Many adverbs of frequency, degree, certainty, etc. Adverbs that provide a connection with previous information such as next, then, however , and those that provide the context such as time or place for a sentence, are typically placed at the start of the sentence: Yesterday we went on a shopping expedition.
If such a verb also has an object, then the particle may precede or follow the object, although it will normally follow the object if the object is a pronoun pick the pen up or pick up the pen, but pick it up. Phrases[ edit ] An adverb phrase is a phrase that acts as an adverb within a sentence. For example: very sleepily; all too suddenly; oddly enough; perhaps shockingly for us. Another very common type of adverb phrase is the prepositional phrase , which consists of a preposition and its object: in the pool; after two years; for the sake of harmony.
Prepositions[ edit ] Prepositions form a closed word class,  although there are also certain phrases that serve as prepositions, such as in front of.
A single preposition may have a variety of meanings, often including temporal, spatial and abstract. Many words that are prepositions can also serve as adverbs. Examples of common English prepositions including phrasal instances are of, in, on, over, under, to, from, with, in front of, behind, opposite, by, before, after, during, through, in spite of or despite, between, among, etc. A preposition is usually used with a noun phrase as its complement. A preposition together with its complement is called a prepositional phrase.
A prepositional phrase can be used as a complement or post-modifier of a noun in a noun phrase, as in the man in the car, the start of the fight; as a complement of a verb or adjective, as in deal with the problem, proud of oneself; or generally as an adverb phrase see above. English allows the use of "stranded" prepositions. This can occur in interrogative and relative clauses , where the interrogative or relative pronoun that is the preposition's complement is moved to the start fronted , leaving the preposition in place.
This kind of structure is avoided in some kinds of formal English. For example: What are you talking about? Possible alternative version: About what are you talking? The song that you were listening to Notice that in the second example the relative pronoun that could be omitted.
Stranded prepositions can also arise in passive voice constructions and other uses of passive past participial phrases , where the complement in a prepositional phrase can become zero in the same way that a verb's direct object would: it was looked at; I will be operated on; get your teeth seen to. The same can happen in certain uses of infinitive phrases: he is nice to talk to; this is the page to make copies of.
Conjunctions[ edit ] Conjunctions express a variety of logical relations between items, phrases, clauses and sentences. These can be used in many grammatical contexts to link two or more items of equal grammatical status,  for example: Noun phrases combined into a longer noun phrase, such as John, Eric, and Jill, the red coat or the blue one. When and is used, the resulting noun phrase is plural. A determiner does not need to be repeated with the individual elements: the cat, the dog, and the mouse and the cat, dog, and mouse are both correct.
The same applies to other modifiers. The word but can be used here in the sense of "except": nobody but you. Adjective or adverb phrases combined into a longer adjective or adverb phrase: tired but happy, over the fields and far away.
Verbs or verb phrases combined as in he washed, peeled, and diced the turnips verbs conjoined, object shared ; he washed the turnips, peeled them, and diced them full verb phrases, including objects, conjoined. Other equivalent items linked, such as prefixes linked in pre- and post-test counselling,  numerals as in two or three buildings, etc. Clauses or sentences linked, as in We came, but they wouldn't let us in. They wouldn't let us in, nor would they explain what we had done wrong.
There are also correlative conjunctions , where as well as the basic conjunction, an additional element appears before the first of the items being linked. Subordinating conjunctions make relations between clauses, making the clause in which they appear into a subordinate clause.
A subordinating conjunction generally comes at the very start of its clause, although many of them can be preceded by qualifying adverbs, as in probably because The conjunction that can be omitted after certain verbs, as in she told us that she was ready.
Case[ edit ] Although English has largely lost its case system, personal pronouns still have three morphological cases that are simplified forms of the nominative , objective and genitive cases :  The nominative case subjective pronouns such as I, he, she, we, they, who, whoever , used for the subject of a finite verb and sometimes for the complement of a copula. The oblique case object pronouns such as me, him, her, us, it, us, them, whom, whomever , used for the direct or indirect object of a verb, for the object of a preposition, for an absolute disjunct, and sometimes for the complement of a copula.
Most English personal pronouns have five forms: the nominative and oblique case forms, the possessive case , which has both a determiner form such as my, our and a distinct independent form such as mine, ours with two exceptions: the third person singular masculine and the third person singular neuter it, which use the same form for both determiner and independent [his car, it is his] , and a distinct reflexive or intensive form such as myself, ourselves.
The interrogative personal pronoun who exhibits the greatest diversity of forms within the modern English pronoun system, having definite nominative, oblique, and genitive forms who, whom, whose and equivalently coordinating indefinite forms whoever, whomever, and whosever. Forms such as I, he, and we are used for the subject "I kicked the ball" , whereas forms such as me, him and us are used for the object "John kicked me".
In addition, a few English pronouns have distinct nominative also called subjective and oblique or objective forms; that is, they decline to reflect their relationship to a verb or preposition , or case. Consider the difference between he subjective and him objective , as in "He saw it" and "It saw him"; similarly, consider who , which is subjective, and the objective whom. Further, these pronouns and a few others have distinct possessive forms, such as his and whose.
By contrast, nouns have no distinct nominative and objective forms, the two being merged into a single plain case.
For example, chair does not change form between "the chair is here" subject and "I saw the chair" direct object. Possession is shown by the clitic -'s attached to a possessive noun phrase , rather than by declension of the noun itself. For example, the clause I go is negated with the appearance of the auxiliary do, as I do not go see do-support. When the affirmative already uses auxiliary verbs I am going , no other auxiliary verbs are added to negate the clause I am not going.
Until the period of early Modern English, negation was effected without additional auxiliary verbs: I go not. Most combinations of auxiliary verbs etc. Also the uncontracted negated form of can is written as a single word cannot. On inversion of subject and verb such as in questions; see below , the subject may be placed after a contracted negated form: Should he not pay?
Other elements, such as noun phrases, adjectives, adverbs, infinitive and participial phrases, etc. When other negating words such as never, nobody, etc.
Such negating words generally have corresponding negative polarity items ever for never, anybody for nobody, etc. Clause and sentence structure[ edit ] Main article:. And it's Free!!

It can refer to either persons or things, and cannot follow a preposition.
For example, one can say the song that [or which] I listened to yesterday, but the song to which [not to that] I listened yesterday. The relative pronoun that is usually pronounced with a reduced vowel schwa , and hence differently from the demonstrative that see Weak and strong forms in English. If that is not the subject of the relative clause, it can be omitted the song I listened to yesterday.
The word what can be used to form a free relative clause — one that has no antecedent and that serves as a complete noun phrase in itself, as in I like what he likes.
The words whatever and whichever can be used similarly, in the role of either pronouns whatever he likes or determiners whatever book he likes. When referring to persons, who ever and whom ever can be used in a similar way but not as determiners. The "logical subject" of the verb then appears as a complement after the verb.
This use of there occurs most commonly with forms of the verb be in existential clauses , to refer to the presence or existence of something. For example: There is a heaven; There are two cups on the table; There have been a lot of problems lately. It can also be used with other verbs: There exist two major variants; There occurred a very strange incident. The dummy subject takes the number singular or plural of the logical subject complement , hence it takes a plural verb if the complement is plural.
In informal English, however, the contraction there's is often used for both singular and plural. It can also appear without a corresponding logical subject, in short sentences and question tags : There wasn't a discussion, was there?
There was. The word there in such sentences has sometimes been analyzed as an adverb , or as a dummy predicate , rather than as a pronoun. Other[ edit ] Other pronouns in English are often identical in form to determiners especially quantifiers , such as many, a little, etc. Sometimes, the pronoun form is different, as with none corresponding to the determiner no , nothing, everyone, somebody, etc.
Many examples are listed as indefinite pronouns. Another indefinite or impersonal pronoun is one with its reflexive form oneself and possessive one's , which is a more formal alternative to generic you.
Most verbs have three or four inflected forms in addition to the base form: a third-person singular present tense form in - e s writes, botches , a present participle and gerund form in -ing writing , a past tense wrote , and — though often identical to the past tense form — a past participle written. Regular verbs have identical past tense and past participle forms in -ed, but there are or so irregular English verbs with different forms see list.
The verb be has the largest number of irregular forms am, is, are in the present tense, was, were in the past tense, been for the past participle. Most of what are often referred to as verb tenses or sometimes aspects in English are formed using auxiliary verbs. The auxiliaries shall and should sometimes replace will and would in the first person. For the uses of these various verb forms, see English verbs and English clause syntax. The basic form of the verb be, write, play is used as the infinitive , although there is also a "to-infinitive" to be, to write, to play used in many syntactical constructions.
There are also infinitives corresponding to other aspects: to have written, to be writing, to have been writing. The second-person imperative is identical to the basic infinitive; other imperative forms may be made with let let us go, or let's go; let them eat cake. A form identical to the infinitive can be used as a present subjunctive in certain contexts: It is important that he follow them or There is also a past subjunctive distinct from the simple past only in the possible use of were instead of was , used in some conditional sentences and similar: if I were or was rich For details see English subjunctive.
The passive voice is formed using the verb be in the appropriate tense or form with the past participle of the verb in question: cars are driven, he was killed, I am being tickled, it is nice to be pampered, etc. The performer of the action may be introduced in a prepositional phrase with by as in they were killed by the invaders. The English modal verbs consist of the core modals can, could, may, might, must, shall, should, will, would, as well as ought to , had better, and in some uses dare and need.
The modals are used with the basic infinitive form of a verb I can swim, he may be killed, we dare not move, need they go? The copula be, along with the modal verbs and the other auxiliaries , form a distinct class, sometimes called " special verbs " or simply "auxiliaries". I could not Apart from those already mentioned, this class may also include used to although the forms did he use to?
It also includes the auxiliary do does, did ; this is used with the basic infinitive of other verbs those not belonging to the "special verbs" class to make their question and negation forms, as well as emphatic forms do I like you? For more details of this, see do-support. Some forms of the copula and auxiliaries often appear as contractions , as in I'm for I am, you'd for you would or you had, and John's for John is.
For detail see English auxiliaries and contractions. Phrases[ edit ] A verb together with its dependents, excluding its subject , may be identified as a verb phrase although this concept is not acknowledged in all theories of grammar .
A verb phrase headed by a finite verb may also be called a predicate. The dependents may be objects , complements, and modifiers adverbs or adverbial phrases. In English, objects and complements nearly always come after the verb; a direct object precedes other complements such as prepositional phrases, but if there is an indirect object as well, expressed without a preposition, then that precedes the direct object: give me the book, but give the book to me.
Certain verb—modifier combinations, particularly when they have independent meaning such as take on and get up , are known as " phrasal verbs ". For details of possible patterns, see English clause syntax.
See the Non-finite clauses section of that article for verb phrases headed by non-finite verb forms, such as infinitives and participles. Adjectives[ edit ] English adjectives , as with other word classes, cannot in general be identified as such by their form,  although many of them are formed from nouns or other words by the addition of a suffix, such as -al habitual , -ful blissful , -ic atomic , -ish impish, youngish , -ous hazardous , etc. Adjectives may be used attributively , as part of a noun phrase nearly always preceding the noun they modify; for exceptions see postpositive adjective , as in the big house, or predicatively , as in the house is big.
Certain adjectives are restricted to one or other use; for example, drunken is attributive a drunken sailor , while drunk is usually predicative the sailor was drunk. Comparison[ edit ] Many adjectives have comparative and superlative forms in -er and -est,  such as faster and fastest from the positive form fast.
Spelling rules which maintain pronunciation apply to suffixing adjectives just as they do for similar treatment of regular past tense formation ; these cover consonant doubling as in bigger and biggest, from big and the change of y to i after consonants as in happier and happiest, from happy. The adjectives good and bad have the irregular forms better, best and worse, worst; also far becomes farther, farthest or further, furthest.
The adjective old for which the regular older and oldest are usual also has the irregular forms elder and eldest, these generally being restricted to use in comparing siblings and in certain independent uses.
