PREVIOUSThe narrative voice. This story is in the ‘third person’ that is, the narrator is not a participant in the story. But the narrator often seems to tell the story from the point of view of one of the characters in the story. For example, look at the Italianized words in the sentences. Thank goodness, she did not live up on Boggins Heights or have a funny name. Whose thoughts do the words ‘Thank goodness’ express? Maddie’s, who is grateful that although she is poor, she is yet not as poor as Wanda, or as ‘different’. (So she does not get teased; she is thankful about that.) A. Here are two other sentences from the story. Can you say whose point of view the italicized words express? (i) But on Wednesday, Peggy and Maddie, who sat down front with other children who got good marks and who didn’t track in a whole lot of mud, did notice that Wanda wasn’t there. (ii) Wanda Petronski. Most of the children in Room Thirteen didn’t have names like that. They had names easy to say, like Thomas, Smith or Allen.NEXTLook at these sentences. The italicized adverb expresses an opinion or point of view.Obviously, the only dress Wanda was the blue one she wore every day. (This was obvious to the speaker).Note: A word that tells us more about the verb, adjective or (except noun and pronoun) other words is called an Adverb.For Example:Other such adverbs are apparently, evidently, surprisingly, possibly, hopefully, incredibly, etc. Use these words appropriately in the blanks in the sentences below. (You may use a word more than one word may be appropriate for a given blank.)1. ………………… he finished his work on time.2. ………………… it will not rain on the day of the match.3. ………………….., he had been stealing money from his employer.4. Television is ………………… to blame for the increase in violence in society.5. The children will ……………….. learn from their mistakes.6. I can’t ………. Lend you that much money.7. The thief had ……………….. been watching the house for many days.8. The thief …………. Escaped by bribing the jailor.9. ………………., no one had suggested this before.10. The water was ………….. hot.
