  1. We cannot build a gracious inclusive soc iety if we continue to de ny the achievements of those perceived to be different and less able than we.
  2. I'm going to lose a lot because this is my peak business period.

Mr Teo himsel f noted that few saw dis abled athletes as sportsmen.

  • The expression “man’s best friend” does not go far e nough for Buddy

  • asking if the caller needs h elp.

  • he received treatment and spent two days recuperating .

  • a trained assistance dog wou ld call 91 1

  • for him to respond to the operator the way he did wit h the barking
    Thank you!

    I've never even seen this classification of processes before, and I don't really see the use of them, but I'll take a guess anyway:
    1. We cannot build a gracious inclusive society if we continue to deny the achievements of those perceived to be different and less able than we.-- mental
    2. I'm going to lose a lot because this is my peak business period.-- relational

    3. Mr Teo himself noted that few saw disabled athletes as sportsmen.-- verbal

    4. The expression “man’s best friend” does not go far enough for Buddy -- existential

    5. Mr Joe Stalnaker, who suffers from debilitating seizures due to injuries in the army-- material

    6. asking if the caller needs help.-- mental

    7. he received treatment and spent two days recuperating.-- material


    8. a trained assistance dog would call 911 -- material
    9. for him to respond to the operator the way he did with the barking-- relational


    I'm looking forward to reading the answers.

    Hi

    Thanks for your reply. Not sure if the following will help to make things clearer, the processes are actually different categories of verbs. Hence
    1. Material is Action verbs
    2. Mental is Sensing verbs
    3. Verbal is Saying verbs
    4. Relational is Linking verbs
    Therefore will your answers differ after this?

    I have another sentence which I'm unsure of.
    1. no one was hurt in the mishap.
    What will the 'hurt' fall under?

    Thank you!
    .
    #4 then means linking verbs, as in be, become, seem? Then my answers to going and did are wrong, but I don't know what they are-- I was thinking of 'relational' as referring to time/tense.

    Hurt, I suppose, is material here.

    thanks for all the reply. I have another 2 words which I'm unsure of.
    “He’s my world. He’s my best friend, no question. He’s always there,” he was quoted as saying by UPI.com

  • the training was put to use when Mr Stalnaker suffered a seizure.

    Is it always the case that 'suffer' will definitely fall under Mental process (Sensing verb)? But why is it so?

    Thank you!
    .
    I don't think that suffer is always a mental process at all, particularly as in your sentence, where suffered a seizure means underwent a seizure, had a seizure-- material.

    Quoted is verbal, I presume.
