比较状语从句的省略

English football clubs are even more reliant on gate revenues than Major League Baseball (MLB). And their fans are even more zealous and less forgiving than the Red Sox Nation—let alone the usual peripatetic American sports fan.

还原的话:than those of the Red Sox Nation are或者than the Red Sox Nation ones are,可以吗?

谢谢各位老师!

是。而且以省略those of为佳。只有当从属关系对读者/听者产生干扰时(干扰小,就是小干扰,干扰大,就是我们说的歧义),才不省略。

1. Dog brains produce more heat than those of humans.

2. Dog brains produce more heat than humans.

从逻辑上讲,读者/听者不会把than结构认为是produce humans,但是heat与humans这样的位置还是会读者思维产生干扰。因此我们用第1句,而视第2句为错误用法。
