Sample text

6. In all likelihood they will have left by now. 7. I just get so upset; I just don’t know. 8. All my friends were there and gave me presents. 9. We will obey your orders. 10. They wouldn’t have been staying at grandma’s house because she went to the cabin to prepare for the weekend. 11. You said you’d be coming in on the six o’clock flight. 12. He is taller than I was at that age. 13. I would have written you if I had found the time. 14. They know what I did. 15. He went out and got some bread.

1. answered 2. bet 3. caught 4. dealt 5. enjoying 6. fought 7. got 8. held 9. insist 10. jokes 11. kept 12. lie 13. made 14. nudged 15. obeys 16. put 17. indd 37 4/2/07 6:06:49 PM 38 Chapter 2 18. rode 19. shrank 20. threw 21. up 22. voting 23. worn 24. xerox 25. yoke 26. zero Verb Tenses and Auxiliary Verbs: The Nonmodal Auxiliaries (Do, Be, Have) and the Modal Auxiliaries THE SIMPLE TENSES In a simple tense, the verb phrase consists of just one word—the conjugated verb form (cvf) of the LV. If the verb phrase consists of more than one word—the cvf plus a participle (past or present)—the tense it contains is a compound tense, not a simple tense.

Examples: /pe/ + /z/ = [pe-z], /giv/ + /z/ = [giv-z] /boj/ + /z/ = [boj-z], /brid/ + /z/ = [brid-z] /t b/ + /z/ = [t b-z], /hæŋ/ + /z/ = [hæŋ-z] Rule 3—Devoicing: /z/ is pronounced as [s] If the free morpheme ends in any nonsibilant voiceless phoneme (consonants only) then you pronounce /z/ as [s]. Examples: /tʃif/ + /z/ = [tʃif-s] /smiθ/ + /z/ = [smiθ-s] /hæt/ + /z/ = [hæt-s] In the rules above, we are talking about how to pronounce -(e)s. By examining the ways that -(e)s is pronounced—[əz], [z], and [s]—we can see why it is called morpheme /z/: two of the three allomorphs contain the [z] sound.
