Basic Sentence Parts
ELA8C1 The student demonstrates understanding and control of the rules of the English language, realizing that usage involves the appropriate application of conventions and grammar in both written and spoken formats. The student:
f. Analyzes the structure of a sentence (basic sentence parts, noun-adjective-adverb clauses and phrases).
g. Produces final drafts/presentations that demonstrate accurate spelling and the correct use of punctuation and capitalization.
Ex. I will finish all of my homework early because I want to watch the game tonight.
Remember: Adverbs are words that modify verbs, adverbs, and adjectives. They tell when, where, how, why, to what extent.
Ex. The extremely loud thunder made the windows rattle violently.
Ex. The windows rattled violently when the loud thunder roared.
Find a dependent clause that starts with a subordinating conjunction.
Ex. Since it is raining, the water level in the lake will rise.
See whether the clause answers one of the questions: when, where, how, why, to what extent. If it does, then you definitely have an adverb clause.
Since it is raining, the water level in the lake will rise.
Ex. Alice went inside as soon as the rain started falling.
Ex. Jill worries more about thunder storms than James does.
Ex. The kids were scared because there was a tornado warning.
An adverb clause will have a subordinating conjunction and a verb.
(It may have other parts too)
An adverb phrase WILL NEVER HAVE A VERB
