根据此前CB给出的新版SAT样题以及官方说明,SAT考题将不再包括生涩难懂的单词,转而将重点将转移至Collegeboard所说的“高实用性”词汇,这些词会出现在许多不同语境、不同学科中——往往因此有不同的含义,而考试就将把它们放在不同的语境内。那么,词汇改革到底变成什么样了?考生又该如何备考呢?
 
下面我们就来看一看官方给出的例题:

The coming decades will likely see more intense clustering of jobs, innovation, and productivity in a smaller number of bigger cities and city-regions. Some regions could end up bloated beyond the capacity of their infrastructure, while others struggle, their promise stymied by inadequate human or other resources.

As used in line 55, “intense” most nearly means

emotional.

concentrated.

brilliant.

determined.

这是一道社科语境下的问题。学生可能经常用“intense”来描述特性或者情绪,这一句的语境要求学生知道“intense”还可以用来表示“全神贯注的”。所以这题的答案是B。

官方解析:

the context makes clear that the clustering of jobs, innovation, and productivity is expected to be denser, or more concentrated in a smaller number of bigger cities and city- regions, over the coming decades. The best answer can be determined from context clues, and none of the other answer choices makes sense in context although each is a legitimate synonym of the tested word; the tested word is also a high-utility word likely to appear in many types of reading. In these ways, the question draws students back to the text rather than rewarding only isolated vocabulary knowledge.

新SAT会考察同一个单词在不同段落中甚至同一个段落中的不同词义。比如,想一想为什么林肯在葛底斯堡演讲中用到那么多“dedicate”这个词。

林肯葛底斯堡演讲(节选)

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicatedto the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.

It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

一共用了6个dedicated,大家能说出每一个的意思吗?
