Part of the speech
A speech is the ability to talk or the activity of talking.

This speech is composed of 9 parts, these parts of the speech tell us what a word does, along with how it functions and makes meaning.
We can also group parts of speech into lexical words, which carry a lot of meaning, and function words, which help us make sentences and show the relationship between things.

The parts of speech are:
  • Nouns
  • Pronouns
  • Verbs
  • Adverbs
  • Adjectives
  • Prepositions
  • Conjunctions
  • Interjections
  • Articles

Nouns
A noun is a word that refers to the subject, it can be singular or plural, also there are uncountable and countable nouns. Examples: John, money, car, cars, Chuby, dog, dogs, school, family, etc
Pronouns
A pronoun is a word that replaces the noun. We have the next types of them: Subject pronouns, object pronouns, possessive pronouns, and reflexive pronouns. Examples: I, she, they, etc. (SP), me, him, us, etc. (OP), mine, hers, yours, etc. (PP), myself, itself, themselves, etc. (RP).
Verbs
Verbs are words we use to talk about the action of the noun. Examples: play, cook, run, see, etc.
Adjectives
Adjectives are words that describe, or modify, nouns, they usually come before nouns. Examples: big party, terrible news, the best pizza, interesting idea, strong leader.
Adverbs
Like adjectives, adverbs describe words, but in this case, they describe verbs, adjectives, other adverbs, or entire sentences. Types of adverbs: Adverbs of manner, degree, time, place, frequency, purpose. Examples: quietly, almost, here, tomorrow, always, since, etc.
Prepositions
Prepositions are words placed before nouns or pronouns to connect them to other parts of speech in a sentence. There are different types: prepositions of time, place, direction, and manner. Examples: until, beneath, round, besides, etc.
Conjunctions
Conjunctions are words that can connect, for example, a list of nouns in a series. But most of the time, when we are talking about conjunctions, we are talking about connecting one clause to another clause in the same sentence. There are two types: coordinating and subordinating. Examples: for, and, but, while, although, because, etc.

Interjections
Interjections are funny words like: ouch, wow, hmm, oops, well, geez, etc. They are not connected to the other words in a sentence, generally, they add emotion to a sentence. Example: Wow, I'm so tired.
Articles
The articles in English are indefinite articles (a, an) and definite articles (the). We use indefinite articles when we are introducing a new noun to our listeners or not referring to a specific object. On the other hand, we use definite articles to refer to a specific object that our listeners already know about.
