Adjectives : Types and Functions

What is an Adjective ?
An Adjective is a world that is used to modify qualify or add more meaning to a noun or a pronoun.

TYPES OF ADJECTIVES
  1. Demonstrative adjectives
  2. Qualitative adjectivea
  3. Quantitative adjectives
  4. Interrogative adjectives
  5. Possesive adjectives´╗┐

An adjective is a word we use to describe a noun. It gives the reader detailed information about the noun.
With adjectives, the writer informs the reader. For example, if you write the noun “dog” it gives the reader only generic information. When you add adjectives, you give the reader details that can be used to create a picture of the dog in their mind. The general idea of a dog can be transformed into the more specific idea of a fluffy, young labrador dog or a muddy old cattle dog.
– In the same manner, the girl can be transformed into the delighted birthday girl.
– The man can be transformed into the exhausted elderly man.
– The cake can be transformed into the lilac wedding cake.
– The light can be transformed into the glowing star light.
– The baby can be transformed into the giggling chubby baby.
– The sandwich can be transformed into the moldy club sandwich.

Tips on Becoming A Part Enterprenuer

Do what you enjoy

Always consider businesses that relate to things you enjoy. You’re looking to escape the so called rat race and you are more likely to feel passionate about a venture that you have a personal interest in. Having said that, when a hobby becomes work it can lose some of its appeal so be sure that you will be able to keep up your enthusiasm when it comes to spending a lot more time involved in your particular pursuit.

Draw up a business plan

Yes, even though are only going part time it doesn’t mean this step is one that should be overlooked. A business plan helps keep you on track.

Actions

It’s all well and good having a business plan in place but the proof, as with any venture, is in the pudding. Get things moving. This will build your confidence and give you an idea of the realities of running your own show.

Hiccups

Be prepared for there to be hiccups. It is rare that a business launches without a few hurdles to overcome. Try to learn from these and use the experience to better equip yourself to avoid them in future.

CONTENT IS KING

Content is king. If you have been in the Internet marketing
scene for any period of time you would have heard this saying
day in and day out. Every Internet marketing manual has this
as it’s mantra and rightly so. One of the biggest problems
people have when blogging has nothing to do with the lack of
traffic coming to their site. It’s a symptom of something more
sinister. Bad content. Even worse then poorly written original
content is content that is not original at all. This is the death
bell for all blogs that want to be taken seriously. You HAVE to
have unique content. It is the lifeblood of blogging. Every other
blog is lacking in original content, you have to be different. Pay
someone to write it if you have to.

Create Content That Gives People A Plan Of Action
Want to get people to not only read your blog but follow your
word blindly and do your bidding for you? I kid you not, people
will fall over themselves to do what you say if you do this. You
just have to tell them what to do.
This is the greatest idea, especially if you are reselling an
affiliate program via your blog. Every one of your posts you
write should give people an action that could be taken by the
reader.

Simple Present Tense

Simple Present Tense is used  to express actions that are done always , regularly often daily and always…..
They are used to say things that we do always daily regularly e t c…
Examples:

  1.  Olu washes his uniform daily ..
  2. Sade brushes her teeth every night…
  3. We pray to God daily..
  4. Daddy and mummy sleep together every night..

Should I write my story in present or past tense (we won’t talk much about future tense in this article)? A question often asked.
Why not write your story in both tenses, if that’s what it takes! As long as it’s done without confusing the reader. I like to think that authors can zip between tenses freely if they want to establish different times and eras to connect actions, make a point, show growth or connect resulting outcomes.
Example: A writer of his memoir narrating as an adult about actions in the past he is describing in present tense as if the actions were unfolding in real time and seen through his eyes as a teen. I hope this makes sense !
Word tense can get complicated, so I will first explain exactly what kinds of present and past tenses there are…Surprise! There are more than “simple” past and present tenses, remember ? How about present perfect, present progressive and past perfect tenses, etc, etc ?
Following is a list of the 12 major word tenses with examples:
1- Simple Present Tense: John walks
2- Present Progressive Tense: John is walking.
3- Present Perfect Tense: John has walked.
4- Present Perfect Progressive Tense: John has been walking.
5- Simple Past Tense: John walked.
6- Past Progressive Tense: John was walking.
7- Past Perfect Tense: John had walked.
8- Past Perfect Progressive Tense: John had been walking.
9- Simple Future Tense: John will walk or John is going to walk.
10- Future Progressive Tense: John will be walking or John is going to be walking.
11- Future Perfect Tense: John will have walked.
12- Future Perfect Progressive Tense: John will have been working or John is going to have been walking.
Sequence of Tenses
Strictly speaking, in English, only two tenses are marked in the verb alone, present (as in “he sings”) and past (as in “he sang”). Other English language tenses, as many as thirty of them, are marked by other words called auxiliaries.
Understanding the six basic tenses allows one to re-create much of the reality of time in his writing.
The six are:
Simple Present: They walk
Present Perfect: They have walked
Simple Past: They walked
Past Perfect: They had walked
Future: They will walk
Future Perfect: They will have walked
Problems in sequencing tenses usually occur with the perfect tenses, all of which are formed by adding an auxiliary or auxiliaries to the past participle, the third principal part.
ring, rang, rung
walk, walked, walked
The most common auxiliaries are forms of “be,” “can,” “do,” “may,” “must,” “ought,” “shall,” “will,” “has,” “have,” “had,” and they are the forms we shall use in this most basic discussion.
Present Perfect
The present perfect consists of a past participle (the third principal part) with “has” or “have.” It designates action which began in the past but which continues into the present or the effect of which still continues.
1. Mr Bolujo taught for ten years. (simple past)
2.  Mr Bolujo has taught for ten years. (present perfect)
The implication in (1) is that Betty has retired; in (2), that she is still teaching.
1. John did his homework. He can go to the movies.
2. If John has done his homework, he can go to the movies.
Infinitives, too, have perfect tense forms when combined with “have,” and sometimes problems arise when infinitives are used with verbs such as “hope,” “plan,” “expect,” and “intend,” all of which usually point to the future (I wanted to go to the movie. Janet meant to see the doctor.) The perfect tense sets up a sequence by marking the action which began and usually was completed before the action in the main verb.
1. I am happy to have participated in this campaign!
2. John had hoped to have won the trophy.
Thus the action of the main verb points back in time; the action of the perfect infinitive has been completed.
Past Perfect
The past perfect tense designates action in the past just as simple past does, but the action of the past perfect is action completed in the past before another action.
1. John raised vegetables and later sold them. (past)
2. John sold vegetables that he had raised. (past perfect)
The vegetables were raised before they were sold.
1. Renee washed the car when George arrived (simple past)
2. Renee had washed the car when George arrived. (past perfect)
In (1), she waited until George arrived and then washed the car. In (2), she had already finished washing the car by the time he arrived.
In sentences expressing condition and result, the past perfect tense is used in the part that states the condition.
1. If I had done my exercises, I would have passed the test.
2. I think George would have been elected if he hadn’t sounded so pompous.
Future Perfect Tense
The future perfect tense designates action that will have been completed at a specified time in the future.
1. Saturday I will finish my housework. (simple future)
2. By Saturday noon, I will have finished my housework. (future perfect)
Review
1. Anthony Olusegun saves thirty dollars. (present)
2. Anthony Olusegun saved thirty dollars. (past)
3.  Anthony Olusegun will save thirty dollars. (future)
4. Anthony Olusegun has saved thirty dollars. (present perfect)
5. Judy had saved thirty dollars by the end of last month. (past perfect)
6. Judy will have saved thirty dollars by the end of this month. (future perfect)

HIV and STD

HIV, human immunodeficiency virus, has become a very big health threat over the last few decades. While it was almost unheard of before the 1980’s, it now is estimated to affect over 1,185,000 people in the United States alone. Anyone who is sexually active has the potential to have been exposed to this disease, as have people who have come into contact with infected blood or other bodily fluids. Unfortunately, when not diagnosed early and properly treated, HIV can quickly transform into full blown AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), which is very difficult to treat and can quickly lead to death.
Because of the serious nature of HIV and the fact that an infected person can unknowingly transmit the disease to many other people, it is essential to get tested for HIV if you think there is any chance at all that you may be infected. By getting tested and finding out your HIV status early, you can get early treatment if necessary and avoid infecting future sexual partners or other intimate contacts.
If you know you have been exposed to HIV or are just unsure about whether you are at risk of having this virus, you are highly encouraged to make an immediate appointment for testing. However, since the nature of this disease is highly personal and you may not want many people to know that you are being tested or what the results are, it is important to use a trusted place for the testing that guarantees to keep your personal information confidential. Utilize a STD testing service that is specially dedicated to helping people get confidential testing for all types of STDs and counseling to help with any positive results.
Using a confidential STD testing service is an easy and fast way to get the answers you need about whether you may have HIV or any other STD. Since there are usually no early symptoms of HIV infection, getting tested is the only way to know whether you have become infected. When you decide to get tested, you can get receive a same day appointment to get your test and find out results within three days. This eliminates the weeks of waiting that may result if you try to get tested through other avenues, such as your doctor’s office, as well as provides a fully confidential way of getting tested so that you never have to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable when talking about highly personal issues.
To get an HIV test is very easy. All you need to do is call the toll free number and you can set up an appointment the same day. Testing sites are conveniently located throughout the country and are staffed by caring and highly trained individuals. These people will perform the test as well as answer any questions you may have about your risk, possible diagnoses, or the testing process. Then, within three days, you will be able to get the results of your HIV test. These results will be delivered by a counselor who can assist you in dealing with emotional and practical considerations if the test comes back positive.
