DETERMINERS

Are the words which identify or specify a noun in some way. They do not describe a noun; they determine it; they point it out. eg-the best boy, that tree and my brother etc.

KINDS OF DETERMINERS

We have the following kinds of determiners;

1. Articles (a, an, the )

2. Demonstratives (this, that, these, those)

3. Possessives (my, your, his, her, et)

4. Distributives (either, neither, each, every)

5. Quantifiers (some, any, much, several, et)

6. Interrogatives (what, which, whose, et)

Articles

We already know that there are three articles in English: a, an, and the. Of these and an are

indefinite articles while the is the definite article.

Uses of article and An:

♦before countables in the singular number:

train, question, An uncle, An umbrella

before a countable in the singular number beginning with a consonant sound:

lecture, one-eyed man (w sound)

Abefore a countable noun in the singular number beginning with vowel sound:

Ainvention, An M.A. (here M is sounded as em; so it begins with vowel sound)

Uses of article The

♦Before a noun whenever we want to make it particular:

the train by which I came, the books I usually read

♦This article can be used with both countable (train, book) and uncountable (mercy, information). And also can be used with the countables both in the singular number

(train) and the plural number (books).

♦With a noun that has already been mentioned: I got watch as a gift.

The watcis beautiful.

♦When it is clear from the situation which people or things we mean:

The principal is taking round of the school.

♦With superlatives:

The brightest star

DEMONSTRATIVES

This and These refer to persons or objects close by. This is used before singular nouns and These before plural nouns:

This book contains all information.

These flowers are for you.

That and Those refer to persons or objects at a distance. That is used before singular nouns and Those before plural nouns:

That car belongs to my father.

Those cars are for sale.

♦This and

♦That can be used before the uncountables also:

This food is not good.

That rose is beautiful.

POSSESSIVES

Possessives can be used both before singular and plural nouns: My book, My books, Your purse, Your purses.

DISTRIBUTIVES

Either

♦It has two meanings

any of the two different persons or things: You can take either bus. (any of the two buses)

♦the both

Restaurants have come up on either sides of the road. (on both the sides)

Neither

♦It means opposite to either or it means not the one nor the other:

Neither candidate deserves our support.

Each, every

Each is used when we think of things separately, one by one: Talk to each child.

Every is used when we think of things as a group. The meaning is without exception:

Every child needs love and protection.

QUANTIFIERS

many and several suggest number, they are used with countables:

many pens, several trees

some and any can be used with both countables and uncountables:

some books, some tea

any shirts, any bread

Much is generally used before the uncountables. It means: a large quantity of.

Much labour, much loss

Many is used before the countables in the plural number. It means a large number of:

Many students, many artists

INTERROGATIVES

♦Determiners that helps to ask questions may be described as interrogatives like what, which, whose, etc.

What train, which basket, whose bats

MODALS

Modals are verbs used to express the mood or attitude of the speaker. They are used to give advice, seek or give permission, make suggestions, make polite requests, give invitations, etc. The most commonly used modals are:

- can, could, may, might, will, would, shall, should, must, ought to, need, dare

Asking for and giving permission:

May, can, and could

Preeti: Mummy, I ‘am awfully hungry. Can I eat these butter biscuits? Mother: Why not? You can eat all of them if you like.

Vinay: Could I use your phone please? Mr Bhushan: Yes of course.

Ritu: MaI go to the medical room madam? I “am feeling giddy.

Madam: Yes please do.

To ask or give permission we use

Can, could or may.

Can is informal; could is very polite; may is formal. All of them are correct. The choice depends on the situation and the speaker’s relation to the listener.

-Asking for things:

Can, could, may, will

To ask for things we normally use can or could

Can I have those pillow covers, please?

Could you pass on the salt, please?

Mais also possible, but being very formal is not preferred. However, we can use will if we like:

Wilyou pass on the salt, please?

Possibility:

May, might

Both may might are used to suggest possibility. But might suggests a lesser possibility than may.

In these sentences, could is also possible:

He could be in his office.

But could suggests still lesser possibility.

Must doesn’t have a past tense form. So we can use must to talk about the present or the future:

We must phone Sathish now {present}

We must phone Sathish tomorrow {future}

Should is not as strong as must or have to. Look at this example:

You should wear a helmet while driving a motor bike.

Ought to conveys the same sense as should. But it carries with it a sense of moral duty. You ought to take care of your old parents.

ACTIVE AND PASSIVE VOICE

→We can begin a sentence either with the subject or object. This fact decides whether a sentence is active or passive.

→In other words, it is possible for us to recognise the active and the passive voice. For example, if a sentence has one of the helping verbs such as am, is, are, was, were, been, being, be and past participles of the verb like eaten, broken, spent, learnt, incented, discovered, it is passive voice.

Voice: Voice is the form of the verb which indicates whether a person or a thing does something or something has been done to a person or a thing.Kinds of voice: there are two kinds of voice, namely:

Active voice

Passive voice

Active Voice: When a verb form shows that the subject has done something, it is known as active voice.

Ex: Madhavi wrote a letter.

- Passive voice: when a verb form shows that something has been done to the subject, it known as passive voice.

Ex: A letter was written by Madhavi.

NOTE: we can turn active voice into passive voice by using some guide lines. It is not much difficult for us to change the voice of the verb.

BASIC RULES

-A sentence can be separated into subject(S), verb(V) and object(O).

egMADHAVI(S) WROTE(V) A LETTER(O)

-The object of the sentence must be turned into subject.

eg: MADHAVI(S) WROTE(V) A LETTER(O)

A LETTER WAS WRITTEN BY MADHAVI

Grammer_2

-The ‘be’ form must be used according to the tense of the verb. eg: A letter ‘was’.

-Past participle of the verb must be used. eg: A letter was written.

-Preposition ‘by’ must be added. eg: A letter was written by

-The subject must be made the object. eg: A letter was written by Madhavi.

ACTIVE AND PASSIVE VOICE TABLE

-An easy way to find out to change the active voice to passive voice and vice versa.

DIRECT AND INDIRECT SPEECH

Akshay said, “I am really sorry for the mistake.” ……….. (1) Akshay said that he was really sorry for the mistake. ………. (2)

-There are two ways of reporting, what some body said.

We produce the exact words of the speaker, as in above. This is called direct speech.

Or, we can express the speech in our own words, as in (2) above. This is called indirect or

reported speech.

Direct speech is set off by inverted commas (“…….”) indirect speech usually begins as: Miru said that ……

Shashank asked Dhanshree if ……… Kiran told Puneet to………….

We do not normally report someone’s words as soon as they are spoken, or at the place where they are spoken. Besides, the reporter is usually different from the actual speaker. So the reported speech differs from the direct speech in certain respects:

Sushmita said, “I ‘am not free today, for somebody is coming to interview me.”

Sushmita said that she was not free that day, for somebody was coming to interview her.

→ Besides dropping inverted commas and using some conjunctions(that, if, etc.), we have to take care of three things while reporting speeches:

Tenses. Most of the times, the reported speech is in the past tense. (she was not free…….

Somebody was coming…….)

Personal pronouns like I, we, you, etc. And possessives like my, our, your, etc. , which change according to the situation. (she was …… , coming to interview her)

Words detonating nearness of time and place are changed. (not free today- not free that day)

Grammer_3

(*But then is very often omitted from the indirect speech)

CHANGING TENSES

REPORTING VERB IN THE PRESENT OR FUTURE TENSE –  THE TENSES IN THE REPORTED SPEECH

UNCHANGED

Prakhar says, ”Arunima is not keepingwell”.

Prakhar says that Arunima  is not keepingwell.

He will say, “Good music makesa good film.”

He will say that good music  makesgood film.

Grammer_4

There are situations in which even if the reporting verb is in the past tense, we leave the tenses in the reported speech unchanged:

♦The reported speech expresses a universal truth or a habitual fact:

Our science teacher said, “The pole star does not change it’s position in the sky.” (The reported speech is a universal truth.)

Our science teacher told us that the pole star does not change its position in the sky.

I said to the tourist, “the Indian summer is usually very hot.” (This reported speech is habitual fact)

I told the tourist that the Indian summer is usually very hot.

♦The reported speech describes a situation which still exists when the speech is reported : The station master said, “All the trains are running late because heavy rains have

damagesome parts of the track.” (The situation continues to be unchanged at the time of reporting.)

The station master said that all the trains are running late because heavy rains have damaged some parts of the track.

♦The reported speech contains two clauses, both in the past:

Neeraj said to me, “Abhilash was unwell so she didn’t go to the school.” Neeraj told me that Abhilash was unwell so she didn’t go to the school.

♦However, in this case it would also be correct to say:

Neeraj told me that Abhilash had been unwell, so she hadn’t gone to the school.

PREPOSITION

♦A preposition is used to show the relationship of a noun or pronoun to another word in the sentence. Here are some common prepositions :

About, above, after, at, behind, below, between, down, during, for, from, in, inside, of, off, on, through, to, under, with.

♦A prepositional phrase is made up of a preposition, its object, and all the words in between. The object of the preposition is the noun or pronoun that follows the preposition.

The pirates buried their treasure under (preposition) a tree (object). I kicked the ball between (preposition) the goalposts (object).

♦ Examples of prepositional phrases –

In the front, of cake, at the park, down the hill, across the street, under the bridge, from my big brother, behind the counter, after school, for breakfast, of the tree, during summer vacation.

♦ Adjective phrases tell what kind or which one.

She lives in a house with a red door. (What kind)

The boy in the backseat was yelling loudly. (Which one)

♦ Adverbial phrases tell how, when, or where.

Tell the story in your own words. (How) Mr Raj jogs in the afternoon(When) She ran behind the house. (Where)
