    Good morning! Chapter 24 focuses on the business letter.  As you work your way through Lessons 1-4, pay attention to References 71-73.  Not the subtle differences between friendly letters and the more formal business letters. I sent your vocabulary worksheet via email for Vocabulary List #1. Your practice sentences focus on pattern 5, which have predicate adjectives.  Remember:  a linking verb will NEVER be followed by indirect/direct objects.  After linking verbs you will be looking for predicate adjectives/nouns.  Also, it is helpful to go ahead and mark all the prepositional phrases because the PrA’s and PrN’s will never be in prepositional phrases. Don’t forget the practice sections for Chapter 24 in your…
