Parts of Speech

There are 8 types of Parts of Speech in English Grammar which are divided according to their functionality what they do in a sentence.

  1. Noun
  2. Pronoun
  3. Verb
  4. Adjective
  5. Adverb
  6. Preposition
  7. Conjunction
  8. Interjection

Let’s discuss them one by one.

Noun: A noun is a word that is used as the name of a person, place, animal, thing, feeling, and idea in a sentence.

Nouns are ‘Peter, Paris, elephant, computer, mobile, etc……

What is the function of a noun in a sentence?

The function of a noun in a sentence is that it acts as a subject (Doer) as well as an object (Receiver).

  • Peter goes to the USA.
  • Jessica plays soccer in the evening.
  • Smith study English.

In these three sentences, you can see the place of a noun that is functioning as a subject or an object.

Pronoun: A pronoun is a word that is in place of a noun.

Why is a pronoun used for English Grammar?

A pronoun is used in English Grammar to stop the repetition of the noun in a sentence. It also acts as a subject as well an object as a noun does in a sentence.

Pronouns are “He, She, They, I, We, You, It.

  • John is a good player because he loves to play soccer.
  • Jessica went to the market and she bought a book from the market.
  • If Smith and David are together, they come to me.

Preposition: A preposition is a word that is used just before a noun/pronoun because it shows relationships in time, position, and place. We also called it relating words.

Prepositions are ‘at, in, by, with, before, after, from, on, etc…..

  • I will come to your home on Sunday because I want to ask you something related to my study.
  • The children are playing in the garden.
  • I complete my homework before hanging out with my friends.

Conjunction: A Conjunction is a word that is used to connect two similar things to each other like it connects ‘word to word’, ‘sentence to sentence’, ‘clause to clause’, phrase to phrase.

Conjunctions are ‘because, but, so, and, or, etc….

  • She can meet me at my house or at my office.
  • Jonathan loves to play football, but he doesn’t love to play soccer.
  • I said that I would play.

Verb: A verb is a word that is used to denote an action/state of the subject in a sentence.

He plays football in the garden. (In this sentence, verb (play) is denoting the action of the subject because it is an action verb.)

Emma is a good dancer. (In this sentence, verb (play) is denoting the state of the subject because it is a stative verb.)

  • He has a big house.
  • They enjoy learning English.

Adjective: An adjective is a word that is used to describe a noun/pronoun. It shows the quality of a noun/pronoun in a sentence.

Adjectives are ‘big, small, good, bad, beautiful, sour, sweet, red, black, etc….

  • John is a good boy because he follows all the rules in his life.
  • Jessica is beautiful as well as a good girl.
  • I ate a sweet apple in the morning.

Note: we can use an adverb just before a noun/pronoun.

Adverbs are ‘very, so, too, quickly, yesterday, today, slowly, morning, evening, etc…

Yesterday I saw a very big house.

Jessica is a so beautiful girl.

Peter ran too fast yesterday in the evening so he won the race.

Interjection: An interjection is a word that is used to express sudden feelings/emotions in a sentence.

Interjection words are Hurrah! Alas! Wow! Yeah! Oops! Ouch! Sorrow! etc….
