Grade 1 - English Language
3.3 Parts Of Speech

Grammar deals with rules of a language. In English language, parts of speech refer to the following: noun, pronoun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, conjunction, and interjection.

A noun is a naming word. It names a person, place, thing, idea, living creature, quality, or action.
Examples: tree, city, train

A verb is a word which describes an action (doing something) or a state (being something).
Examples: walk, eat, think, is

An adjective is a word that describes a noun. It tells something about the noun.
Examples: brave, large, yellow, beautiful

An adverb is a word which usually describes a verb. It tells you how something is done. It may also tell you when or where something happened.
Examples: slowly, quickly, well, yesterday, tomorrow, here, everywhere

A pronoun is used instead of a noun, to avoid repeating the noun.
Examples: I, you, he, she, it, we, they

A conjunction joins two words, phrases or sentences together.
Examples: but, so, and, because, or

A preposition usually comes before a noun, pronoun or noun phrase. It joins the noun to some other part of the sentence.
Examples: on, in, by, with, under, through, at

An interjection is an unusual kind of word, because it often stands alone. Interjections are words which express emotion or surprise, and they are usually followed by exclamation marks.
Examples: Ouch!, Hello!, Hurray!, Oh no!, Ha!
