I sometimes forget to write down the part of speech with the function of a word or phrase. Also, I sometimes add or leave out words, so I need to learn to read better. Also, I need to work on my punctuation.
I didn't really know that infinitives always start with "to" so I mistaked "become" for an infinitve. And because we haven't really covered infinitives yet, I didn't know I had to mark the function of it, because I didn't know it had functions yet. And I learned that even therre could be a verb helping a linking verb that links to a subject complement, which I didn't have in mine.
I learned that direct objects aren't complete phrases, but just word(s) that are part of the noun family. I keep forgetting to either put down the function or the part of speech - that's sometimes still confusing or hard to remember to me. I also learned that I don't have to write down certain phrases like adverbials (it's just not necessary).
Here, again I forgot to put down functions and parts of speech and I switch them sometimes as in I put the function on the left and the part of speech on the right. I also mistaked the direct object, but I've learned that "pizza" here is the subject of the infinitive. I also forgot to mark the "the". Also, I learned that prepositional phrases can be part of the appositve, so I needed to mark that one as well.
Here again, I thought the direct object could be an entire phrase, so I did that wrong. I forgot some words for example "dinner". I didn't know that a prepositional phrase could be part of the appositive and I didn't know "like" was a preposition. And I mistaked "erupting" for a gerund because it ended with an -ing, but now I know that participles can end with that too and they function as and adjective which is in this sentence the case.
75% Tier: Reflect On The Present
Today I learned that the phrase "word relationships" in the above sentence isn't a direct object, but the subject of the gerund. In the Codify system we don't mark that. We also got introduced to the linking verb which is a verb that connects the subject of a sentence to the complement, the verbials which are the particples, infinitives and the gerunds and the subject complement. A participle is a word formed from a verb and used as an adjective or a noun. An infinitive is the basic form of a verb, without an inflection binding it to a particular subject or tense. A gerund is a verb form which functions as a noun ending in -ing. A subject complement is the adjective, noun, or pronoun that follows a linking verb.
Today I learned more about the differences between the verbials. Especially the participles and gerunds, because they could both end in -ing. what could be very confusing. I also learned more about how to figure out what the functions of infintives could be.
I forgot that the object of the preposition is always part of the noun family. That's why I mistaked "first" as an adverb first. Also, I mistaked "increasingly" for and adjective while it's an adverb because it says something about another adjective and adjectives only say something about nouns, while adverbs can say something about adverbs, verbs and adjectives.
Today we did two sentences (homework 4 & 5) and I learned that "that" has mulitple parts of speech. I mistaked "that" as a pronoun, but because it's not the subject in the sentence and it says something about "class" it makes it an adjective or a determiner, but we don't mark determiner in the Codify system. I also learned today that the direct object isn't an entire phrase, because I marked "courage, determination and the willingness" completely as the direct object, but just the nouns that denote a person or thing that is the recipient of the action of a transitive verb.
