Presented By: 
G. Tserendolgor
The Parts of Speech 
• There are mainly eight parts of speech in 
English language. That are Nouns, 
Pronouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs, 
Conjunctions, Interjections, Prepositions. 
• Parts of speech are identified by the place 
they have in the sentence, not by their 
meanings.
Nouns 
• A noun is a person , place, thing or an 
idea. Nouns are the subject of a sentence. 
a teacher a lion Ali 
Love is a beautiful 
thing.
Classification of Nouns 
• Nouns can be singular or plural. 
• Singular nouns name only one person, 
place, thing or idea ( an apple, the car, a 
table). 
• Plural nouns name two or more persons, 
places, things or ideas ( pencils, chairs, 
tables).
Proper and Common Nouns 
• Proper nouns refer to specific persons, 
places, things and ideas. They are always 
capitalized ( Holy Quran, Lahore, Minar-e- 
Pakistan). 
• Common nouns are all other nouns. They 
are not capitalizes unless they are the first 
word in the sentence. 
• Examples: cat, pencil, paper etc.
Collective Nouns 
• Collective nouns are the nouns that are 
grammatically considered singular, but 
include more than one person, place, 
thing or idea in their meaning. They 
emphasize group as one unit. 
family herd class
Countable and Un-Countable 
Nouns 
Countable nouns can Un- Countable nouns 
be counted. cannot be counted. 
bottles water 
eggs sand
Abstract and Concrete Nouns 
• Concrete nouns are nouns that you can 
touch. They are people, places and 
something. Person, court, pencil, hand, 
paper are concrete nouns. 
• Abstract nouns are nouns that you cannot 
touch. Things like air, justice, safety, 
democracy, faith, religion are abstract 
nouns.
Pronouns 
• A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun. 
They eliminate the need for repetition. 
• For Example: 
Instead of talking “ Hina talked to Hina’s 
child”, we might say “ Hina talked to her 
child”. 
Here “ her” is the pronoun. It renames “ 
Hina”.
Types of Pronouns 
• There are several types of pronouns. 
• Personal Pronouns: They refer to specific 
persons or things. Personal Pronouns can 
act as subjects, objects or possessives. 
• Personal Pronouns can be singular or 
plural. 
• Singular: I , me , you, she, her, he, him, it 
• Plural: we, us, you, they, them
Possessive and Reflexive 
Pronouns 
• Possessive pronouns indicate ownership 
or possession. For example: my, mine, 
your, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs. 
• Reflexive Pronouns name a receiver of an 
action who is identical to the doer of the 
action. For example: my self, yourself, him 
self, herself, itself, ourselves, yourselves. 
• Ahmad congratulated himself on his good 
grades.
Adjectives 
• An adjective modifies(describes) a noun 
or pronoun. Normally in English adjective 
comes before noun. For example: The 
smart student earned an “A”. 
• They also come after linking 
verbs. 
• For Example: 
I feel happy.
Cont… 
• Adjectives can be used to make 
comparisons(between two things). 
• For more adjectives with one or two 
syllables, you can add –er. For example: 
greater, faster, longer. 
• For adjectives longer than two syllables, 
you should use the word “more”. 
He was more intelligent then his sister.
Cont… 
• Adjectives can also be used as 
superlatives(comparing more than two 
things). This is usually done by adding – 
est to the end of an adjective that has one 
or two syllables.( loudest, coolest, 
smartest) 
• If the adjective is three or more syllables 
long, you must use the word “most”. 
She is the most intelligent girl in the class.
Cont… 
• There are some irregular adjective and 
verb forms. 
Adjective Adverb Comparing two Comparing three 
or more 
bad badly worse worst 
good well better best 
little - less least 
much many more most
Cont… 
• If three or more adjectives come in a 
sentence, the arrangement of them will be 
like: 
Determi-ner 
Opinion Size Age Color Origin Material Noun 
The, This Pretty Big New Blue Blochi Leather bag 
My Precious Small Ancient Black Chinese Silk Scarf
Adverbs 
• An adverb is a word that modifies an 
action verb, an adjective or another 
adverb. 
The teacher carefully graded the 
homework. 
• You need an adjective after linking verbs, 
not an adverb.
Types of Adverbs 
• Adverbs of Manner tell us that in which 
manner the action occurs or how the 
action occurs or will occur. 
She speaks loudly. 
He was driving slowly. 
• Adverbs of time tell us about the time of 
the action. 
I will buy a computer tomorrow. 
Do it now.
Cont… 
• Adverbs of Place tell us about the place of 
the action. 
He will come here. 
She went upstairs. 
• Adverbs of Frequency tell us how many 
times the action occur. 
He goes to school daily. 
He is always late for school.
Conjunctions 
• These are the scotch tape of the 
grammatical world. They join together 
words and phrases. 
• There are three types of conjunctions: 
• Coordinating Conjunctions 
• Correlative Conjunctions 
• Subordinating Conjunctions
• There are seven Coordinating 
Conjunctions: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so 
Fahad likes to eat but Zohaib likes to play. 
• You can remember these conjunctions by 
“FANBOYS”
Cont… 
• Correlative Conjunctions also join ideas, 
but they work in pairs. 
(Both…and, neither…nor, whether…or, 
either…or, not only…but also) 
Not only I am happy about the grades, but 
I am also excited that you are learning.
Cont… 
• Subordinating conjunctions join an 
independent clause with a subordinate 
clause. That is, they join a clause that can 
stand alone with the clause that cannot 
stand alone. 
(after, although, as, as if, because, before, 
even if, even before, if, since, unless) etc. 
Although the students were tired, they still 
come in the class.
Interjections 
• Interjections are words used to express 
emotional states. 
• Oh! Wow! Ouch! Oops! Hey! 
• They are usually found in spoken English.
Prepositions 
• Prepositions are words that, like 
conjunctions, join a noun or pronoun to 
another word in a sentence. 
• Some prepositions are: About, before, 
down, into through, above, behind, during, 
like, to, across, below, except, toward, 
after, beneath, of, for, off, under, among, 
beside, from, on, up, around, between etc.
Verbs 
• Verbs generally express action or a state 
of being. There are several classification 
for verbs- action verbs/ linking verbs/ main 
verbs/ auxiliary verbs, transitive/ 
intransitive verbs and phrasal verbs. 
• Action verbs show action. 
He runs. 
He plays.
Cont… 
• Linking verbs link a subject to an adjective. 
Butterfly is beautiful. 
• Main verbs can stand alone. 
Run, eat, work 
• Auxiliary verbs, also called helping verbs, 
serve as support to the main verbs( Have, has, 
had, do, does, did, be, am, is, are, was, were, 
been, being, should, could, would, will, might, 
can, may, must ,ought(to), shall).
Cont… 
• Transitive verbs need a direct object in 
order to make sense. 
Shaheer takes medicine for his headache. 
• Intransitive verbs do not need direct 
objects to make them meaningful. 
Hanzala swims. 
• Phrasal verbs are made up of a verb and 
a preposition. The preposition gives the 
verb a different meaning.
Cont… 
• For example verb “look” has a different 
meaning from the phrasal verb “look up”. 
• Some examples are:
Thanks for your Consideration
