I learned many things about Parts of Speech from this unit. First, there were nouns. These are divided into different types, including common (no capital letters), proper (names), compound (2+ nouns joined), abstract (idea), and collective (group). These nouns can be countable (can be proceeded by `a`/`an` or plural), or uncountable (cannot be proceeded by `a`/`an` or plural). Next, I read about Adjectives. These should be in a specific order (size, age, color, material, and finally material). The two types are Comparatives (er) and Superlatives (est). I found it interesting that Adjectives were proceeded by `more` (comparatives) or `most` (superlatives) if the adjective was 3+ syllables. Then I learned about Articles. This includes definite articles (proceeded by `the`) and indefinite articles (proceeded by `a`/`an`). Definite articles refer to a specific/particular member of a group and can be used with names, global points, physical areas, or geographic landmarks. Indefinite articles on the other hand refer to any member of a group and are only used with singular nouns. In addition, I read about verbs. I previously was unaware that these were divided into Transitive (followed by an object) and Intransitive (cannot be followed by an object) verbs. Verbs come in various forms, such as base, past simpole, past particle, and present particle. On top of all of this, there are Auxiliary Verbs (be/do/have) that combine with other verbs to help form a sentence but NOT carry the meaning. I also learned about adverbs, which usually modify a verb. There are many different types, but the main five are manner, place time, degree, and frequency. Oftentimes adverbs can be formed by adding a `ly` to an adjective. Adverbs are placed after intransitive verbs, and between a subject and transitive verb. If there are multiple adverbs, they should be ordered by place, manner, and finally time. Finally, I learned about Gerunds, Pronouns, Prepositions, and Conjunctions. Gerunds are the -ing form of a verb that make it a noun. Pronouns are general nouns. There are Personal (I/me), Posessive (Mine), Reflexive (myself), and Relative pronouns (who). Prepositions show the relation between the (pro)noun and other words. Pronounds can refer to place, time, or movement. Conjunctions connect words or clauses in a sentence (and, but, as, since). Parts of Speech are the foundation of English. Without Parts of Speech, it is impossible to form a sentence and communicate in English.
