What is Grammar?

Here’s an old children’s rhyme about the eight parts of speech of English grammar. It gives you an idea of what grammar is about. Read and remember it.


Every name is called a noun, As field and fountain, street and town. In place of a noun, the pronoun stands, As he and she can clap their hands. The adjective describes a thing, As a magic wand or bridal ring. Most verbs mean action, something is done, Verb Adjective Preposition

To read and write, to jump and run. How things are done the adverbs tell, As quickly, slowly, badly, well. The preposition shows relation, As in the street or at the station. Conjunctions join, in many ways, Sentences, words, or phrases and phrases.
