Identify the Parts of Speech

Author's Bias: Interpretation: conservative

Another important skill is identifying the parts of speech of a sentence or passage.

What is the function of the term?

Is it a verb?

How about a conjunction?

Or a preposition?


There are nine parts of speech:

nouns, pronouns, verbs,

adverbs, adjectives, conjunctions,

prepositions, interjections, and articles.

Look for the parts of speech!

Understanding the combination of parts of speech that make up a sentence will most certainly help you understand what the author is saying.

For those who desire more, consider a deeper Bible study by examining the parts of speech in the Hebrew or Greek text, which the Bible translation is based on, to understand the subtle nuances of the author.
