Noun clauses can be : direct object, subject, predicate nominative, object of a preposition?
can you please give me examples?
ok so direct object is when the the verb answers the question what
e.g. i love eating in my free time.
(love what? love eating…so eating is the noun…this is a gerund i suppose u know when a noun ends wth ing its a gerund)
predicate nominative is when the noun comes after any linking verb (is,was..)
e.g. Her worst habit is following people without them knowing about it.
again the noun is a gerund here and is following cz it follows the linking verb is.
subject: anything or anyone that performs the action(verb)
e.g. i gave the present
in this sentence i is the subject
object of a prepositon.
im sure u know what a preposition is ( something which links to things together)
so the noun in the following sentence would be removing even though its again a gerund! i hope u dont get annoyed but all the sentences which are coming to ma mind have gerunds in them right now! Lol
e.g. they ran without removing their shoes
(without removing) is the prepositional phrase
without is the preposition
i know i wasnt verrry clear but i tried my level best. n i recently finished giving exams on these topics!!!!!
