Review Lesson 17

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 conjunction “or”, which helps us connect two words, phrases, or clauses which are alternatives to each other. We also learned to use two expressions which contain “or”: The affirmation "either/or", in which the word "either" introduces the first affirmative term and “or” introduces the second affirmative term. “Either/or” serves to grammatically limit one of two alternatives, but not both, and gives no additional choices The negative form is "neither/nor", in which the word "neither" introduces the first negative term and "nor" introduces the second negative term. Remember, these expressions are always constructed together. We learned to grammatically present alternatives and either accept or reject them.

Finally, we learned how to use the adverbs of frequency. These words tell us how often events take place or how often people do things. We introduced the words with approximations of the percentage of time each word represents, but these percentages are just approximations to give an idea of their meaning. The two words at opposite ends of the frequency range are "always" and "never". The adverb "always" means 100% of the time. The adverb "never" means 0% of the time. But, we learned that when these adverbs are used sarcastically or with a great deal of emotion, they in fact do not mean what they seem to mean. We learned that the one-and-two-word adverbs of frequency are usually placed between the subject and the verb or after the verb "to be". The long phrases usually go at the end of the sentence.

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