4.2.3 Adjectives

Adjectives are words which describe nouns, for example blackhorse, thesechairs, somepeople, my chocolate or twelve swans. In Latin they ‘agree’ with the noun they describe: they match with regard to gender and number (and also case – but we will discuss that later). This is occasionally so in English, too. For example, we say that house but thosehouses.

2.4.4 Networks

The fourth complication of my definition of a carer was networks. The drive to recognise someone as an informal carer or main carer risks leaving out of the picture other people who play an important part in sustaining someone, but who are not the main carer. In Lynne's case, for example, we heard that her boyfriend, Eddie, was an important figure. If her needs for care were under the spotlight, would Eddie figure? He probably does not count as a main carer, but without him her quality of lif

1.4.5 Summary of Section 1.4

  1. Deciduous trees avoid the problems of winter by shedding their leaves.

  4. Hibernation occurs only in certain small mammal species and one species of bird and is accompanied by marked phy

1.4 Structures of power & inequalities

At the same time, such judgements and responses are not just personal matters: they are also embedded in all sorts of wider and interpersonal processes of power and inequality. These processes shape social policies, professional interventions, and representations in the media, as well as underpinning everyday social interactions in family lives and relationships. If we focus on family meanings, we may not always put issues of power, material inequalities, and moral evaluations at the centre o

2.5 Review

The materials from which this simple sensor is made have been carefully chosen. They have had to be compatible with one another during the manufacturing process – so that for example, etching the material in one layer did not affect another material laid down previously. It had to be possible to shape them into the desired form, though some compromises also had to be struck. For instance, the V-groove trench is not the ideal geometry for the pit behind the beam but it is very easily made in
