编辑点评: 在新SAT语法考试中有哪些难点和备考注意事项呢?很多考生想到的可能是逻辑结构、标点符号或者是图表题。但是,小编今天为大家讲解的是语法考试选项中易混淆词汇这个难点。

易混淆词汇(confused words)是新SAT语法考试的一个考点,很多考生会在这里丢分。这些混淆的词汇往往呈现两种情况,一种是拼写或发音很相近,一种就是物主限定词的混淆。下面小编为大家详细讲解一下这两个分类在新SAT语法考试中的考试情况,并看一些混淆词汇的真题帮助大家更好的理解。

一、拼写或发音相近的词

例如:censor sensor

1、censor is to prohibit free expression. 抑制

例句:It is wrong to censor the press.

2、A sensor is something that interprets stimulation. 传感器

例句:Our security system includes a motion sensor.

二、物主限定词

另一易混淆词就是物主限定词了,比如your, their, its等。这类词虽然看起来非常简单,但是如果不注意的话,考试时它们也会常常“以假乱真”,导致错选。针对这两种情况,用一道真题来给大家解析:

例题:

Among all music formats, only online streaming and vinyl saw growth in 2014. Both digital downloads and CD sales declined. The resurgence of vinyl, a music format many have believed to be all but extinct, is surprising. The reason for its resurgence depends on one’s (1) prospective. Some fans of vinyl believe that music simply sounds better on a record, but since many vinyl albums are reproduced from CDs, this is unlikely to be true. In truth, the resurgence of vinyl is likely about nostalgia and identity, as vinyl allows people to own and display (2) there musical tastes.

1. A) NO CHANGE

B) prospect

C) persecute

D) perspective

2. A) NO CHANGE

B) they’re

C) their

D) your解析:第一题中考察的四个单词(prospective,prospect,persecute,perspective)的发音是不是很像呢?根据原文句子的语境,原文是说vinyl(黑胶唱片)这种音乐的回归是有点“蹊跷”,它回归的原因要视音乐爱好者的个人观点而定。认真比较选项中三个发音相近的单词,只有D选项是表示“point of view”,最能make contextual sense.

第二题考察的是物主限定词的用法,根据上下文语境,作者在这里想表达“vinyl可以让人们拥有并展示个人音乐品味”,最佳答案应该是C选项中的plural possessive pronoun(物主代词)their.
