  A thirsty ghost

  嗜酒的鬼魂

  A public house which was recently bought by Mr.Ian Thompson is up for sale. Mr.Thompson is going to sell it because it is haunted. He told me that he could not go to sleep one night because he heard a strange noise coming from the bar. The next morning, he found that the doors had been blocked by chairs and the furniture had been moved. Though Mr.Thompson had turned the lights off before he went to bed, they were on in the morning. He also said that he had found five empty whisky bottles which the ghost must have drunk the night before. When I suggested that some villagers must have come in for a free drink, Mr.Thompson shook his head. The villagers have told him that they will not accept the pub even if he gives it away.

  参考译文

  伊恩.汤普森先生最近才买的一个小酒店现在又要卖出去。汤普森先生之所以想卖它,是因为那里常闹鬼。他告诉我有天夜里他怎么也睡不着,因为他听到酒吧里传来一阵奇怪的响声。第二天早上,他发现酒吧间的门被椅子堵上了,家具也被挪动过。虽然汤普森临睡觉时把灯关了,但早晨灯却都亮着。他还说他发现了5只空的威士忌瓶子,肯定是鬼魂昨天晚上喝的。当我暗示说一定是村里有些人来喝不花钱的酒时,汤普森先生摇了摇头。村里的人已经告诉他,即使他把小酒店白送人,他们也不要。

  逐句精讲笔记:

  1. A public house which was recently bought by Mr. Ian Thompson is up for sale.

  伊恩·汤普森先生最近才买的一个小酒店现在又要卖出去。

  真题测试测试语言点:定语从句

  Language is a city, ____ to the building of every human being brought a stone. (1994年1月CEIH 第51题)

  A. Which B. that C. it D. this

  答案:选A

  分析:根据句子结构分析,本题缺少的是一个引导定语从句的关系词,首先排除C、D 两项;由于题目中定语从句是非限定性的,而且关系词前有介词of,故不能用that。

  翻译:语言就像一座城市,对它的建筑每个人都曾添砖加瓦。

  2. Mr. Thompson is going to sell it because it is haunted.

  汤普森先生之所以想卖它,是因为那里常闹鬼。

  真题测试测试语言点:be going to 表示将来

  — _____ leave at the end of this month.

  —I don't think you should do that until_____ another job. (2006年高考北京卷,第27题)

  A: I'm going to; you'd found

  B: I'm going to; you'll find

  C: I'll; you'll find

  D: I'll; you'd find

  答案:选B

  分析:根据第一句话给出的时间提示at the end of this month可以得出说话双方谈论的并非是发生过的事情,由此排除A和D。如果主句动作是将来时态,until引导的时间状语从句不用将来时态,所以排除C。

  翻译:一我打算月底就离开。

  一我认为你没找到另一份工作前不应该那么做。

  3. He told me that he could not go to sleep one night because he heard a strange noise coining from the bar.

  他告诉我有天夜里他怎么也睡不着,因为他听到酒吧里传来一阵奇怪的响声。

  真题测试 测试语言点:because引导的原因状语从句

  Parents should take seriously their children's requests for sunglasses eye protection _____ is necessary in sunny weather. (2004年高考上海卷,第39题)

  A. because B. though C. unless D. if

  答案:选A

  分析:根据两个分句句意“父母对孩子要太阳镜的要求应该重视”和“在阳光充足的日子里对眼睛的保护是必要的”,可知它们之间是因果关系,以及选项中四个词的含义,很容易选出A; because表原因,而though表示转折,unless和if都表示条件。

  翻译:父母对孩子要太阳镜的要求应该重视,因为在阳光充足的日子里对眼睛的保护是必要的。

  4. The next morning, he found that the doors had been blocked by chairs and the furniture hadbeen moved.

  第二天早上,他发现房间的门被椅子堵上了,家具也被挪动过。

  真题测试 测试语言点:过去完成时和现在完成时

  John and I______ friends for eight years. We first got to know each other at a Christmas party. But we _____ each other a couple of times before that. (2002年春季高考,第25题)

  A.had been; have seen

  B.have been; have seen

  C.had been; had seen

  D.have been; had seen

  答案:选D

  分析:第一空为现在完成时,与段时间状语for eight years搭配;第二空,在一次晚会上认识之前就见过,正是“过去的过去”发生的一个动作,应该用过去完成时,所以选D

  翻译:约翰和我已经是八年的朋友了,我们第一次相识是在一个圣诞节的晚会上,但是在此之前我们早已彼此见过几次。

  5. Though Mr.Thompson had turned the lights off before he went to bed, they were on in the morning.

  虽然汤普森临睡觉时把灯都关掉了,但早晨灯却都亮着。

  真题测试 测试语言点:though 和even so 的区别

  John seems a nice person. ____ I don't trust him. (1997年6月CET-4,第54题)

  A. Even thoughB. Even soC. ThereforeD. Though

  答案:选B

  分析:A 项even though“即使”,是引导让步状语从句的引导词;C项therefore“因此”,表示结果;D项though“虽然”可用作表示转折关系的副词,但它通常置于句尾或插入句子中间;B项even so“然而,即使如此”,相当于副词nevertheless,常用于句首,所以选B。
