Activity on connectors

Our language teacher gave us a task on connectors. What we are supposed to do is to find how Roald Dahl uses connectors on his story, “Boy”, by finding 4 examples of each type of connector in the book. If we can’t find what we are supposed to find, we should create the example ourselves. The ones from the book will be between inverted commas and the ones I created will not.

Sequence

  • “At first I only heard the crack…”
  • “…Mr. Coombes’s performance the second time…”
  • “The third one seemed worse than the second…”
  • “…Fifth Form next to them!”

Comparison

  • “…just as the manly lover always did it”
  • “…the second time was the same as the first”
  • Not only he is blind, but also deaf

Reason
