Grammar Homework due 01-10-18

TB p. 57 Ex. 2 WO; Ex. 1 TB p. 58 – ALL WRITTEN OUT.

Notes for anyone who needs to catch up:

1/9 – INTRO TO ARTICLES & NUMERICAL ADJS:
Numerical ADJS: self-explanatory – by their name, they tell you number/amount of a noun/PN
Ex: She had 220 (numerical ADJ modifying guests) guests at her wedding.
Ex: Nineteen (numerical ADJ mod people) people were injured in the accident. **Whenever a number begins the sentence, it must be written out.
Ex: The three (numerical adjective modifying friends) friends traveled to Montreal.
Ex: His first (numerical adj mod day) day after the break was rough. HIS = POSS ADJ; ROUGH = DESCRIPTIVE ADJ SUBJ COMPL
DO NOT CONFUSE A NUMERICAL ADJ WITH A NUMBER THAT IS A NOUN (CHECK BY ASKING YOURSELF WHAT IT IS MODIFYING): Thousands (N-SUBJ) attended the concert.
ARTICLES – The (definite article) – talks about something specific v. a/an (used before vowel sounds) (indefinite articles) – talks about something more generally ** You will never be asked to ID articles on a quiz/test.
Ex: She wanted permission to see the (definite article – ADJ mod. movie) movie.
Ex: An awkward encounter with their headmaster left them upset. (AN is used b/c of the AW sound in awkward – vowel sound; with that said, if you had to state what word AN modifies, you would say encounter [N])
REMEMBER – NOT ABOUT THE VOWEL; IT’S ABOUT THE VOWEL SOUND
