Example text

When the subject is acted upon the verb is said to be in the passive voice. Verbs in the passive voice have no objects because the subject, being acted upon, is itself in the place of an object. Those forms of the verb which tell whether the time of the action is past, present, or future, are called tenses. They are six, viz. Present, I print (am printing) the book. Past or imperfect, I printed the book. Future, I shall print the book. Perfect, or present perfect, I have printed the book. Pluperfect or past perfect, I had printed the book before you wrote.

Interjections An interjection is a word or sound expressing emotion only such as a shout, a groan, a hiss, a sob, or the like, such as Oh, alas, hush. General Notes The position of words in a sentence is often very important. Misplacement will frequently cause ambiguities and absurdities which punctuation will not remove. What does the phrase "I only saw him" mean?

Adjectives of one syllable usually take the short form but not invariably. The exceptions, however, are more common in poetry than in prose. When any question rises it is usually safer to use the long form of comparison in the case of two-syllable adjectives and to use the short form in the case of one-syllable adjectives. The proper use of the long form is one of those niceties of diction which come only with careful observation and with training of the ear and of the literary sense. The word most should never be used, as it often is, in the place of almost.
