名詞子句後移

原本的句子是

That he didn't show up on time is strange.

把子句移到後面去變成

It's strange that he didn't show up on time.

這裡的句子結構要怎麼分析呢?

謝謝

    That he didn't show up on time is strange.

    上句之中的that he didn't show up on time是名詞子句當主詞.

    It's strange that he didn't show up on time.

    上句之中的名詞子句 that he didn't show up on time是延遲的主詞(delayed subject); It 是虛主詞.

    英語中對較長的主詞或受詞有將其向後移動的習慣.
