    It is the English grammar

    There are eight parts of speech in English:

    noun
    pronoun
    verb
    adjective
    adverb
    preposition
    conjunction
    interjection

    Remember that some words can be many parts of speech, depending on how they are used in the sentence:

    Ex: "well"

    "The village dug a well." (noun)
    "She sings well." (adverb)
    "Well, I don't know." (interjection)
    "The bride began to well up with tears before her vows." (verb)

    And remember also that some words can change forms (for instance, a verb can change into a "verbal", which can act like a noun or adjective, etc.):

    Ex. "to run"

    "Cheetahs can run at 60 mph." (verb)
    "Running hurts my knees." (gerund / noun)
    "We kept a running total of expenses for the wedding." (adjective)

    noun pronoun adverb adjective preposition conjunction interjection verb
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
