, of which 的用法

對於英文句子中的 , of which 用法不太懂,想請教英文達人幫我把句子意思說明清楚,有解釋更好

The pre-1992 universities, of which there are 40, are generally governed by statutes and charters.

, of which there are 40 是什麼意思就可以了, 爲什麼會出現of 呢?

是指 40 pre-1992 universities of pre-1992 universities are generally governed by statutes and characters.嗎 ??

    差不多了 用同位語的方式來理解

    The pre-1992 universities, there are 40 of the pre-1992 universities, are generally governed by statutes and charters.

    同樣的事物 再以關係代名詞來取代 就呈現出原句

    The pre-1992 universities, of which there are 40, are generally governed by statutes and charters.

    句子中的 of which 就是這樣來的 而不是只有 which

    of which there are 40 有兩個逗點隔開,是為一非限定的形容詞子句,視為插入句,是一個完整的句子.

    一般先詞要作形容詞子句中的主或受詞,

    如which無法作主詞受詞,which 之前應置介詞.

    There are 40 of pre-1992 universities . 40 of pre-1992 universitiess are generally governed by statutes and characters.

    of which 是指剛提到的東東,這裡是指The pre-1992 universities。

    The pre-1992 universities, of which there are 40, are generally governed by statutes and charters.

    整句拆開解讀較易了解:

    there are 40 pre-1992 universities.(用of which有加上小註解的用意)

    The pre-1992 universities are generally governed by statutes and charters.(這句是它的主要表達點。)

    如果只用主要表達點(The pre-1992 universities are generally governed by statutes and charters.),可能他擔心不夠清楚,所以在中間加個小註解,用以註解pre-1992 universities這主詞。

    引申用法:

    Taiwan, of which there are 23 million people, are located in Asia.

    (主要表達Taiwan是位在亞洲,中間加個小註解說Taiwan有2300萬人)。
