このwouldの役割

自殺の名所でおじさんがとった行動です。The old man made it a habit to survey the cliff and if he'd notice anyone acting suspicious, he'd come over and talk to that person. ここで使われている(省略されている)wouldはどのような役割でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

>The old man made it a habit to survey the cliff and if he'd notice anyone acting suspicious, he'd come over and talk to that person. 「その老人は、断崖を調べて回ることを習慣としていて、もし誰かが疑わしい行為をしていることに気づくと、やって来てその人に話しかけたものです。」 >ここで使われている(省略されている)wouldはどのような役割でしょうか? ⇒「省略されている」のでなく、短縮されているwouldのことですね? この2つのwouldは、いずれも「やや不規則な過去の習慣」を表す用法で、「よく~したものだ」と訳されます。(ご存知のように、「規則的な過去の習慣」を表す場合はused toを使いますね。)

  • Would について

    日本昔話で、英語を勉強するという本を見ています。 Wouldが度々出てくるのですが、どんな時にWouldを使うのかが分かりません。 辞書には、Willの過去形、と書いてあります。 例えば、 The Old man Would go into mountain to gather frewood.He Would then sell it in town For a living.. WouldがWillの過去形だとすると、おじいさんは、山へしばかりに行き、それを町で売って暮らしていました。のどの部分にWoudlが当たるのでしょうか。 Willは、~するつもりだ。という意味だと、Wouldは~するつもりだった。ですよね。 上記のような訳になるのが分かりません。 もう一つ、例を出すと His wife would always make yummy rece balls. これも、おばあさんはいつも美味しいおにぎりをつくってくれます。と訳には書いてありますが、 なぜ、Wouldが付いているのか分かりません。 どなたか、Wouldについて詳しい方、ご回答よろしくお願いいたします。

  • catch himself

    My father had an ulcer that became infected. It was relatively simple to cure but he refused to believe the doctors. Instead he diagnosed himself with some sort of virus. He stopped taking his medicine. He created his own ointments instead. He’s very intelligent so his reasoning could sound very convincing. It was hard to identify when it crossed the line into mental illness. But the infection never healed. He went from surfing and swimming every day to barely being able to walk. He aged twenty years. And still he refused to go to a doctor. He’d isolate himself from anyone who challenged him. When he finally collapsed and was admitted to a hospital, the doctors said he had the lowest red blood cell count they’d ever seen. Only then did he accept that things were out of his control. He’s much healthier now. He’s almost back to normal. He’ll occasionally fall into the old script of defending his actions, but he manages to catch himself. catch himselfはどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします
