Parts of speech with examples

Part of speech is a term used in English grammar to describe one of the eight main categories into which words are grouped based on their roles in sentences, such as nouns and verbs. These are the basic blocks of grammar, also known as word classes.

There are eight components of speech that can be divided into:


• pronouns

• verbs

• adjectives

• adverbs

• prepositions

• conjunctions

• interactions

Depending on context and usage, certain words can be classified as multiple parts of speech.

• Interjections can stand alone and compose full phrases.

Every English phrase you write or say contains words from one of the eight components of speech. Nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions,  and interjections all fall into this category.


A noun is a word used to name a person place thing or idea.
