考研长难句第19句

【画龙点睛】

according to...为整句的状语。if引导的条件状语从句中,is to be known为将来时的被动语态。so引导的结果状语从句中,had best意为“最好”,其后直接跟动词原形。


卧虎藏龙

1、apparent

apparent本来的意思是看起来像是,暗中包含的意思就是其实不一定如此。但是在实际使用中,它又获得了显然(是真的)这个含义。结果是两个几乎相反的含义都同时被人们使用着。It is apparent that Walt is going. 既可以表示瓦尔特显然要走了,也可以表示表面看来瓦尔特要走。为了避免歧义,表示显然时,最好改用evident,表示表面看来时,最好改用it seemsapparent(ly)往往有看起来明明这样,而其实未必这样的含意,如 The prime minister resigned for the apparent reason that his health was failing,就是说在表面上因为身体不好而辞职,实际也许另有原因。往往和 real(ly) 对比,如 apparent rather than real(表面上的而不是真实的)。
