neither...nor等等連接詞的用法 20點

我在文法講義上看到

Tom wants not only to be the best student in the class but also to win a full scholarship.

這句話可以寫成

Tom not only wants to be the best student in the class but also wants to win a full scholarship. 嗎?

還有 He neither went to the library nor went to the bookstore. 可以寫成

He went to neither the library nor the bookstore. 嗎?

請告訴我 謝謝 ^^

    The Rule: Use parallel structures with correlatives (both ... and; either ... or; neither ... nor; not only ... but also; whether ... or). In other words, the two items connected by "not only . . . but also" and other constructions showing "co-relativity," must be similar in kind.

    So:

    Wrong: Tom not only wants to be

    the best student in the class but also wants to win a full scholarship.

    Right: Tom wants not only to be

    the best student in the class but also to win a full scholarship.

    Right: Tom

    not only wants to be the best student in the class but also wishes to win a

    full scholarship.

    Wrong: He not

    only taught five periods a day but also taught three sports.

    Right: He not

    only taught five periods a day but also coached three sports.Wrong: He neither went to the library nor went to the bookstore. Right: He went to neither the library nor the bookstore.Right: He neither went to the library nor visited the bookstore.

    1、是可以這樣寫的。但是英文有一個重點是,最好不要重複出現相同的字。所以如果你寫成

    Tom not only wants to be the best student in the class but also wants to win a full scholarship.

    這樣就出現了兩次 wants to,不如一次的簡潔有力了。就好像數學沒有約分到最簡化一樣。

    2、同樣的,你寫成這樣也是沒錯的,因為只要對等連接詞兩邊連接的是相同詞性/單位即可。所以你本來是連接兩個動詞片語(went to the library 和 went to the bookstore)改成連接兩個名詞(the library 和 the bookstore)這樣是對的。

    3、所以,上面網友改的是錯的喔!改成一個wants to... 一個 to win...這樣就沒有連接兩個動詞片語了,變成一個動詞片語(wants to)和一個不定詞(to win...),要注意一下。

    這位大大你好,就你第一句的寫法是錯誤的喔

    因為主詞後面要加動詞,而neither...nor是連接詞

    前面寫的wants到後面因重覆可以省略

    所以

    Tom not only wants to be the best student in the class but also to win a full scholarship

    才是對的

    而第二句的用法也不對喔,原因跟第一句是一樣的

    主詞後面要加動詞喔,且前面寫的went到後面重覆可以省略

    所以

    He went to neither the library nor the bookstore

    才是對的

    希望有幫到你,有問題在問喔

    文法角度看是沒有錯,語法上有些抝口;不是可以不可以的問題,反而是流不流暢 的問題。
