Student or Learner
could you please help me ?
can a sentence with an appositive sentence be separated into two sentences?
a) i've heard the news that they will get married next year.
b) they will get married next year. i've heard the news.
and also, could you please recommend me some sources about appositive clause on the internet?
Hello I am not a teacher,
But I reckon that your sentence 'I've heard the news that they will get married next year' do not have an apositive clause. I explain, you have a relative pronoun 'that' and certainly you can't say the second part of your sentence is in apposition.
I think it's just two clauses connected with a relative pronoun and no one else.
See you later.
Hello The French,
Parlez vous francais? Merry Christmas. Only the fanatics and the non-Christians are online. What do you think?
'that' is a nominal connective pronoun in the sentence and serves to introduce a nominal clause that renames, further explains the head (news) of the preceding noun phrase. It is definitely an example of reduced apposition.I've heard the news that they will get married next year.

Good afternoon Kondorosi,
I think I am a little 'fanatic', maybe I have time to spend today on the web. Je parle franšais (do not forget š in the word franšais). I try by myself to learn English and to write it all days of the week to improve my level step by step, hit by hit. I'm a Cristian too, but after dinner I am distracting with the lot of quote in this forum. Sure I don't have all the solutions but I try to launch the debate about all questions.
See you later and Merry Christmas.
more detail please..
