提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
这句话就是Hatchepsut chose Senenmut as her architect, 只不过是宾语后置了啊.

恍然大悟,看到源源的帖后,就跟在后面reply了,没有再仔细参照前面的听稿。现在一看,是当时我改错了,还害得源源也跟着错了。所以应该是:

Hatchepsut chose as her architect, a man called Senenmut


Perfect! 这下这句话没有问题了。看来俺还是要多来这里向大家学习。

那么另外你对那句“He would have been dreamed on...”有没有什么看法?

on 源源

Hatchepsut set out to finish what her husband Thutmose II had started--a splendid mortuary temple. Under her control, it would take 15 years to become the greatest architectural achievement of her dynasty. Hatchepsut chose as her architect, a man called Senenmut. From lowly status, Senenmut had risen up the ranks to become Hatchepsut's most trusted companion.

"He was chief of her works. He would have been dreamed on how to choose a site and then to plan the work and then to manage the work as it goes along."

As the temple was built up, so its visionary design was revealed with multi-faced columns never seen before.

"There is no other temple in Egypt that looks like this. It's unique."

Senenmut copied the ramp design from an adjacent temple complex; but he added other features. On the colonnades, he paid statues to the god Osiris in front of square columns. And at the back of the temple was a unique structure built to withstand the weight of the cliff above it.

"This is the innermost sanctuary and it’s constructed in a rather extraordinary way. What they have done is just / to make a cobbled vault as we call it; and this is putting one stone on top of another stone and moving closer and closer and closer to the ceiling; and then all those little corners are shaved off on either side. So, what you are looking at appears to be a barreled vault."

Hatchepsut illustrated the highlights of her reign on the walls of her temple, including the very first depiction of an expedition she organized in the 9th year of her rule.

"This is the only record that we have over African village 2,500 years ago."

Hatchepsut sent five ships to the Land of Punt, thought to be near present-day Somalia. The purpose of the trip was to bring back the highly prized incense and perfumes to offer the god Amen of the temple.

"They brought back precious woods like ebony, ivory, gold, skins and everything else that they thought would be a delight for the god Amen. Some say also that the terraces of this particular temple were used as a place to plant these exotic trees."

Throughout the 15 years of construction, Hatchepsut worked closely with her architect Senenmut who became almost like family.

个人倾向于: He was chief of headworks. He would have been drained on how to choose a site and then to plan the work and then to manage the work as it goes along. 他是这项智慧工程的负责人, 为如何选址和工程的安排和进展时的管理耗尽了精力.

HOMEWORK

Hatshepsut set out to finish what her husband Thutmose II had started, a splendid mortuary temple. Under her control, it would take 15 years to become the greatest architectural achievement of her dynasty. Hatshepsut chose as her architect a man called Senenmut. From lowly status, Senenmut had risen up the ranks to become Hatshepsut’s most trusted companion.

“He was chief of head works. He would have been drained on how to choose a site and then to plan the work, and then to manage the world as it goes along.”

As the temple was built up, so its visionary design was revealed with multi-faced columns never seen before.

“There is no other temple in Egypt that looks like this. It’s unique.”

Senenmut copied the ramp design from an adjacent temple complex, but he added other features. On the colonnades, he paid the statues to the God Osiris in front of square columns. And at the back of the temple, was a unique structure built to withstand the weight of the cliff above it.

“This is the most innermost sanctuary and it’s constructed in a rather extraordinary way. What they have done is just to make a cobbled vault as we call it, and this is putting one stone on top of another stone, and moving closer and closer and closer to the ceiling. And then all those little corners are shaved off on either side. So what you are looking at appears to be a barreled vault.”

Hatshepsut illustrated the highlight of her reign on the walls of her temple, including the very first depiction of an expedition she organized in the 9th year of her rule.
