Older Beginners Week 21 Parsing--The Wonderful Weaver

Postby dovrar » Thu Apr 04, 2013 9:42 am

I need clarification with parsing conjunctions for week 21 of Older Beginners.

The first sentence,("And oh, how fine and fair were the things which she wove."), has four spaces for words to parse in the student workbook, but only 3 answers in the teacher's book. Should "which" be one of the conjunctions that are parsed? If not, why not?

The last sentence on page 341 of the student book ,("I would free you from your bargain if I could, but that is a thing which no one can do."),also has a relative clause beginning with the word "which" that is not parsed in the teachers book nor is there space for it in the student workbook. Please help.

Thanks so much,
Debbie

'Which' doesn't need to be parsed on this page. The word 'which' never functions as a conjunction. It is functioning as a relative pronoun in these sentences.

Thanks so much! So, the space for a fourth conjunction in the student book is a typo then?

It's extra, certainly.
