You are basically describing comparison and contrast thinking and writing.
Comparison = explaining similarities
Contrast = explaining differences
Exactly what are you assigned to compare and/or contrast. What you have written so far seems very broad? Or are you supposed to decide on a specific example within that broad assignment?
Let us know more about your specific assignment. Meantime, I'll include some websites that may help you:
See #s 2 and 3 for specifics.
well i have two tasks
one is to find some examples of premodification+noun structures in a book and then find croatian equivalents for those strucures in the same book but in croatian.i am done with that and now i need to say if english and croatian examples are formally correspondent and to what degree.The other task is the same only instead of noun structures i have to find adjective structures
I'm not familiar with the term "premodification+noun structures" -- can you give me some examples of such words?
blue car - blue as adjective premodifies a noun car
Well, we just refer to that as an adjective that modifies a noun. "Pre-modifies" is not a grammatical term used here in the US that I know of!!
For a similar structure using adjectives instead of nouns -- that is, words that modify adjectives instead of words that modify nouns -- you'll need to focus on adverbs.
He is really sick today.
In that sentence, "really" is an adverb that modifies the adjective "sick."
Is that what you are referring to?
yes, thank you:)
You're very welcome!!
