  1. Hi! I've been trying to nail down my sentence structure, so that I know when a sentence doesn't work. So I have these two lines that are making me sad: 1- Being the boss made Jeff feel uneasy. [Being the boss]: Gerund phrase serving as subject. Made: Verb. Jeff: Direct Object. Now the problem for me is in [feel uneasy.] I've been searching for like an hour and can't decide what it is: Is it a verb phrase serving as subject complement? A verb phrase serving as an object complement? Is it modifying Jeff or Made? I mean what kind of phrase is it and what is function is it serving? In a sentence like this: I like making people happy. People is a noun serving as object and happy is an adjective serving as object complement. But the fact that [feel uneasy] has a verb makes me think it's something different. Second sentence is: 2- Tom's favorite tactic has been jabbering away to his constituents. Now, the website I've been reading (purdue) said that [Jabbering away to his constituents.] is a gerund phrase, which is no problem, but it also said this: jabbering away to (gerund) his constituents (direct object of action expressed in gerund) And that just makes me confused. Shouldn't it be: Jabbering: Gerund. Away: Adverb modifying Jabbering. [To his constituents]: Adverbial propositional phrase. [His constituents.]: Noun phrase serving as object of the preposition to? Hope you can help me. Thanks for reading.
  2. We have created a series of word search books with handwriting practice pages. There are 12 books in total and every book has a different puzzle, so you can have fun racing your friends to finish it and you cant copy your friend! You can practice handwriting and learn sentence structure and also try to pair the words from the puzzle such as Listen-Hear, Bird-Nest, One-First, Dog-Barks etc. The books are on amazon and can be viewed here, https://www.bklnk.com/B09WPW7C11 Any feedback is much appreciated, thanks
  3. So I'm studying a transcript of a short story told in german on the Auf geht's program, and I'm running into confusion with this specific sentence. So the sentence translates to "One used to take a bus to Neunhaus and from Neunhaus with a train to Nordhorn.", but I don't understand why the second 'noch' (meaning 'still') is in the sentence? Can anyone explain why it's there? Another one is in the phrase "und ich arbeit ja in Nordhorn." What is the 'ja' there for? Is it like a pause, like an 'um' or does it actually mean something in the sentence? One more thing, can someone explain the general usage of 'sich' in sentences? In the transcript, where I'd think she would use 'we', she seems to use 'man sich' instead.
