CHAPTER IX. SEQUENCE OF SENTENCES. 60. In the following exercises the subject-matter is given, and also the order of topics. Out of a series of elements logically arranged, the pupil is required to construct a continuous narrative. A sequence of sentences should be characterised by unity and variety; unity in the individual sentences, variety over the whole. 61. Unity is that property in a sentence which keeps all its members in connection with, and logically subordinate to, the principal assertion. 62. The rules for preserving the Unity of a sentence are as follow: --(blair) (1. ) The subject should be changed as little as possible in course of the sentence. There is commonly, in every sentence, some person or thing, which is the governing word: this should be continued so, if possible, from the beginning to the end of it. The following sentence violates unity: --After we came to anchor, they put me on shore, where I was welcomed by all my friends, who received me with the greatest kindness. Here, from the repeated shifting of the subject (we, I, they, who), the sense of connection is almost lost. Alter thus, so as to preserve the same subject as principal throughout, and thereby the unity of the sentence: --Having come to an anchor, I was put on shore, where I was welcomed by all my friends, and received with the greatest kindness. Or divide into two, thus: --Having come. . . This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9781236638038
