Question:

Re-write the following sentence so that it is not a run-on: She was anxious to get home, the children were waiting for her.

Answer:

She was anxious to get home because the children were waiting for her. or The children were waiting for her, so she was anxious to get home. Either sentence corrects the run-on. In the first example, both independent clauses become a complex sentence with the addition of the word because. In the second example, the clauses are switch and combined with a comma and conjunction creating a compound sentence.

Answer:

A dynamic character is a character who learns a lesson or fundamentally changes throughout the course of a piece of literature. One of the most famous examples of this concept is Ebenezer Scrooge from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. At the beginning of the novel, his soul focus is money and keeping his own wealth. After his encounters with the ghosts he learns that there is more value in generosity towards his workers than in hoarding money to himself. He is a dynamic character because of his fundamental change.

Question:

Describe the difference between the literal and figurative meaning of the phrase, "so itchy you want to scratch your skin off." What type of figurative language could this represent?

Answer:

The phrase, "so itchy you want to scratch your skin off," could literally mean that you want to take the skin off your body. It could also have the figurative meaning that something is just extremely itchy. When a phrase has both a figurative and a literal meaning it is called an idiom. You could also describe this phrase as a hyperbole because it is an extreme exaggeration.
