There are eight key parts of grammar in the English language: noun, pronoun, adjective, verb, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection. These units show how any word functions in meaning and to make it grammatically correct. It is the first aspect that needs to be learned when you're grasping the concept of language. Noun: A noun is simply the name of a person, place, thing, etc. For instance, Harris, London, cupboard. Pronoun: A pronoun is a word used in place of a noun. For example, He, she, they, it. Verb: A verb is a word that expresses an action. For instance, eating, cooking, writing, etc. Adverb: An adverb is a verb that helps in describing a verb, adjective or another adverb. For instance, gently, carefully, etc. Adjective: An adjective is a word that describes a noun or a pronoun. For instance, old, smart, pretty, etc. Preposition: A preposition is a word that is placed before a noun or a pronoun to modify another word in the sentence. For instance, my sister brought me water from the kitchen. Conjunction: A word that joins words, phrases, or clauses. For instance, and, but, etc. Interjection: An interjection is a word that is used to express an emotion.
