    plz help fast

    You only indicated that one word is italicized. One word cannot be a phrase or clause.

    Are these words italicized? confused by the sign?

    What do you think it is?

    Hint: If it's a clause, it should have a subject and a verb.

  • english -

    its confused and sign

  • english -

    so it can be one of these:
    past participial phrase
    noun clause
    adverb clause
    nominative absolute
    ellipitical clause
    but its not a clause

  • English -

    You're right -- it's not a clause.

    What kind of phrase is it?

  • english -

    past participle ?

  • english -

    Right.

  • english -

    thank you and the last one is

    We hit a snag while rowing to shore.
    and the italicized phrase is (while rowing )

  • english -

    would this be a clause

  • English -

    If it's a clause, what are the subject and verb?

  • english -

    past participle phrase thank you
