小测验 — 表示对照关系的从句


在英语中,如果想对两个形成鲜明反差的陈述句进行对比,则应使用表示对照关系的从句。比如,在这类句子的句首和句中可以使用词组 “although” 或 “even though”。在突出强调两件事情的差别非常大时,词组 “even though” 的语气要比 “although” 更强。近义词 “though” 可用于句首、句中或句尾,与其它的连接词相比,它的正式程度较低。另外,也可以用词组 “despite” 和 “in spite of” 做对比,两者意思相同,都表示 “尽管、不论……”,后通常接名词、动名词或 “the fact that…”。做八道题,巩固对照关系的从句中连接词的用法。
