Election Commentary with Language Building Blocks

10 Nov

OK, I’m going to try to do it completely from memory this time.

be copula/auxillary:  am, are, is, was, were.

Functional morphemes= articles:  a, an, the

It/’s [concop] frighten/ing inflectional morpheme to me (independent clause) that women [general nominal] (especially) can become so indoctrinat/ed inflectional morpheme by patriarchy (independent clause) sentential coordination/conjoined sentence that they challenge their own right/s inflectional morphemeanaphoric pronouns (dependent clause)

I find it astound/ing and sad (phrasal coordination) when women are [unconcop] the voice of dissent for (coordinating conjunction) Planned Parenthood [specific nominal], the right to choose [verb infinitive], or equal job pay.  (phrasal coordination)

And (coordinating conjunction) when they speak out against feminism, (dependent clause) I can/’t help but to think they must by *be [err] ignorant to the issue/s.  anaphoric pronouns (indepedent clause) embedded sentence

Also ignorant to history at large. (dependent clause) 

Though I believe that anyone [err] politician who make/3s it big HAS to be corrupt, (dependent clause) I/’m [concop] glad we stuck [ptirr] with Obama.  reflexsive pronoun (independent clause) embedded sentence

I say [3irr], HAS [3irr] to be corrupt, (dependent clause) because (subordinating conjunction) it cost/3s money to get elect/ed. (independent clause) embedded sentence

Big money(dependent clause)

And (coordinating conjunction) as anyone who has [3irr] ever receive/ed monetary (or other) support know/s (dependent clause)–there are [unconcop] always string/s attach/ed.  reflexive pronoun (independent clause) embedded sentence

Whether it be repayment, certain favor/s, or favorable vote/s or policy/s (phrasal coordination) for their interest/s. (dependent clause)

You always have to pay back. (independent clause)

So (coordinating conjunction) every presidential candidate has [3irr] to lose their own agenda, ethic/s, naivety, and idealolgy [err].  reflexive (phrasal coordination) (dependent clause)

In favor of practical–return of favor/s. (independent clause)

Anyway, I/’m [concop] glad Obama is [concop] reelect/ed. (independent clause)

If nothing else, so (coordinating conjunction) that we have someone consistent in office, who can finish something. anaphoric pronouns.


When you have upheaval and turn-around (dependent clause)–LESS get/3s done. (independent clause) embedded sentence

This is [unconcop] the time for more action. (independent clause)

Ultimately, I just want our country to be better. (independent clause)

I don’t care who is [conaux] lead/ing (independent clause)they just need to do a good job.  (independent clause) anaphoric pronouns sentential coordination/conjoined sentence
