Grammar Pattern 30
Noun + Place + Verb + Noun or Adjective
A hungry dog in the street is looking for food.
This pattern is a little more difficult than previous sentence patterns but it is based on a combination of those patterns. The Model Sentence, for example, starts with a long noun (A hungry dog) as subject, then mentions the place (in the street) followed by a verb (is looking) then a final phrase (for food). Your English will become more fluent if you can say the sentences below easily. Remember, "practice makes perfect"!
