Lesson 34   自学导读First things first

  课文详注  Further notes on the text

  1.Dan Robinson has been worried all week. 丹·鲁宾逊焦虑了整整一个星期。

  worried 在这里可以当成是形容词,表示“焦虑的”、“担心的”。worry 也可以作及物动词,表示“使担心/发愁”等:

  She appears to be worried by/ about something.

  好像有什么事使她发愁。(用于被动语态时,过去分词与形容词意义差不多)

 

  2.the local police,当地警察局。

  local 可以表示“地方性的”或“当地的”、“本地的”:

  a local newspaper 地方性报纸

  local news 本地新闻

  local shops邻近的商店

 

  3.Dan wondered why he was wanted by the police…丹奇怪警察为什么找他……

  (1) wonder表示“想知道”时后面往往跟疑问词引导的从句:She wondered who that man was/ what had happened. 她想知道那个人是谁/到底发生了什么事。

  (2) want用于被动语态时可以表示“想与(某人见面、谈话等)”或“缉拿”、“追捕”:

  Please wait a minute. I'm wanted on the phone.

  请等一下。有我的电话。

  This is the man (who is) wanted by the police.

  这就是警察在追捕的那个人。

 

  4.a smiling policeman ,一位面带笑容的警察。

  smiling 为现在分词,作定语,其作用相当于形容词。还可以说:

  a sleeping dog 一只睡着的狗

  a worried face 一张焦虑的脸

 

  5.Five days ago, the policeman told him, the bicycle was picked up in a small village four hundred miles away. 那位警察对他说,那辆自行车是5天前在400英里外的一个小村里发现的。

  (1)这句话实际上是一个间接引语(cf.第15课语法),其正常语序应为: The policeman told him that five days ago the bicycle was picked up…语序变化后,the policeman told him成了插入成分,引导从句的that也被省略,引述的部分被分割成两部分。

  (2) four hundred miles away修饰 village,相当于从句 which wasfour hundred miles away。

  (3) pick up的含义之一为“(偶然地、无意地)获得”、“找到”、“学会”:

  I've picked up a bad cold.

  我得了重感冒。

  I picked up some French while travelling in Paris.

  在巴黎游览期间我学了几句法语。

  He picked up the book in a small library.

  他在一个小图书馆发现了那本书。

 

  6.It is now being sent to his home by train.现在正用火车给他运回家来。

  这句话是被动语态用于现在进行时,其结构为“am/is/are+ be-ing+过去分词”(cf.第10课语法):

  The clavichord is being repaired by a friend of my

  father's.

  父亲的一个朋友正在修理这架古钢琴。

 

  语法 Grammar in use

  被动语态(3)

  在第10课的语法中,我们学习了被动语态的基本形式。一般说来,无论是主动语态还是被动语态,句子的主语往往是说话者认为比较重要或想要强调的。如果 说话人想避免用不明确的词(如 someone, a person等)作主语,就常常使用被动语态。在“动词+宾语+不定式”结构中,既可以让动词用被动语态而不定式用主动语态,也可以让不定式用被动语态:

  Someone told Mary to meet us.

  有人通知玛丽来接我们。(主语不明确)

 

  词汇学习 Word study

  1.与call有关的短语动词

  动词call与不同的小品词连用可以构成意义不同的短语动词。

  他每月对这条街上的每户人家光顾一次。

  He was asked to call at the police station.

  他被告知去警察局一趟。

  (2)call on 表示“拜访”、“探望”:

  Have you called on George recently?

  你最近去看过乔治吗?

  (3)call out表示“大声叫喊”:

  Some people on the bank called out to the man in the boat.

  岸上的一些人对着小船上的那人高喊。

  (4)call up在美国英语中表示“打电话(给某人)”:

  Jane called me up the other day.

  前几天,简给我打过电话。

  If you want my help, just call up.

  你如果需要我的帮助,来个电话就行。

  (5) call off 可以表示“取消(某项活动)”:

  For some reason, they have called off the party / the meeting.
