PART III The  Lesson

USING CONNECTIVES IN CONVERSATXON
• 怎样在谈话中使用起连接作是的调语
下列词语在会话中可以起连接作用。这些词语有助于谈话顺利进行。有的可以用来填补空当儿,有的可以用来进一步说睨意思。

IN FACT
为了加强前面一句话,可以用洫fact引出一句话,对有关话题进一步提供情况。
in fact引出的这句话往往更为具体生动。
I had to take my son to soccer practice.
In fact, we went to the Grand Final as well.I bought some rice,
In fact,I bought four kilos.

MIND YOU
用来引出一句话,对前砸一句话加以限制,以免造成误解,或引起争论。
One day of soccer's enough for me.Mind you, always enjoy it.
BY THE WAY(参看第8讲)
用来引出新的话题。有时可以与前面一句话相关联(见下面第一个例子),有时只表示“顺便提到一件事”,和前面的话并不相干(见下面第二个例子)。
1)  Everyone likes Brett Watson.By the.way, he's just written a book about soccer.
2)  A: Wasn't  the weather great yesterday?
B: Yes,it certainly was.
A: Oh, by the way,did you see that Chinese film last night?

I MEAN(参看第22讲)
如果你觉得没有把意思说清楚,就可以用这个短语引出一句话,补充新的内容,加以说明。
I don't think I'll sit with you two on Mondays. I mean all I hear is soccer, soccer,soccer!

I MUST SAY
这个短语可以使对方注意下面的话是比较强调的。Well, I must say the Grand Final was exciting.

YOU KNOW(参看第1讲)
这个短语可以使说话人略有停顿,以便考虑下面的话怎样说。
My boy thinks Watson is...er...you know...marvellous.
