General Review Sentences have: Subject-who is sentence about EVERY SENTENCE HAS ONE Verb- action or state of being of subject EVERY SENTENCE HAS ONE Object- who or what the action is happening to NOT IN EVERY SENTENCE

Practice? Chapter 5 Review Pronouns-take the place of proper noun Capitalizing pronoun? Can it replace the name directly? I went to see my B/brother today I went to see my Matt today. NO! Lowercase brother I went to see M/mom today. I went to see Rose today.

YES! Uppercase Mom Chapter 5 Review Subject/Verb must agree One subject/one group-singular verb More than one subject or plural subject-plural verb Verb tenses must match sentence meaning and context Past tense sentence? Action happened in past? Past tense verb! I go to the store. I got some candy there.

NO! I went to the store. I got some candy there. Chapter 6 Review Punctuation! Comma- connecting two independent clauses with conjunction OR connecting two independent clauses with conjunction OR listing OR dates OR used to separate quotes Semicolon- beginning a list with commas OR connecting two INDEPENDENT CLAUSES Apostrophe- can show ownership in singular or plural nouns depending on

placement OR can connect and shorten two words (contraction) Quotes- around what is said in a sentence OR titles of shorter works Chapter 6 Review Plurals and apostrophes Noun with regular plurality rules (add s) Nurse-1 nurse Nurses-2+ nurses Nurses- 1 nurse owns something (nurses outfit, nurses shift) Nurses- 2+ nurses own something (nurses outfits, nurses shifts)

Can tell because of nouns following nurse if apostrophe is correct or it is a mistake in grammar If noun shows plurality in another way: Man- 1 man Men- 2+ men Mans- 1 man owns something Mens- 2+ men own something Chapter 6 Review Pronouns and Ownership

NEVER apostrophes in pronoun ownership, just special pronouns His, her, its, my, their Its= it is theyre= they are NOT POSSESSION OR PLURAL! Chapter 7 Review Clauses-two types Dependent- needs connection to an independent clause through comma and connecting word (conjunction)

And, or, although, but, if Independent- does not need to be connected to anything; can stand on its own CAN be connected to another independent clause (2 ways) Comma+conjunction Semicolon ; Be careful of Run-ons, comma splices, sentence fragments Chapter 7 Review Adjectives-describe NOUNS

Adverbs-describe VERBS Parallel structure-verbs must match tense I went to the store and bought candy, had fun with my friends, and run into my old teacher. What is wrong there? RUN!
