Sentence 9

Novel: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Her Sentence

So if I don't show up, worry they will.

Commentary: This sentence struck me are unique. I thought of Yoda when I read it. If I am not mistaken Collins has used a from of hyperbaton known as inversion in this balanced sentence. Inversion is when the verb is placed in front of the subject to bring about a different effect for the sentence. The effect that I feel that Collins is trying to bring about is Katniss is deeply concerned about her family worrying about her, with all that is going on they may panic and end up getting in trouble.

My Sentence

I have to clean my room or sink it will.
