            Big Bigger Biggest 2 超大建筑狂想曲
             
            The bigger they are, the harder they fall. However, this is not the case with some of the biggest structures in the world today. This month, National Geographic Channel takes you into the world of giant airplanes and architectural domes. In "Big Bigger Biggest 2: Aircraft," NGC goes over the development of six revolutionary airplanes. Then, NGC explains how they all influenced the Antonov 124, the world's largest cargo plane.

            The Antonov 124 is bigger than big. It is as tall as a seven-story building, and its wingspan is long enough to park eight buses end to end with room to spare. What's more, it has enough cargo space for 50 family-sized cars, which is nothing in comparison to what it has already carried. These planes have transported tanks, trains, other aircrafts, and even an elephant from Moscow to Taiwan. However, the Antonov 124 could not have done this without the major technological developments that have allowed engineers to build bigger and better cargo planes. So book a flight with NGC's "Big Bigger Biggest 2: Aircraft" and fly with the big boys.

            物品愈大,跌得愈重。但對于現今世界里一些最大的建筑物來說,情形卻并非如此。本月份,國家地理頻道將帶您進入巨大飛機和圓頂建筑的世界里。在《超大建筑狂想曲2:巨無霸運輸機》的節目中,國家地理頻道將一探六架革命性飛機的發展史。接著國家地理頻道將解釋這些飛機如何影響了世上最大貨機—— Antonov 124的建造。

            用大來形容Antonov 124還略顯不足。它和一棟七層樓的建筑等高,其翼幅的寬度停入八輛頭尾相接的巴士都還綽綽有余。此外,它有足夠的貨運空間來容納五十臺家庭房車,但這跟它所載運過的貨物相比之下根本就不算什么。這種貨機曾運送過坦克車、火車和其它飛機,甚至還從莫斯科將大象運載來臺灣。然而要是沒有重大的科技發展使工程師得以建造出更大更優的貨機,Antonov 124也不會有現在這樣的成就。所以趕快訂好機位,隨著國家地理頻道的《超大建筑狂想曲2:巨無霸運輸機》一同和這些空中悍將遨游天際吧。

            SENTENCE PATTERN  

            The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
            (物品愈大,跌得愈重。)
            此句在本文中取其字面意思,但實為一則諺語,表示『爬得越高,摔得越重』,其句型如下:
            The + 比較級形容詞∕副詞..., the + 比較級形容詞∕
            副詞...  愈……,就愈……
            注意:
            1. 在此句構中,第一個 the 視為副詞連接詞,引導副詞子句,同時亦兼作副詞,修飾其后的比較級形容詞或副詞;第二個 the 則視為副詞,修飾其后的比較級形容詞或副詞。若句中無形容詞或副詞時,則在句首依句意加上"the more"或"the less"即可。
            The louder the music is, the more excited the crowd gets.
            (音樂愈大聲,群眾們愈興奮。)
            2. 若句中主詞為一般名詞,而非代名詞或專有名詞,且其后動詞為 be 動詞時,則此 be 動詞可予以省略。故上句亦可寫為:
            The louder the music, the more excited the crowd gets.
