I learnt that parts of speech are English words catagorised into 8 or 9 different kinds of words. the different parts of speech are. Nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
Nouns are things that you can talk about. Like places, ideas, or objects. For example. The cat; cat is the noun because it can be talked about.
Verbs are actions. They can be actions of thought, actions of movement, or actions of being. For example. The cat yawned; Yawned is the noun because it is an action of movement.
Adjectives are things that describe nouns and add a quality. For example. The fluffy cat yawned; Fluffy is the adjective because it describes the quality of the cat.
Adverbs are words that describe verbs, and also add a quality. For example. The fluffy cat yawned slowly; slowly is the adverb because it describes how the cat yawned.
the parts of speech are the ways words are used in a sentence.
