Assignment – Week 4 Clauses

In your writing journal, you will begin to practice building sentences with adjective and adverbial clauses. For this journal entry, discuss some of the advantages of the place where you live. Using the lists associated with each of these types of clauses, write at least three (3) sentences including adjective clauses and three (3) sentences including adverbial clauses. Underline the adjective and adverbial clauses. Consider their function in both as a modifier and an aspect of your writing style.

Adjective Subordinate Clause

  1. The supermarket, which is close to my home is quite convenient.
  2. Winsome who is the President of the neighbourhood watch is very resouceful.
  3. I am happy that the crime rate in the community i live is low.

Adverb Subordinate Clause

  1. Although our neighbourhood is relatively safe we still need to be vigilant.
  2. So that you know what to do if something were to happen, we receive regular safety tips from the police department.
  3. Because it looked as if it might rain, i did not walk to the plaza even though it is close by.

The neighbourhood in which i live is known for being a safe one. Although our neighbourhood is relatively safe we still need to be vigilant. We also boast a very active community neighbourhood watch programme. So that we do not become complacent, we receive regular safety tips from the police department at schedule community meetings.The venue for these meetings are usually held at the newly refurbished community centre. The centre is sometimes rented out for use to host social events, this is a great way for us to raise funds to complete necessary community projects. Although we are close to most of the necessary ammenities, the disadvantage is that the ammenities are also easy accessible to other nearby communities. As such the plaza is usually crawling with activity on weekends, patrons buzzing around like bees descend on the stores and service agencies. For someone who is clauserphobic the sight would be a nightmare !.
