Learning English Language : Part of Speech.

Assalamualaikum WBT,

How do you do everyone?

When someone ask you,

"what is Part of Speech?"

What would you answer? What would be your answer to that question?

Well, if its for me, my answer would be part of speech is a category of words. Well, to be honest, POS is the formal term of English grammar. It is actually what we have been learning all this while, imagine that. I have been posting and writing the same exact materials, but it does not mean that we were wrong, no! It is just that we happened to have the alternative terms on the same things. Lovely isn't?

Okay, fine, we have 8 types of Part of Speech. So? what are they? What are the part of speech ?

- Noun
- Pronoun
- Verb
- Adverb
- Adjective
- Preposition
- Conjunction
- Interjection

These are the part of speeches, but you already know most of these part of speeches right?

Noun : name of thing or person
Pronoun : replace for noun
Verb : action or state
Adverb : describe a verb, adjective or adverb
Preposition : links a noun to another word
Conjunction : joins clauses or sentences or words
Interjection : short exclamation, sometimes inserted into a sentence

Now, I will be giving a few examples on conjunction and interjection because all the others are very easy already, right?

Examples of  :

Conjunction : I love my cats AND dogs.

Interjection : Ouch! That hurts.

Now, that is easy right? now you know what Part of Speech is. Lovely.

Assalamualaikum WBT

p/s: Piece of cake indeed.
