The Eight Parts of Speech


Now that you have almost finished first 3 levels of grammar, I want you to think about the eight parts of speech. When you study a language, it helps to label the different parts of a sentence or a question with the following terms:

  1. Nouns
  2. Pronouns
  3. Verbs
  4. Adjectives
  5. Adverbs
  6. Conjunctions
  7. Prepositions
  8. Interjections

This is the classic list of terms that teachers use when talking about the eight parts of speech, but I also like to mention articles as well because they are so important in English. If you still need help understanding what these words do in a sentence, go back to the lessons in which they are explained.

Nouns: These are words that function as subject, objects, and objects of prepositions. A noun is a person, a place, a thing, or an idea.
Pronouns: These are words that can take the place of a noun. Words like “he,” “him,” “his,” and pronouns. It important to know the differences among subject, object, possessive, and reflexive pronouns.
Verbs: These words describe the action or inaction in a sentence. The key to understanding English well is to focus on the way verbs change. You have probably already noticed that most of the lessons here are about verbs and the various tenses in which they are found.
Adjectives: Use adjectives to provide information about nouns. Adjectives describe color, size, degree, depth, quality, etc.
Adverbs: These are words that you use to describe verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs.
Conjunctions: Join ideas and words together with the use of conjunctions. There are many different kinds, but the two basic groups of conjunctions are coordinating and subordinating.
Prepositions: These small yet important words indicate position, location, and relationships.
Interjections: One-word responses and exclamations are interjections. these are words such as “wow,” “hey,” and “yeah.” This is the least important among the eight parts of speech. It’s much more important, for instance, to learn about articles.

Articles: a, an, the
