6、虚拟语气省略条件从句或主句

表示虚拟语气的条件句的主句或从句有时可以省略,而省略部分的含义仍有所体现。

1)省略条件从句,如:

It would be very nice.

You could have done it yourself. (省略If you had wanted to.上下文可以看出You didn’t want to.) (Fact: You didn’t do the work yourself because you didn’t want to.)

I wouldn’t smoke. (省略If I were you.) (表面上说我,实际上说你。这是一种委婉的表达法。(Fact: You smoke very often. I advise you not to smoke any more.)

2)省略主句:在强调条件从句时,常省略主句,这种句子常表示一种“已不能实现”的愿望,主要用于If only 引导的感叹句中。

For example:

If only he were here!

If only I knew more!

If only he had stayed with us!


本期作业:(英译中
