請各位英文高手幫忙回答英文文法疑問,謝謝。

But until that first break,don't get distracted by anything else, because

it can take the brain 20 minutes to do the equivalent of rebooting after an interruption.

(1)請問為何有but和because兩個連接詞出現在同一句子呢?

這段句子的結構該怎樣分析呢?

(2)請問until的用法該怎樣用呢?

    but 的幾種意思

    conj

      1. contrary to expectation: he cut his hand but didn`t cry

      2. in contrast; on the contrary: I like seafood but my husband doesn`t

      3. other than: we can`t do anything but wait

      4. without it happening: we never go out but it rains

    prep

      1. except: they saved all but one

      2. but for were it not for: but for you, we couldn`t have managed

    Adverb

      only: I can but try, he was but a child

    Noun

      an objection: ifs and buts [Old English būtan without, except]

    所以同第一位回答者說的, but 在這裡可以當作 only使用喔!

    句子分析: 我稍微改變一下結構

    (You) Don`t get distracted by anything else but until that first break, because it can take the brain 20 minutes to do the equivalent of rebooting after an interruption.

    1. Don`t get distracted by anything else but until that first break

    命令句,也是主要句子

    2. (You) Don`t get distracted by anything else but until that first break

    get distracted (分心) = be + p.p. 被動詞用法

    by anything else = 介系詞片語, 修飾 distracted

    but = adv. 強調語氣

    until that first break = 介系詞片語

    3. because it can take the brain 20 minutes (for a person) to do the equivalent of rebooting after an interruption.

    because = 連接詞

    the brain = take 的間接受詞

    20 minutes = take 的直接受詞

    to do the equivalent of rebooting = 不定詞片語

    to do = 不定詞

    the equivalent (of rebooting) = to do 的受詞, 其中 of rebooting是介系詞片語, 修飾 the equivalent

    after the interruption = 介系詞片語

    until 的用法

    prep.

      1. Up to the time of: We danced until dawn.

      2. Before (a specified time): She can`t leave until Friday.

    conj.

      1. Up to the time that: We walked until it got dark.

      2. Before: You cannot leave until your work is finished.

      3. To the point or extent that: I talked until I was hoarse.

    打字很慢不翻譯了

    1.But 在此等於only的意思,是副詞,所以沒有兩個連接詞出現在同一句子的問題。

    2.until 可以是介繫詞,not until具肯定意味“才....”

    ex. She did not come until ten o'clock.

    = Not until ten o'clock did she come.

    也可以是從屬連接詞

    ex. I'll wait until she comes.
