(a) now that -- 現在(已)
eg. Now that the examination is over, I can have more time for my leisure.
現在(由於) examination 已完結, (因此) I can . . .
Seeing that the examination is over, I can have more time for my leisure.
則句子「不太適合」--因為 “examination is over"並不需要 察覺到！
(b) seeing that -- 眼見/察覺到
eg. i) Seeing that Bobby has enough, he takes away the dog’s food bowl.
眼見/覺得 Bobby已經吃夠了, (所以) 他拿走the dog’s food bowl.
若寫 ii) Now that Bobby has enough, he takes away the dog’s food bowl.
現在Bobby已經吃夠了, (所以) 他拿走the dog’s food bowl.
用Now that或 Seeing that在某一句子上, 意思會有差別;
有些用兩者都可以-- like (b), 但有些卻應採用其中一款-- like (a)！
(c) seeing as -- 視為
eg. Seeing his car as his wife, he won’t lend it to anybody.
他把車子視為太太, . . .
“seeing as” 與 “seeing that” 意思完全不同！
