Parts of Speech
Summary
There are 8 parts of speech:
nouns
pronouns
adjectives
verbs
adverbs
prepositions
conjunctions
interjections
Except for interjections, the parts of speech work together,
& you usually have to see how a word is working with other
words to be sure what part of speech it is.
Remember that a word can be one part of speech in a
certain context & another part of speech in a different
context:
I run every day.
I went for a run.
---

noun
