例1:Animation(动画)means making things which are lifeless come
Alive and move. Since earliest times, people have always been fascinated by
movement. But not until this century we managed to capture movement, _______
to record it, and in the case of animation, to reinterpret it and recreate it.

解析:状语not until…提前,后面的主句主谓倒装,根据上下文和谓语managed可推断该句应为完成时。故在we 前加have。

拓展:部分倒装是指将谓语的一部分如助动词或情态倒装至主语之前。如果句中的谓语没有助动词或情态动词,则需添加助动词 do, does 或 did ,并将其置于主语之前。
句首为否定或半否定的词语,如 no, not, never, seldom, little, hardly, at no time, in no way, not until... 等。
EX1. Never have I seen such a performance.
EX2. Nowhere will you find the answer to this question.
EX3. Not until the child fell asleep did the mother leave the room.
  当 Not until 引出主从复合句,主句倒装,从句不倒装。

以否定副词开头并加状语的句子要求部分倒装。这些否定副词有barely, hardly, little, seldom, , never, no sooner…… than, rarely, no more, nor nearly, Not only...but also, Hardly/ Scarcely ...when, No sooner... than等以及only
EX1. Not only did he refuse the gift, he also severely criticized the sender.
EX2. Hardly had she gone out when a student came to visit her.
EX3. No sooner had she gone out than a student came to visit her.

例2:It is Western health-care system which are spending huge sums of ______
money on the surgical treatment of the disease.

例3:The boy wanted to play football in the street, but his mother told him not. ________

解析:这个是省略句,完整为The boy wanted to play football in the street, but his mother told him not to play football in the street。动词不定式的省略:在动词不定式结构中,为了避免重复,常常省略不定式结构中的动词原形,只保留to。所以应该在not后加个to

1. who -> that
本题强调的是状语in front of the religious leader,故引导词只能用that,并且不能省略。本题句意是:新郎、新娘通常就是一起站在宗教头领面前举行结婚。

这句when后省略了I was。

当only修饰的状语提前时,主句的主谓要倒装。故在he前加did。注:如果only修饰的是主语时,主谓不用倒装,例如:Only my sister can do this job.
