Title: FOA


1
FOA
  • In a paragraph discuss what you think civil
    rights means to you.

2
Appositives and Appositive Phrases
  • Essential Question
  • How do you identify and use appositives and
    appositive phrases?

3
Definition
  • An appositive is
  • A noun or pronoun placed after another noun or
    pronoun to
  • identify,
  • rename, or
  • explain the preceding word.

4
Examples of appositives
  • The painter Pablo Picasso lived in Spain.
  • I want to visit Spains famous museum, The Prado.
  • The painting Guernica impressed my father

5
Appositive Phrase
  • An appositive phrase is
  • A noun or pronoun with modifiers (describing
    words).
  • It stands next to a noun or pronoun and adds
    information or details.

6
Examples of appositive phrases
  • Willa Cather, an American novelist, wrote My
    Antonia.
  • Lisbon, a thriving port in Portugal, has often
    been the scene of espionage.
  • The shopping centera network of cars, shops, and
    people--provides many jobs.

7
Appositives and appositive phrases CAN be compound
  • The two settings, a city in England and a city in
    Russia, are contrasted in the book.

8
An appositive is NOT a prepositional phrase
  • The boy with the broken arm is my brother.
  • The boy, the one with the broken arm, is my
    brother.

9
Commas and appositives
  • When this word or group of words interrupts a
    sentence, it needs commas on both sides.
  • Riley, my dog, is gregarious
  • EXCEPTION If it is one word, name, or title, NO
    COMMA IS NEEDED!
  • My dog Riley is gregarious.

10
Commas and appositives
  • Commas are put around the appositive phrase
    because it is NOT necessary to the meaning of the
    sentence.
  • This means if you take the appositive phrase out
    of the sentence, it still makes sense.
  • EXAMPLE
  • Riley, my gregarious dog, will jump up on his
    hind legs when he meets people.

11
Examples from Tuck Everlasting
  • Winnie, the only child of the house, never went
    there
  • It was Mae Tuck with her other
  • son, Jesses older brother.

12
Examples from Tuck Everlasting
  • Then she stood and took from the washstand beside
    the bed, a little square-shaped object, a music
    box painted with roses and lilies of the valley.

13
Examples from Tuck Everlasting
  • On the left stood the first house, a square and
    solid cottage with a touch-me-not appearance,
    surrounded by grass cut painfully to the quick
    and enclosed by a capable iron fence

14
Examples from Tuck Everlasting
  • The last stains of sunset had melted away, and
    the twilight died, too, as he stood there, though
    its remnants clung reluctantly to everything that
    was pale in color pebbles, the dusty road, the
    figure of the man himself turning them blue and
    blurry.

15
Examples from Tuck Everlasting
  • But in another part of her head, the dark part
    where her oldest fears were housed, she knew
    there was another sort of reason for staying at
    home she was afraid to go away alone..

16
Examples from Tuck Everlasting
  • And at once, when she saw the two of them, Jesse
    with his foot on the pile of pebbles and Winnie
    on her knees beside him, she seemed to understand.

17
Part I Identify and underline the appositive
found in each sentence.
  • 1. The monkey, a nimble animal, is often found in
    the jungle.
  • 2. Dave Lewis, a teacher at Lawson, works with
    many aspiring musicians.
  • 3. Before you trash BoBo, your last childhood
    stuffed animal, consider saving it.
  • 4. The coast of Africa, one of the world's
    largest continents, is a prosperous trading
    region.
  • 5. Mr. Sonntag hired two new teachers, Mr. Davies
    and Ms. Parker.
  • 6. The fastest animal, the peregrine falcon, can
    travel more than 100 miles per hour at certain
    times.
  • 7. Our family visited The Smithsonian
    Institution, a vast network of galleries in
    Washington, D.C.
  • 8. Our neighbor and his daughters, Parvi and
    Sonya, take walks every evening.
