Placer adverbiet (biordet) i parentes i sætningen og begrund den valgte placering. Anvend relevant grammatisk/faglig terminologi. Bemærk at jeg I dette løsningsforslag viser mere end én placeringsmulighed i de tilfælde, hvor der er mere end en mulighed.

1. The two students always1 tried to explain why toast always2 seems always3 to (always) land butter side down. (always) 1) The Grammar §244, stk. A. Det lette adverbialled always kan placeres foran hovedverbet i hovedsætningen (tried) - i så fald lægger det sig til verbet/handlingen ”tried”, dvs. de prøvede hele tiden/igen og igen. 2) Det lette adverbialled always kan alternativt placeres foran hovedverbet i ledsætningen (seems), i så fald lægger det sig til verbet seems, med betydningen ”…hvorfor toast(brød) altid synes at lande med smørsiden nedad”. 3) Det kan også placeres foran to-infinitiven (to land), jf. §244, stk. C, og i så fald lægger det sig til hele infinitiven (to land butter side down), med betydningen ”…hvorfor det virker som om toast(brød) altid lander med smørsiden nedad”. 4) Placering mellem to og infinitiv (”split infinitive”), her mellem infinitivmarkøren to og infinitivformen land, bruges kun i uformelt sprog. The Grammar §244, stk. C.

2. The professor could probably have foreseen the students' reaction. (probably)
Det lette adverbialled placeres normalt foran hovedverbet, men probably skal her placeres efter første hjælpeverbum (could) (og det er i dette tilfælde ikke = foran hovedverbet): Denne regel gælder ved sammensatte verbalformer og det er det samme, der gælder på dansk (Professoren kunne sandsynligvis have forudset…). The Grammar §244, stk. A.

...GLOSSARY OF COMMON GRAMMATICAL AND WRITING TERMS Grammar terminology is useful when we describe and correct problems with writing. Though we’ve tried to de-emphasize terminology and teach through examples throughout this book, sometimes you need a definition. We’ve tried to emphasize areas that are both commonly used and commonly misunderstood, such as the use of modal auxiliaries like can, could, shall, should, etc. Punctuation marks are not included in this list; they have a separate section in this Appendix. “People who are experts in grammar don’t always write well, and many people who write well no longer think consciously about grammar … but when something goes wrong in a sentence, a knowledge of grammar helps in recognizing the problem and provides a language for discussing it.” — H.

...become effective? The current fascination with findings from the research on effectiveness has blinded schools and school systems to the more basic question of goodness. Do higher test scores justify labeling a school “good” if the price for those higher scores has been an increase in the dropout rate? Are higher scores in reading and mathematics “good” if students gain them at the expense of time spent in studying science, social studies, art, or music? Is an average gain of eight points on reading test scores worth the increased allocation of time and resources to direct instruction in reading? Is that gain more desirable than maintaining current achievement levels in reading but devoting a greater proportion of class time to a whole-language approach that emphasizes creative writing or critical thinking?

Copyright © 2010 by Pearson Education, Inc. 92 part 2 Knowledge The research on effective schools and effective teaching does not answer these questions for us. The research is neutral: It does not choose our goals but simply tells us how to accomplish certain things (which may or may not be among our goals). Educators who care about the fate of all children must define goodness before they worry about effectiveness; as supervisors, we must first clarify our own definitions...

Methods and Approaches Most Frequently Preferred by the Language Teachers’ in Learners’ Grammar Achievement

...understand the language grammar. Conversely, if the students need extra motivation, an approach with frequent changes might be proffered. If a learner does not know how to use the language grammar, he will have to rely on lexis, gestures, intonation or other nonverbal features to express his or her meanings. Thus, in order for the communication to exist, people have to know language and its rules, which we call "grammar". Grammar is fundamental to language, without grammar, language does not exist. All languages have grammar, and each language has its own grammar" (Beverly, 2007 as cited in Williams, 2007). People who speak the same language are able to communicate with each other because they all know the grammar system and structure of that language, that is, the meaningful rules of grammar (Beverly, 2007 as cited in Williams, 2007). It has been defined and conceptualized in different ways. Moreover, grammar instruction has taken different status ranging from a central role to staying in the background all through. Related to its status, approaches, methods, and techniques used in teaching grammar have varied so vastly that the categories of form-focused, meaning-based, and integrative can throw only very dim light through the vast spectrum. However, regardless of conceptualization, degree of visibility in the language program, or treatment manner, many authorities would insist that formal grammar teaching should be an important component of......
