|The eight parts of speech are: Noun, Adjective, Pronouns, Verb, Adverb, Preposition, Conjunction, and Interjection.
1. Nouns: Naming words are called nouns. Nouns can be the names of persons, places, animals and things.
2. Verbs: Doing or action words are called verbs.
3. Pronoun: Words used instead of nouns are called pronouns.
4. Adjective: Describing words are called adjectives. They describe a noun.
5. Adverbs: Words that describe verbs or adjectives are called adverbs.
6. Prepositions: Position words are called prepositions. A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition. The preposition usually indicates the temporal, spatial, or logical relationship of its object to the rest of the sentence.
7. Conjunction: Joining words are called conjunction.
8. Interjections: Interjections are words used for showing surprise or any other strong feeling.
