Storyboard Text

  • I don't understand why we need phrases and clause in the English language!
  • We need phrases because they add dimension to our sentences; provide detail. We also need clauses because without them we would write in sentence fragments.
  • So why does the English language need semicolons and colons?
  • Because semicolons allow us to join two sentences together without having to actually make two separate sentences. We use colons to separate complete sentences and words that clarify the sentence 
  • Dependent sentence rely on independent sentences because dependent sentences are not complete on it's own while independents are so dependents need to be combined with independents by a subordinating conjunction.  
  • Subordinating conjunctions have the role of transitioning two ideas into one sentence and illustrates purpose of an independent sentence. 
  • What's the role of subordinating conjunctions?
  • When you make your own money, that's when you can buy it!
  • Until you're grown, I will pick your clothes for you.
  • I want this shirt, even though it cost $56!
  • You'll never let me do what I want, even if I'm 20 and out the house!
  • It's so cool though, whereas the other ones are so lame.
  • Using a semicolon combines two independent sentences. Example: The boy didn't get the shit; now he gets to watch a movie. 
  • Colons are used to clarify words in a sentence. Ex: The boy didn't get the shirt so he did the following activities: watched a movie, got a haircut, and ate at his favorite pizza place.
