Glossing - Lesson 1 Simplify the forms of English verbs
Lesson 1A Write the gloss word as it would appear in the dictionary ◦ Learning = ◦ Thinks = ◦ Happened = Drop the –ing, -s, and –ed endings Irregulars ◦ Has = HAVE ◦ Did = DO ◦ Went = GO ◦ Left = LEAVE ◦ Saw = SEE
Things to remember Present Progressive ◦ When a present tense “to be” verb is followed by an –ing ◦ Currently ongoing I am walking. She is signing. ◦ Change “to be” verb to “NOW” Gerunds ◦ Verb that functions as a noun Running is good for you. ◦ Write the root gloss word followed by ITSELF
Things to remember Sometimes the –ing must be kept for clarification ◦ That dog is mean! ◦ What did that note mean? ◦ Bowl vs. Bowling ◦ Fish vs. Fishing Infinitives ◦ Verbs with “to” connected To hit = To speak = ◦ Drop the “to”
Things to remember Helping verbs ◦ Was and were become PAST Was sewing Were plowing ◦ Have, has, had become FINISH at the end of the sentence Have walked Has eaten Had driven
Examples 1A My dog always watches TV. My mother loved that cat. She stole my book.
Lesson 1B Many verbs are verb phrases Examples: ◦ Hand out = ◦ Make up = ◦ Split up = ◦ Look for = The general rule is to find a single-word synonym and use its simplest form In English, verb phrases can be split up. ◦ You always make stuff up. “make up”
Examples 1B Yesterday, our army gave up! He shows his cow off. She always shows off.
