English: To identify and use parenthesis

Parenthesis adds extra information to a sentence. It is particularly useful for adding more information about a setting or character.

Brackets, dashes and commas indicate parenthesis.

For example:

  • Commas: The lion, who has sharp teeth, ate his dinner.

Commas are used here as the parenthesis is important to the sentence.

  • Brackets: The lion (with a fluffy mane) ate his dinner.

Brackets are used here as the parenthesis isn’t important to the sentence.

  • Dashes: The lion - who wasn’t very cool - ate his dinner.

Dashes are used here as the parenthesis is informal.

Now, open the parenthesis document attached below and complete the activities in your book.

For task 1 – just list the punctuation used to show parenthesis.

For task 2 – write the passage in your book with the correct punctuation.
