英 文 詞 性 問 題

Many people died in the tragic car accident, prompting lawmakers to pass the new law against drunk driving.

為甚麼逗點後面那一段沒有動詞

一個句子不是都要S+V

已更新項目:

不是吧= =drunk是形容詞吧= =

    Many people died in the tragic car accident, prompting lawmakers to pass the new law against drunk driving.

    = Many people died in the tragic car accident, which prompted lawmakers to pa the new law against drunk driving.

    原句的prompting ...是一個分詞片語,修飾的對象是前面整個主要子句,所以可改寫成一個sentential relative clause。是許多人在這次汽車故中死亡,才讓立法者通過新法來懲罰酒駕的。

    類似的句子:

    John made high grades on his exams, which made his parents happy.

    快樂的原因不是exam,而是John made high grades。

    形容詞子句是以前面的全句,而非其中某個字或片語,為修飾對象。

    後面那一段叫做分詞片語,當形容詞用,補充說明前面那個car accident.

    動詞其實是drunk喝(過去式動詞)
