1What is Grammar?Here’s an old children’s rhyme about the eight parts ofspeech of English grammar. It gives you an idea of whatgrammar is about. Read and remember it.Every name is called a noun,NounAs field and fountain, street and town.PronounIn place of noun the pronoun stands,As he and she can clap their hands.The adjective describes a thing,As magic wand or bridal ring.AdjectiveMost verbs mean action, something done,VerbTo read and write, to jump and run.How things are done the adverbs tell,itionPreposAs quickly, slowly, badly, well.AdverbThe preposition shows relation,As in the street or at the station.Conjunctions join, in many ways,Sentences, words, or phrase and phrase.The interjection cries out, “Heed!ConjunctionAn exclamation point mustfollow me!” Interjection
