As we begin our adventure deep within the bowels of the English language, we will engage in a little review of the basic words we use. Here are a couple things to tuck away in the back of your mind as we discuss words and phrases.
- Consider our traditional definitions of our parts of speech and how the form definitions differ. Consider each word class by its function within sentences rather than its Latin-based formal definition.
- Embrace the adverbial. Because you can move them around within sentences, they are valuable in developing emphasis and precision.
