write whether the words in parentheses show compound subject(CS), compound verb(CV),or independent clauses (IC).
1)Latisha (called me after school)IC ,and (asked for help with her project) IC.
2)(I met her at the library), IC and (we went over the assignment).IC
3) (most of the students in the class were writing research papers) CS +CV, but (she made a different decision)IC
4)Latisha ( was designing) CV and (building a model city).IC
5)(One of our teachers) CS,and (several of our classmates)CS were also at the library.
6) Andrea (spotted us) IC and (came over to our table).IC
7) (Andrea), (Latisha), and (I) CS are in the same math class.
8)( We walked to the bus stop together)IC, but( Andrea did not get on the bus with Latisha and me) CV.
9)( Andrea lives close to the library)IC, so (she walked home) IC.
10) We( waved goodbye)IC and (then got on the bus) IC.
Can you check my work please ? thank you
Are you clear on the meaning of all three of these terms?
I don't think so.
Look at #1. The words in the first set of parentheses are a verb and the rest of its phrase (the whole predicate), and the words in the second set of parentheses is the same structure.
What do you know as the definition for IC?
IC is independent clause ,CS compound sentence ,CV compound verb
so what do I answer for the first ? How about the rest are wrong too?
How are you defining Independent Clause?
Correct: 2, 7, 9
The others are not.
IC = independent clause = subject & verb and makes sense by itself (may or may not be a complete sentence)
CV = compound verb = two or more verbs in a clause for the subject
CS = compound subject = two of more subjects in a clause for the verb
(Once in a great while, a sentence might have both a CS and a CV in it.)
A group of words with a subject and a verb.An independent clause expresses a complete thought and can stand alone as a sentence
Is this an independent clause?
called me after school
please help me I am confused ? is not compound verb is not is not compound subject it has to be independent clause
please help me I am confused ? is not compound verb, is not is not compound subject it has to be independent clause or what?
#1 is a sentence that contains a compound verb. You can see the two verb phrases in the two pairs of parentheses.
What do you see in sentence 3?
compound verb because were writing and she made right?
No. #3 has two ICs in it. Each of those verbs has its own subject.
SO let's continue number by number 4 is compound verb ,
Correct. And the others?
6 ) CV
Ahhhh, good. Now all are correct!
Thank you so much for your help now I understand it better.
