第60课:

觉得这篇文章是背诵的好文章。
1、Punctuality is a necessary habit in all public affairs of a civilized society.
    开头就很平铺的说出了文章要说的内容,而且不觉得做作。。对比俺写文章。。绞尽脑汁想出来的句子,和后面又连不上。。蛮突兀的,而且,punctuality 可以用在阐述character方面的例子。


2、Without it, nothing could ever be brought to a conclusion; everything would be in a state of chaos.
    这几天研究NEC, 发现其实他们蛮喜欢用这种双重否定的。。或者说 是用本身就带否定意味的词来表达,什么not donot。。出现得不多。而且,是我们chinese喜欢用的排比句式。。。同时,这个句子MS是个虚拟。。。

3、Only in a sparsely-populated rural community is it possible to disregard it.
    这三句话是连一起的,所以说这篇文章推荐背诵。三个句子,都是看起来很小儿科的句子,单词句式都会,但是觉得很自然地,第一句陈诉观点,第二句虚拟假设相反情况,到第三句又很自然地用倒装来说也有少量情况出现。。。反思俺写文章,都是心血来潮在前面一堆类似句式中突然冒一个其他的句式,多变的目的是达到了,但是一点都不灵活。。。— —|

4、He is therefore forgiven, if late for a dinner party.
    if引导的条件状语后置,其实这更多的符合欧美人的表达习惯,后面看到的很多句子,都和我们一般写出来的不一样。我们一般写 if...,he...,或者When..., he....

5、But people are often reproached for unpunctuality(又是一个直接表示否定意义的词) when their only fault is cutting things fine.
    推荐背的是 cutting things fine 这个词组——卡得太紧
    句子意思是:但人们则常常仅仅由于将时间安排得太紧而引起不准时受到指责。
    如果让我们来写这个句子的话:
    But people are often blamed just because they have arranged their agandas too heavy to be punctuality.— —|

6、The over-punctual can be as much a trial to others as the unpunctual.
     感觉很利索的过渡,直接把话题转移到另外一个方面,说提前太早到达其实和不按时是一样让人恼火的。。
     as much a trial to others as。。觉得这个句子蛮经典的。。很明白地说出了早到也是对人的一种折磨。。。

7、Although being early may mean wasting a little time, this will be less than if you miss the train and have to wait an hour or more for the next one; and avoid the frustration of arriving at the very moment when the train is drawing out of the station and being unable(又是。。) to get on it.
      个人蛮喜欢用的一种让步的句子.但是又不是单纯的表示让步,其实是2个并列的句子,同时做了另外一种情况的比较,觉得就说服力雄厚起来。
      同时几个单词觉得蛮好:drawing out of the station 一般都会说 about to leave, take off,...
                                       very,这个词用在这里感觉就是正好掐在那一个让人觉得很闷郁的关键点
                                       avoid the frustration 动词的名词形式,记得论坛上有篇蛮经典的帖子就是说 名词化趋势,把表达句子中心意思的词尽量用名词表达
                                       be unable to ..比couldn't, failed to, not successful。。这些用滥的会不会要好一点,而且 这个更多的就是强调事情有没有做成功

8、An even harder situation is to be on the platform in good time for a train and still to see it go off without you.
      without..是使用频率很高的词,而且这个是介词短语做补语。这个句子是跟着上面的句子更进一步推进,加强后果的严重性。。

9、She entered the station twenty minutes before the train was due, since her patents had imressen upon her that it would be unforgivable to miss it and cause the friends with whom she was going to stay to maike two journeys to meet her.
    since引导的从句再嵌套一个宾语从句,之下还有一个限定性的定语从句,结构蛮复杂,但是句子意思表达却相当清晰。。

10、She felt in her handbag fot the piece of paper...
      表达,使用的单词 feel。。一般我们写做习惯:She searched in her bag for the piece of paper..

11、The girl, tear streaming down her face, begged to be allowed to slip into the guard's van.
      那个 tear streaming down her face 觉得这个状语用得蛮好的。。。
