    Singapore, itself (which is) predominantly an ethnic Chinese state, has always regarded Taiwan as a province of China.

    itself的修飾語(形容詞子句)將which is省略後只剩下「述部修飾語predominantly」和「主詞補語an ethnic Chinese state」

    itself是Singapore的同位語(用來強調的,如I myself)。

    形容詞是ethnic和Chinese,用來修飾state,所以放在冠詞an和名詞state之間。

    本句也可用同位語的方式來寫:Singapore, an ethnic Chinese state, has always regarded Taiwan a a province of China.

    We can use "predominantly" to indicate which feature or quality is most noticeable in a situation. For example, although it is predominantly a teenage problem, acne can occur in early childhood. (see "predominantly" in Collins Cobuild English Dictionary p.1293)

    Poster! I think you shall ask:

    Why can I use THREE adjectives (predominant, ethnic, and Chinese) to describe state?

    After all, we can have:

    a smart cute little girl (3 adjectives to describe "girl")

    However, master AP gives you the answer for my revised question.

    2014-05-28 06:38:58 補充:

    Let me explain this a little more in detail:

    for the example: a smart cute little girl

    All three adjectives describe "girl".

    However, for your question:

    "ethnic Chinese" describes "state", and "predominantly" describes "ethnic Chinese".

    2014-05-28 06:40:44 補充:

    It means, you cannot use adjective to describe adjective, but you have to use adverb to describe adjective.

    Hence, if you use "predominant", it will describe "state", then it would NOT make sense.

    2014-05-28 06:42:17 補充:

    because Singapore is NOT a predominant state.

    2014-05-28 07:42:09 補充:

    Maybe, I shall say:

    because Singapore is NOT a predominant state YET.

    2014-05-28 07:46:14 補充:

    For not losing the focus, it is not because "Singapore is NOT a predominant state YET", it is simply because "what you want to describe!"

    Predominantly是副詞用來修飾ethnic Chinese(形容詞)

    > because Singapore is NOT a predominant state.

    It is becoming one, at least financially, though.

    > but you have to use adverb to describe adjective.

    Melon needs to remember my YK+ post on:

    > "what you want to describe!"

    Indeed! The intention of the writer is everything for sure.
