    In this excerpt from Herman Melville’s short story "The Lightning-Rod Man," which sentences or phrases best support an objective summary of the excerpt?

    Hark! There go all the granite Taconics and Hoosics dashed together like pebbles. By the sound, that must have struck something. An elevation of five feet above the house, will protect twenty feet radius all about the rod. Only twenty dollars, sir—a dollar a foot. Hark!—Dreadful!—Will you order? Will you buy? Shall I put down your name? Think of being a heap of charred offal like a haltered horse burnt in his stall; and all in one flash!"

    "You pretended envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to and from Jupiter Tonans," laughed I; "you mere man who come here to put you and your pipestem between clay and sky, do you think that because you can strike a bit of green light from the Leyden jar, that you can thoroughly avert the supernal bolt? Your rod rusts, or breaks, and where are you? Who has empowered you, you Tetzel, to peddle round your indulgences from divine ordinations? The hairs of our heads are numbered, and the days of our lives. In thunder as in sunshine, I stand at ease in the hands of my God. False negotiator, away! See, the scroll of the storm is rolled back; the house is unharmed; and in the blue heavens I read in the rainbow, that the Deity will not, of purpose, make war on man's earth."

"The pizza" is the subject, "ate" is the predicate, and "the man" is the direct object.

The syntax is okay but the semantics make no sense.

How do I diagram this sentence-The boy yelled "help" and saw a brave dog quickly run to the rescue.


The is article/adjective modifying subject boy. Yelled and saw are verbs in the predicate of this compound sentence; and is the conjunction. "Help" is the direct object of yelled. A brave dog quickly run to the rescue is a gerund. Subject of gerund is dog with a and brave as modifiers. Run is verb of gerund with quickly the adverb modifying. To the rescue is a prepositional phrase. To is the preposition, rescue the object of to and the a modifier. And here I though my 8th grade talents were no longer needed. Why is this listed in the chainsaw catagory?

I need to know the prepositional phrase to a sentence


I would say" At the top of the mountain, it was cold! This phrase will answer the question" Where was it cold? The key word is AT, which is your preposition.
Let me know if it helped!

Examples of simple sentence


The following are simple sentences:
"The dog eats its food."
"The girl washes her clothes."
"The man hates exercise."
The simple sentence is typically has a subject (the dog / the girl / the man), followed by a verb (eats / washes / hates), followed by an object (food / clothes / exercise).
You could also have simple sentences consisting of only a subject and a verb, for example:
"The man cries."
"The bird flies."
"The girl sings."

A complex sentence would be:
"The girl washes her clothes, but then throws it away."
"The man cries, because he hurt his toe."
"The dog eats its food and then plays on the lawn."
The complex sentence is typically made up of simple sentences that are joined together by conjunctions. Conjunctions are words like "and", "but", "because", "although", etc.

So, the complex sentences above, actually looks like this when you look at them closely:
"The girl washes her clothes" + "The girl throws her clothes away." - joined by "but".
"The man cries" + "The man hurt his toe." - joined by "because".
"The dog eats its food" + The dog plays on the lawn." - joined by "and".
Complex sentences can be very long, consisting of many simple sentences that are all joined by conjunctions.

2wire gateway router from windstraem, i need a security key or passphrase, do any of you know what this would be? thank you crush


A pass phrase is a sentence (statement, negation, interrogation) or part of a sentence (phrase) that has some meaning to you and is as such easily remembered by you. It is much easier to recall then a 26 character hexadecimal string. For the pass phrase, make up anything meaningful that you know will remember easily but not too easy to guess by people around you.
