...things you can see or touch (e.g., tree, cloud) Non-countable nouns (mass nouns) – things you cannot count (e.g., food, music) Gender-specific nouns – words which are definitely male or female (e.g., vixen, actress) Verbal nouns – nouns derived from verbs (e.g., a building, an attack) Gerunds – nouns that represent actions (e.g., running fast, guessing a number) Proper Nouns A proper noun is the name of a person, place or thing (i.e., its own name). A proper noun always starts with a capital letter. Examples:         Michael Africa Peking Dayton Peace Accord United Nations The Tower of London Uncle George (Uncle is written with a capital letter because it is part of his name.) My favourite auntie is Auntie Sally. (In this example, the first auntie is a common noun, but the second Auntie is part of a proper noun.)  The Red Lion See also: Capital Letters for Proprer Nouns but Not Common Nouns Collective Nouns A collective noun is the word used for a group of people or things.

...English words have been traditionally classified into eight lexical categories, or parts of speech (and are still done so in most dictionaries): Noun any abstract or concrete entity; a person (police officer, Michael), place (coastline, London), thing (necktie, television), idea (happiness), or quality (bravery) Pronoun any substitute for a noun or noun phrase Adjective any qualifier of a noun Verb any action (walk), occurrence (happen), or state of being (be) Adverb any qualifier of an adjective, verb, clause, sentence, or other adverb Preposition any establisher of relation and syntactic context Conjunction any syntactic connector Interjection any emotional greeting (or "exclamation") Although these are the traditional eight English parts of speech, modern linguists have been able to classify English words into even more specific categories and sub-categories based on function. The four main parts of speech in English, namely nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs, are labelled form classes as well. This is because prototypical members of each class share the ability to change their form by accepting derivational or inflectional morphemes. The term form is used because it refers literally to the similarities in shape of the word in its pronunciation and spelling for each part of speech.[10] Neither written nor spoken English generally marks words as belonging to one part of speech or another, as they tend to be understood in the context of the sentence.......

...Handy Handouts ® Free, educational handouts for teachers and parents* Number 294 Parts of Speech ( That’s a Noun!) by Rynette R. Kjesbo, M.S., CCC-SLP What Are “Parts of Speech?” Every word in the English language can be put into a category based on the function of the word in a sentence. The categories that words are put in are “parts of speech” or “word classes.” Knowing the parts of speech and their purpose helps us to understand sentences and create sentences that make sense. What Are the Different Parts of Speech? There are eight main parts of speech. They are represented in the following example: “Uh-oh! Sara pulled the jammed switch forcefully and it broke off in her hand!” • Noun – A noun is a word that names a person, place, or thing. Nouns can be proper nouns or common nouns. A proper noun refers to a specific person, place, or thing and is always capitalized. A common noun refers to a general person, place, or thing. “Sara,” “switch,” and “hand” are the nouns in our example sentence. “Sara” is a proper noun because it refers to a specific person. Other examples of nouns include David (proper noun), sister, Vermont (another proper noun), store, truck, and pen. • Pronoun – A pronoun takes the place of a noun. Pronouns typically refer back to nouns that are mentioned earlier. In our example sentence, “it” takes the place of “switch,” while “her” refers to “Sara.” Other examples of pronouns include me, him, our, I, you,......

...ADJECTIVE * There are 2 places where we can use an adjective: * Before a noun Ex: She is a beautiful girl That is good tea * After a linking verb (some linking verbs are: appear, be, become, feel, get, look, stay,…) Ex: My computer is old I feel happy so much * We can put a word like very or quite before adjective. (They are adverbs of degree) Ex: This is a very good idea Today, weather is quite cold * Adjectives used in one position only * We can use most adj in both position – before a noun or after linking verb. But a few adj can go in one position but not in the other. Ex: Be careful crossing the main road can only go before a noun The only problem is I’ve got no money Some more examples are: chief (=main), elder (=older), inner, outdoor,… At last the baby is asleep I’m really pleased to see you can only go after linking verb Some more examples are: afraid, alone, ashamed, awake, glad, well, alive,… * We can use more than one adjective before a noun. There is usually one correct order. Ex: Nack has got a big white dog * Adjectives and nouns We sometimes use two nouns together Ex: a plastic box a TV program Here we ues plastic like an adjective, to discibe the box. When we use another adjective as empty, it comes before both the nouns a empty plastic box a good TV program * Word order GROUP | EXAMPLES | | 1. Opinion (how good?) 2.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

...* "[O]ne of the functions of phonetic stress is to make words understandable. This kind of stress, known as word-level stress, is actually part of a word's pronunciation. It may also serve to differentiate words that are similar. For example, We're going to record a record, the two similar words are stressed differently so that the first record is stressed on the second syllable (vowel reduction in the first syllable also assists in helping us to assign stress to the second syllable), whereas the second record is stressed on the first syllable (with vowel reduction in the second syllable). All words of more than one syllable have a prominent or stressed syllable. If we pronounce a word with appropriate stress, people will understand us; if we use the wrong stress placement, we run the risk of being misunderstood. "Phrase or sentence stress is tied to meaning, and this is the second function of stress. As we focus a camera on some item of interest, phonetic stress helps us focus our listener's attention on what is most important in our message." (Harold T. Edwards, Applied Phonetics: The Sounds of American English, 3rd ed. Thomson, 2003) * "Stresses tend to recur at regular intervals. But the sound pattern of English does not make it an overriding necessity to adjust the lengths of syllables so as to enforce complete regularity. The interval between stresses is affected by the number of syllables within the stress group, by the number and type of vowels and......
