The parts of speech are the jobs that words can do.
  • noun
  • pronoun
  • preposition
  • adverb
  • adjective
  • conjunction
  • verb
  • interjection

A noun is the name given to a person, place, object, or idea. It is the subject of any regular sentence. Examples- girl, town, clock
A pronoun replaces a noun, so the noun isn't overused. "Child" could be replaced with "he" or "she." "Clock" or "town" could be replaced with "it."
A preposition usually refers to location of a noun in relation to another noun. Examples- Under, over, in, out
An adverb describes modifies another part of speech other than a noun, and many end in -ly. It modifies by describing. Examples- Sluggishly, quickly, quite
An adjective describes a feature a noun has. Examples- Creepy, boring, bright
A conjunction is used to connect two clauses with a comma before it. Instead of having "It was fun. I wanted to do it again." the two sentences could be connected with "and" to say "It was fun, and I wanted to do it again." Examples- And, but, or, nevertheless, however
A verb shows action, state of being, or occurrence that a noun carries out or is in. Examples- Throw, was, is
An interjection shows strong emotion, and is usually said in dialogue. Examples- Hey, ouch, hurray
