User: what is a participle with complements and modifiers?



Weegy: Participles not linked with a helping verb usually function as adjectives, but can also work as adverbs, as we will see below. The easiest verbals for students to recognize are pre-positioned participles, that is, [ the ones that are in the obvious place for adjectives, immediately before a noun. If you show students a sentence like The struggling students were no match for the challenging test. they can easily recognize that struggling and challenging are both adjectives modifying the nouns they precede. Difficulties arise for them when participles introduce phrases that, as a whole, modify a noun. For instance, Giving his friend Sylvester a hearty slap on the back and slipping him a $100 bill, Tompkins followed Sylvester into the casino, crossing his fingers as he entered. In this straightforward but tricky sentence, giving, slipping, and crossing all begin participial phrases that modify Tompkins. As I mention in another section of this site, the phrases work like snapshots of the man Tompkins: they describe his acts; we see him caught in the act, so to speak, of giving Sylvester a slap on the back, slipping him a "C note," and crossing his (Tompkins') fingers. The only "action" word in the sentence is followed. ]

Combine these ideas into one sentence using an adverb clause. Prepare to go on stage. I will tell you the best time.
Weegy: An adverb clause will meet three requirements: * First, it will contain a subject and verb. * You will also find a subordinate conjunction that keeps the clause from expressing a complete thought. * Finally, [ you will notice that the clause answers one of these three adverb questions: How? When? or Why? Read these examples: Tommy scrubbed the bathroom tile until his arms ached. How did Tommy scrub? Until his arms ached, an adverb clause. Josephine's three cats bolted from the driveway once they saw her car turn the corner. When did the cats bolt? Once they saw her car turn the corner, an adverb clause. After her appointment at the orthodontist, Danielle cooked eggs for dinner because she could easily chew an omelet. Why did Danielle cook eggs? Because she could easily chew an omelet, an adverb clause. ] User: Select the sentence with a clause used as a predicate nominative. The man who came here yesterday was selling magazines. We left the performance early because we were tired. The reason he opened the door was that the princess pointed to it. User: Select the correctly punctuated sentence.
