英语中并列连词的使用方法
作者:齐小朵|2017年09月29日 14:53

A conjunction is a word that grammatically connects two words, phrases, or clauses together. The most common examples are words like ‘and’ and ‘but’.
连词在语法上连接两个词,短语或者句子。最常见的连词是‘and’和‘but’。

For example, ‘I took the subway, and got off at 96th Street.’ Or, ‘I took the subway, but there was a delay.’ However, conjunctions can come in many forms with many different functions.
例如,‘我上了地铁,然后在第96大街下车了’或者‘我乘地铁了,但是我还是耽搁了’。然而,连词有多种形式,自然也有不同的作用。

They’re a part of speech that can be broken down into several categories, and we’ll explore each one in depth with examples.
连词是一种词性,可以被分成好多种类,我们将附以例子来深入探讨每一种。

Conjunctions can primarily be broken down into three categories:
连词主要可以分成三种:

Coordinating conjunctions
并列连词

Correlative conjunctions
关联连词

Subordinating conjunctions
从属连词

Coordinating conjunctions always come between two clauses in order to connect them. These are two ideas that are related and can therefore be placed into one longer sentence.
并列连词位于两个从句中间,用来连接两个句子。并列连词连接的是两种意义相近的想法,有了并列连词的连接,两个短句就可以被合写成一个较长的句子。

A coordinating conjunction is a conjunction like “and” and “but.” It joins together words, phrases, or clauses that are grammatically equal. The seven coordinating conjunctions are:
并列连词就是像and或者but这样的连词,它连接在语法上对等的单词,短语和从句。以下是七个并列连词。

For
因为

And

Nor
也不

But
但是

Or
或者

Yet
然而

So
因此

The seven coordinating conjunctions can be remembered using the acronym: FANBOYS
这七个并列连词可以用首字母缩写的方式来记忆,即FANBOYS。

For
因为

For shows reason or purpose (sometimes because can be used instead)
For表示原因或者是目的(有时候可以用instead来代替它)

I go to the library, for I love to read.
因为我喜欢阅读,所以我去图书馆。

While the word “so” introduces the “effect” part of a cause-and-effect relationship, the word “for” introduces the cause.
在因果关系里,‘so’引出来的是结果,‘for’引出来的是原因。

My husband and I went to Costa Rica, for it was our five-year anniversary.
我和我的丈夫去了哥斯达黎加,因为大师我们结婚五周年纪念。

Using the word “for” like this, however, can sound a bit formal and unnatural in spoken English. Instead, it’s better to use subordinating conjunctions like “because” or “since,” which we’ll discuss later. Meanwhile, the word “for” can take different usages as a preposition, not a conjunction. For example:
在英语口语中这样使用‘for’听起来有点正式甚至不自然。相反,使用从属连词‘because’或者‘since’可能会好一点,这一点后期我们会进行讨论。同时‘for’这个词作为介词用法完全不一样。例如:

What are you doing for New Year’s?
你新年打算做什么?

And

And connects two or more ideas.
And 连接两个或者两个以上的想法。

I like to eat cookies, and I like to drink milk.
我喜欢吃饼干,我喜欢喝牛奶。

The conjunction “and” is used to join two or more items that make sense with each other.
连词‘and’用来连接两个或者多个成分,这些成分只有放在一起才有意义。

I put mayonnaise and mustard in this sandwich.
我把蛋黄酱和芥末放到三明治里。

It can also be used to connect a series of events.
它还可以用来连接一系列事件。

Everyday after school, I go to the library and study.
放学后的每一天我都去读书馆学习。

If you want to list several items, use commas and the word “and” at the very end.
如果你想列出多项,就可以使用逗号然后用单词and进行最后的连接。

I wasted so much time, energy, and money on that trip.
那次旅行,我浪费了很多时间,精力和金钱。

也不

Nor shows a non-contrasting, negative idea.
Nor表示非对比的,否定的想法。

I refuse to hug to people I don’t know, nor will I kiss them.
我拒绝拥抱我不认识的人,当然我也不会亲吻他们。

While “and” is used to join two positive items together, the conjunction “nor” is used to pair two negative items. It’s found either with the word “not” or with the word “neither.”
‘And’用来连接肯定的成分,‘nor’用来连接否定的成分。‘Nor’或者与‘not’连用,或者与‘neither’连用。

A common usage of the word “but” is in the construction “not…but.” You can also use the word “rather” to emphasize the contrast in the statement.

注意‘so’这个词可以用来证明一个建议或者是命令。它也可以用来解释问题的基础。

All the bars are closed by now, so what do you want to do instead?
所有的酒吧都关门了,你打算怎么办。

Another usage of the conjunction “so” is to introduce a new idea or change the subject, whether this has a cause-and-effect relationship or not. For example:
连词‘so’的另一个用法就是不管有没有因果关系,它可以用来引进一个新的概念或者改变主题。

So, what do you want to talk about now?
那么,你现在想谈点什么呢?

Be careful not to mix up the coordinating conjunction “so” with other usages of the word “so.” For example:
要注意不要把并列连词‘so’的用法跟单词‘so’的用法混淆。例如:

 “Is it going to be warmer tomorrow?” “I think so.”
“明天会暖和一点吗?”“我想应该会。”
