SAT语法复习中,对于一些重要的知识点,我们要做详细的备考。考试中,经常会考察关于“so”的语法知识,为了让大家更全面的备考这些知识内容,在考试中更从容的应对这类考点知识,下面小编为大家整理了详细的内容,供大家参考!

  一、“so”作为连词

  1. 释义:for that reason;and therefore

  例句:There are no more chairs available, so you'll have to stand.

  1. The problem of copyright violation, frequently compounded in certain countries because the sale and use of copyrighted materials are not tightly controlled. (OG:第八套题)

  A. violation, frequently compounded in certain countries because

  B. violation, frequently compounded in certain countries and

  C. violation, frequently compounded in certain countries when

  D. violation is frequently compounded in certain countries where

  E. violation is frequently compounded in certain countries so

  此题的考点是不完整句,谓语动词部分缺少了用于构成被动语态的助动词is,当答案范围圈定D和E时,就需要从where和so来下手了。通读题干,我们知道这里应该是因果关系,所以选择E。

  2. 释义:used to say the reason for something

  例句:Please be quiet so I can study.

  此时也可以使用so that:I'll get a map so that we can plan where to go.

  2. My mother always gave my sister and I (A) the same treats when we were little so that (B) neither of us would be (C) jealous of the other (D) . No error (E) (真题:09年10月)

  此题的考点是代词的格,答案为A。在这道题目中,so that是一个从属连词,表示“以便”。

  二、“so”作为副词

  1. 释义:used when you are emphasizing a fact by saying what the result of it is

  例句:She was so tired that she almost fell asleep at the dinner table.

  这就是大名鼎鼎的so...that句型,在SAT语法考试中屡屡出现哦!

  3. The new regulations have so complicated the process of formulating a school budget to where no one on the Board of Education is eager to undertake the task. (真题:06年10月)

  A. budget to where

  B. budget, therefore

  C. budget, even

  D. budget as

  E. budget that

  此题答案为E,so...that表达了正确的语义逻辑。

  2. 释义:and so=and therefore

  例句:Madeira has an ideal climate, and so it is not surprising that it has become a tourist paradise.

  有的同学只知道so是连词,因此看到and so的时候,会觉得是两个连词一起使用,任务是错误用法。其实在and so这个搭配中,and是连词,so是副词。请看题:

  4. Fabric was very expensive in the United States before the Industrial Revolution, this is why scraps were saved and recycled into such items as patchwork quilts and doll clothes. (真题:09年1月)

  A. Revolution, this is why

  B. Revolution, this explains why

  C. Revolution, and so

  D. Revolution and so that

  E. Revolution; resulting in

  此题答案为C,and so改正了原文连写句的错误。

  3. so...as to:used when you are emphasizing a fact by saying what the result of it is

  这个结构也表示“如此...以至于”,只不过后面要加动词原形。请看题:

  5. Cuban music was so popular in (A) the Colombian city of Cali thus becoming (B) the basis for (C) the dance scene that predominated (D) there during the 1940s. No error (E) (真题:10年1月)

  此题答案为B,应该为as to become,以与前面的so构成搭配。

  4. 同级比较的否定结构中:not so...as

  大家都知道,as...as...表示是同级比较的肯定形式,在否定句中,前一个as可以换成so,这一点在SAT语法考试中也经常考察。请看题:

  6. The director valued the actor not so much for his broad commercial appeal but because he approached every role with passion and intelligence. (真题:08年5月)

  (A) but because he approached every role with passion and intelligence

  (B) but because of his approaching every role with passion and intelligence

  (D) but for being passionate and intelligent in approaching every role

  (D) as for him approaching every role passionately and intelligently

  (E) as for his passionate and intelligent approach to every role

  此题答案为E,as与句中的not so构成比较结构,as后的for与not so后面的for构成平行。

  5. (just) as ... so ...:formal used to compare two people or things, when they are similar

  例句:Just as the French love their wine, so the English love their beer.

  这个结构在SAT语法考试中出现了多次,如下面这道题:

  7. Just as Ireland has produced many famous writers and the Netherlands on abundance of famous painters, so Finland has provided a large number of famous architects. (OG:第七套题)

  (A) so Finland has provided a large number of famous architects

  (B) Finland provides famous architects, and by large numbers

  (C) Finland’s contribution is to provided famous architects in a large number

  (D) and so then, for Finland, a large number of famous architects is provided

  (E) and like them Finland has provided a large number of famous architects

  此题答案为A。很多人以为just as是一个连词,so也是连词,不能在一起使用,其实是可以的。

  以上就是关于“SAT语法so的用法解析”的内容,希望通过上述内容的学习,大家能够更好的积累这部分的内容,预祝各位考生能够获得更高的分数。
