸映照在水里。 　　I heard it spoken of in the next room.我听到有人在隔壁房间里说起这事。
相关联系 1、主动语态中的宾语补足语，可以转化为被动语态中的主语补足语。 例如：They caught the boy stealing. （stealing 作为宾语补足语） 转化为被动语态 The boy was caught stealing. （stealing转化为主语补足语） 2、被动语态的主语补足语与主动语态的宾语补足语是密切相关的。例如： (1) I saw him playing basketball yesterday. (2) He was seen playing basketball yesterday. 句（1）中的含义不是我看见他，而是我看见他正在打篮球。playing basketball是宾语him的补足语。所以叫宾语补足语。 句（2）中的含义也不是他被看，而是别人看见他正在打篮球。这里的playing basketball是主语he的补足语，故称作主语补足语。主语和主语补足语一起称作复合主语。所以含有主语补足语的句子一般是被动语态，谓语动词是可以接复合宾语（宾语+宾语补足语）的及物动词。句首的主语就是主语补足语的逻辑主语。
宾语后的形容词状语与形容词补语
宾语后的形容词做状语
句义：形容词做谓语时，通常是以一种特殊形式表示的，即无动词形容词分句，它表示主句内容发生的状况或条件; 语法作用特征：若形容词是状语，可以将其转换成相应的状语从句，并且可以前置而不影响句义。
exampleremarkWe can drink it hot.I ate the meat cold.He sold his car new.【翻译】他趁汽车还新的时候，把它卖了。You can eat the vegetable raw.【翻译】你可以生吃这种蔬菜。They picked the apples ripe.【翻译】苹果熟了，他们采摘了。
宾语后的形容词做补语
句义：说明主句的谓语动词的结果，或说明宾语的属性，或是现状属性，或是结果属性
exampleremarkShe pushed the door open.I prefer coffee black.【翻译】我喜欢清咖啡。He pulled his belt tight.【翻译】他勒紧腰带。They knocked him cold.【翻译】他们把他打晕了过去。
在英语里，并非所有的动词后都能跟有形容词作宾语补语。能带这种结构的动词大概有两种： 现状动词（current verbs），如 believe find consider prefer
现状动词一般为静态动词，其宾语后的形容词表示宾语的状态或属性。形容词与宾语间有强化的述谓关系，补语前可以添加强动词的不定式“to be”或“as”，或将复合宾语变成that-从句，比如 I prefer coffee to be black.
结果动词（resulting verbs），如 get make paint wash drive
结果动词一般为动态动词，且具有“使役”意义，这类动词后虽然不能直接在其宾语与形容词间添加“to be”或将其转换为that-从句，但因其具有“使役”意义，我们可以借助cause…to be这一结构来表示宾语与形容词间的强化关系。如 They caused him to be cold by knocking him.
动词不定式
省略to的情况
情态动词( 除ought 外，ought to意思是“应该”，是情态动词，只有一种形式，后边接动词不定式，to不能省略。ought to没有人称和数的变化，后接动词原形可以表示现在、将来或过去将来，由时间状语或上下文决定。例如： They ought to come tomorrow.【翻译】他们明天应当来。使役动词（get除外，get sb to do sth.）let, have, make。例如： have(let, make) sb do sth. Once again, I would like to apologize for any inconvenience this has caused you and look forward to having you fly with us again.【翻译】我们再次就此事给您带来的不便向您道歉，希望您还能选择我们的航班！感官动词see,watch,look at,notice,observe,hear,listen to,smell,feel,find 等后作宾补，省略to。注意：在被动语态中则to 不能省掉。例如 I saw him dance. =He was seen to dance.表示个人意愿或倾向的would rather，had better，might(just) as well：rather than置于句首时。 Rather than ride on a crowded bus,he always prefers to ride a bike.

例子 It was yesterday that he met Li Ping.

2.
一般疑问句的
强调
句型

同上，只是把is/ was提到it前面。

例子 Was it yesterday that he met Li Ping?

3.
特殊疑问句的强调句型

被
强调部分（通常是
疑问代词或
疑问副词）+ is/ was + it + that/ who + 其他部分？

例子 When and where was it that you were born?

4.not … until …
句型的
强调句

A.
句型为：It is/ was not until + 被
强调部分 + that + 其他部分

普通句：He didn't go to bed until/ till his wife came back.

强调句：It was not until his wife came back that he went to bed.

B. 注意：

此
句型只用until，不用till。但如果不是
强调
句型，till, until可通用；因为句型中It is/ was not
... 已经是
否定句了，that后面的
从句要用
肯定句，切勿再用
否定句了。

5.
谓语动词的
强调

A. It is/ was
... that ...
结构不能强调
谓语，如果需要强调谓语时，用
助动词do/ does或did

Do sit down. 务必请坐。

Do be careful when you cross the street. 过马路时，务必（千万）要小心啊！

B. 注意：

此种
强调只用do/ does和did，没有别的
形式；过去时用did，后面的
谓语动词用
原形。

⒎
强调

强调部份+ that \ who +原句剩余部份

4语法结构编辑

强调句的十种
结构：

1．用
助动词“do（does/did）+
动词原形”来表示
强调：

Do write to me when you get there．你到那儿后务必给我来信。

2．用
形容词very，only，single，such等
修饰名词或形容词来加强语气：

How dare you buy such expensive jewels？你怎么敢买这么贵的宝石呢？

3．用ever，never，very，just等
强调：

I really don’t know what to do next．我的确不知道下一步该怎么做。

4．用in the world，on earth，at all等
介词短语可以表达更强的语气（常用于
疑问句）：

Where in the world could he be？他到底会在哪儿？

5．用
感叹句来表示强烈的
感情，
突出
说话人的
情感：

How interesting a story it is！这是一个多么有趣的故事啊！

6．用
重复来表示
强调：

Why！why！The cage is empty！啊！啊！箱子是空的。

7．用
倒装句（也就是将要
强调的句子或被
强调的部分置于句首）来加强语气：

On the table were some flowers．桌上摆着一些花。（
强调地点）

8．用强调
句型：“It is（was）+被强调的部分+that（who）+原句其它部分”来强调
说话人的
意愿：

It was on Monday night that all this happened．所有这一切发生在周一晚上。

9．用
If来表示
强调：

1）If
从句+I don’t know who/what，etc．does/is/has，etc．

主语部分也可以用nobody does/is/has，etc．或everybody does/is/has，et c．来
代替（这里的if
从句往往是
正话反说，
反话正说）：

If he can’t do it，I don’t know who can．要是他做不了这件事，我不知道还有谁能做。（
强调只有他能做） If Jim is a coward，everybody is．要是
吉姆是个胆小鬼，那么人人都是胆小鬼。（
强调吉姆不是胆小鬼）

2）if
从句+it be
主句（此用法可看成是第8中
强调
句型的变形，即把所要强调的内容放在it be的后面，把其它内容放在由if引导的从句中）：

If anyone knew the truth，it was Tom．如果说谁了解事实的真相，那便是
汤姆。

10．用
破折号、
黑体字也可以表示
强调，加强
语气：

It’s because of hard work—ten years of hard work．那是因为艰苦的工作--十年艰苦的工作！

He began the work in late May．他在五月底开始的这项工作。（
强调时间）

5注意事项编辑

that后的
强调句如果是
原因状语从句，从句只能用because引导，不能用since，as或why。

It was because the water had risen that they could not cross the river。

从句辨析
强调句将句子中的it is / was …that同时省去，句子仍然成立；而
主语从句将that与后面部分代替it，成立。如：

(1) It is Li Lei’s brother that you met in the street yesterday. 你昨天在街上所见到的就是
李蕾的兄弟。

本句若将It is 及 that同时省去为：You met Li Lei’s brother in the street yesterday. 句子同样成立，因此前面的句子是
强调
句型。

(2) It is exciting that we have succeeded in sending up Shenzhou V. 我们成功地发射了
神舟五号这件事情真令人兴奋。

本句若将It is 及 that同时省去为：We have succeeded exciting in sending up Shenzhou V. 显然句子错误，因此，前面句子不是
强调
句型，而是
主语从句。

与定语从句的比较

◎
强调句中的It没有实际意义，It be与that可同时被省略；而定语从句中的It是
主语，It be与that不可同时省略；

◎
强调
句型中be的
时态须跟后面句子的时态相一致；而定语从句中主句
谓语动词be的时态须由主句的时间确定

◎
强调句将句子中的that不能省略，并且即使前面的名词是事物时，也不能将that换成which；而
定语从句中的that作
宾语时可被省略，并且当
先行词是事物时可用which代替。

◎当it be后面的时间、地点名词作
主语、
宾语或
表语时，
引导词可用that / which；而作其他成分时，引导词须用when / which。如：

(1) It is an English book (that / which) I bought yesterday. 它是我昨天买的书。(本句是对What is that?问句的回答，that所引导的是
定语从句，that可被省略)

It was the English book that I bought yesterday. 昨天我所卖的就是这本书。(本句相当于对I bought the English book yesterday中an English book进行
强调)

(2) It was a room where we used to have meetings. 它是我们过去常在开会的房子。(where 所引导的
从句对前面的room进行说明，它是
定语从句)

It was in the room that we used to have meetings. 过去我们开会就在这间房子里。(in the room是被
强调的部分，本句是
强调
句型)

(3) It is a day when the people celebrate their victory. 这是人们庆祝他们的胜利的日子。 (when所引导的
从句对a day进行说明，是
定语从句)

It was on that day that people celebrated their victory. 就在那一天，人们庆祝了他们的胜利。(
强调on October 1, 1949)

与状语从句的比较

◎
状语从句句首的It本身就是句子的
主语；而
强调句首的It不作任何成分也没有实际意义。

◎状语从句的
连接副词that及句子前面的It be不能去掉

◎
状语从句的
引导词可以是when / where，而
强调
句型中的that不能用其他词代替。如：

(1) It is such an interesting book that we all like it very much. 它是一本如此有趣的书，我们大家都非常喜欢。(结果状语
主从复合句)

It is such an interesting book that we all like very much. 我们大家都非常喜欢的就是一本如此有趣的书。(
强调such an interesting book)

(比较：It is such an interesting book as we all like very much. 这就是我们大家都非常喜欢的有趣的书。定语从句)

(2) It was already morning when he woke up. 当他醒来时，已经是早晨了。(时间主从复合句)

It was the next morning that he woke up. 就在第二天早晨他醒来了。(强调the next morning)
