18 Important Note on Identifying Sentence Types: There are several different types of sentences. The three types which we will see most often this quarter are: 1. the Transitive Active Sentence (TAS), 2. the Intransitive Active Sentence (IAS), and 3. the Linking Sentence (LS). The TAS is governed by a transitive verb, a verb which transfers action from a subject to a direct object. The English word order for a TAS is Subject + Verb 6 Direct Object. The boy + hit 6 the desk. The IAS is governed by an intransitive verb, a verb which does not transfer action to a direct object. The English word order for a IAS is Subject + Verb I + think. The LS is governed by a linking verb, a form of the verb “to be” which links a subject with a predicate. The English word order for a LS is Subject/Predicate Verb Predicate/Subject A = B The rose is red. or Red is the rose. Another pattern I am a teacher. or A teacher am I. Note how a linking verb can link either a noun with an adjective (called a predicate adjective) or a noun with another noun (called a predicate noun).

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
