The underlined word"..."refers to (means) ____. 2. Which of the following words can take the place of the word"..."? 3. Which of the following has the closest meaning B: Oh, I am having
第 7 页 共 30 页
to...(paragraph...)? 4. The word ―…‖ is most likely to mean ______. 5. What do you think the expression ―…‖ stands for? 三．猜测词义题目类型 1. 对考纲外生词的猜测 2. 对考纲内熟词新义的猜测 3. 对句义的猜测 4. 考查代词 四．常用解题方法 1. 释义法: 定义或释义关系，常由定语从句或 is, be called，be known as, be defined as 等词汇或破折号来表示；或由 that is (to say), in other words， to put it another way 引出一些具体的解释性 的短语解释生词。 2. 对比关系：常用 but, however, yet, otherwise, while, though, on the one hand…on the other hand, for one thing…for another thing, instead of 等。 3. 因果关系：常用关联词 because，as，since，for，so，thus， as a result， so, so … that, such … that， therefore 等表示前因后果。 4. 举例法：常用 such as, like，for example, for instance 等引出 例子，可根据例子隶属的类别归纳出总称词即词义。 5. 重述： or, that is ( to say ), in other words, to put it another way 6. 同义词、 反义词： 由 and 或 or, like, similarly, as …as, the same as 等连接的两个词构成同义关系；表转折关系的词常有如 but, while, however, instead of, rather than, unlike, yet, otherwise, though, on the contrary 等。 7. Word Formation 构词法： 词根是单词最基本的部分， 表达单 词的基本含义。在词根前或后加上前缀或后缀，可以用来引申 或转变原词的意义。中学高频词缀： super- (超) 小的 , 微小的 ) micro- （极微小的） mini- (极 ......
的常识将生词推测出来。 因此平时多了解英美国家的风俗习 惯，宗教信仰，社会生活等，可以帮助加深对文章的理解。 9. 代词替代法：一般来讲，代词的指代的内容多在这一句话的前 后句中。找到指代的内容后把它放在那个代词的位置上，看一 看这句话是否下前后的内容一致， 后再判定它是否为正确答案。 总结：猜测句子含义题涉及选材背景、句型结构、文章主旨、 作者观点态度等方面。联系主旨，整合上下文信息是解这类题 的关键。 首先，要确认所要求猜测句义的句子在文中的位置； 其次，审读题干，确认猜测点。 第三，整合上下文信息，确认猜测点与语境之间的关系。 第四，猜测句子的大致意思。最后，比较选择项，确定答案。 所谓―词不离句，句不离章‖讲的就是对于词语或句子的正确理 解依赖于一定的情景。猜测生词义或句意时， 一定要认真读懂 与生词密切相关的前后句子，进行合情合理的推测，排除肤浅 的表义，选择蕴含在其中的深意。 小试身手： Can you guess the meanings of the following words? 1.

(2) 同义关系和平行关系：作者在写文章时，为避免重复，同一 概念常用不同的同义词。 这种同 义关系为我们猜词带来了方 similarly;
例 2：Doctors suggest that everyone should exercise every day, especially those who do sedentary and sewing. (3) 重述式 常用词有： and, or, similarly, that is (to say), in other work like reading, typing
便。常用词：and; or; not only…but also…; besides;

likewise; in the same way, like, just as, also, as well as, in other words 或用分号引出相同 或类 似的词。 另外在特定的情况下，
our life is of a mingled yarn （纱线） ，good and ill together.‖ The underlined word ―mingled‖in the last paragraph most probably means A. simple . C. sad D. happy
作者经常通过一连串同一类型或同一范畴的词语来表达 其思 想。 如果有一生词在这一系列的同一范畴的词语中，可以通过这些 词语的特征和语义范围推 断出生 词的词义范围。
例 2：He is a resolute man. Once he makes up his mind to do something, he won‘t give it up halfway.
例 1： Doctors believe smoking detrimental to your health; they also regard drinking harmful. 例 2：The new tax law supersedes, or replaces, the law that was in effect last year. A. supervise B. review D. start to enforce
例 3：That museum is so immense that it will be impossible to see all the exhibits in one day. 3. 大语境 在阅读中， 如果通过小语境或中语境还不能猜出

C. take the place of
(3) 因果关系：在句子或段落中，若两个事物现象之间构成因果 关系， 可以根据这种逻辑 关系推测生词词义。 常见的提示词有： because，as，since，for，so，thus，as a result，therefore 等。 例 1：When some kind of pain killer was brought out recently, researchers found that the colors turned the customers off because they made the product look weak and ineffective.

Forget Twitter and Facebook, Google and the Kindle. Television is still the most influential medium around. Indeed, for many of
the poorest regions (地区)of the world, it remains the next big thing——finally becomes globally available. And that is a good thing, because the TV revolution is changing lives for the better. Across the developing world, around 45% of families had a TV in 1995; by 2005 the number had climbed above 60%. That is some way behind the U.S., where are more TVs than people, and where people now easily get access to the Internet. Five million more families in sub-Saharan Africa will get a TV over the next

Usually, when your teacher asks a question, there is only one correct answer. But there is one question that has millions of current answers. That question is ―What?s your name?‖Everyone gives a different answer, but everyone is correct. Have you ever wondered about people?s names? Where do they come from? What do they mean? People?s first names, or given names, are chosen by their parents. Sometimes the name of a grandparent or other member of the family is used. Some parents choose the name of a well-known person. A boy could be named George Washington Smith; a girl could be named Helen Keller Jones. Some people give their children names that mean good things. Clara means ―bright‖ ; Beatrice means ―one who gives happiness‖ ; Donald means ―world ruler‖ ; Leonard means ―as brave as a lion‖ . The earliest last names, or surnames, were taken from place names. A family with the name Brook or Brooks probably lived near brook (小溪); someone who was called Longstreet probably lived on a long, paved road. The Greenwood family lived in or near a leafy forest. Other early surnames came from people?s occupations. The most common occupational name is Smith, which means a person

I grew up in a house where the TV was seldom turned on and with one wall in my bedroom entirely lined with bookshelves, most of my childhood was spent on books I could get hold of. In fact, I grew up thinking of reading as natural as breathing and books unbelievably powerful in shaping perspectives (观点) by creating worlds we could step into, take part in and live in. With this unshakable belief, I, at fourteen, decided to become
great-great-great-grandfather probably built houses and furniture. Sometimes people were known for the color of their hair or skin, or their size, or their special abilities. When there were two men who were named John in the same village, the John with the gray hair probably became John Gray. Or the John was very tall could call himself John Tallman. John Fish was probably an

a writer. Here too, reading became useful. Every writer starts off knowing that he has something to say, but being unable to find the right ways to say it. He has to find his own voice by reading widely and discovering which parts of the writers he agrees or disagrees with, or agrees with so strongly that it reshapes his own world. He cannot write without loving to read, because only through reading other people?s writing can one discover what works, what doesn?t and, in the end, together with lots of practice, what voice he has. Now I am in college, and have come to realize how important it is to read fiction (文学作品). As a law student, my reading is in fact limited to subject matter—the volume (量) of what I have to read for classes every week means there is little time to read anything else. Such reading made it all the clearer to me that I live in a very small part in this great place called life. Reading fiction reminds me that there is life beyond my own. It allows me to travel across the high seas and along the Silk Road, all from the comfort of my own armchair, to experience, though secondhand, exciting experiences that I wouldn't necessarily be able to have in my lifetime. 41. What can be inferred about the author as a child? A. He never watched TV. B. He read what he had to.
C. What do I read? D. When do I read? Passage 5 2010 新课标 D 篇 There were smiling children all the way. Charily they knew at what time the train passed their homes and they made it their business to stand along the railway, wave to complete strangers and cheer them up as they rushed towards Penang. Often whole families stood outside their homes and waved and smiled as if those on the trains were their favorite relatives. This is the simple village people of Malaysia. I was moved. I had always traveled to Malaysia by plane or car, so this was the first time I was on a train. I did not particularly relish the long train journey and had brought along a dozen magazines to read and reread. I looked about the train. There was not one familiar face. I sighed and sat down to read my Economics. It was not long before the train was across the Causeway and in Malaysia. Johore Baru was just another city like Singapore, so I was tired of looking at the crowds of people as they hurried past. As we went beyond the city, I watched the straight rows of rubber trees and miles and miles of green. Then the first village came into sight. Immediately I came alive; I decided to wave hack. From then on my journey became interesting. I threw my magazines into the waste basket and decided to join in Malaysian life. Then everything came alive. The mountains seemed to speak to me. Even the trees

were smiling. I stared at everything as if I was looking at it for the first time. The day passed fast and I even forgot to have my lunch until I felt hungry. I looked at my watch and was surprised that it was 3:00 pm. Soon the train pulled up at Butterworth. I looked at the people all around me. They all looked beautiful. When my uncle arrived with a smile, I threw my arms around him to give him a warm hug (拥抱). I had never done this before. He seemed surprised and then his weather-beaten face warmed up with a huge smile. We walked arm in arm to his car. I looked forward to the return journey. 66.

of the aircraft happens to block your way. When you travel by car or train a unclear image of the countryside constantly dirties the windows. Car drivers, in particular, are forever forces to go on and on: they never want to stop. Is it the lure of the great motorways, or what? And as for sea travel, it hardly deserves mention. It is perfectly summed up in the words of the old song: ―I joined the navy to see the world, and what did I see? I saw the sea. ‖ The

looking forward to arriving at some other place. But actual arrival, when it is reached, is meaningless. You want to move on again. By traveling like this, you stop all experience; the present is no longer a reality: you might just as well be dead. The traveler on foot, on the other hand, lives constantly in the present. For him, traveling and arriving are one and the same thing: he arrives somewhere with every step he makes. He experiences the present moment with his eyes, his ears and the whole of his body. At the end of his journey, he feels a delicious physical tiredness. He knows that sound. Pleasant sleep will be his: the reward of all true travellers. 1. Anthropologists label nowadays ―Legless Man‖ because _____. A. people forget how to use his legs B. people prefer cars, buses and trains C. lifts prevent people from walking D. there are a lot of transportation devices 2. What does the underlined sentence ―When you travel at high speeds‖ mean? A. people?s focus on the future B. a pleasure C. satisfying drivers? great thrill
The past ages of man have all been carefully labeled (贴标签； 被 称 为 ) by anthropologists ( 人 类 学 家 ). Descriptions like ―Palaeolithic Man‖ , ―Neolithic Man‖ , etc., neatly sum up whole periods. When the time comes for anthropologists to turn their attention to the twentieth century, they will surely choose the label ―Legless Man‖ . Histories of the time will go something like this: ―In the twentieth century, people forgot how to use their legs. Men and women moved about in cars, buses and trains from a very early age. There were lifts in all large buildings to prevent people from walking. This situation was forced upon earth dwellers (居住 者) of that time because of miles each day. But the surprising thing is that they didn?t use their legs even when they went on holiday. They built cable railways, ski-lifts and roads to the top of every huge mountain. All the beauty spots on earth were destroyed by the presence of large car parks.‖ The future history books might also record that we were deprived (剥夺) of the use of our eyes. In our hurry to get from one place to another, we failed to see anything on the way. Air travel gives you a bird?s-eye view of the world – or even less if the wing

Passage 2 I WAS BORN and raised in the shadow of the Capitol, in Washington, D.C., as were my parents and my mother?s parents. Our row house was on a tree-lined street just blocks from the building that was the heart of the federal legislative branch. When I was a child, in the 1940s, friends and I would pack a lunch or ride a streetcar to the Capitol. If we roller-skated, we hid the skates in the bushes in the park across the street before entering the building. I knew every corner of the Capitol. We?d play hide-and-seek and pretend we saw ghosts in the halls and stairways. I don?t know how we got away with it.I remember the beautiful ladies? rooms, with their marble floors and sinks. I pretended that I was a fine lady in them. In those days, you could walk around the Capitol
Once war was declared, some things changed in the nation?s capital. Because of concerns that Washington might be attacked, as London had been, everyone prepared. Kids at my elementary school wore dog tags, and each of us was fingerprinted. My father, a pipe worker, became a civil defense warden(民防 队员). During an air raid, his job was to turn off any leaking gas. Since he always had a cigarette in his mouth, maybe that was not a good choice, but he had a gas mask and flashlight hanging in the rafters of our basement…the mask looked like a monster in the ceiling. My 15-year-old brother was a junior civil defense warden. During air- raid drills, he knocked on doors and asked people to put out their lights. I remember huge searchlights that crisscrossed the skies during the drills, looking for enemy planes. 1. From the passage, we can understand that _______. A. The writer attended the meeting in House of Representative B. The writer?s family lived in Washington D.C. for generati ons C. American citizen, except children, could never enter the Capitol D.

dome( 圆顶屋 ), which was a little scary for me. I loved the wonderful paintings and statues and the subway rides to the Senate Office Building. It was like an amusement ride. I even used to sit in the gallery of the U.S. House of Representatives — until I became bored with all the talk and went on another adventure. Whenever I ran up the steps to the huge bronze doors of the Rotunda, I would look back to the world below like a hero. As soon as the doors were opened, the sense of history surrounded me, and I knew it was someplace special. Those were lucky days, when an American citizen could wander in the Capitol and be a part of history.

state from too much comfort,‖he once wrote. On June 9th, 1870, aged 58, Dickens died, leaving one unfinished work．The words on his tombstone read: ―He was a sympathizer( 同 情 者 ) to the poor, the suffering and the oppressed(受压迫者), and by his death, one of England?s greatest writers is lost to the world.‖ 1. The book that called public attention to Dickens was ______． A. The Pickwick Papers C. A Tale of Two Cities B. Oliver Twist D. David Copperfield
Charles Dickens? (1812-1870) family could hardly make ends meet(入不敷出). They could only afford to send one of their six children to school. Dickens was not that child. His parents chose to send a daughter, who had a talent for music, to an academy. Then at the age of 12, Dickens? life took another turn for the worse. His father, a clerk, was placed in prison for unpaid debts. And, being the oldest male left at home, Dickens took up work at a factory. His horrible experience there became the fuel for his future writing. His father was freed three months later and inherited (继承) a small amount of money. Dickens was then sent to school. From 1836 to 1837, he wrote a monthly series of stories. Thus the Pickwick Papers (《匹克威克外传》), came into being, which brought fame to the 23-year-old man. Throughout his career, Dickens covers various situations in his novels. He wrote about the miserable lives of the poor in Oliver Twist （ 《雾都孤儿》 ） , the French Revolution in A Tale of Two Cities, and social reform in Hard Times （ 《艰难时世》 ）. He also wrote David Copperfield （ 《大卫· 科波菲尔》 ）, a book thought to be based on his own life. ―I do not write bitterly or angrily: for I know all these things have worked together to make me what I am," he once said. His difficult childhood did indeed shape the person he became, as well as his writing career. There are shades of young Dickens in many of his most beloved characters, including David Copperfield and Oliver Twist. Like the author, all these characters come from poor beginnings and are able to rise above their setbacks and achieve success. ―Minds, like bodies, will often fall into an ill-conditioned

People who drink alcohol earn more at their jobs than non-drinkers, according to a US study that highlighted ―social capital(社交资本)‖ gained from drinking. The study concluded that drinkers earn 10–14 percent more than teetotalers, and that men who drink socially bring home an additional seven percent in pay. social capital,‖ said Edward ―Social drinking builds Stringham, an economics
professor, ―Social drinkers are outgoing, building relationships, and keeping in contacts, which results in bigger paychecks.‖ The researchers said the most likely explanation is that drinkers have a wider range of social contacts that help provide better job and business opportunities. ―Drinkers may be able to socialize more with clients and co-workers, giving drinkers an advantage in important relationships.

Drinking may also provide individuals with opportunities to learn people, business, and social skills.‖ They also said these conclusions provide arguments against policies aimed at controlling alcohol use in university and public places. ―Not only do anti-alcohol policies reduce drinkers? fun, but they may also decrease earnings,‖ the study said, ―One of the consequences of alcohol restrictions is that they push drinking into private behavior. By preventing people from drinking in public, anti-alcohol policies ignores one of the most important aspects of drinking: increased social capital.‖ The researchers found some differences in the economic effects of drinking among men and women. They concluded that men who drink earn 10 percent more than non-drinkers and women drinkers earn 14 percent more than non-drinkers. However, unlike men, who get a 7 percent income increase from drinking in bars, women drinkers who visit bars frequently do not show higher earnings than those who do not visit bars. 1. The underlined word in Paragraph 2 refers to ____ A. women drinkers C. non-drinkers B. co-workers D. men-drinkers
D. Drinkers may be provided more opportunities. Passage 5 Writing being largely a self-taught occupation, texts on how to get about it — though great in number— seldom are of much use. You try, and fail. Then try again. Until at last, if you have some gift for it, the failures become less frequent, or at any rate less apparently. It is this ability to cover up one?s defects that is finally regarded as accomplishment or achievement. Along the way there are the discouragements of unkind criticism, outright rejection, troublesome insecurity and irregular inability to meet debts. It is uncommon, therefore, to come across a book containing advice of much practical value for anyone toying (漫不经心地考 虑) with the dangerous idea of staring on a writing life. A friend recently lent me such a book, however — one I wish I?d had the luck to read years ago, and which I would recommend to any young person devoted to making a career of words. It is the autobiography (自传) of the English novelist Anthony Trollope, first published in 1883, the year after his death. Needing some means to support himself, Trollope at age 19 worked as a junior clerk in the British postal service. He was at his

desk at 5:30 each morning to write for three hours. And he remained in the mail service 33 years, long after reputation and prosperity had come to him. Now, what of his advice in his works? 1. For safety?s sake, arm yourself with some other skills, some other line of work to fall back on (求助). That way, failure at writing, though the disappointment may appear, will not mean ruin. 2. Do not depend too much on inspiration. Writing is a craft, which Trollope compared to the craft of shoemaking. The shoemaker who has just turned out one pair of his work sets to work immediately on the next pair. 3. Have a story to tell, but, more important than that, people with characters who will speak and move as living creatures in the reader?s mind. Without memorable
