采用不同的句子开头是使句子多样化的手段之一。我们造句及写作的时候不应该总是用 “subject-verb-object” 的结构顺序,而应该尽量用不同的方式展开一个句子。不同的句子开头既可以美化句子,同时也能使句子与句子之间自然过度,衔接自然,以免过于依靠过渡词。在 TWE 考试中主考官对句子结构的多样化也非常的重视,看看常见的句子开头的方法!


1. 用副词开头,常见的情形有:

  (1) 副词修饰全句

  Luckily, he didn’t know my phone number; otherwise, he would bother me.

  Incredibly, Helena got straight A in her school report this semester.

  Interestingly, cats and dogs can hardly get along well in a house.


  obviously undoubtedly

  apparently fortunately

  clearly unfortunately

  incredibly luckily

  unluckily surprisingly


    这些副词大多数表示说话人对全句的看法,在意思上相等与 “It is ... 形容词that ...” 。 e.g:

  Obviously, he is nervous about the test. =It is obvious that he is nervous about the test.

  Unfortunately, he tripped over and fell in the mud. =It is unfortunate that he tripped over and fell in the mud.

    (2) 夸大副词

  Hurriedly, the man drew me a scratch map to show me the direction.

  Dangerously, the drunkard sped down the street.

  Slowly and gently, snowflakes were drifting down from the sky.

    (3) 副词表示某一地域或某一领域

  Geographically, Canada is the biggest country in the world.

  Financially, she is independent, but emotionally she is dependent.

    2. 用插进语开头,表示说话人的态度,或使句子的意思更加正确:

  Strangely enough, Jennifer does not enjoy sunshine and beach.

  Generally speaking, winter in Vancouver is gloomy.


  no wonder no doubt

  in other words in my opinion

  in conclusion in fact

  as a matter of fact

    3. 用形容词、并列形容词或形容词短语开头,修饰句子的主语,表示主语的特征或状态:

  Tasty and crisp, potato chip are a favorite snack for both children and adults.

  Happy at his good marks at school, the little boy skipped on his way home.

  Desperate and hopeless, the poor man committed suicide.

    4. 用分词、分词短语开头:

  (a) 修饰句子主语,表示主语所处的状态或主语同时进行的另一个较谓语动词次要的动作:

  Spoiled by his parents, the naughty boy always insists on things he wants.( 状态)

  Sea gulls flying over the water, the old fisherman flung his fishing meat into the open sea.

    8. 用过渡句开头,表示此句与上下句的关系:

  In fact, she was a kindhearted woman.

    9. 用同位语开头,表示主句位于动词发生的时间、地点、原因、方式、条件等:
