連接詞,與However (請英文高手來回答)

有一本托福的文法書

書名叫:托福電腦化測驗 TOEFL-CBT

(封面有一張CD的圖案那本)

有一題一樣的題目常在不同章節出現

我舉其中某題來發問

Salmon are actually born in freshwater lakes, however they spend most of their adult lives in sea water.

此句中哪裡錯誤?

答案是however的地方

書中說,要嘛就改成but 要嘛就是however前面要分號( ; )

理由是說,因為一個句子有二個子句 一定要用連接詞 如but連接

或是用分號把一個句子拆成二個句子

however只是個副(adv)

但是我拿了文馨英英漢辭典、文馨最新英漢辭典、無敵cd816 pro電子字典

查however這個字

字典裡都說however是conj也是adv

並且字典裡的例句如下

文馨英英漢辭典:

It is mine, however you may use it.

文馨最新英漢辭典:

However long a vacation is, I always feel I want a few days more.

However tired you may be, you must do it.

He will never pass the examinations, however hard he woks.

無敵cd816 pro電子字典:

However hot it is, he will not take off his coat.

上面幾個辭典裡的例句

都是我找出來的 一個句子裡有二個子句

而且是用however連接...

請問however 倒底是不是連接詞

如果是的話

那 托福電腦化測驗 TOEFL-CBT 裡的那些題目

不就行得通 無需改成but 或 分號 however

有人能解答一下嗎

Update:

to 彩色豆子

噗...

那是托福裡的文法選錯題啦

他會在題目中 取四處加底線 並為A、B、C、D四選項

要大家選錯的啦

而however底下有底線 為一個選項

其他幾個我沒列出來而已啦...

Update 2:

TO 白毛弱虫也~~

但是我找了好多本辭典

都說however是conj及adv....

    however在當做連接詞時是in whatever way的意思

    你所說托福中的例句並非此種意義

    因此可判斷他是副詞

    不過這是在考標點符號嗎??

    托福還真神秘~~

    however在一般用語中當transition words(轉折詞)為副詞用法,本身無連接能力所以語分號出現或前後加comma.

    因此副詞引領一子句時擺句首後須加",".

    一般像also ` moreover`in addition` nevertheless.....都是這樣的用法

    去看however在此句中所使用的口氣決定.

    像however在此句中描述對等關係所已只式一個轉折詞所以要用副詞用法

    那but為什麼可以,因為but是Coordinators(對等連接詞),此處正好要表示對等關西

    所以可以用but,且使用對等連接詞連接時,but前也要加逗號.
