PARTICIPATE IN A WORKPLACE COMMUNICATION, PART 7

INFORMATION SHEET No. 5


EXPRESSING IDEAS AND THOUGHTS CORRECTLY

Look at the picture closely and read the dialogue.

Mang Victor: Alfred’s father, needs help, doesn’t he? Yes, he does.

Does Alfred understand his father? Does he get the message? Why?

“Help” “Alfred the ladder!” “over here” “Coming fast”

These are short oral messages which anyone understands because they express clear thoughts or ideas. However, when we write, we must state our ideas completely.

Compare the word groups in column I with those in Column II

Column I

Column II

Help!

You help me!

Alfred, the ladder!

Alfred you hold the ladder!

Over here!

You come over here!

Coming fast!

I’m coming fast!

Hurry up, please!

You hurry up, please!

The whole expression in Column II are called sentence, because they express complete thoughts or ideas.

Use the definition of a sentence to decide which of these word groups are sentences.

1. Alfred held the ladder tight.

2. Don’t move it.

3. Who is fixing the house roof?

4. Here comes the real capenter!

5. Mr. Manuel, the architect-contractor.

6. A big townhouse in Ayala, Alabang?

Notice that the first four word groups are SENTENCES. The last two examples may look like sentences. They begin with capital letters and end with punctuation marks like the period, but neither one expresses a complete thought.

See what happens when words or word groups are added to make them both sentences.

Mr. Manuel Miguel, the architect-contractor, plans the structure of the building.

Is Mr. Miguel building a big townhouse in Ayala, Alabang?

Do these word groups now suggest clearer, better and complete ideas?

KEEP IN MIND:

A sentence is a group of words that states a cxomplete thought

There are many kinds of sentences. Some sentences tell or ask something. Others give a command or express a strong feeling.


In a sentence, the beginning letter of the first word is always capitalized.

Each sentence ends with a punctuation mark, like a period, question mark, or exclamation point.


ACTIVITY SHEET No. 5:


A. Which of the following express complete thought and are therefore

sentences? Pick them out.

Which of the following do not express complete thought and are therefore not sentences? Rewrite them in meaningful sentences by adding necessary words.

Mang Victor and Alfred will put up a new fence (Sentence)

A good fence made of bamboo

(They built a good fence made of bamboo)

1. The old fence has rotten.

2. Into long strips.

3. However, nails are needed

4. The perimeter of our yard is about five hundred meters.

5. The height of the tallest post

6. My fingers

7. Sweat rolled down Mang Victor’s sturdy arms.

8. Chirping birds and buzzing bees.

9. How long are the bamboo strips?

10. In the tool box under the house.

B:

A word group is a sentence if it begins with a word whose first letter is capitalized. It is also a sentence if it ends with a period, a question mark or an exclamation point.

In the following word groups, find three (3) sentences in each number and rewqrite them coirrectly. Observe proper punctuation and capitalization.

Last night Spintail, my dog, awakened me it was a little after midnight he was barking frightfully.

Last night Spintail, my dog , awakened me. It was a little after midnight. He was barking frightfully!

  1. it got dark rain started to fall we ran to the house
  2. acacia tree make good firewood they easily burn when dry some fine pieces of furniture are made of acacia tree

  4. a stranger suddenly stopped me on my way to school he was a stern-looking man I began to trmble
  5. it is planting season people, young and old, have fun out in the fields again under the rain they work, sing and play.


SELF CHECK NO. 5:


Below are short meaningful sentences which anyone can use orally and understand easily. But when one writes, he must use sentences. Each sentence must have a person, place or thing, spoken of or to, and a word that expresses action or being.

Give a complete sentence for these messages.

The rice please. Please pass the rice, Mother.

  1. Listen.___________________________________________________
  2. Thanks. _________________________________________________
  3. Not sure. ________________________________________________
  4. Go up. __________________________________________________
  5. Quick! ___________________________________________________
  6. See you. _________________________________________________

Expression and emotions enhance our oral/verbal communication. With a simple words even we are not able to deliver the whole message but have the appropriate emotion and action the recipient will be able to understand our thoughts believe it or not our actions give more emphasis to what we mean rather than merely saying it. Actions speak louder than voice.

We can easily say that a person had a bad mood because he actually expressed a cloudy face. Not enough for us to tell this if the situation is not as the first one. Yeah its really hard to tell what the mood of the person we are dealing with if we are not seeing them. But as far as we can hear the voice we could tell it. Because emotions are expressible, the shadows of our true feelings.

But for a sentence to give the right message it should be complete. Subject and predicate must come together. Hmpt...not at all time, try this one. "RUN!" Is it a sentence? Does it express a complete thought?

The whole time is yours to think about it.

There is considerable evidence all learners attempt to relate new ideas to those in their memories. This may cause them to, for example, see or concentrate on different aspects of a phenomenon than would other learners.

the expression and emotion enhance a simple word even we are not able to the whole message to emotion and action.

Thought are comes from in our mind but the ideas is a expression to tell or say.Somes of writer use this to write poems to express their feelings but somes are they use it to sing a song to share about what inside their heart.In my search to myself even i can't say a words in my mind i do to write all of the pain,loneliness and even hapinness in my life.Maybe i am secretive person but i'm trying to be open.Sometimes i don't want to share a certain word because they doesn't understand the way you express your feelings.So it's enough for me to think what is good to say and be open sometimes.I forgot about the facial expression of a person on how you determine the move of their eyes,what did you see to her face.

The expression and emotion is the same word but it has a deferient meaning expression it all about our feeling that say something reality or weird bat true.
