Parts of Speech 1

Certain words cannot function the way certain other words can function. For example we do not say teachering or teachered but teacher or teach. Similarly it is wrong to say ‘instructed manual’. What is correct is ‘instruction manual’. We don’t say ‘boy good’ but ‘good boy’. Thus each word has typical character which restricts its application to different functions of naming, renaming, action, connecting, qualifying etc which we need for expressing or describing.Traditional grammar classifies such functions into 8 types namely: the noun, the pronoun, the verb, the adjective, the determiner (including Quantifiers and Articles whichare considered Adjective), the adverb, the preposition, the conjunction, and the interjection. These functions or parts of speech can be a word or a phrase or a clause.
