  2. Automobiles have, since their invention, revolutionized transportation, changing forever the way people travel, and do business. On the other hand, they have brought hazards, especially highway fatalities. However, today the application of computer technology and electronic sensors in designing and manufacturing cars makes it possible to eliminate most of traffic accidents. For example, electronic sensors mounted in your car can detect alcohol vapor in the air and refuse to start up the engine. They can also monitor road conditions by receiving radio signals sent out from orbiting satellites and greatly reduce your chances of getting stuck in traffic jams.

   如何学英语 传统的英语拼读规则使用字母和字母组合来描述单词的拼写形式。如果我们把字母和字母组合统称为字组,把字组确定为拼写的基本单位,这不仅会使我们 的教学语言更简洁,还可以更清晰地凸现拼写和读音之间的对应关系。 这是因为,字母是英语单词的最小拼写单位,音素是语言中最小的发音单位。字母分为元音字母和辅音字母两种。英语单词中的字母和单词读音中的各个音素并不都存在着对应关系。有时一个字母对应一个音素,有时两个或三个字母对应一个音素。而字组指的是一个或几个字母在一起,发一个音素,是单词读音音 ...
