英文文法解答消失的主詞

The suspicion does not appear improbable that the progenitors of man, either the males or females, or both sexes, before they had acquired the power of expressing their mutual love in articulate language, endeavoured to charm each other with musical notes and rhythm.

這個句子要怎麼看?為什麼endeavoured to charm each other with msical notes and rhythm.可以接在最後面而不用主詞。Before they eat, they wash their hand.後面的子具有主詞they,但在我發問的句子裡卻看不到。

    The suspicion does not appear improbable

    主要子句

    that the progenitors of man, either the males or females, or both sexes

    endeavored to charm each other with musical notes and rhythm.

    that子句

    , before they had acquired the power of expressing their mutual love in articulate language

    副詞子句

    他只是把before這個副詞子句插到that子句中間而已,若把它移出來就明瞭了

    紅色為各句中的主詞

    藍色為動詞

    The suspicion does not appear improbable that the progenitors of man, either the males or females, or both sexesendeavored to charm each other with musical notes and rhythm, before they had acquired the power of expressing their mutual love in articulate language.

    問:為什麼endeavoured to charm each other with msical notes and rhythm.可以接在最後面而不用主詞?

    答:它的主詞是the progenitors of man。本子句翻譯:

    人類的祖先,不分男女,在會用語言表達愛意之前,是用樂音及玄律來相互取悅對方的。

    The suspicion does not appear improbable that the progenitors of man(, either the males or females, or both sexes,插入句,當補述用,刪除不影響句意) ( before they had acquired the power of expressing their mutual love in articulate language, endeavoured to charm each other with musical notes and rhythm.時間附屬子句當副詞修飾前面主要子句)

    ------in articulate language, (which was )endeavoured to charm each other with musical notes and rhythm 分詞片語修飾language

    句意為:

    在他們以明確的語言,即以音樂調子及節奏來表達彼此愛意之前 ,對於人類祖先不論男女的存疑是其來有自的---------
