We look at the building blocks of the English language: words. Every word belongs to one category or another, and sometimes more than one category. We call these categories parts of speech. There are 9 basic parts of speech: nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, determiners, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. We talk about them one by one, with plenty of examples for using them in everyday life.
