Introduction to Other Parts of Speech

A person struggling to hold three boxes, one labelled with a conjunction, one with a preposition, and one with an article. He's saying "Uh, what should I do with these?"

We’ve covered the majority of parts of speech: nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. So, what’s left?

What remainsĀ are the little connecting word categories: conjunctions, prepositions, and articles. These small words may not seem as important as verbs, nouns, and adjectives, but they are the backbone of English: these are the words that give our language structure.

  • Conjunctions connect words and ideas together.
  • Prepositions indicate relationships.
  • Articles provide information about nouns.
