  既昂贵又受罪

  When a plane from London arrived at Sydney airport, workers began to unload a number of wooden boxes which contained clothing. No one could account for the fact that one of the boxes was extremely heavy. It suddenly occurred to one of the workers to open up the box. He was astonished at what he found. A man was lying in the box on top of a pile of woolen goods. He was so surprised at being discovered that he did not even try to run away. After he was arrested, the man admitted hiding in the box before the plane left London. He had had a long and uncomfortable trip, for he had been confined to the wooden box for over eighteen hours. The man was ordered to pay $3,500 for the cost of the trip. The normal price of a ticket is $2,000!

  参考译文

  当一架来自伦敦的飞机抵达悉尼机场时,工人们开始卸下装有服装的一批木箱。其中有只箱子特别重,可谁也弄不清是怎么回事。突然一个工人想到打开箱子看看。看到的情景使吃惊,箱内有一个人正躺在一堆毛织品之上。他由于被人发现而感到非常吃惊,甚至都没有企图逃跑。此人被逮捕后,承认他是在飞机离开伦敦前躲进箱里的。他经历了一次漫长而又难受的旅程,因为他在那木箱里闷了18个多小时。此人被责令交付旅费3,500英镑,而正常票价是2,000英镑!

  语法归纳:同位语从句

  一句话总结:从句的内容作同位语。

  对比定语从句和同位语从句:

  1) 定语从句是对被修饰词的限定或补充说明。修饰定语从句的引导词:

  关系代词:

  指人:who, whom, whose, that

  指物:that, which

  关系副词:when, where, why

  同位语从句是讲述被修饰名词的内容。同位语从句的引导词:that, what, when, where 注意:定语从句中没有what这个关系词,但what可以引导同位语从句。同位语从句举例:

  The fret that the criminal was guilty was clear to everyone. (解释作用)

  每个人都很清楚罪犯有罪这个事实。

  Have you any evidence that she is a thief ? (解释作用)

  您有证据证明他是小偷吗?

  I have no idea what has happened to him. (解释作用)

  我不知道到底在他身上发生了什么。

  定语从句应用举例:

  If he is a good doctor,who can cures himself. (修饰作用)

  能给自己治病的医生就是好医生(谚语)
