    This book can explain the reason why rock 'n' roll music is so popular in America.= This book can explain why rock 'n' roll music is so popular in America.=這本書能夠解釋為何搖滾樂在美國如此流行。

    在第一句裡的why是[關係副詞]帶出一個形容詞子句(關係子句)作修飾語 ,用來限定先行詞reason。

    在第二句裡的why是[帶先行詞的關係副詞],帶出一個名詞子句當作動詞explain的受詞 。

    that可以當連接詞用來帶出一個名詞子句,當作同位語或主詞或受詞,這時子句有自己的主詞,that只是訊號字,不帶意思,如:The fact that ...(同位語)或I didn't know that she was married.(受詞)

    that也可以當關係代名詞,帶出一個限定性質的形容詞子句,當作修飾語。如:It is a song that my mother tought me.

    what可以當作[帶先行詞的關係代名詞],帶出一個名詞子句當作主詞或受詞或主詞補語。如:She showed me what she had bought.(直接受詞)

    which可以當[關係代名詞],帶出一個形容詞子句當修飾語,前面有逗號時,為非限定性質,無逗號時,為限定性質。如:Did you find the book which you were looking for? (限定性質)=Did you find the book that you were looking for?

    看到這類題目時,應先分析子句的性質(即附屬子句和主要子句之間的關係,附屬子句是主詞,受詞,同位語,補語,或修飾語),然後看附屬子句本身的結構,應該用何種方式與主句相連。不同的function word有不同的用法。

    Using "the reason why ..." is redundant. It is better to say:

    The book can explain why rock 'n' roll ....

    or

    The book can explain the reason that rock 'n' roll ...

    這本書能解釋為何搖滾樂在美國如此流行的原因。Explain 是答, why 是問。

    May I ask Mr./Ms. Ha whether "why" can also be omitted as well. Please see this site:

    你好

    請參考

    這本書有講明為什麼搖滾樂音樂會在美國很紅的原因!

    原句應是

    This book can explain the reason of why rock 'n' roll music is

    so popular in America.

    但是WHY本身有包括[of why]之意 看情況!

    美國人本身其實很懶 所以直接省略掉OF說WHY!

    2012-08-01 02:48:22 補充:

    to the person below:

    Because [of why] and [why] are words commonly used in linking two sentences, therefore,

    they'd omitted as if you are assumed that you know there are words which are connecting

    two sentences into one sentence.
