  <播放语音>

Even buildings made of steel and glass usually have a cornerstone, often engraved with the date construction began. It is a talisman intended to bring luck not only during construction, but throughout the life of the building. The custom has its origins in prehistoric times, when it was believed the gods must be compensated for the land a structure occupies. Originally a sacrifice, often human, was offered, but eventually it became common to put money or other valuables inside or under the first stone laid.

建筑物一般都有奠基石,就连钢和玻璃结构的建筑物也有,上面通常刻有开工日期。奠基石是一种辟邪物,是为了给建筑在施工期间,乃至在建筑物的整个寿命期间带来好运。这一习俗起源于史前时期,那时有种迷信说因为建筑要占地,必须给土地诸神以补偿。最初是祭神,通常是用活人作祭品,但最终通行的办法是把钱或其他有价值的东西搁在铺下的第一块石头里或底下。

 
 => 简明语法


比较so和 such


  其规律由so与such的不同词性决定。such 是形容词,修饰名词或名词词组,so是副词,只能修饰形容词或副词。so 还可与表示数量的形容词many,few,much, little连用,形成固定搭配。

so + adj.         such + a(n) + n.
so + adj. + a(n) + n.   such + n. (pl.)
so + adj. + n. (pl.)    such +n. (pl.) 
so + adj. + n. [不可数]  such +n. [不可数]

so foolish         such a fool 
so nice a flower      such a nice flower
so many/ few flowers    such nice flowers
so much/little money.   such rapid progress 
so many people       such a lot of people


  so many 已成固定搭配,a lot of 虽相当于 many,但 a lot of 为名词性的,只能用such搭配。
  so…that与such…that之间的转换既为 so与such之间的转换。
