Parts of Speech 

Parts of speech shows the different roles or the functions of words in a sentence. 

There are eight parts of speech in English.  

They are: 

  1. Noun 
  1. Pronoun 
  1. Verb 
  1. Adjective 
  1. Adverb 
  1. Preposition 
  1. Conjunction 
  1. Interjection 


A noun is a naming word. It is a place, person or thing. 

For example: chair, California, John, dogs 

  • John is from Brazil. 
    John and Brazil are nouns. 


A word replacing a noun to avoid repetition is called a pronoun.   


For example: I, you, we, he, she, it, they 

  • Robert is sick. He went to the doctor.  
    “He” is the pronoun. “He” is used instead of Robert. 


Verbs are action words. 

Verbs show what someone does. 

For example: walk, see, think 

  • My mother makes tasty pancakes. 
    Here, makes is the action. It is the verb. 


An adjective describes a noun or pronoun. 


For example: good, bad, green, tall, short 

  • This is a beautiful garden. 
    Here, “beautiful” describes the noun, garden.
