Let us review the Eight Parts of Speech:
Each part of speech explains not what the word is, but how the word is used.
A word’s part of speech can change from one sentence to the next. In fact, the same word can be a noun in one sentence and a verb or adjective in the next. The next section provides some examples to help you better understand the concepts of grammar and parts of speech.
1. The director is working on a new film.
In this sentence, “film” is a noun, and is the object of the preposition “on.”
2. The camera man will film the actress as she does her role.
In this example, “film” is a verb, and camera man is the subject of the sentence.
3. The police sent the robbers to jail.
Here “jail” is a noun, which is the object of the preposition “to.”
4. The sheriff told us that if we did not leave town immediately he would jail us.
5. The baby often cries in the middle of the night.
In this sentence, “cries” is a verb, which describes the actions of the subject of the sentence, the baby.
6. The crazy woman annoys me with her high pitched cries every night.
7. Jamie and Jake will cook spaghetti for lunch.
Here “will cook” is a verb, and its subject is “Jamie and Jake.”
8. The cook grilled some burgers for the visitors.
