Structures with Verbs / Jumbled Words
Putting words in Correct order to make sensible sentence
Class: 11

To be a sentence, there must be a verb e.g. go, stop. Before and after verb, there can be added different parts of speech. e.g. – noun, pronoun, adjective, article, adverb, auxiliary verb, preposition, connective

He was studying English for four years.
S +AUX+V5 +O + PREP+ADJ + N.

Where was he going?
Wh-word + aux + s+ V4?

In this way putting other parts of speech, to the either side of verb, a sentence is constructed. All the parts of speech have their certain place so when we reconstruct a sentence from jumbled words, we have to put them in their right place as illustrated above. Let’s learn from the example.
