• The eights parts of speech make the list,
  • Into which every word fits; none is missed;
  • Noun, pronoun, adjective, verb,
  • Adverb, preposition, conjunction, exclamation/interjection – superb!
  • The eight parts of speech – get the gist?

Speech can be broken down into eight parts of speech, so that every word in the dictionary can be assigned to one part of Speech.

This is a great attribute, for it means that all the hundreds of thousands of words in a language can be reduced to be counted in one of only eight parts of Speech.

And these parts of Speech, moreover, permit one to construct meaning in language by systematically building meaningful constructions, by which we can understand one another. What an incredible thing! It is this grammatical construction in speech that permits us, humans, to compose extended meaning in our communication; much more than what we know of animal vocal communication.

The eight parts of speech are

  • Nouns
  • Pronouns
  • Adjectives
  • Verbs
  • Adverbs
  • Prepositions
  • Conjunctions
  • Exclamations/ Interjections

In the sentence, “Hey, the man and she quickly go for a walk,” “Hey” is an exclamation/interjection, “the” is an adjective, “man” is a noun, “and” is a conjunction, “she” is a pronoun, “quickly,” is an adverb, “go” is a verb, “for” is a preposition, “a” is another adjective, “walk” is here a noun.

The eight parts of speech are a wonderful, logical analysis of our speech and its patterns.

Learn your eight parts of Speech! They are such a useful guide to learning and KNOWING Grammar. They are an indispensable tool for learning Grammar and Speech per se.

Speech is, with a few exceptions, a natural and organic plant. Even in this present day of false and deceptively intoxicating existence of appearance without substance, language remains mostly true to its substantive yet, unknowable birth and youth. Only because of its false guardians does it stray from truth in its main representation, but the world conspiracy against honesty, truth, goodness and beauty is coming to an end. Honesty, truth, goodness and beauty are on the way back to take their rightful place as the vanguard of endeavour, the helsman of accomplishment and the boatswain of the politic.
