Re: "accessible"

Re: "Once accessible by a good road, the temple would become a tourist destination.."

"Once accessible by a good road" is an adjectice phrase qualifying the noun "temple". The same sentence can be written like this:-

"The temple, once accessible by a good road, would become a tourist destination."

The sentence can also be rephrased as follows:-

"Once the temple is ACCESSIBLE by a good road, it would become a tourist destination." In this sentence, the adj. "accessible" qualifies the noun "temple".

Re:

如果能理解这句话的意思就容易多了-----一旦能够靠近一条好的公路,这座庙宇将成为旅游者的目的地。(这里一旦修建一条高等级公路,那这庙宇将成为一个旅游景点)accessible原意是可到达的,这里可译成能够,by靠近,如译成穿过那就不通顺了
