6 Part 4: Grammar: Students should be prepared to recognize Basic Sentence Parts. Write the definition for subject : The essential noun or pronoun that cannot be left out of a complete subject. It is doing the verb. Recognize these four types of Simple Sentences Write the definition for predicate : A word that expresses time while showing an action, a condition or he fact that something exists. How many complete thoughts does a simple sentence express? Just 1 Simple subject simple predicate Compound subject Compound predicate Compound subject + compound predicate Directions: Label for Type of Simple Sentence Compound subject Circle predicates, box subjects, and draw vertical lines between subjects and predicates. High school students and teachers spend a lot of time reading literature. Compound subject + compound predicate The Most Dangerous Game and The Cask of Amontillado offer suspense to readers and deliver on that promise. Compound predicate The teachers here understand students and try to make classes enjoyable. Simple subject + simple predicate High school classes prepare students for their futures. Compound predicate Students love the early start time of high school and jump out of bed in the morning. 6

7 Recognize how to identify the job each noun in a sentence is doing and the type of verb in that sentence. This is how you figure out which job each word is doing: For LINKING Verbs Step 1: Declutter (Remove prepositional phrases). Step 2: Locate the verb. Step 5: Ask What ELSE is the subject? Predicate nominative = a noun Predicate adjective = an adjective Step 3: Ask Who is doing the verb? That s the subject. Step 4: Do the Linking Verb Test For ACTION Verbs Step 5: Ask What is receiving the action of the subject? That s the direct object. Step 6: Ask Is anyone receiving the direct object (but NOT stuck in a prepositional phrase)? That s the indirect object. Directions: Underline the prepositional phrases in these sentences and loop around the OBJECT of the PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE. See the example. 1. The high school hallways are color-coded throughout the building. 2. Some of the staff members with the black or red shirts are the security guards. (HINT! Do you see which word is the subject?) 3. Students rush to their classes and fumble with their too-many possessions. 4. Sometimes teachers are forced to give detentions to their late students. Next, make sure you do the Linking Verb Test. Identify each verb below as linking or action. Remember, if a verb passes the test, it s a linking verb. If it fails, then it s automatically an action verb. is = is = EX. The magician appears suddenly, and the child appears startled. FAIL! PASS! action linking verb verb Directions: Circle the verb then circle whether it is an action verb (A) or linking verb (L). 1. The students think about their midterms. 4. The young child tastes his first piece of bacon. 2. The teachers feel excited about the tests. 5. The bacon tastes salty and delicious. 3. The students feel the heaviness of their backpacks. 6. The child will become a meat-eater. Linking Verbs are like EQUAL SIGNS. subject = another noun (predicate nominative PN) OR subject = an adjective (predicate adjective PA) Directions: Rewrite each sentence as an equation. Indicate whether the subject is linked to a predicate nominative or adjective. 1. Kailey is a shop-aholic. 1. Kailey = shop-aholic PN PA 2. The stew tastes delicious. 2. Stew = delicious PN PA 3. The kittens seem alert. 3. kittens = alert PN PA 4. Puppies are wonderful pets. 4. Puppies = pets PN PA 7

8 Keep all of this in mind when dealing with ACTION VERBS: EX. 1 No action transferred. Quick Action Verb Facts: *Action verbs SHOW action. EX. 2 Action transferred to a direct object. *The actions can be visible or merely mental (seen or unseen). *Sometimes the action just stays with the subject. EX. 1 *Sometimes the action moves from the subject onto a direct object. EX. 2 EX. 3 Action transferred to a direct object and THEN to an indirect object. *Sometimes the action moves from the subject onto a direct object, and then the direct object goes to an indirect object. EX. 3 *Sometimes the action moves from the subject to a direct object, and then there is NO indirect object because a prepositional phrase is doing the job of the indirect object instead. EX. 4 EX. 4 Direct comparison between indirect object and prepositional phrase. Directions: Look at EX. 1-4 above as examples of how to do these sentences (A-D). Circle action verbs; underline subjects, direct objects, and indirect objects; and underline then loop prepositional phrases. Then use the abbreviations in the box below to label each element. A. The school bus took the kids to school. B. That scene of the movie gave the audience chills. C. The tardy bell rang throughout the school. D. The quiet boy passed the cute girl a note. 8

9 Recognize that Action Verbs can be transitive or intransitive. Write the definition for TRANSITIVE VERB: An action verb that directs the action toward something or someone. Must have an object that can receive the action of the verb. Write the definition for INTRANSITIVE VERB: An action verb that does not direct action toward someone or something. There is no object to receive action. Directions: Circle the action verb in the sentence and then identify as transitive or intransitive. 1. Students think about their midterms. 4. The young child tastes his first piece of bacon. 2. The student reads every day before going to school. 5. Professional athletes train for years. 3. The students feel the heaviness of their backpacks. 6. In the spring, Damien will run his first marathon. Recognize HELPING VERBS when you see one. Write the definition for HELPING VERB: Verbs that can be added to another verb to make a single verb Sometimes other words separate the helping verb and main verb in the sentence. The word not is an example. Sarah couldn t run as fast as Beth. Here the word not separates the helping verb could from the main verb run. Directions: Identify only the helping verb(s) in each sentence and write it on the line: 1. I can t reach the top shelf. 2. It might be full of rowdy passengers, though. 3. Would she prefer to ride with Emily instead? 4. Shall I set the table now? 5. You really must see a doctor about that nasty cut. 6. In the spring, Damien will run his first marathon. Recognize VERB PHRASES when you see one. Write the definition for VERB PHRASE: The main verb and helping verb Since a verb phrase might use up to four words, a short adverb such as also, never, or not might try to sneak in between the parts. When you find an adverb snuggled in a verb phrase, it is still an adverb, not part of the verb. Directions: Identify the verb phrase in each sentence and write it on the line: 1. For her birthday, Selena would also like a dog. 2. To avoid another speeding ticket, Selena will never again take her eyes off the road to fiddle with the radio. 3. Despite the stern warning from Officer Carson, Selena has not lightened her foot on the accelerator. 4. Selena is always disobeying the speed limit. 5. Selena should have been driving with more care, for then she would not have gotten her third ticket this year. 6. The tires screeched as Selena mashed the accelerator. 9

10 Part 5: Vocabulary: Word of the Week : Students should be prepared to define each of the following terms: acclaim: enthusiastic and public praise animosity: strong hostility antecedent: a thing or event that existed before or logically precedes another arbitrary: based on random choice or personal whim, rather than any reason or system archaic: very old or old-fashioned comply: act in accordance with a wish or command callous: showing or having an insensitive and cruel disregard for others contemptuous: scornful cite: quote as evidence for or justification of an argument or statement, especially in a scholarly work denounce: publicly declare to be wrong or evil compatible: able to exist or occur together without conflict devoid: entirely lacking or free from Recommended Study Activities: Complete this study guide Go to the following webpage to review stories and play: Focus specifically on the ones listed in this study guide Go to the following web page: Take practice the Quizlets Go to the following web page: Focus on the grammar listed in the study guide 10
