What Are the Parts of Speech?

Just like a character in a play, a part of speech is to a sentence. All words used in a sentence follow one of the categories of parts of speech. How a word is placed in a sentence to be delivered determines its part of speech.

There are general considered to be eight parts of speech in the English language. Based on frequency of usage they would be nouns, verbs, adjectives, pronouns, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. Nouns give sentences subjects such as things, places, and people (yes that's mixed around) names. Verbs tell us what action is taking place. The tense of the verb must always agree with the subject of the sentence. Verbs can also be used to express a state of being. Adjectives are your normal run of the mill descriptive words. We use adjectives all the time to modify nouns and pronouns. Pronouns give us diversity by allow use to replace common names with other names. Without them language would seem much more formal than it does in today's spoken form. Adverbs basically are you're main word modifiers (usually on adjectives, verbs, or another word type). When you need to join something, be it a clause, phrase, or just words, we use conjunctions. Need to really express emotion in your writing, then you need an injection (Pow!) Need to make a phrase? You'll probably need little words called prepositions.

The Different Parts of Speech

1. Noun

The United States of America is the wealthiest country in the world.

My shoelaces are tied up.

Basketball is playing worldwide.

A noun is used for any idea, place, person, or thing. Nouns are of two kinds: proper and common nouns. The starting alphabet for a proper noun is always with a capital letter, such as Virginia. The proper nouns are names for specific places, persons, and concepts. While, common nouns such as a chair, table, fan, etc., are common words. Nouns are sometimes supported by an article(another part of speech).

2. Pronouns

I have a beautiful dress for the festival.

You are so irresponsible.

They have been playing cricket for two hours.

These are the substitutes for specific nouns. They are used to avoid the repetition of nouns. The pronoun is only comprehended when the speaker or writer mentions the specific noun to which the pronoun refers, such as She, Him, He, It, and They.

3. Verbs

John works in a renowned company.

The man sat across the road.

The teacher yelled when students were not listening to her.

He played well in the last match.

It is the action word in a sentence or a phrase, such as go, run, swim, sit, etc. Not all verbs are used to define literal action, feelings are also verbs in a sentence, but they are nonaction. Processes like loving, thinking and disliking are all nonaction verbs.

4. Adjectives

She made a delicious lasagna.

A handsome prince was riding on a horse across the lush, green grass.

Do you think this brownie tastes too sweet?

These are the modifiers of nouns in a sentence. They are placed in a sentence to give more details and describe a particular noun. For instance, if you ask your friend about his mother's health condition, he replies, "Her condition is serious." You'll be confused about how serious she is?

5. Adverbs

Emma runs well.

He plays the piano smoothly.

She can deliver food quickly.

These words are the modifiers of verbs and adjectives. These words usually end with -ly, such as quickly, slowly, etc.

6. Prepositions

She put the books on the table.

James was sitting at the park.

The wind was blowing over the hills.

Her success is beyond my expectations.

Prepositions are words in a sentence to describe the relationship of the subject, object, or the action that happens. There are prepositions of time, place, etc., that tell us the location or the time at which an event occurs.

7. Conjunctions

The pizza is tasty but spicy too.

May has two cats and a fluffy dog.

These words connect two clauses to give a single idea or show a connection between two ideas. The words like, and, but, and so are examples of conjunctions.

8. Articles

Maria is an extrovert

She's an actress.

Please hand me the changers.

These are the connecting words for a noun. They always support a noun. For nouns that start from a vowel, the article "an" is used while "a" is used for a consonant. The article "the" is used to specify the noun.
