Hello everyone i was wondering if someone could check this for me and see if it is ok. Thanks all.
Explain the difference between the following pairs of
sentences. Are there any pronunciation differences?
She read the letter which upset me. Indicates that the letter upset the speaker
She read the letter, which upset me. Indicates that the speaker was upset that the letter was read
He keeps his canary in the bathroom.In terms of pronunciation, this sentence would be said as a declarative statement:
He keeps his canary in the bathroom? It is important to know that the question form of this sentence may be used to express surprise, as well as merely asking a question. Context and tone of voice will determine whether it is surprise or a simple question.
They went to Austria and Italy. In terms of pronunciation, this sentence would be said as a declarative statement.
They went to Austria and Italy... This sentence, however, ends with a three-dot ellipsis, which indicates that there is more information forthcoming, or that you are leaving the statement open-ended.
