English Grammar – What are ‘Parts of Speech’?

English is a extremely beautiful and flexible language. A word meaning is derived from how it is used in a sentence along with it’s spelling and pronounciation.

Several words are put together to form a sentence which has certain meaning. This sentence can be termed as a speech. Hence, the words in the sentence form the parts of the speech.

The parts of speech are classified into eight types, namely:

  1. Adjectives
  2. Adverbs
  3. Conjunctions
  4. Interjections
  5. Nouns
  6. Prepositions
  7. Pronouns
  8. Verbs
