Rachel S.
Answer:

Direct object pronouns (DOP) answer the question of "to whom?" or "what?" in a sentence. It is the person or thing receiving the action in the sentence. In Spanish, the direct object pronouns are me, te, lo/la, nos, os, los/las. Usually these are taught with a conjugation chart. Examples- Yo llamo por teléfono a mi mamá---> La llamo por teléfono

Question:

Is animal communication considered language? Support your argument.

Answer:

(Long Response example) Animal communication systems are extremely effective. They’re so effective that humans can easily confuse animals’ systems (ranging from simple bird calls to more complex dolphin sounds) with language. Granted, animal communication is evolving and can share some qualities overlapping with language, but these are only to a certain extent. Naturally occurring human languages (NOHL) all share six properties: semantics, hierarchical structure, displacement, self-reference, and cultural transmission. To date, animals have only displayed pretenses of displacement and cultural transmission. Attempts to teach animals human language have shown moderate success in some areas, specifically lexicon, but not so much syntax.....

Question:

What is the conjugation for the simple present third person singular?

Inactive
Rachel S.
Answer:

The simple present is a grammatical tense that represents something happening now, in the present. It has not already happened. We know that our third person singular pronoun is she/he/it. In order to conjugate a regular verb into the third person singular, add an -s to the end of the verb. I typically use a verb conjugation chart to teach this. For example, I play, you play, but he/she/it PLAYS.
