Answer the questions to find the treasure!
OOOh, heres the first question! Phases and Clauses are used in our language, but what do they really do?
Heres Question 4. What is the role of a subordinating conjunctions?
I know, they make up every single sentence in the english language. If it weren't for them english would just be a bunch of words!
They are what make the subject, predicate, and all the other parts of the sentence combine together.
(read after orange part) We need colons to add on a list after a complete sentence has already been completed. Both colons and semicolons let us have one less sentence to write.
(read 2nd) LOOK! Engraved on all the other sides are questions too! Question 2 is on this side.
(Read 1st) It still won't open!
(read orange 3rd) Question 2: We have commas and ending punctuation. Why do we need colons and semicolons too?
We need semicolons to combine two related independent sentences together.
OK heres the next one. How are dependent clauses dependent on independent clauses?
(read last) The other role of a subordinating conjunction is to specify which of two ideas is more important.
(read 2nd) Because there is smooch gold, we are going to be rich!! I can't wait to get home and see how much all of this is worth!
Its role is to keep a good flow while combining two ideas in a sentence.
I think I could also answer question 6 too. I know of examples! Colons: We have three main rules: respect others, respect the building, and have fun. Semicolons: I won my first medal today; it was for sportsmanship!
(read first) Look, the box has opened! There must have been a speaker listening to our answers and we got them all right!
Speaking of getting home, we better start going because the sun is starting to set. Lets load everything up and head back to the other side of the island.
