Homework Help: english

the next paragraph :)
And thank you soooo much for helping me!

Now we wanted to answer the research questions. We will have a closer look to the complements and try to find answers why which verb takes which complement.

The verb to smell took mostly Noun Phrases ( [1] 34 times). Nine times we found an Adjective Phrase [2], four times a Prepositional Phrase [3] and one time a wh-clause complement [4], a ing-participle clause [5] and we find it also one time without an complement [6].
We did not found the verb to smell with that- clause complement in the BNC but nevertheless you can use the verb to smell with one [7].

[1] I could smell smoke and hear the most terrible screams.
[2] But the Recycling Rose does not always smell sweet [...]
[3] [Ö] she was afraid her new dress might soon smell of sweat like the old one.
[4] [Ö] so that you can experience in sight, sound and smell exactly what it was like to live and work in
[5] You could smell rubber burning.
[6] Mind you, he doesn't smell -- he must have got somewhere he can go for a bath at least once.
[7] I smell that you are baking a cake.
