ENGLISH
There is no correct terminology as "a syntax" or "a diction." What are your exact directions for this?

ENGLISH
Diction refers to the author's choice of words. http://www.answers.com/diction

ENGLISH
That's not a run-on. That's a complex sentence. It has one main (independent) clause and two subordinate (dependent) clauses. The syntax of the sentence tells me what kind of sentence it is.

ENGLISH
http://www.answers.com/topic/syntax Do you consider that to be a short sentence??

Be sure to look up the words "strategy" and "strategist." http://www.dictionary.com The word "strategy" comes from the Greek word meaning a general (στρατηγός or strategos). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki...

English story
My impression is that she likes her father's jobs because they're mostly outdoor jobs ... thus more interesting to her. And yes, that's a good way to describe how she sees her mother's work.

English story
Good! Now incorporate ALL those ideas into your response.

English story
"behavement"? I think you mean "behavior," right? Specifically, what does "ladylike" mean in terms of behavior? Be sure to include all these ideas in your response for this assignment.

English story
What does her mother consider to be "ladylike"? How does she see her mom's jobs and her dad's jobs as different from each other? Does she find one set of jobs more interesting or important than the other?

I agree. The operative word here is "encourage" -- not that such patients are required to do so.

Both mean approximately the same thing, yes. #1 is better, in my opinion, because it doesn't have the extra words in it!

English
Both are OK, but they have slightly different meanings. #1 - This implies that he would be watching the game soon (isn't watching it yet) and is really looking forward to it. #2 - This means that he is excited about the game while he's watching it. Be sure to put a com...

Please re-read Ms Sue's first and second sentences ... several times if you have to.

English
1 is better than 2 (too wordy!). 3 is correct; 4 is incorrect. I do hear people use the construction in 4, but it's usually a child or teen or someone not well educated. Neither 5 nor 6 is correct. It should be this: He is not as tall as I. (or He is not as tall as I am.)

English
I'd ask this question: What kind of pet do you have?

English
Almost. Remember to include auxiliary verbs: have been are going The auxiliary verbs are tricky when they are included in a contraction, such as We've and we're.

English
This is a compound sentence; each independent clause has its own simple predicate. Divide this into two (what could be two complete sentences). Then tell us what the verb for each clause is ... there will be TWO simple predicates.

Is it the Shadow who is looking for riches (Eldorado)???

English
#1 generally means I approve of what you're doing. It can also mean "I love you." #2 means that "you" makes "I" happy because of actions and expressed love. It might also mean that without "you," the "I" would be unhappy. ...

Unintelligible
To me, this is completely unintelligible. If you just write out the paragraph with the words in the places you need (get rid of all the numbers and spaces), someone will more likely be able to help you.

English
All the variations are fine.

English
I bought this dress at/from a market ... (but not "in") Have you been studying ... Her mum has been talking ... They haven't visited her for two weeks. There's so much to do ... (All the rest are fine. I'm doing this on my phone, so not many details here!)

supply chain
Re b -- How many US workers would lose their jobs if option b is chosen?

English
The sentences without "should" are fine. Adding the word "should" is unneeded since these sentences include subjunctive clauses anyway.

I agree with Steve. It's a childish sentence. But you should never use "of" after "bored" ... even better is to remember that people who say they are bored are usually pretty boring themselves!!
