not until/until的用法区别

作者: admin来源: 网络文章 时间: 2016-06-28

not until/until两者皆可接延续性动词和暂短性动词.

一、not...until指的是“直到...才”的意思,如 I did not go home until my mother called me.

我直到我妈妈打电话给我才回家.

not until的倒装与强调结构

1.当Not until位于句首时,句子要倒装.其结构为:Not until+从句/表时间的词+助动词+(主句)主语+谓语+.如:

①Not until the teacher came in did the students stop talking.直到老师进来学生们才停止讲话.

②Not until next week will the sports meet be held.直到下周才开运动会.

2. not until的强调结构为:It is / was not until+从句/表时间的词+that+.

上面两句改为强调句为:

③It was not until the teacher came in that the students stopped talking.

④It is not until next week that the sports meet will be held.

直到我结婚的时候,我才有钱买了自己的房子.

It was not until I got married that I could afford to buy a house of my own.

而until指“直到”.例如:

Go alone the street until you see the traffic light.

往前走,直到你看见交通灯.
