SILLY ME! I HAD REMOVED THE VIDEO :-(

 (Oops, sorry. I 'm afraid I had removed the video. But here it is again)

So, let's get started

PARTS OF SPEECH (in brief)

  1. NOUNS: they refer to people, objects, etc
  2. PRONOUNS: they replace nouns
  3. VERBS: they show actions or states
  4. ADJECTIVES: they modify nouns.
  5. ADVERBS: they modify verbs, adjectives and other adverbs.
  6. PREPOSITIONS: they relate a noun or pronoun to its object.
  7. CONJUNCTIONS: they join words, phrases, clauses.
  8. INTERJECTIONS: they show excitement or emotion.



For next class bring:
  1. this list with PARTS OF SPEECH (complete list!!!)
  2. another EXAMPLE of a word that can belong to different parts of speech (different from the one on the video)

  5. Hello, Stella. I’m Belen Leiva.
    The example I’ve found of a word that can belong to different parts of speech is ACT.
    Depending of the context, ACT, can be a noun, transitive or intransitive verb.

    ACT as noun:
    Definition: 1) Anything done or to be done. Example "It was an act of mercy"
    2) One of the main division of a play. Example "The balcony scene happens in the second act"
    3) a short performance by one or more entertainers. Example "An acrobatic act"


    ACT as verb
    Definition: 1) To operate or function in a particular way. Example "acted as manager" (Intransitive verb)
    2) to perform as an actor. Example " He act Macbeth" (Transitive verb)
