Transcript of Parallelism

Parallelism
Welcome!
What is Parallelism?
How to apply parallelism in your own communication!
Did you guess the problem?
Harry loved to hike, to bike,
and running
.
After finishing this tutorial, you will have:
a better understanding of Parallelism and its grammatical purpose
be able to apply parallelism in your own communication.
Work hard and have fun!
Can you spot the problem
with this sentence?
Harry loved
to hike
,
to bike
,
and running
.
These words don't match!
to Hike
, and ,

to Bike

both are

present verbs
.

They match!

"
and running
"

doesn't match either of these, because it is

continuous

and ends in

"
ing
".

"
Hiking
" and "
running
" are different then "
to hike
" and "
to run
" and therefore this sentence isn't parallel!
What Should it say?
Harry Likes to hike, to bike, and to run
Harry Likes to hike, to bike, and run
Harry Likes to hike, to bike, and he likes running
Did you guess...
Harry Likes to hike, to bike and to run.
if so, you are correct! because we changed "
running
" to "
to run
", we made this sentence parallel. Nice work!
Tabitha is confused. Her teacher has asked her to describe her weekend, using parallel structure. She knows she
went to the mall to shop
,
she went for a hike
,
and went for a bike ride with her dad
. Can you help Tabitha put her ideas into parallel structure?
Step 1
First, we need to focus on
"went to the mall to go shopping"
...
Instead of
"went to the mall to go shopping"
we could just say she
"went shopping"
Step 2
Now we have to change
"went for a hike
" to a structure that would match
"went shopping"
Instead of "
went for a hike
"

we could just say she "
went hiking
"
Step 3
Lastly, we have to change "
went for a bike with her dad
" to a structure that would match
"went shopping"
and

"went hiking"
Instead of "
went for a bike with her dad
"

we could just say she "
went biking
"
So what did Tabitha do this weekend?
Tabitha
went shopping
,
went hiking
and
went biking!
You've reached the end of the tutorial!

We hope you now have have:
a better understanding of Parallelism and its grammatical purpose
are able to apply parallelism in your own communication.
See you next time!!
