Lesson 79: "SOMEBODY OR SOMETHING DOES SOMETHING"


We are ready to learn our second group of sentence patterns:
"somebody or something does something."

As when we describe somebody or something,
we start with a noun or pronoun,
then add an actor-focus verb (-um-, mag- or ma, for now).


That's it.
That's the basic pattern.

After learning the basic pattern,
you can create your own variations.
Talk about two or more nouns or pronouns instead of just one.
Use two or more verbs.
The sentences you can build are countless.

Recall that for an actor-focus verb,
the subject of the sentence is the doer or actor of the action.

For an object-focus verb,
the subject of the sentence is the receiver or object of the action.

Happy sentence-building!
