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. Collectively all of the parts of speech work together to flow with grammatical syntax.
