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

How do I add the Copyright, Registered and Trademark characters in my WordPress blog?

When I was scribbling my previous post, I stumbled upon the need to add the Registered Trademark symbol (®). It took me some time to figure out how to add special symbols such as Copyright (©) in a WordPress blog.

To make life simpler for other blog writers, here is the method I use to add special symbols.

  • Choose ‘HTML’ on the right hand top corner of the blog editor as shown below.

  • Move the cursor to the position where the required symbol is to be inserted.
  • Taking into reference the table (ISO 8859-1 Symbols) listed below, add ‘HTML Tag’ that corresponds to the symbol in question.
