Grammar for The Cook (Chapter 2)

1. When a parallel structure is used, words make a pattern because the same structure is repeated. For example, sometimes a noun is repeated: ‘My favourite cities are London, New York and Edinburgh.’ In this example, the parallel structure comes from having three nouns (London, New York and Edinburgh) repeated. Sometimes a verb (in the same tense) is repeated. For example, ‘Don’t eat and talk at the same time!’ In this case, the parallel structure comes from repeating two bare infinitives (‘eat’ and ‘talk’).

2. Look at this example from The Cook (Chapter 2) can you find examples of parallel structures?

Grammar for The Cook (Chapter 1)

1. A phrase is a group of words. It is longer than one word but shorter than a complete sentence (or paragraph). A noun phrase (NP) is a group of words around a head noun. A head noun is the most important noun in the phrase. Here are some examples.

a. The blue car didn’t stop at the red light. 

=Two NPs: ‘The blue car‘ and ‘the red light‘.

The head nouns are ‘car’ and ‘light’

b. Her English teacher is from northern England.

=Two NPs: ‘Her English teacher‘ and ‘northern England‘.

The head nouns are ‘teacher’ and ‘England’

c. Sally’s cat chased her friend’s dog!

=Two NPs: ‘Sally’s cat‘ and ‘her friend’s dog

The head nouns are ‘cat’ and ‘dog’

 

2. How many NPs does this sentence have? What are they? What are the head nouns?

The book that I borrowed yesterday was from the school library.

 

3. Now look at this extract from The Cook (Chapter 1). Can you find some NPs?

Grammar activity for The Janitor (Chapter 5)

1. Simple sentences often have one subject, one main verb and one object. For example, ‘She went home’. However, if the subject is repeated and one action follows another, we can make use of ellipsis, which means we can avoid repeating the subject when we talk about another action that the same subject does.

Instead of writing ‘She went home and she fell asleep’ (or ‘She went home. She fell asleep immediately.), we can remove the repeated subject ‘she’. As a result, the sentence becomes: She went home and fell asleep immediately

2. From The Janitor (Chapter 5) find some examples of this kind of sentence.

1. Prepositions are usually followed by nouns or noun phrases. For example, I live in a large city.

The preposition in this sentence is ‘in‘ and the noun phrase that follows it is ‘a large city

We can add more information to a simple sentence by adding prepositions:

a. I saw an unusual bird.

b. In the afternoon, I saw an unusual bird.

c. In the afternoon, I saw an unusual bird beside my car.

d. In the afternoon, I saw an unusual bird on the grass beside my car.
