I can see clearly now rain has gone

I can see all obstacles in way

Gone are dark clouds that had me blind

It’s gonna be bright sunshiny day

I think I can make it now pain has gone

All of bad feelings have disappeared

Here is rainbow I’ve been praying for

It’s gonna be bright sunshiny day

Look around there’s thing but blue skies

Look straight ahead there’s thing but blue skies

    is my an article. I thought it was a possessive pronoun?

  2. alexcase says:

    You are of course right, but I find students and even teachers are generally scared off by the word “determiner”, so I tend to say “articles or things like articles” in class. I have a similar policy on misuse of the word “tense”. You can of course change the worksheet before using it if you don’t agree.

    too good for concept building

  4. alexcase says:

    Come to think of it, “my” is a possessive adjective of course, the equivalent possessive pronoun being “mine”
