1 Chapter 7 Verb Usage Emphatic Verb Tense The emphatic tenses of a verb are used to add emphasis. In addition, the emphatic tense can be used with the word not in negative sentences and to form questions. The emphatic forms are used in only two tenses, the present tense and the past tense. Present Emphatic Tense The present emphatic tense is formed by adding the first principle part (present tense) of the main verb to the helping verb do or does. Emphasis: They do leave early. Alan does swim daily. I do wash the dishes every night. Marla does follow the instructions. Negative Sentences: They do not leave early. Alan does not swim daily. I do not wash the dishes every night. Marla does not follow the instructions.

2 212 Questions: Chapter 7 Verb Usage Do they leave early? Does Alan swim daily? Do you wash the dishes every night? Does Marla follow the instructions? Past Emphatic Tense The past emphatic tense is formed by adding the first principle part (present tense) of the main verb to the helping verb did. Emphasis: They did leave early. Alan did swim daily. I did wash the dishes every night. Marla did follow the instructions. Negative Sentences: They did not leave early. Alan did not swim daily. I did not wash the dishes every night. Marla did not follow the instructions.

4 248 Chapter 8 Sentence Structure 8.3 Conjunctive Adverbs A conjunctive adverb is an adverb that can connect independent clauses to form a compound sentence. When joining two independent clauses with a conjunctive adverb, place a semicolon before the conjunctive adverb and a comma after it. He has talent; therefore, he practices the oboe daily. Independent Semicolon, Independent Clause Conjunctive Adverb, Clause and Comma In this example, the conjunctive adverb therefore connects two independent clauses. A semicolon precedes the conjunctive adverb and a comma follows it. More examples: Ella saw the new movie; however, she did not enjoy it. Independent Semicolon, Independent Clause Conjunctive Adverb, Clause and Comma Ana is allergic to flowers; nonetheless, she buys them. Independent Semicolon, Independent Clause Conjunctive Adverb, Clause and Comma

5 Chapter 8 Sentence Structure 249 Some of the most common conjunctive adverbs are listed below. accordingly however nonetheless also indeed otherwise besides instead still consequently likewise subsequently finally meanwhile then furthermore moreover therefore hence nevertheless thus Conjunctive adverbs may move around in the clause in which they appear. A conjunctive adverb that appears at the end of a clause is preceded by a comma and followed by a period. Ella saw the new movie; she did not enjoy it, however. Ana is allergic to flowers; she buys them, nonetheless.

6 250 Chapter 8 Sentence Structure A conjunctive adverb can be used to interrupt a clause. No semicolon is necessary in this instance. Commas both precede and follow it. Either movie, however, is fine with me. The family, meanwhile, had a garage sale. In these examples, the conjunctive adverbs however and meanwhile are each used to interrupt one clause. Some words in the conjunctive adverb list can also be used as simple adverbs. No semicolon is necessary when they are used this way. Just remember, when they are used to join independent clauses they are conjunctive adverbs. Simple Adverb: He was finally able to eat lunch. Conjunctive Adverb: His car broke; finally, he called a mechanic.
