問文法問題-since

The advent of photography in the 1850s was a turning point, but some artists have used it (since to expand) the range of subjects.

這句話為什麼寫成since to expand?? 是不是省略了啥東西呀?? 看起來怪怪的??

    since 在這裡不是跟to expand搭配的它在本句中不是當做連接詞,而是當副詞用請看以下兩句你就清楚了:He has worked as a teacher since he graduated from college two years ago. --- since是連接詞引導副詞子句!He graduated from college two years ago; he has (since) worked as a teacher (ever since). ---寫since或ever since都一樣,在這裡都是當副詞修飾動詞worked!你給的句子的since是屬於我所說的第二種副詞的since (隱含有since the 1850's的意思,但上文有提到,所以就用簡略的方式表達),它所修飾的是動詞used; 至於to expand, 它是表目的的不定詞片語,指的是used it (in order) to expand (使用它以擴大. . . ), 所以你不可以把since 跟 to expand放在一起看!

  • 依我之淺見 並沒有錯 如果在since 後稍微停頓一下子 就可以了解

    but some artists have used it since, to expand the range of subjects.

    可是有一些藝術家(或攝影師)從(=since)那時(1850年)起, 已開始使用,以擴展題材的範圍.
