  22. on the score of 因为

  例句:There is another possibility on the score of fresh evidence.

  三. 从句和句型

  Group 1

  1. … , which leads to …

  2. with … , …

  with 结构除了表示“随着”,也可以表达“因为”。后面记得不接常规完整句子,而是名词,或者一些分词的形式。

  例句:I couldn’t sleep with the noise of the traffic.

  3. The reason why … is that …

  The reason why 后面接结果,is that 后面加原因,都是写完整的句子。

  4. This is because …

  5. The main/ primary reason is that … .

  6. That is why … .

  例句:That is why this year is likely to be just the beginning of many discussions like the one at the Munich security conference.

  7. It is only because … that …

  例句:It is only because we have become used to these extraordinarily fragile structuresthat this demand seems so outrageous.

  Group 2

  1. …, leading to …

  2. …, thus doing …

  3. …, thereby doing …

  例句:Unions often rely on volunteers to administrate, thereby keeping costs at a minimum.

  4. thereby

  例句:This is due to ignorant motorists who fail to stop and thereby put the lives of her and the children at risk.

  5. leading to


  例句:A second object was described to be identical to the one seen by the second mission,leading to the same conclusion as to its risk.

  后两个句子种的 doing,要根据句子本身表达的内容去写对应的动词。thereby 单独用的时候,一般在句中,做一个普通的副词。

  Group 3

  1. be a contributing factor

  例句:Human error may have been a contributing factor.

  2. be a factor contributing to

  3. be a contributory cause of

  例句:Smoking may be a contributory cause of the disease.

  4. be contributing to

  be a major contributor to

  attribute … to …

  … be attributed to

  … be attributable to

  contribute 和 attribute 某种程度来讲是一对反义词。前者是 A 促成了 B,后者是把 B 归因于 A。所以后者用被动来表达。

  例句1:Supermarkets are the main contributors to this mountain of food.

  例句2:Juvenile delinquency can be attributed to parental permissiveness.

  例句3:The health problems are attributable to a poor diet and lack of exercise.

  Group 4

  第 1、2 个表达强调后面的原因是最重要的,后面 3 个都表达这个原因是相对次要的。

  1. …, not least because …

  2. …, in large part because

  例句:Despite well-intentioned policies and laws, the situation on the ground is often quite different, in large part because of the difficulty of enforcement, both within and across borders.

  3. …, if for no other (better) reason than

  例句:It is essential, if for no other reason than for a unity in teaching, that each member of the school community adopts a common outlook on life.

  4. …, because at least…

  例句:Monotony is a big problem for the moralist because at least half of human's bad habits result from his fear of it.

  5. …, if only because

  例句:We are confident if only because we are making progress.

  Group 5

  1. … so … that …

  2. So … that …

  例句:So scarce is the food that many people suffer from starvation.

  3. Such … that …

  例句:Such is the moment that all greats traverse.

  4. … enough … that …

  例句:Another excellent way to eliminate error messages is to make the application smartenough that it no longer needs to make unnecessary demands.

  这几个词组都是围绕常规的“如此…以至于…”句型的一些变形。so 后面加形容词,such 后面加名词,他们两个放句首,需要倒装。

  这个表达在因果关系种不是特别常见,因为不是每次的原因都可以变到 so/ such 后面去。

  四. 基础替换词

  1.“因为”的替换中,now that 和 in that 算是比较少见特别的。前者也有“既然”的意思,而后者在牛津词典中的解释就是:for the reason that。

  因为(+从句):because/ since/ as/ for/ for the reason that / now that/ in that

  例句:Now that major change of the kind long called for is underway, it is incumbent on the international community to help ensure success by lending its full support.

  2.“所以”的替换中,除了 so/ with the result that 之外,其他一般都用在句首,并且需要大写首字母,后面加上逗号。accordingly 也有时候放在句末,表示“相应地”。

  所以(+句子):so/ therefore/ thus/ hence/ as a result/ as a consequence/ consequently/ for this reason/ for all these reasons/ so that/ accordingly/ with the result that

  例句:Many students spend two or more hours playing video games each day. As a result,their grades suffer and they sometimes need to repeat classes.

  3. 由于(+非句子):due to/ because of/ result from/ owing to/ thanks to/ on account of/ as a result of/ in consequence of

  例句:The erratic fluctuation of market prices is in consequence of an unstable economy.

  4. “导致”的意思的表达,都算是动词词组,前后需要加上主语和宾语,都不是句子的形式,而是名词或者名词性的词组、动名词、分词等。

  导致(+非句子):lead to/ cause/ contribute to/ result in/ give rise to/ bring about

  例句:Many students spend two or more hours playing video games each day. As a result,their grades suffer and they sometimes need to repeat classes.

  如果想在类似 lead to 或者 due to 后面加一长串完整的句子,我们可以写成 due to the fact that/ lead to the fact that,虽然这样啰嗦,但是以凑字数为目的,也是一个选择。
