三、原因状语从句 引导连词有because，as, since。 He didn′t see the film because he had seen it. 他没有看那部电影，因为他已经看过了。 They couldn’t get on the train，for it was too crowed. 比较：because, since, as和for 1) because语势最强，用来说明人所不知的原因，回答why提出的问题。当原因是显而易见的或已为人们所知，就用as或 since。 I didn’t go, because I was afraid. Since /As the weather is so bad, we have to delay our journey. 2) 由because引导的从句如果放在句末，且前面有逗 号，则可以用for来代替。但如果不是说明直接原因，而是多种情况加以推断，就只能用for。 He is absent today, because / for he is ill. He must be ill, for he is absent today. 注意：because不能和so 连用。

(2)They started early so that they caught the early bus. 注意点： 在例句(1)中,是引导目的状语;在例句(2)中，是引导结果状语。一般来讲，从句中含有情态动词的，为目的状语。无情态动词的，为结果状语。
五、结果状语从句 引导连词有that，so…that…，such….that The box is so heavy that I can’t lift it. 这个盒子如此沉，以致我无法抬起来。 such+名词性词组+that… So+形容词/副词+that…——如此……以致…… 例如：(1)She is such a good teacher that we all love her. (2)It was such a hot day that they didn’t go out for a walk as usual. 注意点： 1.such+a+形容词+名词+that…，可以改写成：so+形容词+a+名词+that…，例句(1)可以改写成：She is so good a teacher that we all love her. 2.在such+形容词+名词复数或不可数名词+that…结构中，形容词如果是many/few或much/little时，用so不用such，即：so+many/few+可数名词复数+that…，so+much/little+不可数名词+that… (1)There are so many people in the room that I can’t get in.
