Conversion or Transformation of Sentences – Substitution of Parts of speech

Conversion or transformation of a sentence implies changing grammatical form of a sentence from one to another without changing its meaning.

It can be done in one of the following ways :

A. By substituting one part of speech by another.

Sentences comprise of words of different parts of speech i.e. Noun, Verb, Adjective or Adverb etc. Sentences can be rewritten by changing one of these forms to another form.

(a). By substituting a noun form of a word
(b). By substituting a Verb form of a word
(c). By substituting an Adjective form of a word
(c). By substituting an Adverb form of a word

B. By Conversion of the adverb Too.

Sentences contain words ‘Too and to’   meaning  ‘so….. that’  ……generally in a negative sense as  :

The old man is too weak to walk.    meaning that…
The old man is so weak that he cannot walk.

Sentences from the first form are converted to second form or vice versa.

There are two types of such sentences in which the word ‘too’ is used.

In first type of sentences the word ‘too’ is followed by ‘to’ and in the second type of such sentences only the word ‘too’ is used.

(1). First type of sentences
(2). Second type of sentences
