A Comprehensive Lesson on Word Stress


What Is Word Stress?

In English, the individual sounds of a word (i.e. syllables—which we’ll discuss in just a moment) aren’t pronounced with the same weight. One syllable receives more emphasis than the others.

For example, there are three syllables in the word “beautiful” /BEAU-ti-ful/ and the word stress falls on the first one /BEAU/. (Please note that in this lesson, I’ll demonstrate the stress in a word by capitalizing all the letters that make up the syllable.)

Lesson Notes on Transitive and Intransitive Verbs

Definition

English verbs are split into two major categories depending on how they function in a sentence: transitive and intransitive. Transitive verbs take one or more objects in a sentence, while intransitive verbs take no objects in a sentence.

Distinguishing between the two Transitive Verbs

Put simply, a transitive verb describes an action that is happening to something or someone, which is known as the verb’s direct object. For instance, in the sentence “I am reading a book,” book is the direct object, which the action reading is happening to.

Concord, its rules and usages.

 


Concord

Concord in the use of English language means agreement between the subject and the verb or agreement

between a verb and other elements of clause structure.

In the use of concord in English language, there are many rules governing the topic.

So let's analyse the rules one by one.

Rule 1

Subject and verb concord

When the subject in a sentence is singular, the verb should also be singular.

For example,

She (singular subject) goes (singular verb), not: She go ( plural verb). Also, when the subject is plural,

the verb should also be plural.

The bitter truths about life

   Life ain't confusion neither is it an abode of doom as devil/your status quo positions it to you in its pseudo-mirror... 

The fact that you're sad,  rejected,  abused,  disdained... today doesn't implies misfortune... Remember,  some folks know you better than you do...you doubt that?...

The moment the trials and ordeals become tough,  know that comfort is near... 

You need to watch your actions because they can metamorphose into habits; your habits grow to become your indelible character... watch!... the character can grow wing and eventually become your destiny... 

Great men of old studied time as a course in the university of daunting life... 

Remember,  this life has no part two... Fervent prayer,  industry and discipline really work... 

But grace takes care of it all !

The hardest lesson I learnt with tears in the classroom of life has been 'WAITING'... waiting....

Elephant and the Proud Rat

Many years ago, there lived in the community of animals, Elephant and Rat. The Elephant was the biggest and the most respected animal. He lived in big mansion and in luxury. Every animal regarded him. Meanwhile, there was a town close to the animals' community. The town is occupied by great men of valour; they're rich and subtle. No animal has ever visited the town except Elephant. This is because of a long suspended bridge between the animals' community and the rich town. The tiny legs of the animals didn't enable them cross to the other side of the bridge that's built with spaces in between the mesh of it's tied woods. One day, Rat summoned courage; he went to meet the Elephant. He pleaded with him to carry him on his back to cross the bridge to the other side. At first, the great Elephant was angry and later felt something fishy; he knew how proud and supercilious the Rat was. The Elephant later succumbed and agreed to help him cross to the other side of the bridge...

What lessons have you learned in life?

                

 Don't always assume that everyone should offer you help. If they truly do, great! 

If they don't, still respect their reasons... 

Learn from every situation and circumstance that the vicissitudes of life push at you. 

Your prayers are answered... just that God fix the answers to some page of your life where it shows reflection of His apt plan for you... 

Remember... there abound everywhere, people that have interest in listening to your stories... they're really ready to empathize... 

Be careful... not all of them would offer you help... they only listen to the stories covered from the pages of your pain just to have their pastime.

Learn to keep quiet...

Subject-Verb Agreement

 

Because countable nouns can be either singular or plural, it is very important to use the correct subject-verb agreement when they are functioning as the subject of a clause.

Subject-verb agreement refers to using certain conjugations of verbs for singular subjects and using other conjugations for plural subjects. This happens most noticeably with the verb to be, which becomes is or was with singular subject nouns and are or were with plural subjects.

For example:

• “My brother is back from college.” (singular present simple tense)

Some Great Lessons on Nouns

 

Nouns: Definition

Nouns are words that indicate a person, place, or thing.

In a sentence, nouns can function as the subject or the object of a verb or
preposition. Nouns can also follow linking verbs to rename or re-identify the
subject of a sentence or clause; these are known as predicate nouns.

The Subject

The subject in a sentence or clause is the person or thing doing, performing, or controlling the action of the verb. For example:
• “The dog chased its tail.” (The noun dog is performing the action of the verb
chase.)
• “Mary reads a book every week.” (The proper noun Mary is performing the action of the verb read.)

Objects

Grammatical objects have three grammatical roles: the direct object of a verb, the indirect object of a verb, or the object of a preposition.
Direct objects
Direct objects are what receive the action of the verb in a sentence or clause.
For example:
• “The dog chased its tail.” (The noun tail is receiving the action of the verb
chase.)
• “Mary reads a book every week.” (The noun book is receiving the action of the verb read.)
Indirect objects
An indirect object is the person or thing who receives the direct object of the verb. For instance:
• “Please pass Jeremy the salt.” (The proper noun Jeremy is receiving the direct object salt, which receives the action of the verb pass.)
• “I sent the company an application for the job.” (The noun company is receiving the direct object application, which receives the action of the verb sent).
