  1. Here are some really good sites on identifying types of words/phrases/clauses and what purpose they serve in a sentence:

    http://www.chompchomp.com/menu.htm
    Click on TERMS and then choose what you think you need.

    http://www.uottawa.ca/academic/arts/writcent/hypergrammar/grammar.html
    Use the appropriate links in the list at the left to help you.

    http://members.cox.net/lenco1/grammarpractice/
    Again, choose from the list at the left.

    I'll start you off with your first sentence. Then you try some and one of us here will give you feedback.

    1. "that you intend" = relative clause, acting as an adjective, modifying "message"

    Let us know what you think about the others.

    =)

  2. 1. Send the spoken mwssage (that you intend) by using a speaking voice.=adjectibe clause
    2. You may transmit different (messages) with the same words.==adjectibe
    3. Your emotions may affect (how listeners receive your message),==adverb clause
    4. A positive tone (projects) a positive ( image)==verb == noun clause
    5. Audibilty (includes) both the pitch (and) volume of your voice.==verb==prepositional phrase

    6. Rate is the speed at which (you) say your words,.--noun

    7. ( Varying your rate) helps to maintain audience interest.==gerund

    8. (Although this is your first formal presentation,) you have worked hard to ge information.==participial phrase

    9.I am sure (that you will do a great job!)==infinitive phrase

  3. 2. You may transmit different (messages) with the same words.==adjectibe
    Do you mean adjective? This is incorrect.

    3. Your emotions may affect (how listeners receive your message),==adverb clause
    No, it's a noun clause. How is it used in the sentence? If you don't remember basic sentence structure, be sure to go to the Hypergrammar link I gave you above.

    4. A positive tone (projects) a positive ( image)==verb == noun clause
    The word "projects" is a verb, yes, in this sentence. The word "image" is not a clause; be sure to go back and read the definition of a clause.

    5. Audibilty (includes) both the pitch (and) volume of your voice.==verb==prepositional phrase
    The word "includes" is a verb, yes; the word "and" is definitely not any kind of phrase. Go back and read the definitions and parts of speech again.

    6. Rate is the speed at which (you) say your words,.--noun
    The word "you" is not a noun; go back and read about the parts of speech again.

    7. ( Varying your rate) helps to maintain audience interest.==gerund
    A gerund phrase, yes! ("Varying" is the actual gerund.) Good! And it's serving as the subject of the sentence.

    8. (Although this is your first formal presentation,) you have worked hard to ge information.==participial phrase
    Not a participal phrase, no. There are no participles in there nor is is a phrase. Go back and re-read about clauses and phrases again.

    9.I am sure (that you will do a great job!)==infinitive phrase
    Not an infinitive phrase, no. Infinitives are the "to..." form of a verb: to walk, to sing, to do, etc. Go back and read about phrases and clauses.

    Re-post whenever you're ready.

    =)
