第一段词汇解析

①journalist = reporter/correspondent。

②well-known = famous。③instructed =ordered, commissioned; instruct sb. to do sth.=tell sb. formally to do sth.。

④publish = print,issue。

⑤surrounds = encircles。

 

第二段词汇解析

①set out to do sth.= decide and try to do sth.

②fired = sacked, dismissed。

③reluctantly = unwillingly。

④not only 位于句首,后面所接的句子需要部分倒转,否定副词位于句首也要倒装,比如 never had I…。

⑤allow sb. to do sth.不定式作 sb.的补语,但此句被动,所以作主语 he 的补语。

⑥in which 引导的定语从句属于“介词+关系代词”,这种结构只能 which 指物, whom 指人。

⑦while+doing sth.现在分词短语作时间状语相当于状语从句。
