    APENAS El adverbio apenas tiene dos traducciones principales en inglés: hardly y scarcely, este último usado en lenguaje más formal. ► Estos adverbios se colocan normalmente detrás de los verbos auxiliares y modales y delante de los demás verbos: Apenas podía hablar después del accidente He could hardly o scarcely speak after the accident Apenas nos conocemos We hardly o scarcely know each other ► Sin embargo, en oraciones temporales, podemos colocar hardly y scarcely al principio de la oración si queremos reforzar la inmediatez de algo, o como recurso estilístico en cuentos y relatos. En este caso los adverbios van siempre seguidos de un verbo auxiliar, con lo que se invierte el orden normal del sujeto y del verbo en inglés, quedando la estructura hardly/ scarcely + had + ((sujeto)) + ((participio)) + when ...: Apenas me había acostado cuando oí un ruido extraño Hardly o Scarcely had I gone to bed when I heard a strange noise En este sentido se suele utilizar también no sooner + had + ((sujeto)) + ((participio)) + than...: Apenas me había acostado cuando oí un ruido extraño No sooner had I gone to bed than I heard a strange noise Para otros usos y ejemplos ver la entrada

    Ex: Enthusiasm in a searcher, of course, all are agreed on: 'he must delight in the chase for its own sake'.

    Ex: With online display, the alphabetical arrangement can become less significant, since all look-ups can be achieved with the computer, and there is less need for the scanning of alphabetical lists.
    Ex: Even a user who starts a search with a specific subject in mind, may be seeking a specific subject which does not quite match requirements.
    Ex: The search request is displayed on the screen and assigned a number in the extreme left column.
    Ex: Indexing and searching, then, are integral one to another, and so a few comments on searching are in order here = Por lo tanto, la indización y la búsqueda son complementarios y así pues es pertinente hacer algunos comentarios aquí sobre la búsqueda.
    Ex: If a search, manual or on-line, appears likely to last more than a few minutes, and should the librarian decide not to encourage the enquirer to join in the hunt, good practice requires that the visitor be given something to be going on with and invited to sit down.
    Ex: It was not until the 16th century that falconry and stag hunting gained the significance that it retained until 1789.
    Ex: 'Searching' or even 'ordering' would be better, so long as we didn't imply by either of them an 'irritable reaching after fact and reason'.
    Ex: 'Systematic review' is the process whereby similar studies, identified from a comprehensive trawl of numerous databases, are summarized in digestible form.
    Ex: The project consortium will complete a feasibility study into the automatic indexing of free text and the multilingual querying of text databases = El consorcio creado realizar el proyecto llevará a cabo un estudio de viabilidad sobre la indización automática de texto libre y la consulta en varios idiomas de bases de datos de texto.
