  1. 独立结构的实质和类型

  所谓“独立结构”(Absolute Construction)实质就是带有自己主语的非限定分句和无动词分句。如前所述,非限定分句和无动词分句通常是以主语的一定成分作为自己的逻辑主语,从而依附于主语。但也有一些非限定分句和无动词分句带有自己的主语,从而在结构上与主语不发生关系,因此叫“独立结构”。其实,所谓“独立结构”也并非真正独立,它还是一种从属分词。



  (1) A number of officials followed the emperor,some to hold his robe,others to adjust his girdle,and so on. 许多官员尾随皇帝之后,有的拎着皇帝的衣袍,有的则给他整腰带等。(some to hold…和others to adjust…为不定式独立结构)

  (2) There being nothing else to do,we left. 由于没有其它事情可做,我们离开了。(There being…为-ing分词独立结构)

  (3) She gazed,her hands clasped to her breast. 她凝视着,双手叉在胸前。(her hands clasped…为-ed分词独立结构)

  (4) He went off,gun in hand. 他手里拿着枪离开了。(gun in hand为无动词独立结构)

  (5) The floor wet and slippery,we stayed outside. 由于地板又湿又滑,我们呆在屋外。(The floor wet…为无动词“独立结构”)

  (7) The manager sat quietly in the office,(his) eyes closed. 经理静静地坐在办公室里,双目紧闭。


  (8) Their room was on the third floor,its window overlooking the sports ground. 他们的房间在三层楼上,窗户俯视着操场。

  (11) The professor was slammed against the wall,his body frisked,his wrists handcuffed,his dignity lost. 教授被猛推倒墙上,被搜了身,手被拷着,尊严尽失。

  (14) The last bus giving gone,we had to walk home. =Because the last bus had gone,we had to walk home. 由于末班车已开走,我们只得步行回家。

  (15) Her shirt caught on a nail,she could not move. =As her shirt was caught on a nail,she could not move. 由于裙子被钉子钩住,她不能移动。
