請解釋the way in which ?

常看到這樣的句子 "the way in which "

ex:

" a set of basic laws or principles for a country that describe the rights and duties of its citizens and ""the way in which""" it is governed.

"We may change the way in/by which we laugh in different situations."

"This is the way in which we grow vegetables.""

    " a set of basic laws or principles for a country that describe the rights and duties of its citizens and ""the way in which""" it is governed.

    這是一個由 it is governed in that way所變成的關係子句,以the way為先行詞,而用關係代名詞which代替the way。in which在關係子句裡是述部is governed的修飾語,為副詞性質。你要把the way和in which分開來看,the way屬主要子句,而in which屬於附屬子句。

    "We may change the way in/by which we laugh in different situations."

    這是一個由 we laught in that way所變成的關係子句,道理同前一句。

    "This is the way in which we grow vegetables.""

    這是一個由 we grow vegetables in that way所變成的關係子句,道理同第一句。

    We laugh in different situations.

    We laugh in a certain way.

    We may change the way.

    以上三句都是簡單句。

    把第三句當主要子句,前兩句併入當[修飾語]就得到[複雜句]如下:

    We may change the way in which we laugh in different situations

    We grow vegetables in a certain way.

    This is the way.

    把前一句併入第二句當附屬子句就成了複雜句如下:

    Thie is the way in which we grow vegetables.

    in which 是倒裝,移到way的後面,所以第一句就沒了尾巴

    2013-03-24 16:10:12 補充:

    當a country is governed in a certain way變成一個形容詞子句來修飾the way時,就會寫成:,,, the way in which a country is governed

    同樣也是把in a certain way改成in which,然後移到附屬子句前,放在way的後面

    普通名詞受到形容詞子句限定時,要加定冠詞。the = that

    如果還不懂,請續發問。

    請容我以不符一般文法但單刀直入的方式來解釋。

    1. way可以指方式、樣子、範圍...等等。

    2. "in which"

    1) 在例句一,"the way in which" it is governed,依文意這裡的way指的是被統治的範圍或方式,所以"in which" 等於where或how。

    EX: The picture shows the way in which the city is occupied. 這幅畫表現了這個城市被占領的範圍。

    2) 在例句二,"the way in/by which we laugh",依文意這裡的way指的是笑的方式、樣子,所以"in which" 等於how。

    EX: They will choose the way in which they dance in different occasions. 他們在不同的場合會選擇跳不同的舞。

    3) 在例句三,"This is the way in which we grow vegetables",依文意這裡的way指的是種植蔬菜的方式,所以"in which" 等於how。

    EX: This is the way in which they play basketball. 這是他們玩籃球的方式。

    3. "in which"若用作"how",可以省略;"in which"若用作"where",則可改用"where"。
