10 syllables, probably 5 feet of 2 syllables each.
December 23, 2014

creative writing
#1 - C is correct. #2 - A is correct. #3 -- a "foot" in poetry is dependent on the arrangement of syllables and which syllables are stressed (spoken more loudly) than the others. So first, count the syllables in that line. How many syllables do you hear?

Anna is right ... and you can see it in every sonnet. There's some kind of contrast word or a shift in tone or meaning in that particular line. The voltas in Shakespeare's sonnets are especially easy to find: http://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/shall-i-compare-thee-...

December 16, 2014

English
You're correct that the "that..." clause is a noun clause. The trick is to figure out what's going on in the rest of the sentence. But there's a second noun clause there. Do you see it? "was" is the main verb. What kind of verb is it?

Think of the word "predicate" as meaning the same thing as "verb." In #7, the simple predicate is "made" but the complete predicate (the verb and everything that goes with it) is "made it through the grueling admissions process."
December 16, 2014

English - Writeteacher
Yes, #7 is the complete subject. I'd point out #6 to your teacher as an error. I'll take that sentence apart for you, too ~ She - pronoun, subject had - main verb a - article lengthy - adjective, modifying "career" career - noun, direct object as - ...
December 16, 2014

English - Writeteacher
These are tricky, aren't they? The word "as" has many meanings and uses. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/as?s=t In #6, the word "as" is being used as a preposition. What did you decide about #7?
December 16, 2014

English - Writeteacher
I don't see a correct answer there for #6. The direct object in that sentence is "career." #7 is incorrect.
