Analysis Key

Remember that the primary objective of these assignments to stop students from marking things such as "off Curdken's hat" (in the first sentence) as a prepositional phrase. These analysis keys do not include all the possible options for the phrasal verbs. For example, "put on" could be considered a finite verb phrase, or the "on" could be described as an adverb. 

1. The wind blew off Curdken's hat (DO). | ["The Goose Girl"]

2. Then she drove on the geese (DO) and sat down again {in the meadow}. | ["The Goose Girl"]

3. And Curdken went on telling the king his story [#1]. | ["The Goose Girl"]

4. The princess put on her maid's shabby clothes (DO). | ["The Goose Girl"]

5. *You* Just look at the beautiful flowers (DO) [#2] . | ["Little Red Riding Hood"]

6. The Wolf made a jump (DO) {out of bed} and swallowed down 

poor Little Red Riding Hood (DO) also. | ["Little Red Riding Hood"]

7. They went on eating [#1] {without interruption}. | ["Hansel and Grethel"]

8. "*You* Leave off that noise (DO) ." | ["Hansel and Grethel"]

9. {Upon a clear space} he had turned out his sack (DO) {of jewels}, [Adv.

(result) to "turned out" so that he could count and admire them (DO)]. | 

["Snow-White and Rose-Red"]

10. Then she took her clumsy shoe (DO) {off her left foot} and put on the

golden slipper (DO). |  ["Cinderella"]


Notes
1. The easy part here is that "story" is the direct, and "king" the indirect object of "telling." "Telling" itself can be explained in several ways within KISS. If we look at "went on" as meaning "kept," some grammars include "keep" among helping verbs. Thus, "telling" could be considered part of the finite verb phrase. Alternatively, it could be described as a verbal (gerund) that functions as the direct object of "went on." Probably the weakest explanation of "telling" within KISS is to consider it a gerundive (verbal adjective) that describes "Curdken."
2. In this case, look {at ... flowers} would also be acceptable.
