Notes
1. Alternatively, the "hurt" clause can be considered the main clause, and the "sobbed" clause can be explained as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
2. KISS explains this type of clause as an interjection. See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?
3. Grammar books are not usually consistently clear as to whether or not "begin" should be considered a helping verb. Thus, in KISS, students can consider "to fight" as part of the finite verb phrase or they can consider it a verbal (infinitive) that functions as the direct object of "have begun."
