'no sooner had he”是什意思?
no sooner had he arrived home __ he started another journey
為什麼用'no sooner had he"!?這是什意思?
why is it than!?Why not then?
I thought then means "after something"(I ate and then drank) and than is used in comparing(he is older than her)

no sooner ... than 表示 "一...就"
例:No sooner had I opened the door than the telephone rang.
No sooner had he arrived home than he started another journey.
= As soon as he arrived home, he started another journey.
註: no sooner後往往要接完成式的倒裝形式。所以變成 had he而不是 he had.

使用 "than" 而不是 "then" 因為 no sooner ... than 是一個 set phrase，你可以想像說它是一個比較的句子，類似 He is no better than me。

則用No sooner ...than... （＝As soos as... ）
No sooner ...than...表示時間的連接詞 意指「一...就...」之義
