英语强调句式强调状语的五种类型知识点

时间:2018-09-23 英语知识 我要投稿

  一、所强调的状语为单个的副词

  能用于强调句被强调的副词不多,下面略举几例:

  It was here that he differed from an Englishman.

  他和英国人的不同就在于此。

  It was only then that I began to learn the unpalatable truth about John.

  直到那时我才开始了解到有关约翰的一些令人难以接受的实情。

  It was yesterday that my secretary sent the bill to Mr Harding.

  我的秘书是在昨天把账单送给哈丁先生的。

  二、所强调的状语为融词性短语

  所谓副词性短语,就是指起副词作用可用状语的短语,如last week, some time ago, three days later等。如:

  It was about 600 years ago that the first clock with a face and an hour hand was made.

  第一面带有一个钟面和一根时针的钟是在大约600年前制造的。

  It was only last February that he announced he would run for president.

  去年2月他才宣布自己将参加总统竞选。
