THEORETICAL FRAMEWORKS
The Eight Parts of Speech
Traditional grammar classifies words based on eight parts of speech. These are
the words that you use to make a sentence. Each part of speech explains not
what the word is, but how the word is used. In fact, the same word can be a
noun in one sentence and a verb or adjective in the next.
For example …
Definition …
a chair
the effect
happiness
work
have
be
seems
sexy
blue
names a person, place, thing
or concept
An adverb
badly, …
very
too
adds information about an
action or a situation, and
modifies the adjective
A preposition
to
under
on
Ouch!
a small word that describes
direction
A conjunction
and
because
links words, phrases and
sentences
A pronoun
she
its (no apostrophe!)
his
takes the place of a noun
A noun
A verb
An adjective
An interjection
describes what someone or
something does; states and
feelings
describes people or things
adds emphasis and emotion
Remember, you can tell a word by the company it keeps.
