What is Parts of Speech?

Each meaningful words used in a sentence is called a Part of Speech. What are the 8 parts of speech?

The Eight Parts of Speech are-

1. Nouns: A noun is a word used to name something: a person/animal, a place, a thing, or an idea. For example, all of the following are nouns.
2. Pronouns: A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun. It helps us to avoid repetitions. 
For example, Instead of Eva talked to Eva's child, you might say Eva talked to her child. Her is the pronoun. It refers to the noun, Eva.
3. Adjectives: An adjective modifies (describes) a noun or pronoun. Usually, in English, the adjective comes before the noun. For example, The smart student earned an 'A'. Adjectives also come after linking verbs. For example, I feel happy.

4. Verbs: Verbs generally express an action or a state of being. There are several classifications for verbs.
1. Action verbs
2. Linking verbs
3. Main verbs
4. Auxiliary verbs
5. Transitive
6. Intransitive and
7. Phrasal verbs
For example: Action verbs show action. He runs. She plays. They study. Linking verbs link the subject to an adjective or a noun. Martin is intelligent. He is a teacher. Here the linking verbs connect the adjective (intelligent) or a noun (teacher) with the subject.

5. Adverbs: An adverb is a word that modifies a verb, an adjective or another adverb. The teacher carefully checks the homework. (Here carefully is an adverb that modifies the verb check.)
Examples: Tom was extremely enthusiastic about doing his homework. (Here extremely is an adverb that modifies the adjective enthusiastic.) Masha ran out of the classroom very quickly. (Here very is an adverb that modifies the adverb quickly.)
6. Prepositions: Prepositions are words that connect a noun or pronoun to another word in a sentence. Some common prepositions are on, in, at, into, by, up, with, about, for, to, though etc.
7. Conjunctions: Conjunctions join together words, Phrases and Clauses.

Examples: He and his brother will come. (words) He came to the class and started teaching.(Clauses) It is easy to say but difficult to do. (Phrases) She is intelligent; therefore, she does not need too much help. (Clauses)
8. Interjections: Interjections are words used to express emotional states. They can usually be found in narrative writing, interviews, and spoken English. They can stand alone.

Examples: Oh!, Wow!, Ouch! Oops! Hey! They can also be used in a Phrase or Sentence.
Examples: What a lovely day! How strong the man is! The same word as different parts of speech Remembers that the same word can be used as different parts of speech. Its function in the sentence will help you to determine the part of speech. Look at the following sentences and notice the functions of the word 'well' in each of the sentences:
1. He does not look well. (Adjective)
2. The student did well in the test. (Adverb)
3. Well, I don't know about that. (Interjection)
