研英翻译演练(19)

正文:

Women who feel abandoned and deprived when their husbands won't listen to or report daily news may be happy to discover their husbands trying to adapt once they understand the place of small talk in women's relationship.

要点:

本句的主句是Women may be happy to discover their husbands trying to adapt。who引导的是非限定性定语从句,修饰women。when引导的是时间状语从句。once引导的也是状语从句,修饰trying。trying to adapt是现在分词短语,作宾补。

参考译文:

那些因丈夫不倾听或谈论每天发生的事情而感到被遗弃、感到失去生活乐趣的女性会高兴的发现,她们的丈夫一旦知道了不起眼的聊天在与女性关系中的地位之后,会努力地改变自己以适应妻子的需要!
