  • 1. PES/XII/129/Transformation of Sentences Part I A PUNJAB EDUSAT SOCIETY PRODUCTION Revised by Baljeet Brar(pls. translate green portion into Punjabi) SUBJECT - ENGLISH CLASS - XII MODULE - TRANSFORMATION OF SENTENCES PART II TRANSFORMATION OF SENTENCES ANCHOR Good morning students! How are you all feeling today? Toady we have to continue our class on the topic TRANSFORMATION OF SENTENCES. I hope all of you remember what we learned in the previous class. If yes then very good and if no then there will be recapitulation of what we have learned in the previous class. But before that let us see our learning objectives. LEARNING OBJECTIVES In the following class students are going to 1. Have recapitulation of previous class. 2. They will be able to define compound sentences. 3. They would know what complex sentence means? 4. They would be able to identify both the types in sentences. 5. They would be able to give difference between the three types of sentences. ANCHOR Now we can begin our class. Let us hear one story. VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN STORY THREE FRIENDS Once there were three friends called simple sentence, compound sentence and complex sentence. All three of them were true friends of each other. They used to live
  • 2. together, eat together, and play together. Everything was done in tandem with each other. Three of them worked in the court of the king, ENGLISH GRAMMAR. They were sincere and dedicated courtiers. They always used to finish their work on time. The king also loved them and appreciated them for their work. Once, an Italian professor came to the English court. The king wants his best man to talk and deal with the professor. After lot of thinking the king decided that his three best men will deal with the professor. The professor wanted to check the ability of English Court. He was welcomed with a large heart. No stones were left unturned for his hospitality. The professor was very happy. He started meeting different courtiers of the court. He met Mr. noun, Mr. adjective etc. later in the afternoon he met three best men of the king. The professor had heard about these three men that they always work in tandem with each other. So he decided to test them. The professor called all three of them together. He asked all three to introduce themselves. Mr. Sentence said, “I am called an independent clause, contains a subject and a verb, and expresses a complete thought.” Mr. Compound said, “I contain two independent clauses joined by a coordinator.” Mr. Complex said, “I always have an independent clause joined by one or more dependent clauses.” The professor was happy to listen to this introduction. Then he said to Mr. sentence that you are an ordinary part of English Grammar, so I will not waste my time on you. Rather I would like to talk more about compound and complex sentence. They are quite important and different too. This annoyed all three of them. Mr. Compound and Complex got furious and said to the professor, “see Mr. Professor, we do not believe in this concept of ordinary or extraordinary. and for your information Mr. Sentence is not just ordinary, he holds the most crucial position in our court. He is actually the base of our court. If he would not have been there then I and Mr. Compound would not have been formed. After all at the end we too are sentences only, just having different names.” The professor was stunned to see this kind of friendship. He appreciated all three of them and was full of respect for them. He told the king that these three are actually the best men and best friends too. The king rewarded his three men and had applause for them in the court too. Three of them were very happy to receive this honour and promised each other to be together forever. ANCHOR Well students how was the story. Wasn’t it interesting? SUPER What was the purpose of narrating this story?
  • 3. ANCHOR Well this story not only introduced all three types of sentences but it also told you that all three are equally important and all three of them had their own purpose and function in English grammar. In the previous class we have learned few things let us recall them once before we go further. VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN RECAPITULATION We have learned 1. Transformation of sentences means changing of one type of sentence into another type.i.e.Identifying a simple sentence and then changing it into a compound sentence or to a complex sentence or vice-versa etc. 2. Sentence is a group of words that makes sense. 3. Group of words which makes sense but not complete sense, is called a phrase. 4. Group pf words which forms a part of a sentence, and contains a subject and a predicate of its own , is called a clause. 5. Sentence connector Is a word used to connect words or groups of words 6. A simple sentence is a sentence having one subject and one predicate, either or both of which may be compound. ANCHOR Now I think we can continue further. Well today we have to begin with COMPOUND sentences. Let us get back to our forest scene. (MM :SHOW A FOREST AND ONE MAN SEARCHING FOR SOMEONE.) MAN: well Mr. Sentence had told me those Mr. Compound lives somewhere nearby only. Where is he? Who is that standing there? Man: hello, sir. May I know your name? A bear; well hello I am Mr. Compound. Man; oh hello sir, I had come to meet you only. Mr. Sentence has sent me to you. Bear; well have a seat. How can I help you? Man; Mr. Compound I want to know everything about you and Mr. Complex. Bear; well I will be grateful to you to talk about myself and my friend. But what do you want to know? Man; I want to know who are you? What do you do? Etc. Bear: see I am A compound sentence contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinator. The coordinators are as follows: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. And Mr. Complex is
  • 4. A complex sentence has an independent clause joined by one or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence always has a subordinator such as because, since, after, although, or when or a relative pronoun such as that, who, or which. Man; sir can you give me some more details. Bear ; well sir this was our key function. We hold a good position in English grammar world. Both of us have their own identity. We re just another form of classifying sentences after the category of assertive Negative Interrogative Imperative Exclamatory sentences Man; well thank you sir. I had come to the forest to take interview of few people out of which you were one of them. Thank you for giving your valuable time and support. Bear; oh you are welcome. ANCHOR Students see this conversation even tells you how we should talk to people. Well let us begin our class. You have seen definition of a Compound sentence. VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN DEFINITION A compound sentence contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinator. The coordinators are as follows: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so. FOR EXAMPLE A. I tried to speak Spanish, and my friend tried to speak English. B. Alejandro played football, so Maria went shopping. C. Alejandro played football, for Maria went shopping. ANCHOR In simple sentence there was a single clause Here you have two independent clauses joined by a coordinator. That is why you were taught coordinators in previous class. See In example A, two clauses are SUPER Can we have definition of clause once again. ANCHOR Yes a clause is Group of words which forms a part of a sentence, and contains a subject and a predicate of its own, is called a clause.
  • 5. Ok now in example A two clauses are 1. I tried to speak Spanish 2. my friend tried to speak English And both these two sentences are joined by the word AND. Let us see some more examples first. VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN EXAMPLES 1) Jack fell from the tree. Jack broke his hand. 2) I bought a new computer BUT it wasn’t working 3) Joe waited for the train, but the train was late 4) Mary and Samantha left on the bus before I arrived, so I did not see them at the bus station. 5) The little girl agreed that they should eat more pizza, but her friend disagreed. 6) Jenny hid under the bed, while Lenny hid in the cabinet. 7) Sam went shopping, so Shelby played tennis. 8) I tried to speak Spanish, and my friend tried to speak French. 9) Meg brought the food, so Kate set the table. 10) I went hiking, but my friend went jogging. ANCHOR So did you notice that all the examples had o Two independent clauses o A coordinator o A comma. It is quite clear from the above examples that the independent clauses of a compound sentence may be connected in one of the three ways: 1. By using a comma before a conjunction. 2. By using a semicolon without a conjunction ( as in first example) 3. By using a conjunction without a comma. ALWAYS REMEMBER The point to keep in mind is that the compound sentence must be the equivalent of at least two complete simple sentences. For example A. A good mother today cooks, earns and runs the home selflessly. B. A good mother today cooks and earns, and runs the home selflessly. SUPER Sentence B is compound sentence. ANCHOR Yes true.
  • 6. I hope students you must have understood what a compound sentence is? Let us now do an exercise. VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN EXERCISE 1 Each sentence below is followed by a coordinating conjunction. Add an independent clause that would make sense, keeping in mind the relationship between clauses.

Teacher : Mr. bear have some patience. Just now I have finished talking about your friend Mr. compound. Now it is your turn. Bear: oh well fine. I am sorry to disturb your class. (Mr. bear gives naughty expression , blinks his eye and moves out of the class.) ANCHOR A smart bear. Right students. Well now we will study complex sentences. SUPER DEFINITION A complex sentence has an independent clause joined by one or more dependent clauses. A complex sentence always has a subordinator such as because, since, after, although, or when or a relative pronoun such as that, who, or which. FOR EXAMPLE 1. I will be in school when you arrive. 2. I shall not go to the park if it rains. 3. This is the man whose car was stolen. ANCHOR In simple sentence there was a single clause In compound sentence you have two independent clauses joined by a coordinator. But in complex sentence 1. There is one independent clause and one or more subordinate clauses. 2. A subordinate clause does not express a complete thought. Though it has a subject and a predicate. 3. It should never be punctuated. Like in the above examples if you will notice: VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN
  • 8. INDEPENDENT clause SUBORDINATE clause 1. I will be in school when you arrive. 2. I shall not go to the park if it rains. 3. This is the man whose car was stolen. ANCHOR In these three sentences SUBORDINATE clause has a subject and predicate but individually it seems to be incomplete. VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN 1. when you arrive 2. if it rains. 3. whose car was stolen. ANCHOR When you read these sentences one feels something has happened in relation to this action. I hope it is clear to you now. Let us see some more examples. VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN EXAMPLES 1. When the bell rang the children quickly lined up. 2. When the breeze blew mehul flew his new kite. 3. Although it was cold she went outside in a t-shirt. 4. Snow started to fall after the wind stopped. 5. We will win the match if we play our best. 6.

Mary, singing to herself, skipped down the road. 10. The puppy, tired of walking, started to bark. ANCHOR .the part of a sentence in red is a subordinate clause. It can come anywhere in the sentence.
