    Exclamations: 3... completed

    The EXCLAMATIVES....  completed!




    (For more details, see test AND test

     (   in the plural, the indefinite article is 0)

    - How splendid this sand castle is!

    - What a splendid sand castle this one is!




    (In the plural, the indefinite article is 0 here too.

    -  This car is so fast!

    -  It's such a fast car! => They're such fast cars! 


    3) Exclamative words often introduce subordinates expressing a consequence:

    -  This car is so fast that we can't overtake it!

    -  It's such a fast car that I hardly saw it when it passed us!



                   A sea lion                                                                                Dancing dolphins                                                                     Sea lions


    4) In very formal written English, you may happen to meet  SO/HOW used with a different word order: most of the time, at your level, you simply have to recognize what they are and correspond to: 

    -  It is so big a book that he can hardly carry it ! = It's such a big book that he can hardly carry it.  

    -  How difficult an exercise this one is! I can't do it! = What a difficult exercise this one is ... I can't do it!

    Though looking quite 'unnatural' to most of you, this is the correct grammatical norm of this form and then, this word order has to be used, if required. 


       , in the following exercise, we are going to mix the different exclamative forms... You have to find them and put the convenient ones in the right places...




                                                                                    Killer Whales or ORCAS

    An unforgettable visit!

    1.Last month, with my family, I had the most fascinating visit of the nearby Sea Park. The first show was given by the sea lions. There were 5 or 6 of them, each with a trainer. When they started juggling with balls, I was !

    3. They can slide out of the water and are very clever and obedient.
    4. I had never seen !
    5. The second show was that I couldn't believe it!
    6. when a trainer rode a dolphin and played with it in the huge tank!
    7. The four dolphins threw balls, and jabbed at them... it was, in the middle of splashing water!
    8. The orcas were equally stunning! to see those four giants dance and jump in rhythm with It was incredible and everyone was applauding!
    9. When I saw these mammals and the polar bears (with their baby), I thought they were that it was good to be able to see them all over the world...
    10. Yet, later, I reflected that they were prisoners, and taken from their 'families' and environment... I was for them!
