英语中的因果(副词篇)

知识点

今天依旧是表示因果的方式——副词,准备好了吗?一波副词大军正在靠近! thus、therefore、accordingly、hence、consequently,它们意思相近,都可以用来表示“因此,从而”。

Some of the laws were contradictory. Accordingly, measures were taken to clarify them.

有些法律相互矛盾。因此,采取了措施将其阐明。

We were unable to get funding and therefore had to abandon the project.

我们无法筹到资金,因此不得不放弃计划。

副词表示因果关系容易掌握,却也容易错,这是一个非常有趣的语言现象,我们来看看这个句子:整栋办公楼都停电了,因此他们无法工作。

The power was out to the whole office building, therefore they could not get any work done.

这里很明显是错误的,therefore是副词,不能连接两个句子。

The power was out to the whole office building, and therefore they could not get any work done.

and做连词连接句子,therefore 只表结果逻辑,正确。

The power was out to the whole office building. Therefore they could not get any work done.

句号分隔句子,therefore 只表结果逻辑,正确。

The power was out to the whole office building; therefore they could not get any work done.

分号分隔句子,therefore 只表结果逻辑,正确。 总而言之,牢牢记住,今天给大家介绍的这些都是副词,绝对不能直接连接两个句子!
