2014托福考试写作标点使用(三)

标点符号看似不起眼,但是它们却也是评分的标准之一,切不可忽视。

四 冒号 Colon

用在一个完整的句子结束,用于引出清单、长引语和解释。

1 List:

例如

The store will close at noon on the following dates: November 26, December 24, and December 31.

2 Long Quotation:

In his book Life Lines, Forrest Church maintains that people should cry more: “Life is difficult. Some people pretend that it is not, that we should be able to breeze through. Yet hardly a week passes in which most of us don’t have something worth crying about. ”

3 Explanation:

Here’s a temporary solution to a dripping faucet: Tie a string to it, and let the drops slide down the string to the sink.

五 分号 Semicolon

1 用来分隔两个单独的句子,有时可以看作是句号

例如

Lonnie heard a noise and looked out the window; the only thing there was his reflection.

He checked on the new baby every five minutes; he was afraid something would happen to her.

Lizards become sluggish at night; they need the sun’s warmth to maintain an active body temperature.

We knew a power failure had occurred; all the clocks in the building were forty-seven minutes slow.

2 用来分隔列举的个体(在个体内部使用逗号的时候) 。

例如:

Maya’s children are named Melantha, which means “black flower;” Yomina, which means “dove:” and Cynthia, which means “moon

goddess.”(注意,标点在引号里面哦)

My parents’ favorite albums are Rubber Soul, by the Beatles; Songs in the key of life, by Stevie Wonder; and Bridge over Trouble Water, by Simon and Garfunkel.

六 破折号 Dash

破折号是长度介于逗号和句号之间的停顿,用来引出生动具体的表述。 例如:

I was so exhausted that I fell asleep within seconds – standing up. He has many good qualities – sincerity, honesty, and thoughtfulness – yet he had few friends.

The pardon form the governor finally arrived – too late.

注意:

打破这号的方法是“空格”+两个“-”+空格,如果手写的话是两个字母的长度。

七 圆括号 Parentheses

圆括号用来解释说明。

例如:

In 1913, the tax on an annual income of $4,000 (a comfortable wage at that time) was one penny.

八 连字符 Hyphen

1 用来把两个以上的单词连在一起,组成新的单词

例如:

The light-footed burglar silently slipped open the sliding glass door.

While being interviewed on the late-night talk show, the quarterback announced his intention to retire.

With a needle, Rich punctured the fluid-filled blister on his toe. 2 用来连接因为换行而中断的单词,注意,一定要按音节分,而且尽量避免这种现象。

Selena’s first year at college was a time filled with numerous new pres-

sures and responsibilities
