英语四级高分必备500关键句第364期:完型语法(364)

发表时间:2017-10-30内容来源:VOA英语学习网

364. Many patients insist on having watches with them in hospital, even though they have no schedules to keep.

英语四级译文:

很多病人坚持在住院期间戴表,即便他们并没有计划安排。

四级词汇讲解:

insist on意为“坚持”,后面通常接名词。如:

I must insist on more regular hours.我必须坚持按时起居。

此外,insist on后面还可以接“人称代词的所有格+动词-ing形式”:如:

I insist on your taking immediate action to put this right.我坚决要求你立刻采取行动,把事情处理好。

此时,insist on表达的含义相当于insist that...,只是后者所接的宾语从句应用虚拟语气。如上句可以改写为:

I insist that you(should)take immediate action to put this right.

英语四级考点归纳:

even though意为“即使”,可以引导让步状语从句。除此之外,引导让步状语从句的连接词还有:although, though, even if, however, whatever, whenever, whoever, whichever。如:

※ Even though I hadn't seen my classmate for many years,I recognized him immediately。虽然多年没有见过我的同学,我还是立刻认出了他.:_.

※ Although/Though I gave him some advice, he didn't take them,尽管我给了他一些建议,他并没有采纳:

※ John continued to work hard even ifleven though he felt sick.虽然感觉不舒服,约翰仍然坚持努力工作。
