Things remained quiet in the colonies for three years after the Boston Massacre of 1770. Colonial radicals were itching for an excuse to stoke the forces of independence. The British Tea Act of 1773 was made to order. The British “bail-out” of the East India Tea Company relighted the flames.
Reflexive pronouns in English are formed by adding the suffixes “-self,” or “-selves” to object pronouns (my, our, your, it, them, etc.). They are used as objects of a sentence or preposition. Intensive pronouns are formed the same way, but are used differently.
The adverbial clause in Spanish is normally introduced by a conjunction (e.g., “a menos que” [unless]). Some conjunctions are always followed by the subjunctive, but others can be followed either by the subjunctive or the indicative, depending on their context.
The Spanish subjunctive mood is used in a subordinate clause (i.e., adjective clause) that refers to a person, place or thing whose existence is uncertain or indefinite, or does not exist (e.g., “I am looking for a person who can help me”). When the existence is certain, use the indicative mood.
Generally speaking, forming possessive nouns in English is rather simple: Just add an apostrophe and an -s to a singular noun or an apostrophe to a plural noun. However, there are some unusual and special rules that come into play when forming English possessives.
The Spanish subjunctive mood is mainly used in sentences with multiple clauses that express will and influence, emotion, and doubt or denial. The main clause is typically followed by a noun clause that serves as the object of the verb of will, influence, etc. (e.g. I hope that you have a good day).
