In my music theory class we are learning about cadences and I need some help. I get Perfect authentic but Imperfect and Half is where it gets confusing. Can someone explain them to me. And also for minor cadences when you have to build the V would you build it the right way: in amin the V would be E,G#,B or E,G,B

As you know, a Perfect Authentic Cadence is an Authentic Cadence where the V chord is in root position and the root of the V chord is in the soprano, then the V chord goes to the I chord in root position as well, with the root of the I chord being in the soprano. Essentially, an Imperfect Authentic Cadence is when either chord is no in root position and/or the root of either chord is in the soprano.

A Half Cadence is when a phrase ends with the V chord.

In A Minor, the V chord is E G# B because the V chord is major.

Sorry for the double post, but last night UG was being slow and wasn't loading so I wasn't able to change the mistakes I made. Here's what the last sentence of the first paragraph should read.

"Essentially, an Imperfect Authentic Cadence is when either chord is not in root position and/or the root of either chord is not in the soprano."
