VERBS!

Verbs have TWOimportant functions:

- to put objects into motion

- to help clarifyobjects in meaningful ways

If you’re having trouble finding a verb in a sentence, just ask yourself, “Is this something that a person or thing can do?”

Verbs express action; something that a person, animal, or thing can do.


Are you ready to learn the 8 parts of speech

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 guitar

is something

I can do.”


Are you ready to learn the 8 parts of speech

NOUNS !

Nouns are words that identify the whos, wheres, and whatsin the English language.

Nouns name people, places, and things. They also often function as the subject of the sentence.

A propernoun names a specific, one-of-kind item and is always capitalized. Commonnouns identify the general items and are not capitalized.

Q


Are you ready to learn the 8 parts of speech

EXAMPLES!

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.

A cake is a common noun because it is a

thing but it is not a

specific item.

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.

Q


Are you ready to learn the 8 parts of speech

PRONOUNS!

Pronouns are small words that take the place of a noun.

Q

If we didn’t 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 people’s names, places, or things, replace it with one of the words listed above. Your sentences will sound so much better!


Are you ready to learn the 8 parts of speech

EXAMPLES!

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.

Instead of saying, “I ran with my dad,

the chef, our cat, andour dog”,

repeatedly when explaining

something, say..

“I ran with

them”.

Q

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.

and adjectives.

Adverbs adjust the meaning of

verbs and adjectives to give a

more vivid mental picture.

Adverbs answer: When? Where?

Why? How?

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.

of the counter.

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 don’t know what to say or to

indicate that they are thinking of what

to say next.

“Oops! I accidentally dropped the can of blue paint on my head!”

1. “Uh, I don’t think I know the answer to that question.”

** “Uh” is the hesitationdeviceused. The person speaking did not know the answer, or what to say at all.

“Oops!” is the short, one word exclamation that comes before the sentence.

2. “Wow! That is a cool ring!”
