I cannot find verb in this sentence
I am stumped but I cannot find the verb in the following sentence. Can anyone please help?
"One a penny, two a penny, hot cross bun"
Also, does anyone know the rule(s) to using the adverb "only" in sentences.
Re: I cannot find verb in this sentence
That's a line from a song. You can understand it to mean
One (is sold for) a penny, two (are sold for) a penny, (I'm singing about) hot cross buns.
Songs, like other forms of poetry, don't follow grammatical rules.
Use "only" as close to the thing you want to modify. If you write a few sentences using it, we can take a look at your placement.
