many of them children的問題

在月刊上看到這個句子

Every day , 6000 people , many of them children , get sice and die because they don\'t have clean water to drink .

中文是--每天有六千人--其中很多是小孩---因為沒有乾淨的水可以喝而生病死亡

請問為什麼是many of them children 而不是many of them are children

為什麼不用加BE動詞 are 呢?有這種用法嗎?

    有 因為它那是 complex sentence (合併句)

    而"many of them children" 是extra informatino(補充的資訊)

    在這句前後都要加逗號

    如果他把那句刪掉 也不會有影響

    而為什麼不用be動辭are

    因為 如果你加了are 跟後面的就不能連成一句了

    如果加了"are" 會造成文意不清 不知道到底要表達什麼

    會讓人覺得他這句 "6000千人裡很多是小孩 因為沒有乾淨的水喝而生病死亡"

    如果你硬要把"are" 加進去 就要分成兩句

    Everyday, 6000 people get sick and die because they don't have clean water to drink. In the 6000 people, many of them are children.

    Complex Sentences 是稍稍稍微高級一點的英文

    還是很普通的 高中課程

    我覺得月刊上這句話怪怪的, 若是我會這樣寫:

    There are 6000 people get sick and die everyday because they don't have clean water to drink, and most of them are children.
