Sentences

Can you recognise a complete sentence when you see one? A complete sentence has three characteristics: First, it begins with a capital letter.

Prepositions

Prepositions

What is a preposition? A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition. For example:

      The book is on the table.
      The book is beneath the table.
      The book is leaning against the table.

      The book is beside the table.
      She held the book over the table.
      She read the book during class.

Antonyms, Homonyms, Synonyms

Antonyms, homonyms and synonyms

Antonyms are words that mean the opposite of other words. The antonym of big is small, for example. English lets its speakers make their own antonyms just by adding a prefix. The ability to make up one's own words and have them be real words is something truly lovable about English. Example; official becomes unofficial and so on.
Homonyms are words that sound alike but have different meanings. They are a source of entertainment, confusion and inspiration, for example: accept (to receive) and except (excluding); band (a group) and banned (forbidden); gilt (gold-plated) and guilt (did wrong); mail (postal delivery) and male (masculine person).
Synonyms are words that share meanings with other words. There are many reasons why synonyms are great. They make it possible for writers to create a mood with the nuances of their vocabularies. "Walk" is different than "saunter," and "drink" is different than "guzzle." more...
