Clause A clause is an expression including a subject and a predicate but not constituting a complete sentence. Example: If I do my homework I will get good grades.
Narrative A story or account of events, experiences, or the like, whether true or fictitious. A good example would be the poem “The Ballad of Birmingham”
Interjections Interjections are words that express emotion, such as: Ouch! Wow! Hooray! Example: “Ouch! I stubbed my toe!” said Sally.
Comparative A word used when saying how two things are alike. Example: Stuart is taller than Dakota.
Personification A type of figurative language in which a nonhuman subject is given human characteristics. Example: The sun smiled brightly.
Affixes Parts added to the beginning (prefix) and end (suffix) of a root word to create new words. Example: She rewrote her essay. She was very careful with how she spelled her words. Re is very commonly used as a prefix, and ful is commonly used as a suffix.
Punctuation Marks Marks which are used to separate words, phrases, and clauses. Example: Gabby is going to cook chicken, rice, and potatoes.
Figurative Language Language that is used in writing to produce images in a reader’s mind and to express ideas in fresh, vivid, and imaginative ways. Analogies, metaphors, simile, hyperbole, idioms, imageries, onomatopoeia, personification, and symbolism are all examples in figurative language. Example: This food smells like trash! This sentence is a simile because it uses like.
Onomatopoeia The formation of a word, as cuckoo or boom, by imitation of a sound made by or associated with its referent. Example: A door goes Ding Dong.
