    几个本地常见的句式

      有没有写过像下面这样的句子:

      “Due to growth in business, we now have the following career opportunities to offer to the right candidates.”
      &
      “Due to expansion, we have a number of vacancies within our Singapore operation and are seeking to recruit technicians.”

      这两个常常可以见到的句子都很好,很清楚。我要谈谈的只是“due to”的位置问题。

      严格地说,“due to”不管是当“由于”或“应归于”解,都不放在句前,而要出现在句后,最好是在“Be”之后,如:

    ① The company's problems are due to bad management and staff shortage.

    ② Some staff came late, due to traffic congestion.

      如果要“由于”出现在句前也行,但要用”due to”的同义词“owing to, because of, on account of”,甚至“thanks to”。因此,文前的两句话和下面两句都最好改一改:

    ③ Due to their outward appearance, American Chinese are still considered Chinese. (→ Because of)

    ④ Due to the opening up of China's economy, many people have been going there to do business. (→On account of)

      另一个本地常见的句式是:“The reason is because...”,如:

    ⑤ Janet cannot speak Mandarin well. The reason is because she has not learned it properly.

      根据句子结构,上面这话的主句是“The reason is”,后面的分句应该是名词性的才适合当接系动词“is”的补足语(complement)。因此,最好把原因副词分句“because she has not learned it properly”改为名词分句(noun clause):

      The reason is that she has not learned it properly.

      不然就要调整句式如下:

    ⑥ Janet cannot speak Mandarin well because she has not learned it properly.

    ⑦ The reason why Janet cannot speak Mandarin well is that she has not learned it properly.

      最后一个渐渐见到的句式和从属连词(Subordinating conjunction)“because”有关。

      习惯上,由“because”引发的原因副词分句(adverb clause of reason)要在主句之后出现,如上述第⑥句;又如:

    ⑧ The students carried out demonstrations because the government was corrupted.

      但是用美式英语者偶尔倒过来写:

      “Because the government was corrupted, the students carried out demonstrations.”

      一般上,这里的“because”可由“as, since, now that”取代,如下:

    ⑨ As the government was corrupted, the students carried out demonstrations.

    ⑩ Since Sam was the best candidate, he got the job.

    (11) Now that the business has grown, we have the following career opportunities to offer to suitable applicants.
