Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    SECTION 1: PARTS OF SPEECH Determine the parts of speech of the underlined words/phrases in the following paragraph. [1] Early farmers on the [2] Great Plains eked out a rough existence, [3] for there were few towns, stores, or other signs of civilization. [4] Many farm homes were constructed mostly of sod bricks, [5] which were cut [6] out of the prairie. Trees were in short supply on these windswept lands, but the resourceful settler might find a few [7] cottonwoods growing [8] along a creek or river. [9] These [10] could be used to build a frame for the roof, which was then covered [11] lightly with grassy earth. Grass, both [12] on the roof [13] and in the sod, helped to hold the house together. Some of [14] these rugged homes had a door made of timber, but [15] quite often a cowhide [16] was draped across the entrance. [17] Inside was a dirt floor covered with a bearskin [18] or a buffalo hide. As more settlers moved [19] west, bringing furnishings and [20] building materials, farmers eventually abandoned these first, primitive dwellings and built homes that were more conventional.
