Syntax terms to define for 9/21/10

For homework tonight, find definitions of these syntactical terms (aka “schemes”). You should be able to find all the definitions in a regular dictionary, but make sure the definition has to do with sentence structure. Also,  the various types of sentences may not be in a dictionary; however,  Googling these types of sentences will probably give you a definition. Also, you may be able to find definitions at the website, The Daily Figure, which I have a link to on this site!
