What are the parts of speech in English?
We look at the eight parts of speech in traditional English grammar.
These parts of speech, sometimes called word classes, include:
Nouns, Pronouns, Adjectives, Verbs, Adverbs, Prepositions, Conjunctions, and Interjections.
We give an explanation of how each word class is used and have included example sentences. For some of the parts of speech we also look at sub-classes such as subject pronouns and possessive pronouns, the different types of adverbs such as adverbs of manner, adverbs of frequency, etc.
In the final section, after we give a summary chart, we talk about how some teachers sometimes include a 9th part of speech which can be either Articles or Determiners. Again, we include examples.
This English lesson is ideal to give students a general overview of the different parts of speech in English and what they do.
