    Re: need help plezzzzzz

    Do you want to know what the grammatical terms are for the underlined words?

    1. has worked - present perfect simple form (used for duration) - has / have + past participle
    2. verb + preposition + gerund form
    3 modal verbs of deduction in the past - must / might + have + past participle.

    Not really sure if this is wanted you needed to know...

    Thanks Clare for the info, but what I am looking for is something like this

    For eg: " She has to see the doctor"
    Form: Sub+has/have/had + to-infinitive+object

    We really prefer people to make an attempt at their own work. Post what you think and see what others have to say.

    Hi!, Hmm this is wat I think,

    Just dont wanna be sounding like fool. Hence asked for suggestions. Anyway would appreciate if you give your comments on what I've written.
    I've no clue how this works. Could atleast some one tell me the syntax as to how it works. Pleeezzzzzzzz

    1. Susan has worked at the Head office for seven years.

    Object+ has/have + at+ object+ c



    2. She insisted on paying the bill

    Object+ .....not sure

    3.He must have stayed at home/ He might have stayed at home

    Obejct+ Infinite+ home
    4. He's a looser

    Object + infinite

    I come from a software field and I have no clue how this works. Would appreciate if you could atleast give me a thumb rule as to how it works

    Thanks in advance,
    AJ

    A simple sentence is formed by Subject+verb+object

    Clare's post tells you what form the verbs are in the sentences.


    1. Susan/ has worked/at /the Head office/ for seven years.

    Subject+ has/have + at+ object+ c
    Subject+verb+preposition+object+complement



    2. She /insisted/on/paying/ the bill

    Subject+ .....not sure
    Subject+verb+preposition+gerund+object

    3.He /must have stayed /at/ home/ He might have stayed at home

    Subject+ Infinite+ home


    4. He/'s/ a loser

    Subject + infinite

    I come from a software field and I have no clue how this works. Would appreciate if you could atleast give me a thumb rule as to how it works

    Thanks in advance,
    AJ
