3. List and describe at least three major points you think the original author was making for his audience in the passage.
From the point of view of syntax the text includes a lot of long and complicated sentences. It tells that the narrator is well-educated person. All these language means reveal the author’s manner, his style of writing. He renders his feeling and thoughts such way and therefore reaches his desired effect.
From the above explanations and examples, it has been proven that the IC analysis is beneficial to the study of the three syntactic relations in that it can clearly divide sentences into hierarchical structures.
Annotating a text with your thoughts about the authors arguments or summaries in your own words will help you understand the text, and may be useful if you need to return to it later.
Clarissa flips through her exam, stopping on the pages where Melissa had drawn her trees. “These are some of the most complex sentences English has to offer. Look, this first one includes an antecedent deletion clause that we didn’t even cover and you wrote it out perfectly.”
The first aspect that will be discussed is verbs, as the poem contains 29 sentences; 17 of which start with a verb. Verbs are classified into two categories; transitive and intransitive verbs. Transitive are the verbs used with a direct object while intransitive are those used
Stylistic texture as part of the implicit characterization process is established as a characteristic of the literary text. First, the reader/audience is faced with the question of the way individual sentences of a speech relate to one another. Whether they are connected in a strictly logical way, whether they form a more associative series, they always emphasize the structure of a character’s level of awareness. All significant deviations from the normal frequencies in the areas of syntactic and lexical selection and combination can also serve to delineate a character: the frequency of certain sentence types (such as statements or questions), the predominance of active or passive forms, the use of parallelisms and antitheses, an abstract or
I will base my analysis on a given corpus of examples in which a varied number of cases is provided and I will attempt to make an analysis of the different cases that are in the corpus. Some of these examples are quite clear. However, some other examples prove seem to be problematic to classify, analyse or even identify adverbs, adverbials and adjective ending -ly.
As seen in (1), (2), and (3), each of the sentences has a distinct word order patterns. For more explanation, in (1), the nominal sentence has a subject-verb-object or (SVO) constituent word order,

the corpus. This practice led to a high level of coding disagreement in the initial stage of coding procedure. Nevertheless, it was still possible to find some common linguistic features that could reliably signal a salient communicative purpose of a text segment. A summary of ambiguous move identifications related to lexicogrammatical features are presented later in this section.
II. Lexical PhrasesLexical phrases are headed by a lexical item (as opposed to functional item). Some
