This unit takes a look at grammar through the various parts of speech from nouns, adjectives, articles, verbs, adverbs, gerunds, pronouns, and prepositions. It illustrates the forms, usages, modifications, and extensions of these part of speech with examples for clarification. English grammar could be complicated but this unit gives me a logical breakdown of this complications and after reading through this unit it becomes easier to comprehend how to use and teach grammar through the knowledge I have gained on how to use the various parts of speech. I can now identify clearly the parts of speech in a sentence. On nouns, I have learnt their various types, usages, and their modifications ( plurals formed by adding an 's',those that end in 'ch','sh'and 's' take an 'es' with those ending in 'y' the y changing into 'i' and adding 'es' On adjectives I now understand what is emphasized when using a cluster of adjectives and 'and' From the unit, the rules for using articles ( a, an and the )is now clear to me especially I could not have been able to explain why I use 'a' for a uniform and 'an' for an umbrella. Now I know words that begin with a vowel but have a consonant sound take 'a' instead of 'an' for an article. Umbrella begins with a vowel but doesn't have a consonant sound so it takes 'a' for an article. This could have been very tricky to explain to students. Overall I am now more confident with using and explaining the part of speech analyzed in the unit to my students.
