Appositives and Appositive Phrases
2
Definition
  • An appositive is
  • A noun or pronoun placed after another noun or
    pronoun to
  • identify,
  • rename, or
  • explain the preceding word.

3
Examples of appositives
  • "You come back anytime, Jenna, and give it
    another try (Pearson 24).
  • I want to visit Spains famous museum, The Prado.

4
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.

5
Examples of appositive phrases
  • "Our neighbor's house, the massive Tudor, is
    dark and quiet (Pearson 51).
  • Lets go meet the other students, and your
    principal, Dr. Rae (Pearson 67).

6
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.

7
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.

8
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.

9
Identify if the following is an appositive or not
  • 1. "No, Jenna, I promise you his passing was
    quite natural (Pearson 56).
  • 2. "A small girl runs, laughing at nothing at
    all, and is finally stopped by a tall, weathered
    stone wall (Pearson 10).
  • 3.
