The Internet Grammar of English

The Internet Grammar of English is an online course in English grammar written primarily for university undergraduates. However, we hope that it will be useful to everyone who is interested in the English language. IGE does not assume any prior knowledge of grammar. The Internet Grammar of English is accessible free of charge.

The Parts of Speech. Traditional grammar classifies words based on eight : the verb , the noun , the pronoun , the adjective , the adverb , the preposition , the conjunction , and the interjection . Each explains not what the word , but how the word . In fact, the same word can be a noun in one sentence and a verb or adjective in the next. The next few examples show how a word's part of speech can change from one sentence to the next, and following them is a series of sections on the individual parts of speech, followed by an exercise.
