Every word in the English language fits into a specific category. These categories include verbs, nouns, adjectives, articles, prepositions, conjunctions, and adverbs. Together these words are known as the particles or parts of speech. Knowing what each type of word is for and how to use it isn't just a crucial skill for grammar teachers. Having a good understanding of how language works means you can write better quality sentences, and pass on your knowledge to others.
