Toeic文法英文連接詞

我在做Toeic的文法題目時

發現有一題

_______his father has got well, the child will be happy.

1 In case

2 As soon as

3 Now that

4 Unless

答案是3,為什麼不是4?

感覺翻譯上用4好像也沒有什麼不對

可以分別解釋其他連接詞不可使用的原因嗎?

    Now that

    You use now or now that to indicate that an event has occurred and as a result something else may or will happen.

    Now you're settled, why don't you take up some serious study?...

    Now that she was retired she lived with her sister.

    (以上Collins Cobuild)

    now2 S1 W3 also ˈnow that

    because of something or as a result of something:

    Now that we know each other a little better, we get along fine.

    I'm going to relax now the school year is over.

    Now that I think of it, I acted the same way when I was his age.

    以上longman

    故可看出 now that 用來指 已經發生的事 (看collins cobuild的定義)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    再來看 unless

    You use unless to introduce the only circumstances in which an event you are mentioning will not take place or in which a statement you are making is not true.

    Unless you are trying to lose weight to please yourself, it's going to be tough to keep your motivation level high...

    We cannot understand disease unless we understand the person who has the disease...

    以上collins cobuild

    un‧less S1 W1 /šn"les, n-/

    1 used to say that something will happen or be true if something else does not happen or is not true:

    Unless some extra money is found, the theatre will close.

    I think you should complain - unless, of course, you are happy with the way things are.

    He won't go to sleep unless you tell him a story.

    I can't leave her unless I know she's all right.

    以上longman

    故可看出 unless 指的是一種條件。大都接現在式、或現在進行式。

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~```

    故 綜合以上二點,選擇 Now that 是正確的 (其實我自已第一次看這題目也選D 哈哈)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If you say that something happens as soon as something else happens, you mean that it happens immediately after the other thing.

    As soon as relations improve they will be allowed to go...

    You'll never guess what happened as soon as I left my room.

    以上collins cobuild

    2009-07-15 00:13:11 補充:

    as soon as immediately after something happens, without delay:

    As soon as she entered the room, she knew there was something wrong.

    I'll come over to your place as soon as I can.

    以上longman

    2009-07-15 00:13:19 補充:

    一般來說用簡單現在式表未來(表條件語氣)、簡單過去式表過去(純粹當副詞子句表時間點)

    ex:

    As soon as I left home,it began to rain.

    I will return the book to the library as soon as I finish reading it.

    2009-07-15 00:13:29 補充:

    為<連接詞片語>,表示(一...就),可用在句首或句中引出表時間<副詞子句>。

    假如這句改寫成用 as soon as的話,如下

    As soon as his father get well (表條件), the child will be happy.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    2009-07-15 00:13:42 補充:

    in case

    (1) in order to be prepared for something that may happen

    Take an umbrella in case it rains.

    just in case

    I’ll make some sandwiches, just in case we get hungry later on.

    in case of

    In case of bad weather, the wedding will be held indoors.

    2009-07-15 00:13:56 補充:

    (2) used for explaining why you are doing something

    In case you were wondering, I’m here to see your brother, not you.

    (3) (mainly american) if 

    In case you can’t come, give me a call before I leave for work.

    以上 Macmillan

    故 in case 的用法是 (1)當 假使解: 條件句 (2) 當免得 解

    Hi 小喵,我最近也在準備TOEIC,如果有難題的話可以寫信通知我您有發問喔。

    答案不是4是因為

    你如果用unless這個字

    後面理當也要改成否定變成

    Unless his father has got well, or the child won't be happy.

    除非他的爸爸好起來,否則那小孩不會快樂

    這樣才會有意義

    ---------------

    In case 是以免

    In case I am late, don't wait to start dinner.

    為了避免我遲到,晚餐就不要等我先開動吧

    所以In case後面加個名詞或句子當作你怕會發生的事情

    ----------------

    as soon as 一怎麼樣就怎麼樣

    As soon as the sun goes down, the temperature drops dramatically.

    太陽一下山後,氣溫就會驟降

    通常這都是使用在事實,沒有推測意味

    你看後面的 the temperature drops它使用簡單式來表示事實的意思

    可是Now that是既然的意思

    You ought to have a good rest now that you've finished the work.

    既然已完成了工作,你就應該好好休息一下。

    既然怎樣怎樣了,接下來你會接一個你"想"表達的事

    如同題目的

    Now that his father has got well, the child will be happy.

    既然他爸爸已經康復了,那個小孩會變得快樂的

    也許你會問那為什麼as soon as 不行

    因為"既然"跟"已經"是相搭的

    這個你隨便套個中文句子都會了解

    既然我已經來了,.....

    -----------------

    可是你如果用as soon as

    他應該要改成

    As soon as his father gets well, the child will be happy.

    用現在式來代替未來式

    這樣才會有意義

    參考資料:

    got well(get well) 康復

    in case 倘若 ; 以防萬一

    as soon as 立刻 ; 一...就...

    now that 既然

    unless 除非 ; 除...之外
