据说，中国留学生在英文论文写作时，传统的三大主语分别是：people/ there be/ it。虽然不确定这个总结的权威性，但是不得不承认的是，大家写出来的句子，确实很像。而这种相似性，很多时候来自于句首的几个单词。
如果以 people 开始整句话，八成后面是一个比较简单的句子，people will 做什么事情，people should 做什么事情。如果是 there be，则后面跟一个名词，然后再加动词的时候，还可能会出现语法的错误（没有加 which，或者变分词）。

一般：uses a variety of complex structures

如果句首不是直接出现主句，不妨先出现从句，根据相应的逻辑关系，选取合适的连词即可。大部分的从句，特别是状语从句，都可以放在句首，然后再写主句（so that 结果状语从句除外）。
除了各种状语从句（if/ when/ because/ although/ in order that/ where）之外，比较少用的主语从句，也可能出现在句首。
