(You do not have to analyze the clauses any further - do not draw trees)


2.) Describe the five verb phrases in bold in terms of tense, aspect, voice and/or modality (not all categories may be relevant for all verb phrases)

 


3.) Give a complete syntactic analysis (i.e. draw a tree) of the noun phrase in brackets in line 5 and the clause in brackets in line 9.



4.) Explain the difference in form and meaning between the

  members of each of the following sentence pairs (i.e. define the
