Q

Well, youre about to find out!Have you ever thought to yourself, WHY IN THE WORLD do I need to know the 8 parts of speech?!

Q

English can be tough:English can get confusing because some words could possibly have three different meanings.

However, if you know your parts of speech, you can avoid some of the confusion.

Do you want to be able to understand, analyze, and construct good sentences?

I hope you answered yes because it is essential for you to master the 8 parts of speech.

Im ready to help you in any way possible so lets get started! VERBS!Verbs have TWO important functions:- to put objects into motion- to help clarify objects in meaningful waysVerbs express action; something that a person, animal, or thing can do. If youre having trouble finding a verb in a sentence, just ask yourself, Is this something that a person or thing can do?

verbs8

EXAMPLES!Johnny sneezed so loud that it hurt my ears.** Look for something in the sentence that you can do. Sneezing is something that Johnny can do.2. Sarah always winks at me whenever I pass her in the hallway.

** Again, the doing word in the sentence is winks. Winking is something you are able to do. I played the guitar. Playing the guitaris something I can do.

Q

NOUNS !

Nouns are words that identify the whos, wheres, and whats in the English language.Nouns name people, places, and things. They also often function as the subject of the sentence.A proper noun names a specific, one-of-kind item and is always capitalized. Common nouns identify the general items and are not capitalized.

nouns10

Q

A cake is a common noun because it is a thing but it is not a specific item.Sally really enjoyed those brownies.** Can you see anything specific in that sentence? Sally. Specifically, Sally enjoyed the brownies.

** Brownies are things, so brownies would be the second noun.2. Cody drove his car to New York City.** Keep in mind that there could be more than one type of noun in a sentence. There can also be multiple nouns in one sentence.** Cody is the person, car is the thing, and New York City is the place.EXAMPLES!nouns11

Q

PRONOUNS!

Pronouns are small words that take the place of a noun.If we didnt have pronouns, then our sentence would get repetitive because remember, sentences can have multiple nouns.Pronouns can include any of the following:

I, me, you, he, she, him, her, this, that, these, those, his, hers, them, they, mine, yours, what, which,.. etc.

Instead of repeating peoples names, places, or things, replace it with one of the words listed above. Your sentences will sound so much better!pronouns12

Q

EXAMPLES!

Instead of saying, I ran with my dad, the chef, our cat, and our dog, repeatedly when explaining something, say..

I ran withthem.1. I was talking to her. INSTEAD OF: I was talking Jennifer.2. Jack and Jill are not walking by themselves. INSTEAD OF: Jack and Jill are walking with Tom, Nicole, and Justin.pronouns13

Q

ADJECTIVES!

Adjectives describe nouns!Adjectives answer the following questions: Which one is it? What kind is it? How many are there?Adjectives help give a more vivid mental image for the reader.adjectives14

Q

EXAMPLES!

I am wearing a tall, yellow hat.

** Tall and yellow describe what kind the hat was.Six dogs ran across the street.

** Six tells how many there were.

The students who did not payattention during class failed the quiz.

** Which students failed the quiz? The students who did not pay attention failed the quiz.adjectives15

Q

ADVERBS!

Adverbs specify the meaning of verbs and adjectives.Adverbs adjust the meaning of verbs and adjectives to give a more vivid mental picture.

Adverbs answer: When? Where? Why? How?adverbs16

Q

EXAMPLES!1.

I quickly peeled the banana so I could eat it sooner.

** Quickly describes how I peeled the banana.1. Kelly went to sleep at midnight. ** Midnight answers when Kelly went to sleep.

2. John saw the deer from across the field.** Across answers from where the deer was seen.START ANIMATION!17

Q

PREPOSITIONS!

Prepositions are words that specify locations. They tell where something is.But is sometimes a preposition. If it means the same thing as except in a sentence, then it is a preposition.prepositions18EXAMPLES

Q

I am sitting next to the big yellow hat.

** Next to indicatesthe location of where I am sitting.Katherine put her coffee mug on top of the counter.

** On top indicates the location of Katherines coffee mug.2. Kevin put his book underneath the table.

** Underneath indicates the locationof where Kevin put his book,prepositions19

Q

CONJUCTIONS!

Conjunctions are joiner words. Joiner words connect parts of a sentence.Conjunctions can be any of the following words: and, but, or, yet, for, nor, so.It may be helpful to remember that conjunctions are ALWAYS less than four letters long.conjunctions20

Q

I wanted to get a cookie from the top shelf, but I wasnt tall enough.

** But connects the two potential sentences (each highlighted in a different color), and makes them one.EXAMPLES! 2. I do not wish to buy a new car, nor do I have that kind of money right now. ** Nor connects the first and second part of the sentence. 1. We wanted to go to the basketball game, but Sarah forgot her ticket at home. ** But connects the first and second part of the sentence. conjunctions21

Q

INTERJECTIONS!Interjections are short exclamations like Oh!, Um or Ah! that have no grammatical connection to the sentence.Interjections are more common in speaking than in writing.Er and Um are often used as hesitation devices, meaning they are used when people dont know what to say or to indicate that they are thinking of what to say next.

conjunctions22

Q

EXAMPLES!Oops! I accidentally dropped the can of blue paint on my head!Oops! is the short, one word exclamation that comes before the sentence. 1. Uh, I dont think I know the answer to that question.** Uh is the hesitation device used. The person speaking did not know the answer, or what to say at all.2. Wow! That is a cool ring!

** Wow! is the interjection followed by an exclamation point; It that has no grammatical value.interjections23
