英語パパ 必須英語の文法: 前置詞, 接続詞, インタラクション

In this post I would like to introduce a very basic English grammar concept and that is the preposition, conjunction and interjection.

Preposition (前置詞) is a word used to link nouns, pronouns or phrases to other words within the sentence.

Example: I drove my car to  the gas station.

to = preposition

Conjunction (接続詞) are words that connect clauses and sentences.

Examples for the use of conjunctions:

My favorite sports are football and baseball.

I am allergic to shrimps, yet I love to eat them.

Example List of Conjunction Words:

And

Are

Or

But

Nor

So

For

Yet

After

Although

As

As If

As Long As

Because

Before

Even If

Even Though

Once

Since

So That

Though

Till

Unless

Until

What

When

Whenever

Wherever

Whether

While

 

interjection is the part of speech that shows the emotion or feeling of the writer.

Example: Good grief! Why are you wearing this jacket when it is thirty degrees Celsius outside?

英語パパ 必須英語の文法: 名詞と代名詞 (Nouns and Pronouns)

In this post I would like to introduce a very basic English grammar concept and that is the Nouns and Pronouns.

 

Noun: a word that names a person, place, or thing.

Pronoun: Used in place of a noun that has already been mentioned (examples include He, She, They, It, We, Who)

 

Example:

  • Martin is as tall as I am. (Martin = noun, I = pronoun)
  • The rabbit chewed on its carrot. (Rabbit = noun, its = pronoun)

英語パパ 必須英語の文法: 主語と述語 (Subject and Predicate)

In this post I would like to introduce a very basic English grammar concept and that is the subject and predicate.

Subject: A person, place, thing or idea that is doing or being something

Predicate:  Everything else that is not the subject

An example of the subject and predicate is shown below:

The grass is greener on the other side.

“The grass” is the subject and “is greener on the other side.” is the predicate.
