1、每日一句长难句

A lateral move that hurt my pride and blocked my professional progress prompted me to abandon my relatively high profile career although, in the manner of a disgraced government minister, I covered my exit by claiming “I wanted to spend more time with my family”.

2、【分析】

本句中a lateral move是主语,that hurt my pride and blocked my professional progress是a lateral move的定语从句,promoted sb. to abandon..是谓语结构,although是状语从句连接词,I covered my exit是从句主干,by引导状语,引号里的是claim的宾语,其中逗号之间的in the manner of a disgraced government minister是插入语。

3、【词汇】

lateral adj.平行的

block v.阻碍

prompt sb. to do 促使某人做某事

profile 轮廓 -->high profile固定搭配“高调的”,反义词low profile

disgrace 丢脸,耻辱

cover 掩盖

4、【译文】

一次平级的人事调动伤了我的自尊心,并阻断了我的事业发展,这促使我放弃自己相对高调的职业,当然,就像出丑的政府部长那样,我借口“我想有更多的时间与家人呆在一起”来掩饰我的离开。

5、【明日长难句】

I have discovered, as perhaps Kelsey will after her much publicized resignation from the editorship of She after a buildup of stress, that abandoning the doctrine of “juggling your life”, and making the alternative move into “downshifting” brings with it far greater rewards than financial success and social status.
