Period 2











  • A noun is a person, place, thing, or idea.
  • There is a difference between common and proper nouns.
  • Common nouns are non capitalized words that refer to a person, place, thing, or idea.
  • Ex: book, sand, cake, etc.
  • Proper nouns are capitalized nouns usually names of things.
  • Ex: Abel, Michael, Rony, Sara, etc.
  • Concrete nouns are nouns that can perceived by one or more of the senses.
    • Ex: poison ivy, clouds, sugar, computer, etc.
  • Abstract nouns are nouns that names an idea, feeling, a quality, or a characteristic.
  • Ex: freedom, well-being, beauty, etc.
  • A pronoun is a word that is used in place of one or more nouns or pronouns.
  • An antecedent is the word or words that the pronoun refer to.
  • Also, personal pronouns refer to the person speaking and is in first person, someone spoken to in second person, or someone spoken about in third person.
  • Ex: I, me, he, they, you, etc.
  • Demonstrative pronouns are used to point out a specific person, place, thing, or idea
  • Ex: this, that, these, those.
  • Interrogative pronouns are words that introduce a question.
  • Ex: who, whom, which, what, whose.


Adjectives are used to describe something in more detail such as to describe the deliciousness of a hamburger. An example that you would put is, this delicious hamburger is amazing when delicious is describing the taste of the burger.

The most frequently used adjectives are are, a, an, and the. These are called Articles. Articles are used in ways such as saying, A hamburger, or A box of fries.

There are also Demonstrative adjectives such as, do you want these French fries, or do you want this hamburger.

It is also wise not to get confused with pronouns and adjectives because they are different in many ways such as when some words are used as pronouns, these words take the place of nouns or other pronouns. When used as adjectives, they modify nouns or pronouns.



A verb is a word that is used to express action or state of being.

All the helping verbs are: is, am, are, was, where, be, being, been, has, have, had, do, does, did, may, might, must, can, could, will, would, shall, should.

Actions verbs are verbs like: run, jump, read, etc.

ex. I ran a mile yesterday for track.

Non-action verbs are like: remember, think, believe, consider, understand, know, etc.

ex. I think I remember what happened at the party.



  • An adverb modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb.
  • Adverbs modifying verbs are found by these questions: where? When? How? To what extent?

Ex: we live there. He arrived early. She quickly agreed. He hardly moved.

  • Adverbs modifying adjectives

ex: Beth did an exceptionallyfine job.

  • Adverbs modifying other adverbs

ex: Calvin was almostnever there



  • A preposition is a word that shows the relationship of a noun or pronoun to another word
  • Some commonly used prepositions are; aboard, about, before, behind, concerned, down, during, except, for, in, of, out, since, through, under, with, and much more.

ex: welcome aboard. The runner fell behind.

  • Some compound prepositions are: according to, as of, in place of, out of, in front of, and many more.

ex: Add a teaspoon of freshly ground cinnamon. (cinnamon is the object of the preposition of)



  • A conjunction is a word that joins words or word groups.
  • A coordinating conjunction joins words or word groups that are used in the same way.
  • An acronym for conjunctions would be
  • F.A.N.B.O.Y.S. (for , and , nor, but , or, yet, so).
  • There are also correlative conjunctions are pairs of conjunctions that join word or word groups. Some examples would be both…and, not only…but also, either…or, whether…or, neither…nor.
  • Some examples of a conjunction would be streets and sidewalks, Both Jim and Carey, Neither Brad nor Pitt went to the movies, Taylor liked Lautner but he also liked Patterson.


Interjections are words that express emotion such as happiness, or sadness, madness, or excitement, disappointment, or even no emotion at all.

Some examples would be Wow! That’s an AWESOME PICTURE!

Woah, that’s a big explosion!

Wowza! Rony is totally AWESOME!

OHHEMMGEE, why is this slide show so creative.

Nice, Rony should get an A+!

Interjections could also be cuss words such as *** or even ****.

Or even the most commonly known would be ***********!!!
