第一句:

解析何凯文每日一句

主干识别:

Some eastern people believe

切分成分:

1. animals are conscious beings 宾语从句主干

2. that experience, emotions 定语从句主干

3. analogous to human desire, fear, pain, sorrow, and joy.(定语)

4. in varying degrees,状语

参考译文:

一些东方人相信动物是有意识的生物,它们在不同程度上体验到类似人类欲望、恐惧、痛苦、悲伤和欢乐的情绪。

第二句:

This idea that animals are conscious was long unpopular in the West, but it has lately found favor among scientists who study animal cognition.何凯文每日一句

并列句一的主干:

This idea was long unpopular in the West

切分成分:

animals are conscious (同位语从句)

并列句二的主干:

it has lately found favor among scientists

切分成分:

who study animal cognition(定语从句)

参考译文:

动物是有意识的,这一观点在西方长期不受欢迎,但最近受到了研究动物认知的科学家们的认可。

所以思考题:

Some scientists have come to believe that animals are conscious.

一些科学家开始相信动物是有意识的。

这个说法是正确的。

句子来源和文章背景:何凯文每日一句

这篇文章来自大西洋月刊最-新的一期:

动物能不能感受这个世界。动物怎么感知这个世界。西方的观点一直认为动物是不能感受这个世界的,动物没有人类这样的情绪。而从二战结束以后,西方的科学家开始研究动物的智商和认知,并且接受动物也是有情绪和意识的这一观点。(文章挺有意思,值得一读。)
