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:
As Long As
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?
In this short post I would like to introduce a very basic English grammar concept and that is the adverb.
Adverbs are words that describe or modify a verb, an adjective or another adverb.
The very handsome guy sat down.
very = adverb
handsome = adjective
guy = noun
Verb: a word used to describe an action, state, or occurrence
Adjective: A word that describes or clarifies a noun
An example of the use of verbs and adjectives is shown below:
The furry dogs are sweating.
furry = adjective
sweating = verb
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)
- Martin is as tall as I am. (Martin = noun, I = pronoun)
- The rabbit chewed on its carrot. (Rabbit = noun, its = pronoun)
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.
