英语中的因果(从句表原因)

知识点

在英语写作中,只要提到因果关系,我们首先想到的就是 because ,但一篇文章种反复使用 because, 你不禁想:单调又重复,这样的文章阅卷老师看了怕是会睡着吧,但实际上,英语中表达因果关系的远远不止 because:

  • 首先来看看在写作中被用烂了的because吧!

I was tired after my journey because I had been driving non-stop for several hours.

旅途结束后我很累,因为我已经不停歇的开了几个小时的车了。

  • 除了 because 以外,assince 也可以表达因果关系,尝试把上面的句子变换一下:

As / Since I had been driving non-stop for several hours, I was tired after my journey.

旅途结束后我很累,因为我已经不停歇的开了几个小时的车了。

但他们还是存在区别的:as 和 since 被放在句首的情况比较多,且 as 和 since 更强调结果,because更强调原因。 还有一类句型也可以表示因果关系:The reason (why) + 结果 is that + 原因,其中的 why 可以省略。

The reason why the string broke was that it was under great tension.

琴弦断裂的原因是它处于很大的张力之下。
