Hi,

what problem would students find with this sentence, refering to word class and s v o c a?

" I at the weekend saw good film "

That depends on the level of the students.

I'll just offer a better version.

" At/on the weekend I saw a good film. "

" I saw a good film at/on the weekend . "

What does the c a refer to?

I ;SUBJECT
AT THE WEEKEND; PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE FUNCTION AS ADVERB OF TIME ADJUNCT
SAW; VERB
A GOOD MOVIE ; OBJECT OF THE VERB SAW
The obvious problem or the why a student COULD produce this sentence is that we generally put adverbs of frequency before a verb (after a subject) although I've never really seen a student try and put adverbial phrases in this position- real example or something made up to test grammarians... hmmmm....
Hi did u have any luck with analysing this sentence, as I have the same problem?

Anonymous what problem would students find with this sentence, refering to word class and s v o c a?" I at the weekend saw a good film "
I'd put an adverbial "at the weekend" at the end of the sentence. So the word order would be:

1) According to the word classes:

I - a pronoun; saw - a verb; a - a determiner; good - an adjective; film - a noun; at - a preposition; the - determiner; weekend - a noun.

2) According to the functions:

I - a subject; saw - a verb (predicator); a good film - an object; at the weekend - an adverbial.
