This lesson is all about parts of speech. Every word belongs to a word class also known as a part of speech. Parts of speech summarize the way in which a word can be used grammatically. The major parts of speech for English are noun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, determiner, pronoun, and conjunction. Some words can be more than one part of speech depending on how they are used. If you look up a word in a dictionary, it will tell you what part of speech it is. For example, the word ‘scare’ is a verb or a noun depending on how it's used. The word ‘the’ is a determiner. The word ‘they’ is a pronoun. You can see a few different parts of speech in this sentence. How many can you find? A large cat prowled slowly through the neighborhood.
