Monday’s E.Q.
  • How has the dialogue revealed aspects of the characters so far?
  • Bellringer: Copy the model sentence and study it carefully. What do you notice about the dashes? What information do they express? Now zoom in on other parts of the sentence, such as the use of commas and the end punctuation.

Is it really possible to be so guileless, so innocent, such

a – pardon me for being so blunt – such a simpleton?

- The Governess, Neil Simon

  • The dashes set off a phrase that is an interruption of the main sentence. It’s asking for forgiveness.
  • The commas are used to separate 2 or more adjectives. Commas have a specific purpose. They indicate where a natural pause would normally occur in everyday speech. In this case, there is a pause between so guileless and so innocent. There is also a pause between so innocent and such a simpleton.

Indefinite Pronouns – refer to people, places, or things in a general way.

When an indefinite pronoun is the subject of a sentence, the verb must agree in number with the pronoun.

Ex: Each of the football team mascots is at the game. (singular indefinite pronoun and singular verb.

Ex: Both of my notebooks are in the car. (plural indefinite pronoun with plural verb.

pronouns that can be either singular or plural
Pronouns that can be either singular or plural:
  • Many indefinite pronouns can take a singular or plural verb. The number of the indefinite pronoun is the same as the number of its referent, or the noun to which it refers.

The arrival of the students HAS caused much excitement

the at the ceremony.  CORRECT!!

It can be traced back to the early Jewish battle for freedom of religion, in which a small army of Jews reclaimed their temple. They relit their ceremonial lamps but could find only one tiny flask of oil for fuel. Miraculously, the oil lasted for eight days, which is why Jews celebrate the holiday for eight days.
