Next up in the grammar series: parts of a clause!
In this video, we go over subjects and predicates and practice identifying the parts of clauses that include a variety of features, including direct and indirect objects, adverbials, participial phrases, and complements (though we didn’t have time to talk much about complements – check out some of the links below for more information). We mainly look at declarative sentences, but we also look at how imperative and interrogative sentences affect the pattern.
In the next couple of videos, we’ll look at different types of clauses and how we can combine clauses to make a variety of sentence types.
