Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Part of the English Tutor instructional video series, which teaches viewers the basics of English grammar and usage, English Tutor: The Parts of Speech reviews the parts of speech and explains how to identify them. The term "part of speech" refers to the way a word is used, and its function within a sentence. Traditional grammar contains eight basic parts of speech: the verb, the noun, the pronoun, the adjective, the adverb, the preposition, the conjunction, and the interjection. The program makes these points easy to understand and remember.
