难句解析
1. However, most trains to London only
went to the outer city limits, because

building railway tracks into the city
would have caused damaged many old

buildings. (P50 L4-6)

句子结构分析:在这个复合句中,most trains to London only went to the outer city limits是主句;because building railway tracks into the city would have damaged many old buildings是原因状语 从句。to London和to the outer city都为 介词短语作定语,分别修饰trains和 railway tracks。

2. Unfortunately, the number of vehicles on the road caused unbelievable traffic jams, and the roads became so busy that no one could travel anywhere. (P50 L7-9)

句子结构分析:此句为and连接起来
的并列句。第一个分句为一个简单句;

第二个分句为结果状语主从复合句, the
roads became so busy 是主句, that no

one could travel anywhere是结果状语从
句。

3. Travelling on these lines was not

convenient, though, as each line was
possessed by a different company, and

many were very far from each other.
(P50 L31-32)

1) 句子结构分析:Travelling on these lines was not convenient, though为主句, as each line was possessed by a different company, and many were very far from each other为原因状语从句;状语从句又 为由and连接的两个并列句。

2) 语言知识分析: Travelling on these lines was inconvenient, though意为“然而,搭乘这些线路很不方 便”,句子中的though为副词,意为“可 是,不过,然而”,常被置于句中或句末。

4. Having seen the situation, a wealthy

American businessman, Charles Yerkes,
undertook improving the system in 1902 by obtaining ownership of the many different lines and setting up the Underground Electric Railways Company of London. (P51 L33-36)

1)句子结构分析:此句虽然很长,但实 际上是一个简单句。主干为a wealthy American businessman undertook improving the system。句首的Having seen the situation为V-ing短语作状语; Charles Yerkes为a wealthy American businessman的同位语;后面的by obtaining ownership ...是方式状语。

2) 语言知识分析:
Having seen the situation意为“看到这种

情况”。一般说来,V-ing形式作状语时,
逻辑主语为主句的主语,用完成式表示 其动作发生在主句谓语动词的动作之前。

5. A new line was used as an underground airplane factory, an underground station was used as a centre for directing the defence against air attacks, and the station nearest the Prime Minister’s

house was used by the Prime Minister as
meeting rooms for the administration of

government. (P51 L45-48)

句子结构分析:

此句为and连接起来的三个并列句。第
一个分句为A new line was used as an

underground airplane factory;第二个
分句为an underground station was used

as a centre for directing the defence
against air attacks ;

第三个分句为: the station nearest

the Prime Minister’s house was
used by the Prime Minister as

meeting rooms for the government
administration。
