01每日一句长难句
Best known as a destination for honeymooners in search of perfect white beaches and swaying palms, the Seychelles islands rarely make any sort of headlines. Few tourists would even have noticed the presidential election on April 30th, in which James Michel, leader of the Seychelles People’s Progressive Front, was returned with 54% of the ballot.


02 【句型分析】

句首Best known as…是分词做状语状语,主语是the Seychelles islands,被动语态被省略了are。后一分句中,使用否定代词few体现否定,译为“很少”,其中包含了in which引导的定语从句in which James Michel,leader of do the Seychelles People’s Progressive Front, was returned with 54% of the ballot修饰先行词election。leader of the Seychelles People’s Progressive Front为同位语,补充说明James Michel此人的身份。


03【词汇】
destination 目的地

in search of 寻找

swaying 摇曳的

make any sort of headlines 成为头条

ballot 投票
