Parts of speech

  1. 1. By: Jeric E. De Guzman
  2. 2. Part of Speech is a linguistic category of words, which is generally defined by the syntactic or morphological behaviour of the lexical item in question.
  3. 3. NOUN  A noun is a word used to name a person, animal, place, thing, and abstract idea. Nouns are usually the first words which small children learn.
  4. 4. Pronoun A pronoun can replace a noun or another pronoun. You use pronouns like "he," "which," "none," and "you" to make your sentences less cumbersome and less repetitive.
  5. 5. Verb The verb is perhaps the most important part of the sentence. A verb or compound verb asserts something about the subject of the sentence and express actions, events, or states of being.
  6. 6. Adjective An adjective modifies a noun or a pronoun by describing, identifying, or quantifying words. An adjective usually precedes the noun or the pronoun which it modifies.
  7. 7. Adverb An adverb can modify a verb, an adjective, another adverb, a phrase, or a clause. An adverb indicates manner, time, place, cause, or degree and answers questions such as "how," "when," "where," "how much".
  8. 8. Preposition A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition.
  9. 9. Conjunction word used to connect words, phrases, and clauses.
  10. 10. Interjection An interjection is a word added to a sentence to convey emotion. It is not grammatically related to any other part of the sentence.
