366. Small as it is, the ant is as much a creature as all other animals on earth.

英语四级译文:

蚂蚁虽小,但是它跟生活在地球上的其他所有生物是一样的。

四级词汇讲解:

本句中的small as it is意为“尽管它小”。这种“形容词+as”置于句首的结构通常表明此句是让步状语从句。如:

Tired as Mary was, she continued knitting till 6 in the morning.尽管玛丽很累,她还是一直织到早上6点。

英语四级考点归纳:

※ as much... as意为“与...一样的...”。如:

The atmosphere is as much a part of the earth as are its soil and the water of its lakes, rivers and oceans.大气是地球的一部分,就像土壤、湖泊、河流和海洋的水一样。

※ as much表示“也”。如:

I was not in the least surprised, for I had expected as much.我一点也不吃惊,因为我早已料到会有那样的事。
