Several dogs were playing on the grassland near the forest. All of sudden, they found the skin of a lion. They began bravely to tear it to pieces with their teeth, saying: “We are fighting with a lion , the king of beasts!” 几条狗在森林附近的草地上玩。他们突然发现一张狮子皮。他们开始很勇敢地用自己的牙齿,要将它撕为碎片,并且说道:“我们在和兽中之王狮子战斗!”

 

   A fox passed by and saw this. He said: “If the lion were alive, you would soon find (1) that his claws were stronger than your teeth.” 一条狐狸从此经过,看到此般情景。他说:“如果狮子现在是活着的,你们很快就会发现:他的爪子比你们的牙齿要厉害得多。”

 

   The dogs stopped and thought what the fox had said was all right. Then they left the skin of the lion. 狗停止撕咬,认为狐狸所言很有道理。他们边离开了狮子皮。

 

   It is easy to kick a man that is down 2. 要踢倒下的人,是容易的。

 

Notes:

1.       If the lion were alive, you would soon find…

注意:这个句子使用的是虚拟语气,were alive + would find,所表示的内容与事实相反。“狮子如果还着活”,事实是“狮子已经死去,只剩下一张皮”;“你们就会发现”,事实是“你们不可能发现”。

2.       It is easy to kick a man that is down.

句中的不定式短语to kick a man that is down是真正的主语。其中的that is down

是定语从句,修饰前面的a man It 是形式主语,放在前面。注意:在这样的

结构中,能充当真正主语的只能是:(1)不定式。比如:It is dangerous to play with

fire.(玩火是危险的。)(2)动名词。比如:It is useless crying over spilt milk.(对

着打倒的牛奶哭是没有用的 ---- 覆水难收。)(3)从句。比如:It is reported that he was honest.(据说,他很老实。)
