2.3 Parts Of Speech Review

The eight parts of speech are: Noun, Adjective, Pronouns, Verb, Adverb, Preposition, Conjunction, and Interjection.

1. Nouns: Naming words are called nouns. Nouns can be the names of persons, places, animals and things.
Examples: father, girl, Jan, garden, garage, tiger, computer, bottle, pillow

2. Verbs: Doing or action words are called verbs.
Examples:
Main verbs: sit, stand, walk, study, write, eat, drink, play, laugh.
Helping verbs: do and have are also verbs but they are not main verbs.

3. Pronoun: Words used instead of nouns are called pronouns.
Examples: he, she, they, it I, you, we, him, me, us, them

4. Adjective: Describing words are called adjectives. They describe a noun.
Examples: a fat man, a deep well, a blind bat, an old car.

5. Adverbs: Words that describe verbs or adjectives are called adverbs.
Examples:
The boy ran very fast. ('fast' is an adjective and 'very' describes it)
He spoke loudly. ('spoke' is a verb and 'loudly' describes it)

6. Prepositions: Position words are called prepositions. A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition. The preposition usually indicates the temporal, spatial, or logical relationship of its object to the rest of the sentence.
Examples:
There is no ink in my pen. ('in' is the preposition and 'ink' is its object)
I need a refill for my pen. ('for' is the preposition and 'refill' is its object)
I shall buy one on Monday at 5 o'clock. ('on' is the preposition and 'one' is its object)

7. Conjunction: Joining words are called conjunction.
Examples:
The sun shine during the day and the stars come out at night.
A fish can swim but a bird cannot.
The mice will play when the cat is away.

8. Interjections: Interjections are words used for showing surprise or any other strong feeling.
Examples: alas!, oh!, ah!, wow!, Gosh!, Hurray!
