THE PARTS
OF SPEECH
THE PARTS OF
SPEECH
There are mainly eight parts of speech in English
language. That are Nouns, Pronouns, Verbs,
Adjectives, Adverbs, Conjuctions, Interjections, and
Preposition.
Parts os speech are identified by te place they have in
the sentece, not by their meaning.
NOUNS
A noun is a person, place, thing, or an idea. Nouns are
the subject of a sentence.
a teacher a lion Ali
Love is a beautiful
thing.
CLASSIFICATION OF
NOUNS
Nouns can be singular or plural.
Singular noun name only one person, place, thing or
idea ( an apple, the car, a table).
Plural noun name two or more person, places, things
or ideas.
PROPER AND
COMMON NOUNS
Proper nouns refer to specific persons, places, things
or ideas. they are always capitalized ( Holy Quran,
Lahore, Minar-e-Pakistan).
Common nouns are all other nouns. They are not
capitalized unless they are the first worn in the
sentence.
Example: cat, pencil, paper etc.
COLLECTIVE NOUNS
Collective nouns are the nouns that are
grammatically considered singular, but include more
than one person, place, thing or idea in their
meaning. They emphasize group as one unit.
family herd class
ABSTRACT AND
CONCRETE NOUNS
Concrete nouns are nouns that can touch. They are
people, places and something. Person, court, pencil,
hand, paper are concrete nouns.
Abstract nouns are nouns that you cannot touch.
Things like air, justice, safety democracy, faith,
religion, are abstract nouns.
NOUNS ARE GERUNDS
A gerund is an -ing form of the verb and is used as a
noun. For example:
My crying upset her.
Running is good for you,
Running is the noun/gerund and "is" is the verb.
Crying is the subject and upset is the verb.
PRONOUNS
A pronouns is a word that replaces a noun. They
eliminate the need for repetition.
For example:
Instead of talkng "Hina talked to Hina's child", we
might say "Hina talked to her child".
Here "her" is the pronoun. It renames 'Hina'.
TYPES OF PRONOUNS
There are several types of pronouns.
Personal Pronouns: They are refer to specific persons
or things. Personal Pronouns can act as subject,
objects or possessives.
Personal Pronouns can be singular or plural.
Singular: I, me, you, she, her, he, him, it
Plural: we. us, you, they, them
POSSESSIVES AND
REFLEXIVE PRONOUNS
Possessives Pronouns indicates ownership or
possession. For example: my, mine, your, yours, his,
hers, its, ours, theirs.
Reflexive Pronouns name a receiver of an action who
is identical to the doer of the action. For example:
myself, yourself, himself, itself, ourselves, yourselves.
Ahmad congratulated himself on his good grades.
INTENSIVE AND
RECIPROCAL PRONOUNS
Intensve Pronouns emphasize a noun or another
pronoun. For example: myself, himself, yourself,
herself, themselves. I saw Imran Khan himself in the
ground.
Reciprocal Pronouns express shared actions or
feelings.
For example: each other, one another Maria and Saba
help each other in their homework.
INDEFINITE AND
DEMOSTRATIVE PRONOUNS
Indefinite Pronouns refer to non- specific persons and
things. For example: all, another, other, anyone, both,
each, etc.
Nobody knows that where is the pencil.
Demonstrative Pronouns are considered noun
markers. They “point” toward nouns.
That woman attends the party.
This is a wonderful story.
INTERROGATIVE AND
RELATIVE PRONOUNS
Interrogative Pronouns introduce questions.
Who is going on vacation?
Relative pronouns introduce dependent clauses and
refers to a person or thing already mentioned in a
sentence. ( who, whoever, whom ,that, whose, which)
The English that we learn in class will help us pass
the exam.
ADJECTIVES
An adjective modifies(describes) a noun or pronoun.
Normally in English adjective comes before noun. For
example: The smart student earned an “A”.
They also come after linking verbs.
For Example: I feel happy.
CONTINUE......
Adjectives can be used to make
comparisons(between two things).
For more adjectives with one or two syllables, you can
add –er. For example: greater, faster, longer.
For adjectives longer than two syllables, you should
use the word “more”. He was more intelligent then his
sister.
CONTINUE......
There are some irregular adjective and verb forms.
Adjective Adverb Comparing two Comparing three or
more bad badly worse worst good well better best
little - less least much many more most
CONTINUE......
If three or more adjectives come in a sentence, the
arrangement of them will be like: Determi- ner
Opinion Size Age Color Origin Material Noun The, This
Pretty Big New Blue Blochi Leather bag My Precious
Small Ancient Black Chinese Silk Scarf
ADVERB
An adverb is a word that modifies an action verb, an
adjective or another adverb.
You need an adjective after linking verbs, not an
adverb.
The teacher carefully graded the homework.
TYPES OF ADVERBS
Adverbs of Manner tell us that in which manner the
action occurs or how the action occurs or will occur.
She speaks loudly.
He was driving slowly.
Adverbs of time tell us about the time of the action.
I will buy a computer tomorrow.
Do it now.
CONTINUE......
Adverbs of Place tell us about the place of the action.
He will come here.
She went upstairs.
Adverbs of Frequency tell us how many times the
action occur.
He goes to school daily.
He is always late for school.
CONJUNCTIONS
These are the scotch tape of the grammatical world.
They join together words and phrases.
There are three types of conjunctions:
Coordinating Conjunctions
Correlative Conjunctions
Subordinating Conjunctions
CONJUNCTIONS
There are seven Coordinating Conjunctions: for, and,
nor, but, or, yet, so Fahad likes to eat but Zohaib likes
to play.
You can remember these conjunctions by “FANBOYS”
CONTINUE.....
Correlative Conjunctions also join ideas, but they
work in pairs.
(Both…and, neither…nor, whether…or, either…or, not
only…but also)
Not only I am happy about the grades, but I am also
excited that you are learning.
CONTINUE.....
Subordinating conjunctions join an independent
clause with a subordinate clause. That is, they join a
clause that can stand alone with the clause that
cannot stand alone. (after, although, as, as if, because,
before, even if, even before, if, since, unless) etc.
Although the students were tired, they still come in
the class.
INTERJECTIONS
Interjections are words used to express emotional
states.
They are usually found in spoken English.
Oh! Wow! Ouch! Oops! Hey!
PREPOSITIONS
Prepositions are words that, like conjunctions, join a
noun or pronoun to another word in a sentence.
Some prepositions are: About, before, down, into
through, above, behind, during, like, to, across, below,
except, toward, after, beneath, of, for, off, under,
among, beside, from, on, up, around, between etc.
VERBS
Verbs generally express action or a state of being.
There are several classification for verbs- action verbs/
linking verbs/ main verbs/ auxiliary verbs, transitive/
intransitive verbs and phrasal verbs.
Action verbs show action.
He runs.
He plays.
CONTINUE.....
Linking verbs link a subject to an adjective.
Butterfly is beautiful.
Main verbs can stand alone.
Run, eat, work
Auxiliary verbs, also called helping verbs, serve as
support to the main verbs( Have, has, had, do, does,
did, be, am, is, are, was, were, been, being, should,
could, would, will, might, can, may, must ,ought(to),
shall).
CONTINUE.....
Transitive verbs need a direct object in order to make
sense.
Shaheer takes medicine for his headache.
Intransitive verbs do not need direct objects to make
them meaningful.
Hanzala swims.
Phrasal verbs are made up of a verb and a
preposition. The preposition gives the verb a different
meaning.
CONTINUE.....
For example verb “look” has a different meaning from
the phrasal verb “look up”.
Some examples are:
THANK YOU!!
