可以接 that 子句當受詞的動詞

下面所列的動詞都可以接 that 子句當受詞 (當然,下列只是這類動詞中的一小部份而已,但它們都是我們常用的動詞):

accept, admit, announce, answer, ask, assume. authorize, believe, claim, command, complain, consent, consider, contest, declare, decide, decree, demand, demonstrate, determine, deny, desire, dictate, direct, discover, discuss, doubt, examine, expect, feel, find (out), forget, grant, guarantee, hope, ignore, imply, indicate, insist, know, move, notice, observe, order, overlook, permit, propose, prove, recommend, regret, remark, report, request, require, say, see, show, specify, suggest, suppose, think, understand, urge, wonder 等等。例如:

We have to admit that he’s a highly competent man. (我們必須承認他是個非常能幹的人)
They decided that John must stay there. (他們決定約翰必須留在那裡)
I regret that you see it like that. (我很遺憾你這樣看待這件事)

然而,有些動詞卻不可以接 that 子句當受詞,如 contribute, describe, make, prevent, speak, summarize 等等。所以下句是錯誤的:

He spoke to his girlfriend that he had missed her very much. (他對他的女友說,他非常想念她)

  1. Social scientists believe that ______ from sounds such as grunts and barks made by early ancestors of human beings.
    A) the very slow development of language
    B) language developed very slowly
    C) language, which was very slow to develop
    D) language, very slowly developing

    that 後面的受詞子句有一個動詞made , 所以空格內的子句不應該有動詞,所以我挑了答案A 。 結果錯了 答案是B
    這樣子一來這個句子裡面就有三個動詞 believe, developed, made, . 連接詞 that 可以連三個動詞嗎?
    一般的受詞子句 ex: They believe that she is good. 二個動詞一個連接詞that. 有一點要瘋了快來救救偶 到底是為什麼

    • … grunts and barks made by early ancestors of human beings 中的 made 為 which were made 的省略,所以 made 是修飾 grunts and barks 的過去分詞 (當形容詞用),不是一般動詞。
