6 Summary of Week 7

You have now been through the basic rules of English sentence structure and are now in no danger of sounding like Yoda. There has been a lot of new information about the structure of English this week, and it’s best to think about the different levels of structure that you’ve come across as building blocks. You already knew that we could add morphemes together to make words, but we can also add words together to make phrases.

In the next (and final) week, you’ll learn that phrases come together to make clauses, and clauses can be added together to make sentences. You’ll also focus on how we use sentences to ask questions, tell people what to do, and other useful things and you’ll consider some creative uses of language in English and other languages.
