Two types: 1. Proper 2. Common
!. A proper noun names a particular person, place, or thing and ALWAYS begins with a capital letter.
The spelling of a singular noun almost always changes when it becomes plural by adding an “s” or “es”.
A noun or unit of words acting as a noun whose meaning is a direct copy or extension of the meaning of the preceeding noun in the sentence (explains or expands the noun.
A noun whose form has changed to show posession. With a singular noun add an apostrophe, and “s”, or when it ends in “s” omit the extra “s” after the apsotrophe. With a plural noun add an apostrophe if it ends in “s” – if not add an aprostophe and an “s”. With a compound noun only the last word takes the possessive form, as with two or more nouns that possess the same thing. When two or more bouns possess individula things each get the possessive form.
A word that represents a person, place, or thing is a pronoun. There are 5 classes. !. Personal, 2. Relative, 3. Demonstrative, 4. Indifinate, 5. Introgative.
One can say “John and I went to the show,” instead of “John and me went to the show,” because “Me” won’t stand alone. In other words one can’t say, “Me wemt to the show.” By the same token one can’t say , “He gave the tickets to John and I,” because “I” won’t stand alone. One must say, “He gave the tickets to John and me.”
A verb expresses an action or a state of being.
A transative verv is an action performed on someone or something (the direct object) and sometimes the indirect object.Example: “The captain handed us our orders.” “Handed is the verb, us is the direct object (what?), orders is the indirect object (whom? Or what? – for whom? Or for what?).
An intransative verb has no object because no question can be answered.
A linking verb joins a noun or nouns to another noun or unit of words that make up a noun to rename or describe the first noun. It is always intransative ane expresses a state of being – to be and all forms of to be such as am, are, is, was, and were. Other common linking verbs include act, appear, become, feel, grow look, remain, seem, smell, sound, taste, turn.
An adjetive that follows a linking verv is a Predicate adjetive.
A noun that follows a linking verb is a predicate nominativee.
The subject of a transative verb either performs or receives the action. A verb whose subject performs is said to be the active voice. A verb whos subject receives is said to be the passive voice. Example of active: Linda nursed the wounded soldiers. Example of passive: The soldiers were nursed by Linda.
