snagged-Catch or tear (something) on a projection
Catch or tear (something) on a projectionThis sentence has a very confusing phras
e/idiomatic construction: At once X and Y. The way this construction works is the X
and the Y stand for words or phrases that are always going to be opposite to ea
ch other. For example, He was at once vain, bragging about his latest exploits, a
nd humble, blushing when people praised him. In this example sentence, vain stands
for X and humble stands for Y. Notice how the two are opposites. Notice also how t
hat both X and Y are expanded on: X = bragging about his latest exploits and Y = b
lushing when people praised him. Again, these two parts of the sentence are oppo
site.
In the sentence to the actual question, we have pioneering as the X. The first bla
nk therefore is the Y, and must be opposite to X. Derivative, which means taken fr
om some other source/not original, matches up best. The next part of the sentenc
e, her work owes a substantial, corresponds to derivative, since she owes something t
o the work of people who came before her (notice how this meaning is opposite to
pioneering). Therefore, we know the last part of the sentence must refer to pionee
ring. To be pioneering in this context is to blaze trails intellectually and come u
p with new ideas. Thus, she has done much to advance her field
