  47. Sentence Writing Emphasis, Ellipsis and Inversion Write through Applying Grammar Rules Write through Correcting Mistakes Write through Translating Write through Describing a Picture Assignments

  48. Emphasis, Ellipsis and Inversion Emphasis:If we want to focus attention on certain information in a sentence, we can use an emphatic structure. The most frequently-used structures of emphasis include It-clause, what-clause and do or did foremphasizing an action. Ellipsis:Ellipsis is the omission of one or more words that are understood in the context. But the sentence or utterance should be grammatically correct. Inversion:In statements, it is usual for the verb to follow the subject. Sometimes, however, this word order is reversed. We refer to this as inversion.

  49. Write through Applying Grammar Rules Leave out the words that can be omitted in the following sentences. • The students in Class One are having English lessons and the students in Class Two are having Chinese lessons. • 2. I thank you for your help. The students in Class One are having English lessons and those in Class Two Chinese. Thank you for your help.
