The parts of speech are the words you use in any sentence and that serve a function in that sentence. Needless to say, to become a better writer and speaker, you should have an idea about parts of speech. For a general guide on what these are, continue reading.

The Basic Parts of Speech

Nouns

Nouns can be the person, idea, thing, place, living thing, occurrence, or trait in the sentence. They can be common, proper, abstract, concrete, mass, countable, collective, or compound.

Verbs

A verb denotes action, a state of being, or an event. Verbs can be conjugated to express a tense, such as the past, present, or future.

Adjectives

Adjectives provide more information on the noun or pronoun (they modify, describe, and qualify them). They can answer the questions: what kind? which one? how much? and how many? etc.

Adverbs

Adverbs share more information on the verb and/or verb phrase (such as the frequency, degree, manner, time, and more, in which something takes place).

Pronouns

Pronouns can take the place of some nouns and can be divided into different categories: subject, object, possessive, demonstrative, and possessive adjectives.

Prepositions

To specify the place, position, direction, or time that a noun/noun phrase is in, in relation to other nouns in a sentence, you use a preposition.

Conjunctions

Conjunctions are a group of words that connect ideas, words, phrases, sentences, and more. A few of the most commonly used conjunctions are: and, but, if, and because.

Interjections

Interjections are used to communicate a specific sentiment or emotion. Examples of interjections are: ooh, yay, yes, congratulations, hi, and bye.
