1、概述 由两个或两个以上的简单句并列连接起来的句子称为 并列句(compound sentence)。并列句中的各个简 单句彼此独立，互不依从，但它们表达的意思之间有 一定的关系。并列句中的各个简单句通常用并列连词 连接起来。并列连词之前可用逗号，也可不用逗号 （但however、therefore、otherwise等并列连词前 后都常有逗号）。常见的并列句
2、并列连词根据不同含义，分为如下几类： （1）表示连接，常用的有and、not only...but also、neither...nor等。 Right now it's the summer vacation and I’m helping my dad on the farm. Not only is he our teacher, but also he is our friend. Neither did the naughty boy go home, nor did his parents come to search for him. Neither has she changed her mind, nor will she do so. Both she and I are good at English.
He not only plays the piano but also the violin. 注意 ：上述句子是不规范的用法，因为not only plays the piano 与 but also the violin 在语法结构上不对称。 必须说成： He plays not only the piano but also the violin. (连接两个宾语) 又如： ? Not only Mr Lin but also his son joined the Party two years ago. (连接两个主语) ? I not only play tennis but also practise shooting. (连接两个谓语动词) ? They speak English not only in class but also in the dormitory. (连接两个地点状语)
