Review Lesson 20

Hello! We have learned a lot in these last few lessons. Let us take a moment to review what we have learned.

First, we learned about the adjective, adverb and conjunction “only”. When we use the word "only" as an adjective, we learned that it means alone or sole, such as in the sentence “"An only child has no brothers or sisters." When we use the word "only" as an adverb, it has several meanings. It can mean alone or solely such as in the sentence "Only one man works in the office." The adverb "only" can also mean very recently or as recently as a certain time, such as in the sentence "Jennifer called James only last week", which means Jennifer called him as recently as last week. When we use the word "only" as a conjunction, it joins words, phrases, or clauses and it means "except" or "however". We learned about the importance of placement with the word “only”, and how sentences can change meaning depending on its placement in a sentence.

Finally, we learned more about the preposition “of”. Some foods are referred to with special words. For example, we can say "I want some corn.", but corn grows in a specific way; it grows on a cob. When we talk about that corn on the cob, we call it "an ear of corn". Some food might commonly be bought or ordered in a restaurant in a specific way. For example, pork ribs are generally ordered as a "slab of ribs" or a "half slab of ribs". If you go to a bakery, you might want to order bread to take home with you – in that case, you might want to order a "loaf of bread". But you might want only enough bread to eat in the bakery – "a slice of bread", perhaps. Some portions are easy to figure out – "a slice of pie" or a "piece of cake", for example. But others are specific to the food and have to be used in a specific way.

Great! Now that you have reviewed each of these concepts, you have reinforced the knowledge you have learned thus far.
