Lesson 268

Parts of the Sentence - Adverb Clauses

 

Adverb clauses like adjective clauses can give variety to your sentences. Sometimes we find adverb clauses that have left some words out. They are called reduced adverb clauses. Example: While (she was) speaking to the timid student, the teacher spoke slowly.

 

Instructions: Reduce the adverb clauses in these sentences.

 

1. While he was watching the geese, he saw the fox.

 

2. Richard got a thorn in his finger when he was pruning the roses.

 

3. The cat meowed loudly after it searched for a way into the house.

 

4. Although the man feared being ostracized, he continued helping everyone.

 

5. Will measured the board again before he made his final cut.
