READING DIGEST 1: TAKING A BREAK

EXERCISE 1.1 Read the following articles: I CAN'T TRAVEL WITHOUT… What are the things you can't do without when you go away? A. Patrick Lichfield, the photographer, never goes far without the Olympus Pearlcorder dictating machine which lets him catch up with his correspondence wherever he is. The tiny tapes are either posted to his secretary, Felicity, or he gives them to someone to bring back. The quality is very good but there are often some interesting background noises. B. Mel Calman, the cartoonist, jokes about filling his suitcase with tranquillisers and three different kinds of toothbrushes after recent, expensive dental treatment, but it is his diary and sketch-book that are always with him when he is on the move. ‘I don't keep a diary except when I'm away. I start a new one each trip now since I lost irreplaceable notes on two previous trips on a bus in the States.’ C. Richard Branson, who launched Virgin Atlantic airways, believes in travelling light. ‘Suntan lotion for my nose and my notebooks which are my lifeline. But I will always sling in a pack of cards. I love a game of cards, particularly bridge, canasta or spades, but I'm not a gambler.’ D. Barry Norman, the film critic, never travels anywhere without his credit card. ‘The days of anyone being stranded abroad are now over. I remember once, before credit cards were common, the Daily Mail sent me to Italy at a moment's notice. It was a bank holiday, I had no money and the banks were shut. There I was in Milan on a beautiful sunny day sitting in my hotel because it was the only place I could eat or drink because I could sign for it.’ E. Frank Muir, the TV scriptwriter and humorist, never sets off on a journey without packing his Swiss army penknife. ‘It does everything,’ he says. ‘It has about 140 things that come out. It opens bottles, gets things out of horses’ hooves, it has scissors, screwdrivers, tweezers. I never go anywhere without it and I have never used it.’ (from The Sunday Express Magazine)

FOCUS 11: ADVERBS OF MANNER examples He is a careful driver. He drives carefully. He drives his car carefully. NOT: *He drives carefully his car. explanations Careful is an adjective. It describes the noun driver. The adjective goes before the noun. Carefully is an adverb of manner. It describes the verb drive. The adverb answers the question “how?”. The adverb goes after the verb. When there is an object after the verb, the adverb goes after the object (his car).

EXERCISE 7.24 Go back to Exercise 7.23. Underline all the adjectives and circle the adverbs of manner. Example: Bill is a careful driver.

He eats moderately.
