    专八改错练习第八多了,多得无法处理。本句说:这些牛奶就被制成奶粉拿到该国去喂养那些营养不良的儿童。由此可见本句与上文是因果关系,不能用also来连接。 9.insanely改为insane 此处表达“荒唐的经济关系”insane修饰的是relationship,而非economic,因此要用形容词代替。 10.把in改为into 词组get in 虽然也可以表达“ 进入,陷入”,但是in为副词,后面不能跟地点,所以应该改为into

    该为if he heard no mothertongue,即:如果听不到母语,孩子会讲什么语言。 3.as^--that 句中的as是一个介词,后面缺少宾语,后面添加的that替代the deprivation,而ordered byFrederick 是一个过去分词短语,做定语修饰that。 4..Furthermore--Neverthless/However Furthermore表示的是递进关系,而这一句话与前一句话明显构成的是转折关系。 5.away--动词pass是指“经过,通过,流逝”,而pass away是指“去世,死亡”,用在此处不和文意。 6.up--out 短语turn up的意思是“出现,找到”,而turn out 的意思是“结果证明是……”,这专八改错句话的意思是说:有些情况是说话比较迟的孩子,最终却被证明智商很高。 7.of--with be born with...意思是“与生俱来的...”是一固定短语搭配。 8.realizes--recognizes realize意思是“认识到,了解”,recognize的意思是“识别,认可”,可见recognize符合文章意思:语言需要激发,而这取决于母亲和孩子之间的互动,在互动当中,母亲识别孩子的牙牙学语声和笑声哭声中的暗示和信号。 9.it--them 此处指代的词是cues and signals,所以,代词应该用复数形式them。 10.verbal--nonverbal 根据上文判断,babbling,prasping,crying,smiling均为非言语信号,所以是nonverbal。

    专八改错练习第十一篇: In department stores and closets all over the world,they are waiting. Their outward appearance seems ratherappealing since __1__ they come in a variety of styles, textures, and colors. And they are ultimately the biggest deception thatexists in the __2__ fashionable industry today. What are they? They arehigh heels __3__ --woman’s worst enemy ( whether she knows it or not). High heel __4__ shoes are the downfall of modern society. Fashion myths have led women to believe that they are more beautiful or sophisticating __5__ for wearing heels, but in reality, heels succeed on posing short as __6__ as well as long term hardships. Women should fight the high hell industry by refusing to use or purchase them in order to save the world of unnecessary physical and psychological suffering. __7__ For the sake of fairness, it must be noted that there is a positive side to high heels. First, heels are excellent for aerating lawns. Anyone who has ever worn heels on grass know what I am talking __8__ about. A simple trip around the yard on a pair of those babies __9__ eliminates all needs to call for a lawn care specialist, and provides __10__ the perfect-sized holes to give any lawn oxygen without all those messy chunks of dirt lying around. 参考答案(反白可见): 1.since改为because或者for 当since表示原因时,它往往出现在句子的开头而非中间。 2.And改为But 从与上一段的关系看来,这里是转折而不是承接。 3.fashionable改为fashion fashionable是形容词表示“时尚的,时髦的”,而这里所指的是“时尚产业”,所以应该用它的名词形式。 4.woman前加上a或者woman改为women 可数名词单数形式前面必须加冠词,因此这里须加上a,或者将woman变成服侍形式表类指。 5.sophisticating改为sophisticated 6.on改为in succeed 与介词in连用,后面加动词ing形式。如: We have already succeeded in working out ground rules with the Department ofDefense. 7.of 改为from save sb from doing sth 表示“避免某人做某事”。 8.know改为knows 主语和谓语在形式上须一致,anyone在语义上表达的是单数含义。 9.on改为in 英语表示穿戴往往用介词in。 10.needs改为need 尽管need前用了all来限定,但need所专八改错指的是“叫来草坪护理专家”这单一的含义,因此应该用单数,all在这里只是起到强调的作用

    专八改错练习第二十三篇: It is difficult to think of a nation as an abstract collection of people living on a patch of territory. It is easier to think of as a person. This is why we sometimes call Great Britain__1__ "Britannia" and the United States "Columbia", and think of it as stately women. We also use

    专八改错练习第十八篇: Yesterday afternoon John and I were walking alonga road where we heard someone shout "Help! Help!" He wasin __1__ a lake, about a hundred feet from the shore. There wasa __2__ small boat nearby. We knew immediately whathappened. __3__ He had fallen out of the boat and could not swim good enough __4__ to reach it or to get to the shore. As we ran towards the lake I saw him sunk, and I was certain that he would drown. But in __5__ a moment his head appeared again. Quickly John took out his __6__ shoes, jumped into the water and started swimming toward the drowned man. He reached him just as the man went down __7__ again. He was close enough as to stretch out his hand and try __8__ to take hold of the man's clothes or his hair before he sank. But the man threw out his arms in fear, caught John across the __9__ neck, and began to draw him down under the water. John fought to keep his head above the water and at the same time tried to swim toward the boat, pulled the man with him. __10__ 答案及解析(反白可见): 1. where—when 2. a lake—the lake 据上下文判断,这是指离专八改错海边唯一的湖泊,因此用定冠词 3.在happened前加had 4. good—well 副词well修饰swim 5.sunk—sinking 现在分词表示正在进行的动作 6. out—off 7. drowned—drowning drowned意味着此人已经被淹死了,drowning表示正在进行,快要淹死了 8. 去掉as 直接由to stretch作状语 9. across—around across意味“穿过”,即“穿过他的脖子”,意义不通顺。改为around即为“抱着他的脖子”,合乎逻辑和本文意义 10. pulled—pulling

    别是:前者介词in后面跟结果,后者介词from后面跟原因。从上下文来看,是说地震引起海浪,所以应该用from。 7.adjacent^-to 形容词adjacent可以直接放在名词前做定语,例如:an adjacent city(一个临近的城市)。但是如果做后置定语就要和介词to搭配,例如: a city adjacent to Shanghai。 8.considerate-considerable considerate意思为 “体贴的,周到的”,considerable意思是“相当大的,相当多的”。 9.and-but 前文说12到15米高的海啸给Ormara和Pasi两个地方带来了很大的损失,而Combay海湾的海啸有15米高,却没有灾难记录。从前后句的逻辑关系来看,二者是对比转折,所以应专八改错该用but。 10.whcih-where 先行词是Mumbai,在非限制性关系分句中做地点状语,所以应该用关系副词where引导。

    能做形容词,而如果把它理解成现在进行词,后面又缺乏宾语,所以应该改为形容词manifest,表示 “显然的,明显的”. 2.把begins改为began 根据下一行出现的could可以判断本句是过去时. 3.把mean改为means. by means of 是固定用法. 4.在added后面加上to 如果add后面不加to,此句就表示 “把图书馆加到某个事物上去”,加上to,表示给图书馆增加了内容,符合句义. 5.把risen改为raised rise是不及物动词,不能用于被动语态. 6.把However改为Moreover 此句的意思是:新知识一经获得,马上就得到实际应用.这是对上文的追加,不存在转折关系,因此应该用moreover. 7.删除but后面的not 8.把Like改为As 9.把could改为can 主句为现在时,而从句也不表示虚拟,所以应专八改错该用现在时. 10.在that后面加上of. 为了避免重复,这里用that指代spectacle,后面的gunner using是that 的内容.因此应该用介词of引出.

    专八改错练习第五篇: Tracing missing persons can take much patientdetective work. But a special kind of “private eye” cantrace the missing ancestors of whole peoples by studying the clues buried by words. __1__ These philologists, such as the language detectives arecalled, have traced __2__ the word trail back from peoples in Europe, India,South Africa, the Americas, and the Pacific islands in a tiny nameless, and forgotten tribe that roamed central__3__ Eurasia 5000 to 6000 years ago, before the dawn of writing history. __4__ Since a long time scholars have been puzzled over the striking __5__ difference of words in different languages. In Dutch, vader; in Latin, pater;in __6__ old Irish, athir; in Persian, pidar;in the Sanskrit of distant India, pitr. These words all sounded likely and meant the same thing—“father” __7__ Where did it happen that widely separated peoples used such __8__ close related sound symbols? The problem baffled linguists for years. The more so__9__ because “father” was but one of a host of such coincidences. Towards the end of the 18 century it dawned on scholars that perhaps all these words stemmed__10__ from some common language. 参考答案及解析(反白可见): 1. 将by改为in (be) buried in 意思为 “被…所掩盖,掩蔽于…” 2. 将such去掉 在这里as是连词,引导状语从句. 3. 将第一个and改为to (这个句子长,小心上当呀) 以便和前文的from构成搭配 “from…to…”,表示 “从……到……”. 4. 将writing改为written` “有文字记载的历史”英语为 “written history”. 5. 将Since改为 For 因为since做介词, 表示 “自从……起” 之意时,后面一般不跟表示一段时间的名词. 6. 将difference改为similarity 从后面的例子我们可以看出,作者在这里讲述的是文字的惊人的相同之处,而不是不同之处. 7. 将likely改为alike likely 意思为 “很可能的”,不做 “相同的,相专八改错似的”解. 8. 将where改为why 这里不是问地点而是问原因,从后面的because也可以看出. 9. 将close改为副词closely 因为形容词close不能修饰过去分词related. 10. 将18改为 18th. The more so because “father” was but one of a host of such coincidences. 这句话的the more so because是什么意思呢, 以为人家出版社错了,不过看两本资料都这么写. 有谁看得懂么?还是说真的是出错了. 原来the more so because意思为: 更何况.
