  考研界公认的一条准则:得阅读者得天下。阅读的考察大到篇章,小到标点符号,所以我们要掌握各个细节,知己知彼方能百战不殆。下面跨考教育英语教研室阅读主讲靳姝老师为大家总结考研阅读中常用标点符号,希望引起考生对阅读理解中标点加以重视。   1. 逗号 comma   用于分割并列成分。考研重点:两个逗号之间,或者一个逗号之后,如果是补充说明成分时,跳过不看。Eg. Some huge American industries, such as consumer electronics, hadshrunk or vanished in the face of foreign competition.   2.句号 period/full stop   ①用于陈述句,表示一个句子的结束, 起分割切分句子作用。   ②用于某些缩略词之后。比如Mr.、 Ms.、 etc.等等。如果句号作为简写符号使用,那么这个词语简写前后面的符号应该照常写上,因为简写号并非句号,也不遵循句号的语法。比如Entreprise Co., Ltd或者I invited Tom, Jerry, etc..(注意两个点)。   ③用作小数点   3. 问号   考研英语阅读文章中的问号一般都是设问的功能,只问不答,答案不言自明。Eg1.考研难道没有价值吗?另外,如果开篇就是问句,那么则属于问题答案型文章,对问题的回答就是全文主旨。   4. 冒号(colon):   冒号前后是从抽象到具体的过程,后面进一步补充说明前面的内容。   Eg.1997 passage 3 Q2   60. The word "pervasive" (Line 1,Paragraph 2) might mean ________.   [A] widespread [B] overwhelming   [C] piercing [D] fashionable   We live in a society in which the medicinal and social use of substances(drugs) is pervasive: an aspirin to quiet a headache, some wine to be sociable,coffee to get going in the morning, a cigarette for the nerves.   5.分号(semi-colon)前后是并列关系,包括结构上并列和语义上的并列。   For us, this means that evolution is over;the biological Utopia has arrived. (2000 Passage2)   6. 引号(quotation marks):①引用 ②强调 ③讽刺   Eg1 “Scientific” creationism,which is being pushed by some for “equal time” in the classrooms whenever thescientific accounts of evolution are given, is based on religion, not science.   7. 括号(parentheses ) ①解释说明生词。②补充说明   Drugs (substances) that affect the central nervous system and alterperception, mood, and behavior are known as psychoactive substances. (1997,Text 3)   9. 破折号(dash)   ①一个破折号后面起补充说明或评价判断。   I am an idiot - the stupidest kind of all.   “This book stands for reason itself.” And so it does — and all would bewell were reason the only judge in the creationism/evolution debate.   ②两破折号之间其补充说明,可先跳过不看。   In Australia—where an aging population, life-extending technology andchanging community attitudes have all played their part—other states are goingto consider making a similar law to deal with euthanasia.   10.省略号(ellipsis) ...   英文中的省略号的作用和汉语是一样的。当省略号在句围并且有下文时,应该打四个点,最后一个为句号。如:And it flew further, and further, and further.... Jorge smiled andturned back.当省略号在句尾并作为语气延长的作用时,应使用修辞前的标点,如:Do you love me...?其余情况下使用三个点。如:The Martians...they just...just bombed our...our town, pleasesend...more...
