TESOL Videos - How to Pronounce 'INVEIGLE' - English Pronunciation
In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word inveigle. This word is used as a verb and refers to the action of persuading someone to do something through flattery or deception. The word comes from aveugler in Old French meaning ‘to blind’.
This is what one of our TEFL graduates feels he has gained from the course, or a part of it, and how he plans to put into action what he has learned.
Modal auxiliary verbs The ?modals? are: can, could, may, might, shall, should, will, would, must, have to, have got to, need to, needn?t and ought to. These are used before other verbs to add meaning to the main verb. With modals we can express obligation, possibility/probability, permission/prohibition, ability and advice. Different degrees of formality can be also expressed with different modal auxiliary verbs. Roleplay, rules are effective ways of teaching these verbs. Passive voice In passive voice the object of an active verb becomes the subject of the passive verb. Only transitive verbs (verbs followed by an object) are used in the passive. The form is: auxiliary verb ?be? + past participle. The tense is indicated by the auxiliary verb ?be?. We use passive voice when it is not known, not important or we do not want to say exactly who performs an action. If we want to indicate the person, a ?by? phrase is used. Relative clauses There are 3 categories: independent (it contains the main subject and verb of the sentence), dependent (it must be connected to an independent clause) and relative clauses (it is a dependent clause that describes, identifies or gives further information about a noun). A relative clause can be either defining (when the information given by the clause is essential to the meaning of the sentence) or non-defining (where the information is not essential). Phrasal verbs These consist of a verb and one or two particles and they operate as one item. Phrasal verbs can be intransitive, transitive separable or transitive inseparable depending on where the object pronoun?s position is.
