Comma Splice

 

A comma splice is the use of a comma to join two independent clauses.

 

Example: It is nearly half past five, we cannot reach town before dark.

 

Although acceptable in some languages and compulsory in others (e.g., Bulgarian or French), comma splices are usually considered style errors in English.

Compound-Complex Sentences

 

To understand a compound complex sentence, let's review compound sentences and complex sentences.

compound sentence is made of two simple sentences joined by a conjunction (FANBOY).

complex sentence is made of a simple sentence and a dependent, or subordinate, clause (has a subject and a verb but does not express a complete thought. (AAAWWUBBIS)

So, a compound complex sentence is made up of more than one sentence joined by a conjunction, and at least one of those sentences is complex. In other words, it is a compound sentence with a dependent, or subordinate clause.

Examples of Compound Complex Sentences:

In these examples, the dependent, or subordinate, clause is underlined.

1When I grow up, I want to be a ballerina, and my mom is proud of me.

2. I will get to watch television, but first, I have to clean up the dishes after we finish eating.

3. We won the game, but my uniform was muddy because it rained the entire time.

4. After our trip to the beach, school started back, and I was excited to see my friends.

Predicate Nominatives 

 

predicate nominative - a noun or pronoun which follows the verb and describes or renames the subject. It is another way of naming the subject. It follows a linking verb.  

 

 

In the following examples, the predicate nominative is bold and the subject is underlined.

 

  • At the end of the tournament, Tiger Woods was the leader.

 

The subject and the predicate nominative are essentially the same thing.

 

  • For many of us on the team, the fans were an embarrassment.

EMBARRASSMENT restates the subject FANS.

  • When the plot is discovered, Andrea will be a suspect.

Look for the subject, decide whether the verb indicates a state of being and find out what “state” the subject is in.

  • Before the announcement, they were the favorites to win the contest.

 

Once you identify the verb, ask whether the verb was done to someone or something. For example: Did THEY do something? No, they just were. What they WERE is FAVORITES, making FAVORITES the predicate nominative.

https://www.quia.com/rr/805155.html - Predicate Nominative - Rags to Riches

 

 

What is the difference between a predicate nominative and a predicate adjective?

Adjective complements are also called predicate adjectives; noun complements are also called predicate nouns or predicate nominatives. See predicates, above. An object complement follows and modifies or refers to a direct object. It can be a noun or adjective or any word acting as a noun or adjective.

Transitive & Intransitive Verbs 

 

 

What Are Transitive Verbs? (with Examples)

A transitive verb is a verb that can take a direct object. In other words, it is done to someone or something. Most verbs are transitive.

 


 A transitive verb contrasts with an intransitive verb. An intransitive verb cannot have a direct object.

Here is an example of a transitive verb:

  • He read a book.

Read (from to read) is a transitive verb. In this example, the direct object is a book. To read is transitive because you can read something. You can read a poem, a story, a face, a horoscope, etc.)

 

Here is an example of an intransitive verb:

  • He snores.

(Snores (from to snore) is an intransitive verb. It has no direct object. You cannot snore something.)

 

 

A verb can be classified as transitive or intransitive according to whether it takes or doesn't take an object:

  • If a verb takes objects, then it is a transitive verb.
    Example:
    They played soccer. → (The verb play takes ONE object 'soccer')
    They sent him a postcard. → (The verb send takes TWO objects 'him' and 'a postcard')
  • If a verb doesn't take an object, then it is an intransitive verb.
    Example:
    She lies. → (The verb 'lie' doesn't take any object)
    The building collapsed. → (The verb 'collapse' doesn't take any object)

Examples of Transitive Verbs

Here are some more examples of transitive verbs. Remember, to prove they are transitive, find the verb (shaded) and then ask "what?" or "whom?" to find the direct object (in bold).

  • No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch. (Leo Buscaglia, 1925-1998)

Transitive verbs are very common. They even appear inside the direct objects of other transitive verbs. Look at these examples:

  • I loathe people who keep dogs. They are cowards who haven't got the guts to bite people themselves.
  • (Q: Loathe what? A: people who keep dogs)
    (Q: Got what? A: the guts to bite people)

  • I loathe people who keep dogs. They are cowards who haven't got the guts to bite people themselves.
  • (Q: Keep what? A: dogs)
    (Q: To bite what? A: people)

  • You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow. (Jeff Valdez)
  • (Q: Can't get what? A: eight cats to pull a sled through snow)

  • You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.
  • (Q: To pull what? A: a sled)

Examples of Verbs Which Are Transitive and Intransitive

Some verbs can be transitive and intransitive. For example:

  • Mark walks his dog for miles

(To walk is transitive.)

Direct object

A direct object answers the question "what?" or "whom?"

Examples:

  • David repaired his car his car is the direct object of the verb repaired. ( What did David repair?)
  • He invited Mary to the party Mary is the direct object of the verb invited. (Whom did he invite?)

Indirect Object

An indirect object answers the question "to whom?", "for whom?", "for what?"...

An indirect object is the recipient of the direct object, or an otherwise affected participant in the event. There must be a direct object for an indirect object to be placed in a sentence. In other words an indirect object cannot exist without a direct object.

Examples:

  • They sent him a postcard - him is the indirect object of the verb sent. (To whom did they send a postcard?)
  • He bought his son a bike - his son is the indirect object of the verb bought. (For whom did he buy a bike?)

 

Finding the Direct Object

Remember, to find a direct object of a transitive verb, first find the verb and then ask "what?" (or "whom?").
(Note: If this question seems nonsensical, then you're probably dealing with an intransitive verb.)

In each example below, the transitive verb is shaded and direct object is in bold.

  • Lee loves pies.
  • (Q: Loves what? A: pies)
    (The direct object is

pies. To love is a transitive verb. It has a direct object.)

  • Lee eats cakes.

(Q: Eats what? A: cakes)
(The direct object is cakes. To eat is a transitive verb. It has a direct object.)

Direct objects aren't usually single words. They are usually noun phrases. For example:

  • Lee loves mince pies.
  • Lee eats dozens of cakes.
  • Mary saw the eagle two days after it escaped.
  • As the clock struck midnight, all the toys opened their eyes.
  • (Q: Struck what? A: midnight)
    (Note: A direct object does not have to be something tangible. If it answers the question "what?" or "whom?" in relation to a verb, then it's a direct object. The word

midnight is not tangible, but it is a perfectly good direct object for the verb to strike.)

Compare the examples above to this intransitive verb:

  • They arrived after the party.
  • (Q: Arrived what? That doesn't make sense. You can't arrive

something. Arrive is an intransitive verb. It can't take a direct object.)
