Unit 1

  1. 1. Unit 1 That’s what friends are for!
  2. 2. What kind of guys/girls do you like? <ul><li>I like guys </li></ul><ul><li>I like girls </li></ul><ul><li>who/that aren’t too serious. </li></ul><ul><li>who/that have a good sense of humour. </li></ul>What do who/that refer to? They refer to, or we could say they relate to, the words right before them: “guys” in the first sentence, “girls” in the second sentence. And what kind of word is “who”: noun or pronoun?
  3. 3. We call who (and that )... relative pronouns! <ul><li>I like guys </li></ul><ul><li>I like girls </li></ul><ul><li>who/that aren’t too serious. </li></ul><ul><li>who/that have a sense of humour. </li></ul>clause clause main clause relative pronoun clause
  4. 4. ...what purpose in the clause does the “who/that” serve? ... who/that aren’t too serious. ... who/that have a sense of humour. In the relative pronoun clause... Is it a verb? No. Is it an adjective? No. Is it an object? No.
  5. 5. Is it the subject of the clause? Yes!
  6. 6. THAT was Grammar Focus 1, relative pronouns as subjects. Next, is Grammar Focus 1, relative pronouns as...(watch and learn!)
  7. 7. “ What kind of partner do you prefer ?” <ul><li>I’d prefer a guy/girl </li></ul><ul><li>I’d prefer someone </li></ul><ul><li>(who/that) I can talk to easily. </li></ul><ul><li>(who/that) I have fun with. </li></ul>[This is the same as asking “What kind of guy/girl do you like?” Again, notice the relative pronouns . Again, notice what the relative pronouns refer to. Again, notice the 2 clauses.
  8. 8. What purpose in the clause does the “who/that” serve? verb? adjective? subject? object!!
  9. 9. “ I’d prefer someone who/that I could talk to easily.” What is it the object of? What action will the object (that is, the someone) receive? talk! In this sentence... I’d prefer a guy/girl that I have fun with. <ul><li>Find the relative pronoun clause. </li></ul><ul><li>Decide what the relative pronoun is. </li></ul><ul><li>Decide what it refers/relates to. </li></ul><ul><li>What is the action that relative pronoun will receive? </li></ul><ul><li>Answers on next slide.  </li></ul>
  10. 10. I’d prefer a guy/girl that I have fun with. relative pronoun clause relative pronoun what it refers/relates to what action it’s going to receive (be the object of)
  11. 11. Now do this to practice... <ul><li>Match the information in columns A and B. Then re-write each pair to form one sentence, using who or that . </li></ul><ul><li>A B </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t want to have a partner a. These people are organized and intelligent. </li></ul><ul><li>I’d like to meet people b. This person has good leadership qualities. </li></ul><ul><li>I’d prefer a roommate c. These people have a good sense of humor. </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t like to be with people d. I have nothing in common with this person. </li></ul><ul><li>I want to discuss my problems with friends e. These people are warm and sensitive. </li></ul><ul><li>I’d rather have a boss f. I don’t feel comfortable around these people. </li></ul><ul><li>I’d prefer to have teachers g. This person is quiet and considerate. </li></ul>Example: I don’t want a partner (who/that) [d] I have nothing in common with.
