Simply English – 8 Parts of Speech is a guide to help students become familiar with the basic units of grammar. Each part of speech is defined with tips and examples for identification. Practice exercises are then provided for identifying each part of speech. Be sure to have students read over the Quick Reference (at the end of the textbook) to familiarize themselves with the eight parts of speech. It includes definitions, key words and examples. This reference can be used as a study guide and when preparing for exams. The curriculum is very flexible allowing you to introduce each part of speech, usage concept and exercises at the students’ own pace. Of course this will depend on the level of their previous exposure to English grammar. The concepts taught here are more likely to become entrenched if the ideas are incorporated into the students’ other writing assignments

With a book for every part of speech, the complete Meet the Parts of Speech series includes story-based adventures combined with traditional instruction and usage examples for nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections. In Grammaropolis, adverbs don't just modify verbs; adverbs are bossy. They tell the verbs where to go, when to leave, and how to get there. A pronoun doesn't just replace a noun; Roger the pronoun is a shady character who's always trying to trick Nelson the noun into giving up his spot. The Meet the Parts of Speech series uses the mechanics of character and story (plot, motivation, setting, etc.) to breathe life into what has traditionally been unengaging subject matter. Our story-based approach combines traditional instruction with original narrative content, which appeals to different learning styles, increases both engagement and retention, and encourages students to make a deeper connection with the parts of speech and punctuation marks. The complete series includes: Nelson the Noun Nelson takes a break from his stressful day job, leaving the Noun Office in the hands of Roger the pronoun. After discovering that vacation isn't what he'd hoped it would be, Nelson returns just in time to fix the confusion Roger has caused in his absence. Vinny the Action Verb & Lucy the Linking Verb Vinny and Lucy approach life differently. He's all action, while she's content to sit back and be. With their friend Jake the adjective in trouble, however, the two verbs must put aside their differences and work together to save the day. Jake the Adjective When Jake's nemesis pulls a prank and turns Grammaropolis into a grey, misshapen, tasteless town, Jake is forced to run around restoring everything--the colors, shapes, sizes, tastes, and more--to the way it was all meant to be. Benny the Adverb When his prized rock collection is stolen from the bank, Benny opens an investigation into how and when the theft took place and where the thief might have gone. Roger the Pronoun Feeling that he's destined for more than just renaming nouns, Roger opens up his own store next to Nelson's Nouns. But when Nelson goes missing, Roger realizes that for life to mean anything at all, every pronoun has to have an antecedent. Connie the Conjunction Nobody in all of Grammaropolis has more style than Connie; she simply knows how to put things together. After a bump on the head makes her give bad advice, she uses all the conjunctions at her disposal to set everything right again. Lil' Pete the Preposition When launching his model rocket in the park, Lil' Pete gets excited and forgets to add objects to his prepositional phrases. Without objects, the prepositions become adverbs, and chaos ensues as the rockets fly up, by, and around with no direction at all. Izzy the Interjection No matter whether the emotion is strong or mild, positive, negative, or somewhere in between, Izzy lives to express it. Loneliness can be a problem sometimes because she's not grammatically connected to the other words in the sentence, but when the time comes, she leaps at the chance to express her strongest emotion yet.

English words can be categorized into 9 basic types which are called "parts of speech" or sometimes "word classes". These are as follows: Noun, Verb, Adjective, Adverb, Pronoun, Preposition, Conjunction, Interjection, and Determiner. Many words may have more than one kind of function. In other words, they can be more than one part of speech. For example, "clear" can be a verb, an adjective and an adverb. “After” can be a preposition, an adjective, an adverb and a conjunction. Here, you will find an alphabetical list of words that can be used as at least two parts of speech: Sample This: Nouns – Alphabetical list of words that are NOUNS but can also be used as at least one more part of speech: 1. abandon [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 2. abdominal [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 3. aboriginal [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 4. abrasive [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 5. absolute [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 6. abstract [noun] -- also acts as: verb / adjective, 7. abuse [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 8. academic [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 9. accent [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 10. access [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 11. accessory [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 12. acclaim [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 13. accord [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 14. account [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 15. ache [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 16. acrylic [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 17. act [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 18. acting [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 19. action [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 20. active [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 21. address [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 22. adhesive [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 23. adult [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 24. advance [noun] -- also acts as: verb / adjective, 25. advantage [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 26. advisory [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 27. advocate [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 28. aerial [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 29. aesthetic [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 30. affirmative [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 31. affix [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 32. affront [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 33. age [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 34. agglomerate [noun] -- also acts as: verb / adjective, 35. aggregate [noun] -- also acts as: verb / adjective, 36. aid [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 37. aim [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 38. air [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 39. airbrush [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 39. airbrush [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 40. airlift [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 41. alarm [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 42. alcoholic [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 43. alert [noun] -- also acts as: verb / adjective, 44. alias [noun] -- also acts as: adverb, 45. alien [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 46. alloy [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 47. ally [noun] -- also acts as: verb, 48. alpine [noun] -- also acts as: adjective, 49. alternate [noun] -- also acts as: verb / adjective, 50. alternative [noun] -- also acts as: adjective

Modern Chinese Parts of SpeechModern Chinese Parts of Speech

What is the essence of a part of speech? Why is it difficult to classify parts of speech? What are the bases and criteria for classifying them? How should they be classified? In doing so, how should a conversional word be dealt with? How should nomonalization be treated? These are just some of the questions answered in this book. The classification of parts of speech in Chinese is a tough job due to the language's lack of morphological differences. Based on the analysis of nearly 40,000 Chinese characters, this book proposes that, essentially, a part of speech is not of distributional type and that its intrinsic basis is an expressional function and the semantic type. Essentially, large categories such as substantive words, predicate words and modification words are classes of words classified according to their expressional functions. Basic categories such as nouns, verbs and adjectives are classes that combine semantic types with syntactical functions. In classifying parts of speech, the book pays attention not to identifying a single distributive characteristic that is internally universal and externally exclusive but to clustering the grammatical functions that have the same classification value through the “reflection-representation” relationship among distribution, expressional function and semantic type (distribution reflects expressional function and semantic type, which are, in turn, represented as distribution), thereby identifying the classification criteria. It uses distributional compatibility and the correlation principle to analyze which distributional differences represent differences in parts of speech and which do not. In this way, grammatical functions that have equal classification values are collected into one equivalent function cluster, each of which represents one part of speech. The book uses four strategies to classify parts of speech, namely the homogeneity strategy, the homomorphical strategy, the priority homomorphical strategy and the consolidation strategy. It will be a valuable reference for Chinese linguistic researchers and students as well as Chinese learners.

Language resources and computational models are becoming increasingly important for the study of language variation. A main challenge of this interdisciplinary field is that linguistics researchers may not be familiar with these helpful computational tools and many NLP researchers are often not familiar with language variation phenomena. This essential reference introduces researchers to the necessary computational models for processing similar languages, varieties, and dialects. In this book, leading experts tackle the inherent challenges of the field by balancing a thorough discussion of the theoretical background with a meaningful overview of state-of-the-art language technology. The book can be used in a graduate course, or as a supplementary text for courses on language variation, dialectology, and sociolinguistics or on computational linguistics and NLP. Part 1 covers the linguistic fundamentals of the field such as the question of status and language variation. Part 2 discusses data collection and pre-processing methods. Finally, Part 3 presents NLP applications such as speech processing, machine translation, and language-specific issues in Arabic and Chinese.

Information extraction (IE) is a new technology enabling relevant content to be extracted from textual information available electronically. IE essentially builds on natural language processing and computational linguistics, but it is also closely related to the well established area of information retrieval and involves learning. In concert with other promising and emerging information engineering technologies like data mining, intelligent data analysis, and text summarization, IE will play a crucial role for scientists and professionals as well as other end-users who have to deal with vast amounts of information, for example from the Internet. As the first book solely devoted to IE, it is of relevance to anybody interested in new and emerging trends in information processing technology.
