七. 不间断句子(Run-on Sentences)


什么叫run-on sentence?请看下面的例句。


例1. There are many ways we get to know the outside world.


剖析:这个句子包含了两层完整的意思:“There are many ways.” 以及“We get to know the outside world.”。简单地把它们连在一起就不妥当了。


改为:


There are many ways for us to learn about the outside world. 或:


There are many ways through which we can become acquainted with the outside


world
