Noun- person, place, thing, or idea
Boom first one!!!!!
One important fact to know is what a simple sentence is. A simple sentence is a sentence with a subject and a verb. An example would be: I ran.
Compund sentence: a sentence with two independent clauses.
Example: Conor was the first student to get on the blog, but he is stupid.
Be nice, Riley.
Adjective- A word that describes a noun.
Example- My dog is adorable. Adorable describes the noun, dog.
For example: Riley is a funny guy for posting about me. The nouns are Riley, guy!!!!!
Be nice, Conor. (And I don't know what your last sentence means.)
A compound-complex sentence is made from two independent clauses and one or more dependent clauses.
Ex: Although I like to go shopping, I haven't had the time to go lately, and I haven't found anyone to go with.
Complex sentence- A sentence containing a subordinate clause or clauses.
Sorry I forgot an example: After I got home, I did my homework.
Dependent Clause: A sentence that can not stand alone and includes an independent clause.
Example: I went home and slept for 3 hours when i should have been studying for the trig regents that i am doomed to fail.
Independent- I went home.
Dependent:and slept for 3 hours when i should have been studying for the trig regents that i am doomed to fail.
"I went home and slept for three hours"
"WHEN I should have been studying for the trig regents"
"THAT I am doomed to fail"
(I think that's basically what you already had, Sophie, but I had to clarify just in case.)
Are you ready?!?
Semicolons are used to combine long sentences that are closely related. Unlike commas that are used to combine short sentences. Also, semicolons can be used if you have two independent clauses that are very similar.
For example: My aunt also had hairy knuckles; she loved to wash and comb them.
Hey Folks!! What is a preposition you ask?
A preposition is a word that shows relationship with other words in a sentence. These relationships can be a direction, place or time. For example: The boy ran under the table. Under would be the preposition.
Something you might like to know is, what is a pronoun. A pronoun is a noun that is use in place of a more specific noun. For example if you say Greta is a cool person, you could replace Greta with she and the sentence would become she is a cool person.
Commas can be used for long sentences, too. The length doesn't really matter. If you use one of the FANBOYS, you need a comma. If you use a semi-colon, you don't need the FANBOYS. (They are like honey-badgers; they just don't care.)
(This is in reply to Brittany.)
My helpful hint for the final is describing an adverb. An adverb is a word used to desribe a verb (they usually end with "ly").
Ex. Greta ran swiftly. Swiftly would be the adverb in this situation.
A verb is something that you do.
For example: Conor and Riley are arguing.
If you want to use what dana said, you can insert intensely or angrily.
"Who" refers to a person. "That" or "which" refers to a group.
I am the one who killed the squirrel.
They are part of the team that won the championship.
A hyperbole is a exaggeration:deliberate and obvious exaggeration used for effect.
EX: I could eat a million of these!
A simile compares two things using "like" or "as." For example, the boiling water was like touching the sun!
I will keep this little blog here so you and I can communicate better. Please note that it does not replace your BRAIN. Attend class, take notes, ask questions - these are your best and most powerful tools - not the blog.
