Reading is thought to be a kind of conversation between the reader and the text. The reader puts questions, as it were, to the text and gets answers. In the light of these he puts __1__ questions, and so on. For most of the time this "conversation" goes on below the level of consciousness. At times, however, we become __2__ of it. This is usually when we are running into difficulties, when mismatch is occurring between __3__ and meaning. When successful matching is being experienced, our question of the text continues at the unconscious level. Different people __4__ with the text differently. Some stay very close to the words on the page, others take off imaginatively from the words, interpreting, criticizing, analyzing and examining. The former represents a kind of comprehension which is __5__ in the text. The latter represents __6__ levels of comprehension. The balance between these is important, especially for advanced readers. There is another conversation which from our point of view is __7__ important, and that is to do not with what is read but with how it is read. We call this a "process" conversation as __8__ to a "content" conversation. It is concerned not with meaning but with the __9__ we employ in reading. If we are an advanced reader our ability to hold a process conversation with a text is usually pretty well __10__. Not so our ability to hold a content conversation. A)opposed B)converse C)equally D)written E)developed F)strategies G)compared H)awake I)higher J)expectations K)deal L)absolutely M)aware N)better O)further Answers:
  1. 选 O 很明显此处应填形容词.可选项有 higher 和 further ,原文为"根据答案反复 提出..问题",但 higher 一般强调的是层次上的高低,因此不能用来修饰 question ,故 . 只有 further "更进一步的"符合题意.
  2. 选 M 此处应填形容词且能与 of 构成固定搭配.可选项有 awake 和 aware ,由前 一句中 below the level of consciousness (即 unconsciousness )和此句中 however 转折可 以推出,此处应填与 consciousness 意思相近的形容词,故排除 awake "警觉的",而选 aware .
  3. 选 J 由空格后的 and meaning 可知,此处应填名词,与 meaning 构成并列结构. 原文为"我们会意识到沟通的存在,通常是在我们遇到难题或 …… 与文章意思不符的时 候",故只有 expectations "所猜测的意思"符合题意.
  4. 选 B 很明显此处应填动词且能与 with 搭配.可选项有 converse 和 deal ,从句意 来理解,不同的人 …… 文章不同,但由于文章主要说明的是读者与文章之间的沟通方式, 故排除 deal "处理"而选 converse "谈话.
  5. 选 D 因关系代词 which 指代的是 comprehension , 可知此处应填动词的被动形式. 但由 The former 和 the words on he page 可推出前一种人是从文中的字词去理解文章, 而字 词只能是被写在文中,因此只有 written 符合题意.
  6. 选 I 此处应填形容词. The former 和 The latter 可知, 由 此处是将两种人的对话方 式进行比较,故可选项有 higher 和 better ,但由前面提到的后一种人对文章所做的 interpreting,criticizing,analyzing and examining 可知,这些都属于对文章更高层次的理解, 因此选 higher .
  7. 选 C 显然此处应填副词.可选项有 equally 和 absolutely ,但由 another 可推出,
文 章 是 在 分 别 说 明 两 种对 话 方 式 , 而 没 有 突 出哪 个 更 重 要 , 故 排 除 absolutely 而 选 equally .
  8. 选 A 此处是将" process " conversation 与" content " conversation 形成对比,故可选 项有 opposed 和 compared ,但 as opposed to 是固定搭配,因此排除 compared .
  9. 选 F 从句子结构来看, 此处缺的是 employ 的宾语, 再从选项中看, 能与 employ 形 成动宾搭配且符合题意的只有 strategies ,故选 strategies .
  10. 选 E 此处应填动词的被动形式. 选项中有 developed "提高, 加强"和 compared "比 较"能与 ability 构成动宾搭配,但从句意理解,通常高级读者与文章进行"程序对话"的能 力 …… ,故只有 developed 符合题意.
