求文法解 ”it makes up for with...”

原句

What Everest lacks in architectural grace, it makes up for with sheer, overwhelming mass.

請問這個句型, 在文法上, 應該如何來理解?

what ... lacks in ..., it makes up for ...

(不是問句子翻譯)

Update:

少打一個字, "What ... lacks in ..., it makes up for with ..." 中的 "make up for".

for 是介係詞, with 也是介係詞, 兩個介係詞怎麼合在一起?? 成為 it makes up for with ...

我猜 "make up for" 本身是一個動詞片語??

請教哪裡可以有資料(網路或書)可以查詢.

    這裡也許有您要的解答, "make up for" is a phrasal verb

    http://www.englishpage.com/prepositions/phrasaldic...

    [Phrasal Verb] make up for

    [Definition] compensate for

    [Example] Allen made up for being late by getting me flowers.

    您看來是懂這前半句"what ... lacks in ...,", 就不多解釋了. 關於 "make up for", 您說的也對, 網路資料已列於上. 如果將原句改寫不知您是否會比較了解其句型及文法.

    原句:

    What Everest lacks in architectural grace, it makes up for with sheer, overwhelming mass.

    改寫為以下句子:

    The things Everest lacks in architectural grace can be "made up for" (or: "compensated for") with sheer, overwhelming mass.

    sorry, [更正]

    改寫為以下句子:

    The things Everest lacks in architectural grace [are] "made up for" (or: "compensated for") with (its) sheer, overwhelming mass.

    p.s. 這個改寫句型只是幫助您了解原句結構, 並不是很完美的句型, 這是我自己了解原句型的方式.

    What Everest lacks in architectural grace, it makes up for with sheer, overwhelming mass.

    it makes up for 是動詞片語,是彌補的意思。with則是「用」的意思,為文意而使用的介係詞,和前面的動詞片語無關。其實多的片,奇摩電子字典就查得到,底下是很多有用的連結,你可以多利用:

    What Everest lacks in architectural grace, it makes up for with sheer, overwhelming mass.

    什麼是艾弗勒斯特所缺少的在建築學的優美,它以十足地壓倒性的大量彌補。

    makes up for 是一個動詞片語“補償,彌補”他的受詞是What子句

    with sheer 又是副詞片語。

    what 是關係代名詞, 來指稱 Everest缺乏的東西 (未知)

    而這裡的 in 是說在architectural grace方面是Everest所 lacks的

    makes up for是建築物的建立代表的意義

    最後的 with~ 有眾志成城的意謂
