在雅思阅读考试中,经常会出现一些句型复杂而且篇幅比较长的句子,对于考生来说也就是长难句。接下来小编为大家带来的是雅思阅读长难句实例分析,定语从句经常会出现在考试中的一类句型,我们来看看怎么分析和理解。

  英语和汉语中的定语有很大的不同。汉语中定语只能前置,而英语中定语既可前置也可后置。两 者的不同,不仅表现在结构上,也表现在意义上。英语中的定语从句有时从原因、结果、目的或条件等方面对中心词加以限定。因此,在对语法结构、上下文逻辑关 系深刻理解的前提下,为了更明确地表明这种逻辑关系,可以将定语从句翻译成相应的状语从句。同时值得注意的是,定语从句与中心词之间常有分割成分,而该分 割成分中与定语从句紧挨着的名词,常常会被误认为定语从句的中心词。
