8. According to the information presented in it the sentence “John never used to smoke a lot” is….

a) declarative

A declarative sentence is a sentence that simply announces something to a listener or group of listeners. The declarative sentence is one of four main sentence types in the English language: the other three are imperative, interrogative, and exclamative sentences. Considering these basic types of sentences can help beginners understand more about how English speakers use the language to communicate.

В повествовательном предложении обычно передается какая-либо информация, утверждаются определенные факты:
My parents bought a new car two years ago. — Мои родители купили новую машину два года назад.

У нас в предложении есть слово never, так что могут возникнуть сомнения, что это негативное предложение, но я нашла примеры повествовательных предложений с отрицанием: I don’t like soccer. — Neither do I. = Я не люблю футбол. — Я тоже., Она не ходила в кино вчера. — Они тоже. Я никогда не был в Японии.

42. The sentence “He wants you to talk to him first” is…

a) a transition case from simple to composite sentences

The notions of simple sentence and composite sentence are well defined and distinctly opposed to each other, but still some transitional elements can be found between them. Such sentences are termed transitional or semi-composite. The following syntactical phenomena can be considered transitional cases:

1) sentences with homogeneous parts (sometimes also termed «contracted sentences»);

2) sentences with a dependent appendix;

3) sentences with secondary predication.

In English there are several ways of expressing secondary predication: the complex object (e.g. I saw you take it.) The syntactic function of the group you take (or of its elements) can be considered either a complex object (in this case the group is treated is a single syntactic unit) or an object and an objective predicative. The choice between the two interpretations remains arbitrary. There is no universal approach.


43. Murdstones treated David cruelly.

The underlined word is…

b) an adverbial complement.

Не уверенна, но на второй вариант ответа adverbial extension информации вообще не нашла, так что остался только первый вариант. Вот информация с сайта.

Adverbial complements are adverbs or other adverbial elements in a clause that are required to complete the meaning of the verb.

Like adverbial adjuncts, adverbial complements modify the meaning of the verb by providing additional information. However, unlike adjuncts, which can be removed without losing meaning, adverbial complements must be included because removing them would cause the sentence to be incomplete or fundamentally altered in its meaning. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Adverbial-Complements.htm



13. The underlined word group in the following sentence «The first three prizes were awarded to the winners» is…

a) endocentric;

Блумфилд относит к эндоцентрическим все те словосочетания, в которых одна или любая из составляющих может функционировать в большей структуре так же, как и вся группа. Например, poor John представляет собой эндоцентрическое словосочетание, так как составляющая John может заменить сочетание poor John в более развернутом построении: Poor John ran awayJohn ran away. Сочетание Тот and Mary, согласно Блумфилду, также представляет собой эндоцентрическую структуру, так как любая из составляющих может заменить все словосочетание в большем построении: Тоm and Mary ran awayTom ran away; Mary ran away. To, что при этом глагол в настоящем времени меняет свою форму в единственном числе (ср. Тот and Mary run awayTom runs away; Mary runs away), Блумфилд не считает существенным для выделяемых типов словосочетаний.

14. Direct speech act is characterized by

b) the coincidence of its semantics and pragmatics;

Прямыми называются акты, в которых языковая структура совпадает с выражаемым ей содержанием, косвенными – в которых этого совпадения нет. Несколько упрощая, можно сказать, что значение прямого акта складывается из значения его элементов. Косвенный акт фразеологичен (см. Фразеологизм в Лекции № 2). Его содержание напрямую не выводится из значений компонентов.
