What is an appositive? Friday bits and ends

What is an appositive? A bit of information you insert in between the subject and the verb.  You need commas or other sorts of punctuation to set this off.  This image of bunny paws can help you remember to do this:

Now, to this bit of charm from N.N. Ta DAH!

Thinking for next week:


  • Stasis theory in action:  sucralose analysis
  • Look for your two articles (in class discussion on how to choose)
  • Preparing for the next memo:  recommendation memo report (an evaluation of a complex situation)
    • Definition/description: paper and plastic (Styrofoam) cups for hot beverages
    • Definition/description: what is green?  What is sustainable? What is embodied energy?
    • Cause/Effect: Life Cycle Analysis (EPA has a good source)
    • Cause/Effect: depletion of resources/inputs and pollution/outputs
    • Decision criteria: which environmental problem is more important: carbon pollution and global warming?  The fate of plastic in ocean and other aquatic aquatic systems and both phytoplankton photosynthesis and food chain disruption?

Think about these items for our discussion on Monday. That Jane wants another memo:  which sort of coffee cup should we use in our office? What is the green choice:  paper or plastic?
