Legionnaires' disease is a serious and sometimes fatal form of pneumonia. Legionnaires' disease is caused by infection with Legionella bacteria which are found naturally in the environment and thrive in warm water and warm damp places. Man-made water systems sometimes provide environments that let Legionella bacteria increase to large numbers. These man made systems include showers, spa pools, fountains, and air conditioning cooling towers. People usually get Legionnaires' disease by breathing in mists that come from a water source contaminated with Legionella bacteria.

军团病是一种非常严重的、有时可以致命的肺炎,由军团杆菌感染引起,这种细菌生活在自然环境中,活跃于温水里及潮热的地方。人工供水系统有时为军团杆菌的大量繁殖提供了环境。这些系统包括淋浴器、矿泉池、喷泉以及空调设备的冷却水塔。人们通常由于吸入被军团杆菌污染的水源散发的水雾而感染上军团病。

名词性wh-从句 (2)

1)由wh-词引导的名词从句叫做名词性wh-从句。Wh-词包括who, whom,. whose, whoever, what, whatever, which, whichever等连接代词和where, when, how, why等连接副词。Wh-从句的语法功能除了和that-从句一样外,还可充当介词宾语、宾语补语和间接宾语等,例如:

同位语:  I have no idea when he will return. 
我不知道他什么时候回来。

形容词宾语:I'm not sure why she refused their invitation.  我尚不能肯定她为什么拒绝他们的邀请。

介词宾语: That depends on where we shall go. 
那取决于我们去哪儿。

2)Wh-从句作主语也常用先行词it做形式主语,而将wh-从句置于句末,例如:
 It is not yet decided who will do that job. 
 还没决定谁做这项工作。
 It remains unknown when they are going to get married.  他们何时结婚依然不明。
