not only....but also

我在一篇文章看到下面的一段句子.

Anyone who has ever come across parrot in a pet store can attest to the fact that they not only imitate what yoy say but that can actually produce human speech.

想請問 如果這句把改成not ony... but also 用法改為放在名詞子句前(且用嚴謹的文法的表示),後面的but also的also要連在一起放還是要把also放在that子句裡???

Anyone who has ever come across a parrot in a pet store can attest to the fact not only that they imiatate what humans say but that they can also actually product human speech.---->請問這裡的also可以放在that子句的裡面嗎??還是but also that they can actually produce human speech.要這樣寫??

Hi Louis,

想請問not only..but also連接兩個子句時,後面的but also的also是要和but分開放嗎或省略

(......not also +名詞子句 or ..but s+also+動詞....)?

像你提出的例句

I do care not only what you have said but also what you have done.

這是兩個當受詞的名詞子句,用not only but also對等連結。

後面的這個名詞子句but what you have also done->可以這樣寫嗎?

請問Louis,

Not only the flower smells great, but also its leaves taste good. (連接對等子句)

(1)上句的not only放句首且連接兩個主要子句的話要倒裝嗎??這句這樣寫是對的嗎?

(2)not only..but also連接兩個主要子句時,but also的also可以省略或放在句中,而連接兩個子句(例名詞子句或副詞子句.....時,also也可以省略,但不能放在句中.---->請問可以這樣解釋嗎??

我一直搞不清but also的also到底要放句中或省略這個用法,可以麻煩在解釋清楚嗎?

請問Lousi,

那這句子是錯的嗎??

Not only the flower smells great, but also its leaves taste good.

不能這樣寫嗎???只要把not only放句首且連接兩個子句就要倒裝囉??

請問Louis,

在你提的例句中

Not only the bathroom was flooded, but also the rest of the house.

第二個子句省去述部(以免重複)。

(1)這句的not only but also是連接兩個主要子句還是連接兩個單字的句型?

(2)這句的第二個子句原句應是but the rest of the house was also flooded這樣嗎??

(3)且省去述部的話but also可以連在一起寫嗎?還是要分開but the rest of the house was as well

    你引用的句子和新造的句子好像在語意在和結構上都有問題。因為...the fact後面的名詞子句是其同位語,應該只有[一個]名詞子句,不會用對等的not only ... but also ...帶出兩個名詞子句來當the fact的同位語。

    應該是the fact that they not only xxx...but also xxx....讓名詞子句有兩個對等的述部。

    述部可以用類似下面的方式對等(共用同一個主詞):

    She not only sings like an angel, but also dances divinely.

    Parrots not only can sing, but also can speak.

    兩個子句對等時,狀況如下:

    Not only do they need clothing, but they are also short of water.

    2012-12-30 11:41:58 補充:

    I do care not only what you have said but also what you have done.

    這是兩個當受詞的名詞子句,用not only ... but also...對等連結。

    2013-01-05 11:09:08 補充:

    I do care not only what you have said but also what you have done.

    用not only ... but also對等連結兩個的名詞子句時,but also可以省去其中的also。

    所以後面的這個名詞子句寫成but what you have also done時,其中的also與but無關,是另外一個用來修飾have done的副詞。你可以這樣寫。

    2013-01-08 18:10:35 補充:

    Not only the flower smells great, but also its leaves taste good.

    要寫成; Not only does the flower smell great, but its leaves also taste good.(but和also要分開)

    或:Not only does the flower smell great; its leaves also taste good.(用分號時,可省去but)

    2013-01-08 18:12:48 補充:

    Not only the bathroom was flooded, but also the rest of the house.

    第二個子句省去述部(以免重複)。

    2013-01-08 18:19:47 補充:

    所以如果not only..but also被用來連接一個compound sentence時,後面的also要和but分開,放在第二個子句的主詞和述部之間。如你所述。

    2013-01-08 18:26:36 補充:

    Not only did he hear it, but he saw it as well. (also省略)

    It is not only economical but (also) good for the health. (also可省略)

    2013-01-08 18:27:41 補充:

    as well有also的意思,所以不會再寫出also。

    2013-01-10 19:37:22 補充:

    Not only the bathroom was flooded, but also the rest of the house.

    (1)這裡的not only but also是連接兩個對等子句的句型

    (2)這句的第二個子句原是but the rest of the house was also flooded

    (3)省去述部的狀況,but also應連在一起寫

    (4) 寫成but the rest of the house as well亦可(不要加was)

    Not only do its flowers smell great, but its leaves also taste good.才對

    或Not only do its flowers smell great, but its leaves taste good as well.

    Not only位於句首時,會造成主詞和動詞部分倒裝.

    請參見趙振才著Longman出版<英語常見問題大詞典>p.660

    2013-01-11 09:40:31 補充:

    趙振才提供的類似句子(用not only...but also結合的兩個對等句):

    Not only did they break into his office and steal his books, but they also tore up his manuscripts.

    Not only had the poor man been arrested, but he had been sent to prison as well.

    2013-01-11 10:52:10 補充:

    除非是故意強調,英文修辭,為了讓文字簡潔,有不重複使用相同用語的習慣。

    所以我們不能說把述部重複了就算錯誤。

    你可以寫成兩個主詞對等的狀況,共用一個述部:Not only the bathroom but also the rest of the house was flooded.(動詞要跟後面的主詞一致)

    Not only you but (also) he is right.

    2013-01-11 12:51:04 補充:

    Not only the flower smells great, but also its leaves taste good.

    這句有語病,因為its leaves = the flower's leaves

    2013-01-11 16:32:51 補充:

    主詞相同時,不如寫成The man is not only nice but also polite.比較簡潔,而且重點明確(主詞補語比主詞重要)。

    正確之外,最好還要講求優美。

    2013-01-11 17:25:53 補充:

    我想不通他會唱歌和他的兄弟會打籃球有什麼邏輯關係?應該是牛頭不對馬嘴吧。你的寫法大概有問題。

    下面這種邏輯才成立:

    不但他會唱歌,他的兄弟也會。

    他不但會唱歌,還會打球。

    2013-01-11 18:10:47 補充:

    Not only will the house be sold, but its furniture will also be auctioned.

    這樣寫才合適。

    請問Louis,

    下面這個句子是對的嗎?

    Not only the flower smells great, but also its leaves taste good.

    not only but also引導兩個子句,but also的also為什麼不是放在句中?

    這句可以這樣表達嗎?

    2013-01-11 10:10:21 補充:

    請問Louis,

    如你上次提的句子

    Not only the bathroom was flooded, but also the rest of the house.

    第二個子句省去述部(以免重複)。

    如果not only but also引導不同的主詞,可以寫成你上面的句子

    而後面的but also後接主詞,而不能把述部的動詞寫出來,這樣才對嗎??

    Not only the bathroom was flooded, but the rest of the house was also flooded.

    如果是這樣的寫法這句就是錯的嗎??

    2013-01-11 11:00:32 補充:

    請問Louis,

    這句為什麼是錯的

    Not only the flower smells great, but also its leaves taste good.

    (1)這句可以用你所提出的例句的用法嗎?

    (2)還是因為這句的主詞和述部動詞都不一樣所以無法用你所說的句型Not only the bathroom was flooded, but also the rest of the house ?

    (3)請問這兩句的差別是什麼?

    2013-01-11 13:40:19 補充:

    請問Louis,

    那請問如果你提的這句如果這樣寫的話是對的句型嗎?

    Not only the man is nice, but he is also polite.

    2013-01-11 17:13:53 補充:

    請問Louis,

    我剛上句寫錯了

    應該是

    Not only he can sing, but his brother also plays baseketball.

    上句可以這樣寫嗎?兩個不同主詞和不同述部的寫法,這樣寫可以嗎?

    2013-01-11 18:04:29 補充:

    請問Louis,

    我想問的是這種句型是正確的嗎?

    Not only the house will be sold, but the furniture will also go to auction.

    在not only but also的片語中我沒看過這種用法所以我想問上句的句型而言,可以這樣寫嗎??

    我所學到的這片語用法就是連接兩個子句且not only放句首就要倒裝

    因此上句的用法我沒看過,不知是否可以這樣寫呢?

    Anyone who has ever come across parrot in a pet store can attest to the fact that they not only imitate what yoy say but that can actually produce human speech.

    # Anyone who has ever "came" across the parrot"s" in a pet store can attest to the fact that they "do" not only imitate what you said, but they also can actually produce human speech.

    # 我認為最後一句也可寫成 but also they can actually produce human speech, 最上面這句反而繞口

    # came 過去完成式 p.p.

    they = parrots N.複數形

    否定要加助動詞do, 敘述的是一個既定的事實可用現在式

    以我印象 not only but also

    應該要寫成 "倒裝" (我也是有點搞不懂,可是就是要這樣,下見(can they)

    而且有點亂 (例如line 2 的they 是指anyone 還是 parrot 呢..不介意的這裡別用代名了

    而且排字亂 裝什麼高深 一開始都沒看懂

    重寫吧

    anyone who has ever come across a parrot in a pet store

    can attest to the fact that

    parrot not only can imitate what humans say

    but also "can they" actually produce human speech.

    請問這裡的also可以放在that子句的裡面嗎??---可以的,also本來就是可以放句中的副詞

    還是but also that they can actually produce human speech.---也是對的

    not only ... but also是一完整的對等連接詞片語,本來就是這樣寫
