An Exercise in Capitalization
Note: Expect students to put some periods where these authors
have exclamation points, and vice versa. What is exclaimed is a matter
for the writer to decide. You may want to have the students discuss why
they put the punctuation marks where they did. In this exercise, students
will be marking the different complements ("PA," "PN," "IO," and "DO")
as simply complements ("C").
Here [#1], Rover [DirA], here [#1] ! That is my hat (PN)! | *You*
2. In will be interesting to see how many students include "off" as part of the verb. Expect some to do so, and some not. This problem is addressed in KISS Level 2.1.5 - Phrasal Verbs
(Preposition? Adverb? Or Part of the Verb?). Note that "off" here means "away."
3. "To run off" is a verbal (infinitive) phrase that functions as an adverb. Some students will probably underline it twice, but tell them not to worry about that. They will learn the different when they get to KISS Level 2.1.6 - Distinguishing Finite Verbs from Verbals.
4. "You bad dog!" can be considered a phrase that functions as an interjection, but it can also be viewed as a sentence by itself--"You *are* a bad dog!"
