2) about his injury - prepositional phrase
3) couldn't have cared less - verb phrase
This paragraph is from the very beginning of the novel:
When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow. When it healed, and Jem’s fears of never being able to play football were assuaged, he was seldom self-conscious about his injury. His left arm was somewhat shorter than his right; when he stood or walked, the back of his hand was at right angles to his body, his thumb parallel to his thigh. He couldn’t have cared less, so long as he could pass and punt.
It is also important to note the difference between dependent clauses and main clauses. Dependent clauses do not express a complete thought, and they cannot stand on their own as a sentence (or if they do, it makes no sense). There are different types of dependent clauses - relative (adjectival), adverbial, and noun clauses. When it comes to main clauses, they convey a complete idea.
1. read the following excerpt from franklin d. roosevelt's "fireside chat 19":
on the other side of the picture, we must learn also to know that guerilla warfare against the germans in, let us say serbia or norway, us; that a successful russian offensive against the germans us; and that british successes on land or sea in any part of the world strengthen our hands.
remember always that germany and italy, regardless of any formal declaration of war, consider themselves at war with the united states at this moment just as much as they consider themselves at war with britain or russia. and germany puts all the other republics of the americas into the same category of enemies. the people of our sister republics of this hemisphere can be honored by that fact.
the true goal we seek is far above and beyond the ugly field of battle. when we resort to force, as now we must, we are determined that this force shall be directed toward ultimate good as well as against immediate evil. we americans are not destroyers — we are builders.
