so......that 的that可省略嗎??

so......that 的that可省略嗎??

Simon was so absorbed in his book, he didn't even notice me come in.

這句中間沒有對等連接詞,它只用逗點連接,是因為省略that 還是其他原因嗎?字典的例句,不知道有沒有錯。

Update:

這個例句的so只是強調而已 ~~照你說的那這句不就沒有對等連接詞,那文法就錯囉,所以字典寫錯?! 我知道可以把逗點改成句點或分號後文法就正確了,但我要確認so......that 的that可不可以省,你沒有回答我到底可不可以。

Update 2:

不可省略!!

Simon was so absorbed in his book, he didn't even notice me come in. (X)

你很確定字典錯嗎????

Simon was so absorbed in his book, so he didn't even notice me come in.

有兩個SO的用法嗎?????..so absorbed in his book, so he didn't.. 沒看過@@"

    版主您好:

    文法是死的, 語言是活的; 學文法是為了更有效率地學習英文, 而不是把自己綁死.

    [that]有時候可以省, 有時候不行. 學生經常被這樣的規則搞得暈頭轉向. 英文雖然不像數學那麼精密, 但是多半也是可以講道理的. 省略的原則也是一樣.

    在老外的眼中, 除了一些基本的大原則之外, 最重要的就是句子的寫法要讓人看得懂, 表達出清楚明確的語意, 不會模稜兩可.

    [so ... that ...]這種句型, [that]可以省! 而且多半不用逗號.

    Higgins is so good, he even classed up Ally McBeal in its twilight years, ...

    http://209.85.175.104/search?q=cache:0dCInlyF49UJ:...

    Don't be deceived, this guy is so good he makes it look easy.

    http://209.85.175.104/search?q=cache:P3hNaOHn5CkJ:...

    His memory is so good he remembered every move of all his games.

    http://209.85.175.104/search?q=cache:_nnYM3tToL0J:...

    Simon was so absorbed in his book(,) he didn't even notice me come in.

    可以省是因為並不影響句子的閱讀及語意的了解.

    這樣的[that]就不能省:

    That he is good at singing is well known.

    He is good at singing is well known. (X)

    這個[that]是一個標記, 告訴讀者[he is ...]看起來雖然像是[主詞+動詞]的結構, 其實不然; 真正的動詞仍未露臉. 有這樣的認知與預期, 當讀者看到第二個[is]時, 自然就完全了解而不會覺得突兀.

    但是當您寫成:

    It is well known (that) he is good at singing.

    因為有[he]當成一個分界點, 所以那個[that]就不是那麼重要, 尤其是在口語裡.

    The book that is very thick is a dictionary.

    The book is very thick is a dictionary. (X)

    The book (that) he gave me is interesting.

    也是同樣的道理.

    不知道您有沒有注意到, 上面的第二個例子事實上省略了兩個[that]. 最完整的寫法是:

    Don't be deceived (by the fact that) this guy is so good (that) he makes it look easy.

    但是話說回來, 如果您要參加考試(尤其是國內的), 還是照傳統的教條走吧. 不必跟自己的分數與權益過不去. ^_^

    In Modern/ oral English, as Kevin said, "[so ... that ...]這種句型, [that]可以省! 而且多半不用逗號."

    Yehoo is right! Definitely an ET (English teacher)! I am an ET too.

    Remember in English, it is always 一連兩動(有一個連接詞才可以有兩個動詞).

    不可省略!!Simon was so absorbed in his book, he didn't even notice me come in. (X)前後兩個子句之間一定要有連接詞改成

    Simon was so absorbed in his book that he didn't even notice me come in.或是Simon was so absorbed in his book, so he didn't even notice me come in.

    或是Because Simon was so absorbed in his book, he didn't even notice me come in.

    要不然, 就將逗號改成分號Simon was so absorbed in his book; he didn't even notice me come in.
