  1. Subject-Verb agreement:
    Verbs must agree in number with the noun used as a subject. Singular indefinite pronouns are anything ending in body or one, each, either, and neither. Plural indefinite pronouns are both, few, many several.
    There are five indefinite pronouns that can change and may be either singular or plural. The ”Magical Five” are all, any, most, none, some.

  2. Paragraphing is a way to easier display your information. With good paragraphs its more clear what you want to show and in general it will be easier to comprehend what you’re trying to say. To have good paragraphs you have to have a good beginning of it, then in some sentences say what you want to say without unneccesary information. Close the paragraph with some words and then begin a new one.

  3. When you right a text you need to split the text in paragraphs. A paragraph is when you divide the text in smal parts that makes it easier to reed. You make a paragraph by pressing enter to make a blank space between the text or make a indentation in the text. Alla paragraphs in your text should be the same size . You start a new paragraph when you start righting a about a new topic or switch character.

  4. Paragraph: Paragraphs is parted up text bits to not clutter up the whole thing. To not clutter it up, try to not use filler words and sentences, and just stick to the topic. Inte end try to close the paragraphs out with a summary. Every paragraph should be equal in size to the one before, which means they all should be the same.

    You can make new paragraphs by pressing enter two times to hop down a few rows, or pressing space two times to make a indentation. The paragraph should only contain only information needed, not more, not less.

  5. Paragraphing: When you are going to type a long text about something then its important to use paragraphing so you don’t confuse the reader. It’s also important to have your paragraph divided in just as much text as your first paragraph and that you don’t provide unnecessary information.

  7. Paragraphing

    A paragraph splits the text in to different parts. When you have finished a part of the text and intend to start on a different part you can use a paragraph which makes the text easier to read. You shouldn’t write about 2 different things ion the same paragraph. A paragraph is essentially a space between the two different parts. You should make sure the paragraphs are similar in size but it’s not a must.

  10. Subject – Verb Agre.

    When you´re adding a verb to a subject, to say that something is doing something, you must see so that the subject and the verb has the same form of singular/plural. If you are meaning to say that one of something is doing something you must conjugate your verb so that it fits, as to say ”The man has an apple” and not the ”The man have an apple”. You must also look out for sentences like ”These people, but also this man…” since your subject, by defining him the last time, is your subject so the verb should be singular. Also if you define two things as one, example: Potatoes and beef, you see them as one single thing, a dish, so you write your verb as singular.

  11. First of, a paragraph is the space used for a subject that you’re writing about. Start with an idea about what’s supposed to be written in the paragraph, then add supporting sentences in a definite order. Secondly, your sentences inside the paragraph needs to connect to each other and work as a whole. A way to achieve that would be to use words such as first, second and third, above or below and furthermore, addition and in fact.

  12. Paragraphing

    You should begin the paragraph by presenting your subject. This is usually just one sentence, later you should go in to detail. which takes me to the second part. This part is about order, in what order you will write in, for example chronological order. This is to avoid confusion in your text, you need a structure.
    Another important part about structure is transition words, you can use these to help the reader to navigate in the paragraph, this can be words such as first or second.
    You should avoid irrelevant detail and information and make it as easy as possible for the reader to understand the paragraph.

  13. Paragraphing is used in a text you write to not clutter the text up and help the user digest different parts of information(information about different topics/places). Paragraphs are done by hitting space 2 times in a regular word document or by using indentations. Each and every paragraph should be roughly as long as the others. Good places to start a new paragraph would be when you change topic or the general idea of the text is changing. Also at places like; a new day, a new place or introduction of something new in general. To write a good paragraph you need to have good structure and enough information to adress what you want. Too much information is also bad because genrally this means that a lot of irrelevant sentences exists in the paragraph. Make sure to write stuff that matters!

    For example right here I made a new paragraph because I’m changing the topic. A paragraph should always start with a topic sentence that sort of answers the topic but mainly expresses it. As an example I choose this topic sentence as a pointer ”Sunday is my favorite day because I spend the day watching football with my dad.” This expresses the topic that is at hand and also gives your take on it. Paragraphs should also have a conclusion that wraps the whole paragraph up with something that strengthens your idea/opinon.

  14. Paragraphing:
    Paragraphing is used to make the text easier to read. You make a paragraph by pressing enter twice. A paragraph should not be to long and they all should be about the same length. You make a new paragraph when you change topic, change the time (next day), switch to another person in the story or change place.
