英文gramma動詞問題

每個english句子都只可以有一個動詞, 但以下的句子就???

"It was terrifying" said Sam who changed his mind , signed a long term contract.

我唔明said係咪主動詞, 如果係,個句子咪有多個一個動詞!!!!!!!

但另一個問題係, 如果個句子有豆號

eg, it is not an easy game, we go 1-0 down.

咁一個句子咪有兩個動詞囉???

    每個英文句子都可以過多一個動詞. 不一定過要多過一個subject.

    一個subject可以有兩個 verbs.

    A compound verb consists of two or more verbs joined by a conjunction and having the same subject.

    例如:

    She traveled and lectured much of her life.

    Mother will sell or rent the house.

    "It was terrifying" said Sam who changed his mind, signed a long term contract.

    [這句子有run-on sentence, not quite right.]

    這句子有四個 verbs, 分別是 was, said, changed 和 signed.

    只有 said 是 main verb. 又是 reporting verb , 因為有 direct speech.

    "was" 是 verb of the direct speech. "changed" 和 "signed" 是 verbs of the adjective clause.

    terrifying不是verb, 是 adjective.

    RUN-ON SENTENCE:

    it is not an easy game, we go 1-0 down. ~ grammatically wrong.

    嚴格來說, 這句子是文法上的錯誤. In English, we call it “Run-on sentence.”

    A run-on sentence consists of two or more sentences separated only by a comma or by no mark of punctuation.

    It is not an easy game and we go 1-0 down. (correct)

    It is not an easy game; we go 1-0 down. (correct) Use a semi-colon in this case.

    Use a semi-colon between independent clauses in a sentence if they are not joined by and, but or nor, for, yet.

    I came, I saw, I conquered. – by Julius Caesar

    這句子是文法錯誤, 雖然講者是凱撒大帝, 翻譯不理文法, 直譯.

    said is a verb.

    And "who changed his mind , signed a long term contract" is describing Sam and it 's seperated.

    it is not an easy game, we go 1-0 down.

    it's alright to have 2 verbs in this case and it involve two main clause.

    {Main clause}, {Main clause}.

    Main clause = Subject + Verb + Object.
