The Parts of Speech

Every word you speak or write has a definite use in expressing a thought or idea. The way the word is used determines what part of speech that word is.

The parts of speech are nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and nterjections.



Nouns A noun is a word used to name a person, place, thing or idea. Pronouns A pronoun is a word used in place of one or more nouns.
Adjectives An adjective modifies a noun or a pronoun. Verbs A verb is a word that expresses action or otherwise helps to make a statement.
Adverbs An adverb is a word used to modify a verb, an adjective, or another verb. Prepositions A preposition is a word that shows the relationship of a noun, or a pronoun to some other word in the sentence.
Conjunctions A conjunction joins words or groups of words. Interjections An interjection is an exclamatory word that expresses emotion. It has no grammatical relation to the rest of the sentence.
