The Grammar Logs: Volume One

The Grammar Logs: Volume One Parts of Speech There are thousands of words in any language. But not all words have the same job. For example, some words express "action". Other words express a "thing". Other words "join" one word to another word. We can categorize English words into 8 basic types or classes. Some grammar books categorize English into 9 or 10 parts of speech. It's quite important to recognize parts of speech. In this lesson, we have an overview of the eight parts of speech, followed by a quiz to check your understanding: English Grammar Games and Notes - Woodward English Listening - Elementary Page 1 World Of Movies Listening to a cinema's recorded message giving information about movies and times of screening.

This conditional is used when the result will always happen. So, if water reaches 100 degrees, it always boils. The 'if' in this conditional can usually be replaced by 'when' without changing the meaning. For example: If water reaches 100 degrees, it boils. Here are some more examples: See this page about the first conditional to learn about the difference between the first and the zero conditionals.
