    some new questions

    Hi, I have got an assignment and there are some questions for which I need your help and guidance.Questions are following
    Q1.Draw an activity for the students at secondary level through which they can derive the rules for using ‘some’ and ‘any’ with nouns.
    Q2.What is difference between Prescriptive Grammar and Descriptive Grammar?give at least ten examples( sentences)from English language which are considered right in descriptive grammar but wrong in prescriptive grammar.
    Q3.Read the following sentences carefully:
    a. Thrown from the car,Bob saw her lying on the ground.
    b. She was fighting with her brother.
    What is wrong with these sentences?Does traditional grammar support such sentences? would you use structure cards for teaching the concept of chain and choice to your class?Also draw these cards on the answer sheet.
    i shall be grateful if you reply.thank you
    from shinypinklily

    Re: some new questions

    I have comments on only two things. Re:
    Thrown from the car, Bob saw her lying on the ground.
    It is impossible to make sense of that sentence. (Who was thrown from the car?)

    The other one (sentence b) is perfectly fine.
