Sentence Construction

Concept: Write Sentences Using Doing & Describing Words

Definition

  • A sentence is a group of words that give a complete meaning when arranged in a proper way.
  • A sentence can have both describing words and doing words at the same time.

Examples:

Boy

In the first sentence above, “yellow” is the describing word and “driving” is the doing word.

In the second sentence, “pink” is the describing word and “dances” is the doing word.

How to Make a Sentence Using Describing and Doing Words?

A sentence can be made by using a describing word before the noun. The role of the describing word would be to add detail to the word.

Ravi is wearing a black shirt and riding a red bike.

Boy

Describing Word Describing Word

Here, the describing words ‘black’ and ‘red’ are talking about the noun’s ‘shirt’ and ‘bike’, respectively.

Now, a doing word talks about the action performed by the doer of the action. In the sentence given, there are two doing words that takes place at the same time.

Ravi is wearing a black shirt and riding a red bike.

Boy

Doing Word Doing Word

In some sentences, there is just one doing word that explains the actions done in the sentence.

Examples:

Boy

Exceptions

Most of the time, describing words are placed after the word it modifies, but if the verbs such as ‘be’, ‘seem’, ‘get’, ‘become’ or ‘appear’ are used in the sentence, then the adjective is used after those verbs.

Examples:

You seem to be tired.

Here ‘tired’ is the adjective used after ‘be’.

Boy
