Substitution - Shorten the sentences

substitution Look at these two sentences and their differences:  I have never been to America but my sister has been to America. I have never been to America but my sister has been there. Not those plates, I mean the plates in the corner. Not those plates, I mean the ones in the corner. To shorten sentences and still retain the meaning we can sometimes drop some words and substitute them with a single word. In the above examples the word ‘there’ is substituted for the word ‘America’ and the word ‘ones’ is used for the word ‘plates.’ Instead of just leaving the word out, we substitute it with another word, usually ‘so’, ‘one(s)’, ‘do(es)’ and ‘did’. Replacing a noun phrase Would you like to have a chocolate biscuit? Yes I would love a chocolate biscuit.’ Substitution: ‘Yes, I would love one.’ Replacing a verb phrase: I didn’t like the show, but everyone else liked the show. Substitution: I didn’t like the show, but everyone else did. Look at the below example sentences, rewrite them wit

Went Sentence Examples

I told them about a week ago and I went over it again with them today. 3 2 Carmen's mouth went dry with fear. 1 The coop was a comfortable 48°F - warm enough to keep the eggs from freezing, but cold enough that the chickens didn't get shocked by the temperature change when they went out of the coop. 1 Once the horses were fed, watered and released, she went back to the house. 1 That arching of the back was the only warning Alex had before the horse went into a bucking frenzy.

Changing to Passive Voice - few tricks

We will not remove anything from the active sentences. Just change the places of Doer and the Done. Helping verbs will never be removed. Only their forms are changed accordingly and on their position only. Main verbs are always changed to third forms in passive sentences. Above stated is easy. One more thing is more easy. Just add a form of BE equivalent to the main verb in the Active Sentence to the passive sentences. Example -  He is eating food. Now as per rules. Food and He will change places. Is will remain there. The only thing we have to do is to add the equal form of BE to be added for the main verb. The main verb in active sentence is Eating. Then the equal form of BE is BEING. Ok, add being. Here you go Food is being eaten by him. more to come  Keep following our BLOG.... Merry Christmas.

Finally, other verbs are followed by a noun, noun phrase or pronoun and then the infinitive. All of these verbs follow no specific rules, and must be memorized. The following list provides verbs that are immediately followed by the infinitive form of another verb (verb + to do). Each verb followed by the infinitive is followed by two example sentences to provide context. 1. afford I can't afford to go on vacation this summer. Can you afford to buy that sweater? 2. agree I agreed to help him with the problem. Do you think he would agree to take the test again? 3. appear He appears to think I'm crazy! They appear to be available tomorrow. 4. arrange I arranged to spend the week in New York. Mary arranges to meet everyone each time. 5. ask She asked to do the job. Franklin will ask to be promoted. 6. beg Shelley begged to

Inversion of subject and verb

DECEMBER 13, 2014 In English, the usual order of words in a sentence is subject + verb + object. Sometimes certain adverbs come at the beginning of the sentence. This order is then inverted and the verb comes before the subject. Study the following sentences. Scarcely had I stepped out when the telephone rang. Hardly had I reached the station when the train departed. No sooner had she read the telegram than she started crying. Never have I seen such a mess. Note that the sentences given above can also be written with normal word order. I had scarcely stepped out when the telephone rang. I had hardly reached the station when the train departed. Exercise Rewrite the following sentences, putting the adverb first and inverting the subject and verb. 1. I have seldom heard such a beautiful voice. 2. He had hardly sat down for dinner when someone knocked at the door. 3. I have never heard such utter nonsense. 4. They not only looted the shop, but also set fire
