在sat考试的语法中,对于标点符号的考察也是很重要的一方面,常考的标点符号涉及逗号、分号、冒号、撇号和破折号几种标点的用法,今天智课小编为大家带来的就是SAT语法标点符号题 分号的用法的相关内容!

  一.分号的定义

  分号(semicolon):a punctuation mark ; used chiefly in a coordinating function between major sentence elements (as independent clauses of a compound sentence)也就是说,分号主要是在句子间起连接作用的。(而逗号是不可以连接两个完整的句子的)

  解题tips:很多时候就是从分号的定义本身去判断能否选做正确答案的,若分号前后不是完整句子,那么此选项一定是错误的。

  二.分号的常见用法

  1. 用于分开相对独立的句子成分,这些句子成分不是由并列连词连接的。例如:

  Cream the butter and sugar; add the eggs and beat well.

  2. 用于连接两个从句,第二从句由一个连接副词引导。例如:

  I used to clean house in the summer because the money was good; however, all the people whose houses I cleaned seemed to assume that because I was vacuuming their carpets I did not deserve their respect.

  Skeptics also maintain that Shakespeare could not have authored the plays because he never at tented a university; serious scholars, however, points out that many dramatists of his time did not attend college.

  3. 用于解释性表述之前。例如:

  We were fairly successfully; that is, we made our dealings and met our budget.

  4. 在使用句号的情况下,使用分号来分开一系列的举例。

  The votes against were: Precinct 1, 418; Precinct 2, 332; Precinct 3, 256.

  三.例题详解

  Living independently and demonstrating an intense work 21 ethic; the Harvey Girls became known as a transformative force in the American West, inspiring books, documentaries, and even a musical.

  A) NO CHANGE

  B) ethic:

  C) ethic, and

  D) ethic,

  答案:D

  解析:根据分号用法规则2,分号连接的是两个完整的句子,那么原文中的“Living…ethic”没有谓语动词,只是一个词组,用分号连接前后显然错误。C选项中“逗号+and”的作用=“分号”那么同样错误原因也是不对的,冒号的作用下文有涉及,主要为解释说明或举例,或引用,这里都不符号。只有逗号可以连接一个悬挂结构和主句,正确答案为D。
