Clause and Phrses

...Clauses and Phrases Skip to the clauses & phrases worksheets. Clauses and phrases are the building blocks of sentences. Every sentence must have at least one clause to be considered grammatically correct. Understanding how clauses and phrases work will help you better understand sentence structure. You’ll need to have a working knowledge of subjects, predicates, and objectsbefore you continue. Clauses A clause is a subject and a predicate working together. Examples I took the dog to the park. The example has one subject, I, and one predicate, took. Since they are working together to form a comprehensible sentence, this sentence has one clause. I love learning, so I spend a lot of time reading. This example has two predicates: love and spend. Since they are each working together with separate subjects, this sentence has two clauses. Phrases A phrase is a group of words related to the subject, predicate, or object. Phrases do not contain a subject and a predicate, or we would call them clauses. Phrases provide additional information about subjects, predicates, and / or objects, and understanding how they work is helpful to building an analyzing sentences. Examples After working late into the night, Jack fell asleep on his desk. The emboldened portion of the sentence exemplifies the phrase. It provides additional information about our subject, Jack, but the sentence does not require this information to be grammatically complete. I left my keys inside of the......

Commerce Clause

...The Commerce Clause: Protector of Trade or Tool for Expanding Government Power? Ever since its inclusion in the Constitution, the Commerce Clause, along with the Necessary and Proper clause, has been a source of debate and contention. Indeed, there were over 1400 cases filed with the Supreme Court challenging its application before the 20th century alone. With the passage of the controversial Affordable Care Act, the Commerce Clause was brought once more to the forefront of national attention. The Obama administration, and other prominent voices on the Left, claim that the clause itself gave them broad powers of control and regulation. Those on the Right claim that the clause was put into place specifically to limit the influence of the Federal government on the power of trade between the states. The question is clear: does the Commerce Clause truly grant unlimited power to expand the Federal government through regulation, or has it been abused by those in the Federal government off and on since its inception? I will attempt to answer this question by examining first the Clause itself, the Federalist Paper written by James Madison (the father of the Commerce Clause) and then the Supreme Court cases which have called it into question. Let us begin by examining the wording of the Commerce Clause (along with the Necessary and Proper clause) itself: The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the...

Phrases

...Functions of phrases – Улогата на фразите Зборовите се комбинираат едни со други, за да се формира фраза, а фразите се една од основните шеми по која се гради реченицата. Фразата претставува група од зборови која што функционира како една единица, и не вклучува глагол во неа. Фразите можат да имаат различни улоги во една реченица. Тие може да функционираат како предмет, подмет, додаток, надополнувач, и прилошка фраза. Фразата претставува продолжение на на еден од зборовите во неа, којшто се нарекува глава на реченицата. На пример, зборот “creatures” (суштества) е главен збор во фразата “the strange green creatures with huge heads” (чудните зелени суштества со огромни глави). Секоја фраза се состои од најмалце два збора. (big dog големо куче) Фразите можат да се формираат и со многу повеќе зборови (that lovley old pub by the bridge over the river прекрасната стара кафеана до мостот преку реката). Некаде дури може да се забележат фрази од само еден збор. Фраза во рамките на друга фраза Подолгите фрази се составени од помали фрази. На пример: -That lovely old pub (by (the bridge (over (the river). river the river over the river the bridge over the river…итн. Фразите можат да имаат повеќе различни функции, и тоа: глаголски фрази, придавски фрази, предлошки фрази, прилошки фрази. Не постојат некои правила кои укажуваат што ја и што не ја сочинува фразата.

Adr Clause

...ADR Clause for Learning Team Charter Paper Mohammed Hassan, Michael Marzilli, Laura Melberg, DeShawn Rivera, Vanessa Stricklin ETH/321 December 9, 2014 John Koenig ADR Clause for Learning Team Charter Paper The concept of teamwork helps on many levels, in order to get the work done in hopes of building a better business. Finding the best way to handle individual disputes on a personal and business level. The resolution may come in contact with some disagreements. The Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) would be something that we would have as a backup. When things are not going very well then this is when we can implement this, so things settle professionally. Courts aren't the only avenues to resolve disputes; ADR are on the horizon of many individuals and businesses to resolve conflicts and disagreements. According to Melvin P. Sean, (2011), the increased numbers of individuals and companies utilizing different means other than courts, such as ADR to resolve disputes is between 20 to 31 percent. Courts procedures are drawn-out and lengthy, and many believe the time spent in courtrooms, could be spent in other productive activities. In addition, courts litigation are publicly exposed which risks leaking out valuable businesses' formulas and information that’s as equally important as any tangible assets. Below is each of these methods, how they function and in what particular circumstances and......

Phrases

..."Broke" is an informal way of saying "broken."  Long time ago broken was defined as "having no money" or to "become bankrupt, to fail."  Although the meaning long time ago meant bankrupt, it is used regularly just to express you don't have any money at that moment. "I'm flat broke." "I can't afford to buy that television.  I'm totally broke." "I can't pay my bills.  I'm broke." Beats Me Meaning/Usage: To not know; to not understand Explanation: Not many resources on this phrase, but could come from beating information out of someone.  When someone is holding back information, they would get beat until they tell the answer.  In this case, the person could be saying that even if I was beaten, I wouldn't know.  Therefore, it became popular to say "beats me" to indicate you do not know. "It beats me how they finished before us." "Beats me why he was so mean to you." "Beats me how she found out we did it." I Don't Buy it Meaning/Usage: Disagree; to not be convinced Explanation: This phrase comes from a popular way of getting agreement, which is "buy in."  For example, a company director can say, "we need buy in from all the board members to proceed."  In this statement, "buy in" is getting agreement.  Therefore, if you "don't buy it," then you are not agreeing. "He said he didn't do it but I don't buy it." "Their prices are supposed to be better but I don't buy it." "She said she was sorry but I don't buy it." Keep Your Cool Meaning/Usage: To act......

Conditional and Phrases

...I. Introduction: As we know there are four basics English conditionals that we use to express possible or imaginary situations: Zero, First, Second, and Third. Conditional sentences contain two clauses: the “if” (condition) clause, and the “result “clause. All conditionals have two easy, possible structures and either structure can be used without changing the meaning.  We can put the “if” clause first, or the “result” first.  Note that we only use a comma when the “if” clause come first. II. Hero Conditional: Form: In hero conditional sentences, the tense in both parts of the sentences is the simple present. |If clause (condition) |Main clause (result) | |If + simple present |Simple present | |If this thing happens |That thing happens | As in all conditional sentences, the order of the clauses is not fixed. You may have to rearrange the pronouns and adjust punctuation when you change the order of the clauses, but the meaning is identical. In zero conditional sentences, you can replace "if" with "when", because both express general truths. The meaning will be unchanged. For examples: 1. If you heat ice, it melts. 2. Ice melts if you heat it. 3. When you heat......

Apossitive Phrases

...THE APPOSITIVE PHRASE An appositive is a word placed after another word to explain or identify it. The appositive always appears after the word it explains or identifies. It is always a noun or a pronoun, and the word it explains is also a noun or pronoun. ex. My uncle, a lawyer, is visiting us. My teacher, Miss Marshall, is very strict. An appositive phrase consists of the appositive and its modifiers which may themselves be phrases. ex. My radio, an old portable, is in the repair shop. The boys climbed the mountain, one of the highest in the West. Identifying Appositive Phrases. Underline the appositive phrase in each of the following sentences. Example: Our house, a brick bungalow, is on Oak Street. 1. Queen Victoria, one of England's greatest monarchs, ruled for sixty-three years. 2. Jane made the salad, a tossed one with French dressing. 3. Harvey Jensen, the pro at the country club, is giving me golf lessons. 4. James Hilton's book, Lost Horizon, has been filmed twice. 5. Chemistry, Sue's favorite subject, is easy for her. 6. Jerry is visiting in Peoria, his old home town. 7. Mr. and Mrs. Miller, our neighbors for the past eight years, are moving to Dallas. 8.

Clauses

...2/20/13 Clauses and Phrases Clauses and Phrases To understand punctuation, it is helpful to understand the difference between a phrase and a clause. I. A phrase is a collection of words that may have nouns or verbals, but it does not have a subject doing a verb. The following are examples of phrases: leaving behind the dog smashing into a fence before the first test after the devastation between ignorance and intelligence broken into thousands of pieces because of her glittering smile In these examples above, you will find nouns (dog, fence, test, devastation, ignorance, intelligence, thousands, pieces). You also have some verbals (leaving, smashing), but in no case is the noun functioning as a subject doing a predicate verb. They are all phrases. II. A clause is a collection of words that has a subject that is actively doing a verb. The following are examples of clauses: since she laughs at diffident men I despise individuals of low character when the saints go marching in Obediah Simpson is uglier than a rabid raccoon because she smiled at him. In the examples above, we find either a noun or a pronoun that is a subject (bold-print and red) attached to a predicate verb (underlined and purple) in each case: since she laughs at diffident men I despise individuals of low character when the saints go marching in Obediah Simpson is uglier than a rabid raccoon because she smiled at him III. If the clause could stand by itself, and form a......
