Transcript of Grammar

Grammar Nouns Adjectives Parts of Speech A person, place, or thing. A word that modifies a noun or pronoun. Pronouns A word that replaces a noun. Antecedent is the word that is replaced. NO "Hamlet went to New York where Hamlet went to see the opera." "Hamlet went to New York where he went to see the opera." Yes :) Adjectives do not describe nouns. Adjectives modify nouns. Adjectives change nouns. Picture a tree
Now picture a family tree
Now a palm tree

I, you, he, she, it, we, you, they They are our subjects! Object Pronouns: me, you, him, her, it, us, you, them "She and I went to the cathedral." They must be used as direct/indirect objects, objects of prepositions and others! "The present was for him and me." Linking verbs link. Action Verbs show the subject acting. "Sue caught the fish." "Sue is my friend."
Sue = my friend "Sue has a new book." Sue = a new book? If it does not link, it is not linking. A word that modifies a verb, adjective or another adverb. Adverb "He and she swim well." "The adverb is not your friend."
- Stephen King Preposition Shows a relationship between its object (object of the preposition) and another word in the sentence. Prepositions show: time (before, during, after)
