Unit 2 explained the eight parts of speech, which include nouns, adjectives, adverbs, gerunds, articles, preposition/conjunction, verbs, and pronouns. In brief, a noun names people, animals, places, things, qualities, and states. There are 5 main types of nouns, which are common nouns, proper nouns, compound nouns, abstract nouns, and collective nouns. The section also discussed about forming nouns in the plural forms and mentioned countable and uncountable nouns. Adjectives are words that describe nouns. This particular section talked about the order of adjective words when more than 2 adjectives are given. The one basic rule for organizing adjective is: size --> age --> color --> material--> noun. One can also make comparative and superlative adjective comparisons. There are two types of articles: indefinite and definite articles. Indefinite articles are \"a or an\" and are used to indicate that the modified noun is definite, referring to any member of a group. The noun is singular in use. The definite article \"the\" is used when the noun is particular or specific and can be used before singular or plural nouns. There are Do's and Don'ts regarding the usage of articles. Verbs is an action or a state of being. Verbs, together with Subjects, form the basic structure of a sentence. Verbs can be transitive or intransitive, depending on the presence or absence of an object in the sentence. Verbs are usually in its infinitive form and they have four principal forms: base form, past simple, past participle, and present participle. Adverbs add meaning or information to the action or state denoted by a verb. This section discussed the 9 types of adverbs and the placement of adverbs in different sentences. Gerunds are verbs ending in -ing that are used as nouns. This can be in the form of a subject or an object. Pronouns are words that replace nouns or noun phrases. There are personal pronouns, possessive pronouns, reflexive pronouns, and relative pronouns. Finally, the prepositions/conjunctions section is a 2-in-1 discussion. Prepositions relate nouns or pronouns to other words in the sentence. The main types of prepositions are words categorical to time/date, movement, and place/position. Conjunctions join words or groups in a sentence and/or join clauses in a sentence.
