PRONUNCIATION

STRESS AND INTONATION PRACTICE

Remember that stress is the force or loudness with which a part of a word is pronounced. Many words of two syllables come from one-syllable words. For example, the word ‘singer’ comes from the word

‘sing’ and the word ‘enlarge’ comes from the word ‘large’. In these two-syllable words, the stress is on the syllable of the original word. In the examples below, O and/or capital letters can be used to show the stressed syllable and o the unstressed syllable.

Here are some more examples:

Nouns and adjectives (Oo) Verbs (oO)

Boy – BOYhood

Own – disOWN

Star – STARdom

Take – reTAKE

friend – FRIENDship

miss – dismiss

Most two-syllable nouns and adjectives have stress on the first syllable, even if they are not formed from an original one-syllable word. For example, ‘pastor’ is not formed from the original word ‘past’, but it still has the stress pattern Oo.

GRAMMAR

A verb is an action word or a doing word. There are three types of verbs. They are:

VERBS AND TYPES

  1. ACTION VERBS: action verbs do the action in a sentence. E.g: we rode our bikes to the swimming pool; i wish i knew how to play the guitar.
  2. HELPING VERBS: they help the main verb in a sentence, e.g. Mum might might bake some cookies; many kids were playing soccer during recese
  3. LINKING VERBS: they link the subject to a noun or adjective in a sentence. They help to rename or describe. E.g. My dad is a truck driver; Ben seems unhappy

STRUCTURE

ACTIVE AND PASSIVE VOICE

When X (doer) does something to Y (receiver), there are usually two ways to talk about it: “active voice” and “passive voice”. We use active verbs if we want X to be subject. We use the passive verb if we want Y to be the subject. In the example below in the active construction, “ Osaro” is the doer and it is also the subject of the sentence. However, in passive sentence, “a car” is the receiver of the action, but it is the subject of the sentence.

EXAMPLES:

Active voice Passive voice

Titi sang a song. A song was sung by Titi.

The pupil kicked the ball. The ball was kicked by the pupil.

Did Musa write this letter? Was this letter written by Musa?

POEM

Out there

Out there is a cry of anguish and of pain.

Out there someone’s suffering for someone else’s blame. Out there, there is someone who’s lost all sense of hope. Waiting for some kind of help without which he can’t cope. Out there lies a semblance of a once healthy being

Who’ll die a slow and painful death unless he gets some seeing. But out there stands a person who cares for animals, true.

Yes, someone who can make a change. That person could be you! By Kenneth Cassar

WHO WILL FINANCE MY EDUCATION NOW?

BASIC 6 LESSON PLAN FOR FIRST TERM – ENGLISH LANGUAGE

Elizabeth Fasoro is the 17-year-old daughter of the late Mrs Iyabo Deborah Fasoro. Her mother was the policewoman who was cut down on active duty during the bank robbery in Ikere Ekiti, Ekiti State on 25 November. Elizabeth says she still finds it hard

to believe that her mum is no more. The young girl is currently in Senior Secondary School 3 at Ansar-ud-deen Grammar School, Ikere Ekiti. ‘Mum was the best thing in my life. She was a very caring and understanding woman, who played the role of both father and mother to

me,’ she said.

‘I just came back from school that day about 4 pm when I learned that robbers had invaded the bank and the police station. Knowing that she could be in danger as a policewoman, I prayed for my mum and then went on to do the domestic chores.

‘After a while, my boss at the tailoring shop where I learn tailoring after school hours came to announce to us in our house that robbers had killed two police officers, a man and a woman.

‘I quickly ran to the station. It was there that I got to know that my mum was the policewoman that was killed. ‘My mum had just lost her elder sister a few days before she was shot dead. She had discussed arrangements of the burial with me and even told me about her plans to settle in Ekiti State. She had promised to give me my school fees the day she was killed. But now, she can’t do that. I don’t know who to turn to for help now.

‘My ambition is to become a journalist. I’m appealing to the government to please intervene on the payment of my late mum’s entitlement from the police force and also to do something for me and my elder brother Tope Fasoro, who is just in his first year of study at the Ikere College of Education, Ikere Ekiti.

‘Since the sad incident, everyone has been in shock. The family has particularly monitored my movements because they know that I might do something bad to myself because I never imagined that my mum would die so young. She was very determined to sponsor me and my brother in school so that we wouldn’t have problems in future. Now there is no one we can turn to. I am appealing to the government to please sponsor our education.’ (Adapted from The Sun, 11 December 2014)

PREPOSITION MEANING

Prepositions-of-Movement.jpg

SPEECH

ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY- DEBATE

As you have already learned, a debate is a form of argument that is meant to be spoken. The purpose of a debate is to convince your listeners to agree with your own point of view. A debate has two sides. You either argue for or you argue against the topic. For example, in the topic, ‘Children’s rights and responsibilities should be enforced’, the side supporting the topic should argue for it, while the opposing side argues that ‘children’s rights and responsibilities should not be enforced’. To convince your listeners to your own point of view, you must give adequate facts and details to support your opinion.

Let us briefly review the rules for debates as follows:

  1. First a debater takes a side. Then a coin is tossed to decide who speaks first.
  2. The pupils debating must present the speech within the stipulated time. Those supporting the chief speaker speak only for a short time after the chief speaker has delivered his/her speech.
  3. The speaker must speak either for or against the motion. Do not speak on both sides of the argument.
  4. Once it is time for you to stop, the timekeeper will ring the bell. Make sure you stop to avoid being disqualified or penalised.
  5. The judges will decide the group or persons that win at the end of the debate. EVALUATION: Pupils are evaluated thus:
    1. What is an instruction?
    2. Give three examples of instruction
    3. State five rules of debate
    4. What are prepositions?
    5. Give five examples of preposition.

SPEECH WORK

DIRECT AND INDIRECT SPEECH

When a speech contains the exact words of a speaker, we call it direct speech. When the speech is reported by someone in his own words, it is called reported speech. In reported speech, the present tense changes to the past tense.

Example: ‘It is late’, he said. DIRECT SPEECH He said that it was late. INDIRECT SPEECH

Makinde said, ‘I am going home.’ DIRECT SPEECH Makinde said that he was going home. INDIRECT SPEECH

When we report things that happen regularly, the verbs may not change. Examples:

1 The teacher says, ‘The sun rises in the east.’ The teacher said that the sun rises in the east. 2 The girl says, ‘I sell bread every day.’ The girl said that she sells bread everyday

GRAMMAR

CONJUNCTIONS

A conjunction is a word which joins two words, phrases, clauses, or sentences together to complete their meaning. There are three major kinds of conjunctions: coordinating, subordinating, and correlative.

Coordinating conjunctions This conjunction is used to join two words, statements or clauses of equal status together. These conjunctions include: and, or, but .

Subordinating conjunctions This is a conjunction that is used to join two unequal statements, clauses, or phrases together. One parts depends on the other for its full meaning. Examples of subordinating conjunctions are: before, after, since, because, when, although, though, if, who, which.

Correlative conjunctions This conjunction is used in pairs. Examples are: either … or, both …. and, neither … nor, not only … but also, whether … or.
