In unit 18, I learned about modals, phrasal verbs, and passive voice. Modals, such as could, may, and should, come before other verbs to change the meaning of the verb. Modals can express ideas such obligation, possobility, permission/prohibition, ability and advice with varying levels of politeness and certainty depending on which modal is used. For example, "He could be sleeping" is much less certain than "he must be sleeping." An idea expressed in active voice does not change in passive voice, the focus just changes from the 'doer' of the action to the object that receives the action. This can be because the agent is unknown, is not supposed to be known, or is unimportant and can therefore even be absent from the statement. The three categories of clauses are independent, which can be a complete sentence, dependent, which is not a complete sentence and needs to be connected to an independent clause, and relative, which is a dependent clause that modifies a noun. Relative clauses give information about the noun that is essential to the meaning of the sentence while a non-defining relative clause gives information that does not effect the meaning of the sentence. Phrasal verbs, either intransitive, transitive, or transitive inseperable, are verbs joined with one or two particles that together create a new meaning for the verb. For example 'to get something' has a different meaning than 'to get over something'. Phrasal verbs can be very confusing for students of English but the can become more natural for the students if they are dropped into uncontrolled conversation regularly and covered often.
