Title: Making an Appositive Experience!


1
Making an Appositive Experience!
2
What do you notice?
  • Catherine the Great, my Russian grandma, is
    already awake.
  • -- Cari Best, Three Cheers for Catherine the
    Great! (2003)

3
Why use appositives?
  • Sometimes when we write, we want to add new
    information without creating a new sentence.
  • For example

4
  • Clementine is funny.
  • She is in third grade.
  • She lives in New York.

Clementine, a funny third grader, lives in New
York.
5
Lets ask ourselves, what is being renamed??
  • Avon, a rather small snail, read a book every
    day.

6
So what is an appositive??
  • noun or pronoun -- often with modifiers -- set
    beside another noun or pronoun to explain or
    identify it
  • Keith, the boy in rumpled shorts and shirt, did
    not know he was being watched as he entered room
    215 of the Mountain View Inn.

7
Placement of appositives
  • An appositive phrase usually follows the word it
    explains or identifies, but it may also precede
    it.

8
When do we use punctuation?
  • Remember non-essential clauses/phrases?
  • Commas

9
Lets see
  • When there is an essential information contained
    in the appositive, then you dont need commas.

10
Lets Practice!
  • The insect, a large cockroach, is crawling across
    the kitchen table.
  • During the dinner conversation, Clifford, the
    messiest eater at the table, spewed mashed
    potatoes like an erupting volcano.
  • Reliable, Diane's eleven-year-old beagle, chews
    holes in the living room carpeting as if he were
    still a puppy.
