5 Question Tagspreguntas que decimos al final de una oración (afirmativa o negativa) cuando queremos que nuestro interlocutor muestre acuerdo o desacuerdo, o bien para preguntar lo que no sabemos.Para formar la "question tag" utilizamos los verbos auxiliares (be, have, do, will, would, can could, etc…) y a continuación el pronombre personal sujeto.El auxiliar debe concordar con el verbo de la oración principal, es decir, si el verbo está en pasado, el auxiliar irá también en pasado.En oraciones afirmativas, la question tag va en negativa.
6 Question Tags exceptions Con Iam, hacemos la question tag,aren´t I?Cuando en la oración principal usamos palabras negativas como “nothing”, “no one”, “nobody”, “no” “never” “hardly” “scarcely” and “little” la question tag deberá ser afirmativa.Con “somebody” “anybody”, “nobody” “someone” “anyone”, “no-one”“everbody” “anyone”, la question tag llevará el auxiliar en plural y el pronombre sujeto "they", aunque en la oración el verbo esté en singular.Con el imperativo En negativo ponemos la question tag "will you"? Y la orden se convierte en una petición cortés: - Don't be late, will you? No llegues tarde, ¿vale? En afirmativo ponemos la question tag "won't you?", y la orden se convierte en invitación: -Have another piece of cake, won't you? Tómate otro trozo de pastel, ¿no?

9 Do and Make"Do" y "make" son dos verbos que se confunden frecuentemente en inglés. Ambos se pueden traducir como "hacer", pero hay algunas diferencias en su significado. En general, "do" considera más la acción, mientras que con "make" nos referimos más al resultado de la acción.

En este sentido, se utiliza mucho con los pronombres indefinidos como "something", "anything", "nothing", etc.What are you doing today? I'm not doing anything. (¿Qué haces hoy? No hago nada.)He's always doing nice things for his girlfriend. (Siempre hace cosas buenas para su novia.)Are you doing anything important right now? (¿Haces algo importante ahora mismo?)

14 Zero ConditionalWhen we talk about things that are generally or always true.We use: If/When/Unless + present form + present simple or imperative.Note that we are not talking about a specific event but something which is generally true.In the condition clause, we can use a variety of present forms. In the result clause, there can only be the present simple or imperative.Notice that 'unless' means the same as 'if not'.
15 Zero Conditional Examples: Unless he asks you politely, refuse to do any more work on the project.Unless prices are rising, it's not a good investment.Unless you've been there yourself, you don't really understand how fantastic it is.If you visit London, go on the London Eye.If unemployment is rising, people tend to stay in their present jobs.If you've done that, go and have a coffee.When you go on holiday, take plenty of sun cream.

18 if + present simple, ... will + infinitive First ConditionalThe first conditional has the present simple after 'if', then the future simple in the other clause:if + present simple, ... will + infinitiveIt's used to talk about things which might happen in the future. Of course, we can't know what will happen in the future, but this describes possible things, which could easily come true.If it rains, I won't go to the park.If I study today, I'll go to the party tonight.If I have enough money, I'll buy some new shoes.She'll be late if the train is delayed.She'll miss the bus if she doesn't leave soon.If I see her, I'll tell her.Sometimes, we use shall, can, or may instead of will, for example: If you are good today, you can watch TV tonight.

21 if + past simple, ...would + infinitive Second ConditionalThe second conditional uses the past simple after if, then 'would' and the infinitive:if + past simple, ...would + infinitiveWe can use 'were' instead of 'was' with 'I' and 'he/she/it'.An imaginary result in a situation that does not existFirst, we can use it to talk about things in the future that are probably not going to be true.

Is that clear? Have a look at the examples:If I had his number, I would call him. (I don't have his number now, so it's impossible for me to call him).If I were you, I wouldn't go out with that man.If I were president, I would put you in Jail

If I had time, I would come to your party.If they hadn't trained hard, they wouldn't have won.As you can see, they refer to the same time: the present, the future or the past.If we mix the sentences, we get mixed conditionals.

But my father lost his keys and therefore we have to wait until he finds them.If I had installed an anti-virus, my computer wouldn't be so slow now.

36 SuffixesSuffix is a group of letters placed at the end of a word to make a new word. A suffix can make a new word in one of two ways:inflectional (grammatical): for example, changing singular to plural (dog > dogs), or changing present tense to past tense (walk > walked). In this case, the basic meaning of the word does not change.derivational (the new word has a new meaning, "derived" from the original word): for example, teach > teacher or care > careful
37 Inflectional suffixes Inflectional suffixes do not change the meaning of the original word. So in "Every day I walk to school" and "Yesterday I walked to school", the words walk and walked have the same basic meaning. In "I have one car" and "I have two cars", the basic meaning of the words car and cars is exactly the same. In these cases, the suffix is added simply for grammatical "correctness". Look at these examples:suffixgrammatical changeexample original wordexample suffixed word-sPluralDogDogs-enPlural (irregular)OxOxen3rd person singular presentLikeHe likes-edPast tensePast participleWorkHe workedHe has workedPast participle (irregular)EatHe has eaten-ingContinuous/progressiveSleepHe is sleeping-erComparativeBigBigger-estSuperlativeThe biggest
38 Derivational suffixes With derivational suffixes, the new word has a new meaning, and is usually a different part of speech. But the new meaning is related to the old meaning - it is "derived" from the old meaning.We can add more than one suffix, as in this example:derive (verb) + tion = derivation (noun) + al = derivational (adjective)

40 SuffixesSuffixes Spelling Rules RULE: 1 - When a word ends with a consonant and the suffix begins with a consonant, simply add the consonant with no spelling changes. enjoyment = enjoy + ment commitment = commit + ment doubtful = doubt + ful RULE: 2 - For most one syllable words ending in a single consonant you need to double the last letter when you add a suffix. run + ing = running sun + y = sunny fun + y = funny *** When the word ends with more than one consonant, the last letter is NOT doubled. jump + ing = jumping sing + ing = singing
41 SuffixesRULE: 3 - For words with more than one syllable and end with the letter"L" you must double the "L" when adding suffixes. travel + ing = travelling cancel + ed = cancelled RULE: 4 - For words stressed on the last syllable and ending with a singleconsonant, you need to double the last letter. prefer + ing = preferring begin + er = beginner *** For words where the stress isn't on the last syllable, then you do NOT need to double the last letter. benefit + ed = benefited offer + ing = offering
42 Suffixes***OTHER SPELLING RULES- "Y" to "I" and the silent "E" When a word ends in a consonant plus "Y" then the "Y" is changed to "I" when you add the suffix. When adding the suffix 'ing' to a word ending in "Y" -- you keep the "Y." lonely + ness = loneliness happy + ness = happiness copy + ing = copying Silent "E" words end with a consonant and an "E." Words like love, like, and hope...you drop the "E" when you add the suffix. noise + y = noisy simple + y = simply
43 PrefixesA prefix is placed at the beginning of a word to modify or change its meaning.
