  1. Not only A but also B 前後A B結構必須對等。

not only but also句首

因爲not only A but also B 是對等的sentence structure。

A&B可以是單一個名詞、形容詞或子句, A 和 B 兩者的詞性和時態必須是互相呼應的。

即是説:如果 A 是名詞,B 也一定要是名詞,如果 A 是句子, B 也必須為句子。

就是門對門,戶對戶的關係。

例句:

The car not only is economical but also feels good to drive.
VO對VO

The war caused not only destruction and death but also generations of hatred between the two communities.
Noun 對 Noun

倒裝句有兩中sentence structure:

  2. Not only + be 動詞 + 主詞 , but + 主詞 + be 動詞 + (also)

例句:

  1. Not only did she forget my birthday, but she also didn’t even apologise for forgetting it.
  2. Not only was it raining all day at the wedding but also the band was late.

Not only A but also B
B後面的動詞需跟從B

not only but also逗號

即是説,B後面的動詞需否加s 全權由B定奪!

例句:

Not only does she want a pay increase, but her friends also want reduced hours as well.

want跟從her friends而非she
