Parts of speech

There are eight parts of speech

  • verb
  • noun
  • adjective
  • adverb
  • pronoun
  • interjection
  • conjunction
  • preposition

These parts of speech allow us to structure a grammatically correct sentence, as each has a different function within a sentence. Let’s examine each of the 8 parts of speech.


The verb is one of the 8 parts of speech; it describes an action or experience. For example:

  • Play
  • Read
  • Cook
  • Bake
  • Comprehend

Now you can see a couple of examples:

Sara finished her assignment on time to avoid any complications.

This statement contains two verbs: finished and Avoid

Ahmed secured the highest marks in his final exams.

The verb in this sentence is secured.


A noun names a person, place, thing, or idea; for example,

  • House
  • Mother
  • Woman
  • Elephant
  • Pacific Ocean

Let’s understand through a few examples:

My mother is a lovely person

The noun in this sentence is mother.

Jim went to the market to buy a table.

There are three nouns in this sentence. The first noun is ‘Jim’ because it’s a person’s name. The second noun is ‘market’ because it is the name of a place. The third noun is ‘table’ because it is the name of an object.


The next on the list is an adjective. An adjective describes a noun or a pronoun. For example,

  • Tall
  • Pretty
  • Intelligent
  • Delicious

Fatima owns a modern car with exceptional features.

The adjectives in this sentence are modern and exceptional because they describe Fatima’s car.


Up next, we have an adverb. An adverb describes a verb, an adjective, or an adverb. The adverb tells us how, where, and when an action occurs. For example:

  • Gradually
  • Yesterday
  • Elegantly
  • Soon

She is always late for the office.

The adverb in this sentence is always. It is also important to note that late is an adverb and an adjective.


Let’s understand the use of a pronoun. A pronoun is used to replace the name of a person, place, thing, or idea in a sentence. For example

  • I
  • She
  • Our
  • They
  • It

Bob is a loyal companion. He always helps me with my work.

The pronoun in this sentence is “he.”

They have invited me to the wedding.

The pronoun in this sentence is “they.”


An interjection is used to express strong emotion and is often followed by an exclamation mark, for example, Wow, oh, hey, oops

Here we have some examples:

Wow, your performance is absolutely amazing!

The interjection in this sentence is wow.

Hey, it has been a while since I last saw you.

The interjection in this sentence is hey.


The conjunction connects words, phrases, or clauses in a sentence. For example

  • Because
  • And
  • But
  • Although

She didn’t go to school because she was unwell.

The conjunction in this sentence is because.

Although it was raining, I decided to go for a run in the park.

The conjunction in this sentence is although.


Prepositions describe the place, time, or direction. It is used before a noun or pronoun

For example

  • Behind
  • Above
  • In
  • Over

The cat jumped over the fence.

The preposition in this sentence is over.

The cat is behind the couch.

The preposition in this sentence is behind.
