Formation des adverbes :


nom + -ly = ADJ


adj + -ly = ADV





Syntaxe :


V / GV + N objet







A l'inverse du français,

le verbe / groupe verbal

est rarement séparé

de son objet par un (ou plusieurs) adverbe,

surtout si cet objet est un GN simple.


Le verbe et son objet sont souvent inséparables :

but Joblessness Remains


September 20, 2010

We clearly still have a long ways to go.”

COULD this ghostly apparition

finally prove what many have known for centuries

- Hampton Court really is haunted?

The spooky image was caught on CCTV,

the first time a supernatural sighting

has been recorded at the palace.

Mind you, if it a ghost, it's a safety-conscious one.

Guards scouring the footage were stunned

when the figure appeared on screen closing a fire door.

They had already seen the door mysteriously fly open on its own

in an exhibition area of the palace,

once home to King Henry VIII and some of his six wives.


His third wife Jane Seymour, who died in childbirth,

also supposedly haunts the grounds -

along with many other spooks.

But there's always somebody ready to spoil a good ghost story.

Professor Richard Wiseman,

a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire,

said the image of the CCTV film was probably

a "member of the public helpfully closing the door".

and drew open a neat white curtain to reveal the first model of a building

which will one day become the tallest

and possibly the most celebrated in the world.

The squabbles are over and the form is agreed.
