Parts of Speech

In grammar, words are divided into 8 classes called parts of speech. They are:


Nouns are the names of people, animals, things, places, ideas, quality, material etc. It is easy to recognize nouns. Proper nouns will always begin with a capital letter. Common nouns tend to have plural forms. Examples are: bird, sister, Sanju, India, poet, river, Himalayas


Pronouns are words used to refer to nouns. We use pronouns to avoid the repetition of nouns. Examples are: he, she, they, it, you, we, I, somebody, anybody, them, ourselves etc.


Verbs are action words. They tell us what the subject does, is or has. Examples are: is, has, does, will, break, come, put, remember.


Adjectives are words used to describe nouns. They come at the beginning of nouns or noun phrases. An adjective can exist in three forms – positive, comparative and superlative. Examples are: bold, timid, courageous, pretty, interesting, kind, jealous, first, blue etc.


Adverbs are words used to give more information about verbs. They tell us about the time, place, manner or frequency of the action. Most words ending in –ly are adverbs. Examples are: soon, today, ago, kindly, softly, sometimes, evening etc.


Prepositions are words like in, on, at, above, before, by, with over, across, from, to etc.


Conjunctions are connecting words. They connect two words, phrases or clauses together. Examples are: if, and, but, or, though, after, before, when, unless etc.


Interjections are words that express a sudden emotion, feeling etc. Examples are: wow, oops, alas, yippee, hurrah etc.
