Homework Help: English

Posted by James on Tuesday, March 20, 2007 at 1:12pm.

Hi, I'm having trouble understanding this sentence...

"It comes upon one with new force in the pauses of the night that the Chaldeans were a desert-bred people."

I don't know understandy why the last part of the sentence starts with "that" is in there, please help.

When you ignore the prepostional phrases in the sentence, you will see that the last part of the sentence follows, "It comes upon one...", which needs the word "that" to have a clear meaning.

Well explained, Tammy. We all need to remember that prepositional phrases interrupt sentences in all kinds of places and often contribute to grammatical errors if we're not careful!

Congrats!

=)

Thank you.
