【閱讀花傻傻】 TOEIC天書其實有跡可循

閱讀時除了假主詞和形容詞子句會來亂之外,還有倒裝句也會教人「丈二金剛」 (令人摸不著頭緒)。


底下就列出幾個倒裝例句來跟大夥討論討論。


Should emergencies happen during the flight, keep calm and follow flight attendants instructions.


在英文中假設語氣的正式用法會將 should 放到句首並且替代 if 使用

底下看看原句,大概就會比較能了解意思了。


If emergencies happen during the flight, keep calm and follow flight attendant instructions.

Should 代表了萬一的意思,放在句首並且替代了 if。




Not until that moment, did I realize that we ran the cash too low in our account.


原句是:

I didn’t realize that we ran the cash too low in our account until that moment.




Without further ado, let us welcome Dr. Aye and her speech.


原句是:

Let us welcome Dr. Aye and her speech without further ado.


Without further ado被拉到開頭有兩個用意。

一是強調,二是把without further ado拉得離 welcome 近一點。


經過解釋後,有沒有比較理解閱讀的狀況了呢?
