'no sooner had he”是什意思?

no sooner had he arrived home __ he started another journey

yet

before

than

then

請問是哪一個呢?放進去以後翻譯是什麼?

為什麼用'no sooner had he"!?這是什意思?

Update:

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.

    我剛剛打開門電話鈴就響了。

    No sooner had he arrived home than he started another journey.

    = As soon as he arrived home, he started another journey.

    他才剛剛到家又跑去開始另一個旅行。

    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。

    no sooner..... than......

    因為前面的動作「沒有比後面的動作快很多」

    「沒有比較快」→"no sooner...than..."

    所以才會翻成「一...就...」

    如果只是死背句型的話

    句型會多到背都被不完

    試著去理解它會容易很多

    整句話的意思是↓

    他一到達家裡,就開始了另一個旅程。

    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
