“It is + 被强调部分 + thatwho + 句子其他部分”是使用最广的强调句型。除了谓语动词不能强调外，句子中其它成分，如主语、状语、宾语或宾语补足语都可以用该句型中加以强调。
被强调的主语是人时，可用It iswas ... thatwho ...，但如果被强调的部分既包括人又包括物，只能用that。

-- It was he thatwho bought a camera yesterday. 是他昨天买了一架照相机。

英语中的状语种类很多,一般都可以用It iswas ... that ...来强调。

-- It was in his teens that he left his hometown for Taiwan. 他是在十几岁时离开家乡去台湾的。

-- It was after the guest had gone away that he let out the secret. 是在客人走后,他才说出了秘密。
如果强调由not…until till 引导的时间状语时，要注意否定前移。

-- It was not until after liberation that he returned to his hometown. 他是解放后才回到他家乡的。

在强调结构It iswas ...that ...中，要用because来引导原因状语从句，不用since或as。（见第11章 状语从句）
The tailor made a suit to my own measure.
-- It was to my own measure that the tailor made a suit. 裁缝是按我自己的尺寸做了一套衣服。
⑧with without 复合结构
“with without+名词代词+其他成分”这种结构，也可以放在It iswas ... that 中，成为被强调的部分。

有时强调句在形式上和定语从句、状语从句很相似。我们除了从意思上进行区分外，还能根据强调句结构特点来进行判断，如能去掉It was ...that ... 后，句子仍然通顺，就是强调句。

是在火车站我们16年前第一次相逢。（强调句，强调地点状语at the railway station）
