be it…or是什么语法,有什么意思?(分析+例句)

在看英国女王2021年圣诞致辞视频里有一段内容是:

Be it the singing of carols – as long as the tune is well known – decorating the tree, giving and receiving presents, or watching a favourite film where we already know the ending, it’s no surprise that families so often treasure their Christmas routines.

唱脍炙人口的圣诞颂歌,装饰圣诞树,赠送和接受礼物,或是看一部早已知道结尾的电影,这是家庭们钟爱的圣诞传统。

这里的Be it其实是be it...or 的一部分,构成一个让步状语从句。相当于 whether...or...

注意这种用法文学气息比较浓。

例子:

Had I known ... = If I had known ...

Had he seen it, ... = If he had seen it, ...

Should you want me, ... = If you should want me, ... = If you wanted me, ...

Were I to say that, ... = If I were to say that, ... = If I said that, ...

Be he good or evil, ... = Whether he is good or evil, ...

Be it so or not, ... = Whether it is so or not, ...
