Grammar rocks! -- What are the parts of speech?



cujgieCujgie on 08/02/2008

GrammarrocksWhatarethepartsofspeech Photo The Grammar Curmudgeon* says it so well:

"The phrase 'part of speech' refers to an identifying label given to a word based on how it is used in a sentence. Although lists of these labels may differ slightly, grammar books traditionally list eight parts of speech: noun, pronoun, verb, adjective, adverb, conjunction, preposition, interjection.

Before learning the parts of speech, it is useful to understand why we bother with these classifications in the first place. In brief, having labels for how words function in a sentence helps us to understand better how sentences are constructed and therefore makes us more skillful at putting sentences together."
