每日一句Day 62 | 核心词带背第12天

前言

Aloha,大家好,我是大家的考研英语老师田静。我们开始今天的长难句学习吧~

 

句子

Though typically about two inches taller now than 140 years ago, today’s people—especially those born to families who have lived in the U.S. for many generations—apparently reached their limit in the early 1960s.

【2008 Text 3】

 

生词

✅ typically /ˈtɪpɪkli/ adv. 通常,一般;代表性地,典型地,作为特色地

✅ especially /ɪˈspeʃəli/ adv. 特别;尤其

✅ generation /ˌdʒenəˈreɪʃn/ n. 一代人,同代人,同辈人

✅ apparently /əˈpærəntli/ adv. 显然地,表面上

✅ apparent /əˈpærənt/ adj. 显然的,表面上的

✅ reach limit 达到极限

 

分析

找谓语动词:have lived/reached

断开:who

简化:去掉非核心的连词、副词、名词词组、介词短语、限定词和插入语

 

翻译

尽管现在(美国人)普遍比 140 年前高了大约 2 英寸,但是如今的美国人——特别是那些出生于已经在美国生活了好几代的家庭中的那些人——在 20 世纪 60 年代早期明显达到了他们的(身高)极限。

 

语法重点

✅ 断开长难句:

根据连接词who,可以把句子断开为2段。

【句1】主句:Though typically about two inches taller now than 140 years ago, today’s people — especially those born to families … — apparently reached their limit in the early 1960s.

【句2】定语从句:who have lived in the U.S. for many generations

✅ 分裂结构:

句中两个破折号中间隔开的especially those born to families who have lived in the U.S. for many generations,作插入语,造成了主句的分裂。

✅ 简化主句:

简化前:Though typically about two inches taller now than 140 years ago, today’s people — especially those born to families … — apparently reached their limit in the early 1960s.

简化后:… people …reached … limit …
