Parts of Speech

Parts of speech are the classification of words categorized by their roles and functions within the structure of the language.

Parts of speech encompass everything a language has in itself. Can you imagine all the words of a language can be sorted into these categories? They play different roles in the structure of a language.In English, there are eight parts of speech:

  • Noun
  • Pronoun
  • Verb
  • Adjective
  • Adverb
  • Preposition
  • Conjunction
  • Interjection


Noun refers to people, places, things, ideas, concepts, etc.

Example: Riyan is a clever student.  Sydney is the beautiful city.


A pronoun is used to refer to a noun/noun phrase, or nouns/noun phrases; instead of the repeated use of the same noun(s)/noun phrase(s).

Example: Riyan is a smart student. He studies diligently.


Verb shows an action or an ongoing condition. It is considered as the heart of a sentence.

Example: Ronald is kind person. Everyone likes him.


Adjective modifies or describes noun in a sentence.

Example: Dina is beautiful actrees. She can also sing a song well.


Adverbs modify or describe adjectives, verbs, or other adverbs. It answers the questions When? Where? How? or How much?

Example: Ronal can run fast.  He always reads attentively.


Preposition gives context to nouns in relationship to other nouns or pronouns.

Example: We will go to France. France is great country.


A conjunction connects nouns, noun phrases, clauses or sentences together.

Example: Shinta loves chocolate and chips. She loves pasta, but she hates pizza.


Interjections are brief and abrupt pauses in speech, usually used for expressing emotions.

Example: Oh! That feels terrible. Alas! They have lost the match.
