POEM, POEM, POEM...

We have been given the task by Miss Zu to make a poem about a friend using their names. Each letter must represent the adjectives that describe that person and their characteristics. For me this is something interesting for us to express the poetry by not use a direct word, or in other words, has a hidden meaning. Some people do not like poetry because the words used are very difficult to understand, only the author and only certain people will understand. Youth today, especially us as a students would rather be thought other thing rather than the the subject literature but not all students dislike it. This is a poem that I make after reviewing all the suitable adjective.

ADJECTIVE






Adjective is one of the parts of speech that I learn in BEL 260. The position of adjective is usually before nouns and after linking verbs. It is also about to describe the noun by answering one of these three questions: What kind is it? How many are there? Which one is it? There is some example to help you more understand about this 3 question.


What Kind Is It?
How Many Are There?
Which One Is It?

A friend with a fat wallet will never want for weekend shopping partners.


What kind of friend? One with money to spend!

The students, five freshmen and six sophomores, braved Dr. Ribley's killer calculus exam.

How many students? Eleven!

The most unhealthy item from the cafeteria is the steak sub, which will slime your hands with grease.

Which item from the cafeteria? Certainly not the one that will lower your cholesterol!

PRONOUNS ::::


Today i was learned about pronouns.. Function of pronouns is to replace nouns as the subject of sentences.. There are a few type of pronouns there is a subject pronouns, object pronouns, reflexive pronouns, interrogative pronouns and posessive pronouns.. Each type of this pronouns have to use correctly depends on how the word is used within a sentence.  A pronoun usually refers to something already mentioned in a sentence or piece of text. They are used instead of nouns to prevent repetition of the noun to which they refer.  If you want to know more detail about this part of speech and do some excersice just click at this link 

VERB..

A verb is often defined as a word which show or describe an action or a state. Recognizing the verb is the most important step in understanding the meaning of a sentence. 


Action Verb
State Verb
( run, walk, talk, jump)

Example :
 The dog bit the man, 
*  Nowadays, people prefer to
   communicate via e-mail.

Bit and communicate is the verb and the word which shows the action of the sentence. 

( be, do, have, believe, know )

Example :
 She is a smart girl
 There is a lot of confusion
    concerning the memo

 There is no action but a state of being expressed by the verb is.  The word be is different from other verbs in many ways but can still be thought of as a verb.


There is something very special about verbs in English. Most other words (adjectives, adverbs, prepositions etc) do not change in form (although nouns can have singular and plural forms). But almost all verbs change in form.  This is because of their relationship to time. Some examples of verbs in each tense are in the chart below: 
 
Present
Past
Future
look
looked
will look
move
moved
will move
talk
talked
will talk
