Oh, verb, verb. I’m just a verb.
I like movements and enjoy the state of being.
I tell you about actions, and states about the subject
I love to sing and dance.
Oh, I’m a doing word.
Oh, noun, noun. I’m just a noun.
I refer to people, places, and many other things.
Like animals, conditions, and abstract ideas.
I love to be the subject
then it’s all about me.
Oh, a preposition. I’m a preposition.
I join nouns to other parts of the sentence
Introducing a phrase that has an object
I love to give directions
in both time and space.
Oh, a conjunction. I’m just a conjunction.
They say I play an important function
Connecting words, phrases, and clauses
I love to be coordinating
Oh, an adverb. I’m a bossy adverb.
I indicate time, place, manner, or degree
I modify a verb, adjective, or adverb
I love to tell you how, when, where
to do most everything.
Oh, an adjective. I’m an adjective.
I modify, describing nouns or pronouns
I paint a vivid picture in your mind
I love to be comparative
Oh, a pronoun. I’m a pronoun.
Personal, demonstrative, interrogative
Indefinite, reflexive, and relative
I love to get possessive
because I’m so intensive.
Oh, an interjection. I’m an interjection.
I like to get emotional and draw attention
I like to emphasize, proclaim, and announce
So Yeah, Gosh Darn, By Golly
Oh, the parts of speech
We’re the parts of speech.
We help you put it all together
To communicate your thoughts
so you’ll be understood.
