探索「Not only, but also」的強大表達能力

“Not only, but also”是並列連接詞,用來連接句子中兩個平行的元素。 它強調了兩個要素都很重要並且應該一起考慮的想法。 這結構增加了重點,可以傳達一種附加或對比的感覺。

結構:Not only + [element 1] + but also + [element 2]

Common Uses of “Not only, but also” 「不僅,而且」的常見用法:

Addition加法:用來表示句子中提到的兩個要素都是真實的適用的

Example: Not only did she excel in academics, but she also participated in various extracurricular activities.

 

Contrast 對比:它用於突出提到的兩個元素之間的對比差異

Example: Not only is he talented, but he also works hard to improve his skills.

 

Emphasis強調:它強調了兩個元素的重要性意義

Example: Not only is she an exceptional singer, but she also writes her own songs.

常見錯誤:

 

錯誤的放置:確保將“Not only”和“but also”放置在它們連接的之前,以保持清晰度和平行結構


Incorrect: She not only sings but also writes her own songs.
Correct: She not only sings but also writes her own songs.

 

缺少平行結構:確保「Not only」和「But also」連接的元素在結構上是平行的,以保持語法正確


Incorrect: Not only she is talented, but also works hard.
Correct: Not only is she talented, but she also works hard.

 

動詞時態不一致:使用「Not only ,But also」時保持動詞tense的一致性,以避免混淆。


Incorrect: Not only she studied, but also attends workshops.
Correct: Not only did she study, but she also attended workshops.

 

過度使用:選擇性地使用“Not only, but also”,並避免在寫作中過度使用。 過度使用會使句子聽起來重複或過於複雜。


Incorrect: Not only did he win the race, but also he broke the record, and not only that, he also received a medal.
Correct: He not only won the race but also broke the record, and additionally, he received a medal.
