Sentence Types PLUS Subjects and Predicates

Thank you for your posts. Some of your classmates have not posted yet. If you can reach them to let them know they should post, please do!

Some posts include incomplete dependent clauses. Remember, a clause has to have a noun and a verb. For example, "After the game (noun)" is NOT a clause, but "After the girls (noun) left (verb)" is a clause. Please recheck your last post to make sure that all your dependent clauses have both a noun and a verb in them. Please repost any corrections.

As a class, we possess a basic understanding of dependent and independent clauses. To build on that knowledge, please read and take notes on the four types of sentences listed on the Sentence Types page:

http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/573/02/

After two posts where we successfully identified parts of speech (nouns, verbs, pronouns), we can now learn a different (but complementary) set of labels for the words in a sentence. Please read and take notes on subjects and predicates at this page:

http://www.arts.uottawa.ca/writcent/hypergrammar/subjpred.html

The most clear and helpful part of the subject/predicate page is the part labeled “Simple Subject and Simple Predicate”. For extra practice, you may also want to take advantage of the subject and predicate review links in the left column of that page.

For this post (DUE BY AUGUST 20th):

· Create one simple sentence.

· Create one compound sentence.

· Create one complex sentence.

· Create one compound-complex sentence.

· Label the predicate(s) and subject(s) in each sentence.

· Label the dependent and independent clauses in each sentence.
