逗号无论是在中文写作还是英语写作中,都是被使用很频繁的标点符号。逗号可以帮助读者理解领悟作者书面表达,但逗号也是被滥用最普遍的符号。有些作者会再行文之中毫无根据到地使用逗号。我们必须掌握SAT语法逗号用法,才能恰如其分地运用好。

  1. 逗号:用于连接一个句子中的并列成分

  例句:The main products of the district are wool, cotton, timber and tung-oil.

  The little girl likes to sing, to dance, and to act.?

  必记公式:a and b(两个名词短语平行不用逗号)

  a, b, and c

  a, b, c, and d

  B. scientists: and

  C. scientists, and

  D. scientists, and,

  本题中,yogurt manufacturers, food scientists与government officials是并列成分,按照我们的标点公式:a, b, and c, 正确答案为C。

  2. 逗号:用于分隔插入语(同位语,非限,状语从句等)

  例句:Tom's sister, a pop singer, will appear at the opening ceremony tonight.

  题型讲解:

  第[Q41] 题中,主语是The person chosen for this task, 谓语动词是painted, 插入语部分是digital artist Eldar Zakirov,按照我们的标点公式:S,……, VO. 正确答案为D。

  3. 逗号:用于连接词FANBOYS (FANBOYS-for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so )之前

  例句:He asked the question in a loud voice, but no one answered.?

  必记公式: SVO, for/and/nor/but/or/yet/so SVO.

  需要特殊注意的是however前后的标点,以下这三种情况都是正确的。

  必记公式:

  SVO. However, SVO.

  SVO; however, SVO.

  S, however, VO.

  4. 逗号,用于状语从句、介词短语或分词短语后

  例句:When the bell rang, the teacher dismissed the class.?

  (注意,如果状语从句在主句之后,逗号通常省略。例如: The teacher dismissed the class when the bell rang.)

  In the ancient palace, they saw the throne where emperors used to sit.

  那么,在新SAT的干扰选项里常见错误有哪些呢?

  1. 逗号连接两个句子:

  SVO, SVO.

  I love the film, he loves the food. (错误)

  I love the film, and he loves the food. (正确)

  I love the film. He loves the food. (正确)

  I love the film; he loves the food. (正确)

  2. 句子的主语和谓语动词之间加了一个逗号

  S, VO.

  Few taxpayers received, the much talked-about debate.(错误)

  Few taxpayers received, the much talked-about debate. (正确)

  S, who/which vo VO

  My grandmother, who smokes a lot is ninety. (错误)

  My grandmother, who smokes a lot, is ninety. (正确)

  "标点很要紧。如果一个人标点不大会用,说明他语言不够清楚。"这是叶圣陶先生曾经强调过的。标点是辅助文字记录语言的一套符号,是文章里不可缺少的组成部分。

  逗号的主要作用是分割,通过聚集或者分割单词、词组和从句,帮我们准确地理解句子意思。掌握SAT语法逗号用法会对考生理解文章含义有很大帮助。
