A part of speech identifies the function of a word. Parts of Speech include nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, articles, gerunds, pronouns, prepositions, and conjunctions.
Nouns name people, places, things, qualities and states which also include abstract and plural. An example of a noun would be ‘clown’, ‘dog’, ‘art’, ‘idea’, ‘herd’, and ‘advice’.
Adjectives describe nouns. Examples of adjectives include ‘big/small’, ‘strong/weak’. To make comparisons, use (adjective) + …’er than’( and watch out for irregular comparisons). With superlatives, there are irregular superlatives and regular (adjective + …‘est’).
There are indefinite and definite articles in English. Indefinite includes ‘a’ and ‘an’ because it refers to any member of a group, whereas definite articles refer to a specific member of a group.
Verbs refer to the noun ‘doing something’ or ‘being’. Verbs are grouped into transitive and intransitive. Transitive verbs need an object in the sentence (ex: make dinner). Intransitive verbs do not need an object following it. Infinitive verbs are the base form of the verb unmodified (ex: to jump). Verb forms are modified verbs that show tense such as the past simple, past participle, and present participle. (Ex: hoped, hoped, hoping). However there are irregular verbs with a non-rule following past simple, past participle, and present participle. Auxilliary verbs help form a tense by combining with present participles, past participles, or infinitives (ex: He is having a great time.)
Adverbs modify a verb or an adjective. Adverb types include manner, place, time, degree, frequency, comment/attitude, linking, viewpoint, and adding/limiting (ex: slowly, here, now, very, once, actually, firstly, morally, also).
A gerund functions as a noun and is the -ing form of the verb ( ex: Playing is nice.)
Pronouns are used as nouns and include personal, possessive, reflexive, and relative (ex: I , mine, myself, which).
