Grammatical Wednesdays – Eight Parts of Speech

Several weeks ago I wrote about a sentence requires a subject and a predicate.  A week after that I also noted  “a sentence must have a verb but the verb can also be a predicate.”  However, today I want to briefly list the eight parts of speech:  the verb, the noun, the pronoun, the adjective, the adverb, the preposition, the conjunction, and the interjection.

Parts of speech defines how words are being used.  In my next post I will discuss how words can work as a noun in one sentence, and how that same word can be used as a verb or even an adjective in a different sentence structure.
