Lesson 269

Parts of the Sentence - Adverb Clauses

 

Adverb clauses like adjective clauses can give variety to your sentences. Sometimes we find adverb clauses that have left some words out. They are called reduced adverb clauses. Example: While (she was) speaking to the timid student, the teacher spoke slowly.

 

Instructions: Rewrite the following reduced adverb clauses adding the missing words.

 

1. After hearing the terrible noise, they ran for their lives.

 

2. The customer paid for his groceries when passing through the check out stand.

 

3. Allen is only happy while participating in an argument.

 

4. Before leaving for the hike, the boy scouts were warned about snakes.

 

5. Until watering the lawn in the morning, he didn't see the dandelions in it.
