Used to, Would, dan Past Simple: : Penggunaan dan Contoh Kalimat

Penggunaan Used to, Would, dan Past Simple

Used to (phrasal modal), would (modal), dan past simple sama-sama dapat digunakan untuk menyatakan aksi yang dilakukan berulang kali di masa lampau (repeated past actions).


Used to dan would tidak digunakan pada aksi yang hanya terjadi satu kali di masa lampau, namun past simple dapat digunakan untuk tujuan tersebut. Selain untuk menyatakan kebiasaan di masa lampau, used to dapat pula untuk menyatakan keadaan di masa lampau (past states) seperti past simple.
