    Re: appositive phrases

    Abegail,
    Here's one example of apposition:

    "Abegail, a student of English grammar, tried to get me to do her homework for her."

    The phrase "a student of English grammar" is in apposition with "Abegail."

    (Items in apposition refer to the same person or thing.)
