DD has some interesting literacy homework this weekend. English isn't my strong point, but I thought I had stuff like nouns, verbs, adverbs etc sorted.

This had different types of pronouns (personal, relative and possessive) which I think I sort of get, but wouldn't mind someone to explaining it.

Also had subordinating and co-ordinating connectives. Now totally lost at sea. :oops: what on earth are these? I know what a connective is, but can someone please explain what these are?

(Give me calculus any day :lol: )

Thanks, that sort of helps with the connectives, (assuming the stuff on conjunctions relates)
However I'm not sure it helps with the types of pronouns she had.

Found a site for each type:
http://www.englishclub.com/grammar/pron ... rsonal.htm
http://www.englishclub.com/grammar/pron ... essive.htm
http://www.englishclub.com/grammar/pron ... lative.htm (apparently relative pronouns link two sentences and refer to the noun they follow)

If this doesn't help, I will try to work out an explanation. (The first two are easy to explain.)

Thanks, I think that sorts it all.

How did I survive all these years not knowing this stuff :lol:

I don't know what calculus is and I'd never heard of co-ordinating and subordinating connectives until a few weeks ago.
