rather than 详解

作连词

rather than用作连词,连接两个平行结构。

既可以表示主观愿望上的决择,与其...宁可...

也可以表示客观程度上的差异,与其说是...不如说是...

连接代词
  • I, rather than you, should do the work. 该做这工作的是我,而不是你。
连接名词
  • John ought to go rather than Jean. 约翰比琴更应该去。
  • I think I'll have a cold drink rather than coffee. 我想我该要一杯冷饮,而不要咖啡。
  • I think you, rather than Mary, is to be punished. 我认为该受惩罚的是你,而不是玛丽。
更多
  • Rather than fish, we have fried eggs and meat for lunch. 今天午餐吃煎蛋和肉,而没有鱼。

试比较: We sometimes eat rice instead of potatoes. 有时候我们不吃土豆,而吃米饭。

连接形容词
  • These shoes are comfortable rather than good-looking. 这鞋不好看可是舒服。
  • The color seems green rather than blue. 这颜色看上去是绿的,而不是蓝的。
连接介词短语
  • You are doing this for yourself rather than for your friend. 你不是为你朋友,而是为你自己做这种事。
  • I'd prefer to go in August rather than in July. 我愿 8 月去不愿 7 月去。
连接动名词
  • I always prefer starting early, rather than leaving everything to the last minute. 我总是愿意早开始而不愿意把所有事情都留到最后才做。
  • He was engaged in writing a letter rather than reading the newspaper. 他那时是在写信而不是看报纸。
连接过去分词
  • She insisted on having the room papered rather than painted. 她坚持要用纸裱糊房间,而不是把房间粉刷一下。
连接不定式

一般省略to

  • I decided to write rather than telephone. 我决定写信而不是打电话。
  • They prefer to die fighting rather than live in enslavement. 他们宁可战死,也不肯活着受奴役。
  • I prefer to work rather than remain idle. 我宁愿工作而不愿闲着。
连接谓语动词

rather than后接动词原形表示主观抉择,接一个动词的过去式则表示客观差异。

  • He told a lie rather than get his friend into trouble. 他宁愿说谎也不愿连累朋友。
  • Shall we go for a walk rather than watch television? 咱们不看电视,出去散步,好不好?
  • He ran rather than walked. 他跑步而不是步行。
更多
  • Rather than go there by air, I'd take the slowest train. 我宁愿乘最慢的火车,也不愿乘飞机去那儿。
连接从句
  • It was what he meant rather than what he said. 那是指他话中的意思,而不是他所说的话。
  • It was what he had eaten rather than what he had drunk that made him ill. 使他得病的不是他喝的东西,而是他吃的东西。
作介词

as well asinstead of一样,rather than后面跟一个和主句中的动词形式并不匹配的ing分词分句时,它是介词,而不是准并列连词。

  • Their actions precipitated the war rather than averting it. 他们的行为促使战争爆发而不是避免战争。
  • Rather than a new car, he bought a color television. 他买了一台彩电,而不是一辆新车。
  • Let's finish the job today, rather than leaving it till tomorrow. 让咱们今天干完工作,而不是留到明天。
与 would 搭配

rather than可以和would联用,如would rather...than...would...rather than...

这时要注意前后对称,即必须用相同的语法成份。如:

  • I'd rather have the red one than(have) the green one. 我宁愿要红的,不愿要绿的。
  • I'd take the slowest train rather than go there by air. 我宁可乘坐最慢的火车也不愿坐飞机去那儿。
  • He would rather walk than drive. 他宁愿步行不愿开车。
更多
  • I'd prefer to go in August rather than in July. 我愿八月去,不愿七月去。
  • I'd call her hair chestnut rather than brown. 我宁愿说她的头发是栗色,而不是棕色。
注意

I'd rather+ 动词原形,通常意为我宁愿...,相当于I'd prefer to...,具有选择意义,即宁愿做...不愿做

但是,当后接动词like, enjoy, appreciate时,rather是一个程度副词,象quitefairly一样无选择意义。

所以I'd rather like不是我宁愿喜欢,而是我相当(很)喜欢。试比较下列句子:

  • I'd rather like a cup of coffee. 我很想来杯咖啡。
  • We would rather appreciate your help. 我们非常感谢你的帮助。
  • Which would you rather have, tea or coffee? 你更愿意喝什么,茶还是咖啡?
更多
  • He would rather enjoy seeing a film on Sundays. 他很喜欢在星期天看场电影。

  • Rather than take it all the way, they decided to take the train from west to east across Canada.
  • rather than disappoint the children, he did two quick tricks before he left
