If you've been out of grammar school for a while, the thought of irregular verbs and subordinate conjunctions might throw you for a loop. Dust off those sentence diagramming skills, and take a crack at our parts of speech quiz.
"About" is describing the noun "Don," so it's an adjective.
"Which" refers to the table. It could replace the noun, so it's a pronoun in this case.
The present participle form of a verb always ends in "ing."
"Should" and "have" are auxiliary verbs that go along with "been."
"Been" is the past participle of the verb "to be."
"Was" is the auxiliary verb of the present participle "thinking."
"Who" is a stand-in for a person, or a noun, so it's a pronoun.
Again, "who" is a stand-in, this time for "guy," so it's a pronoun.
"If" can take many forms, but here it's just a plain old noun.
The "or" is a conjunction for a list of nouns that are also often conjunctions. Got it?
In this sentence, "so" is an adverb because it modifies the adjective "excited."
"So" is a conjunction that links "I was hungry" and "I ate a snack."
In this case, "so" is a pronoun because it's referring to something ("have a snack") mentioned earlier.
If you replace "so" with "true," it's a little easier to realize it's an adjective in this sentence.
"So" is an interjection in this case.
"When" is modifying the verb "say," so it's an adverb.
"When" connects two parts of the sentence, so it's a conjunction.
"A" is referring to the wallet, but it's nonspecific and therefore indefinite.
In this instance, "a" can mean "for each," which is a preposition.
"Crying" is a present participle functioning as the subject of the verb "exhausted," so it's a gerund.
In this case, the present participle "crying" is an adjective describing the baby.
"If" is a conjunction connecting the two parts of the sentence.
A conditional clause discusses a situation and its possible consequences.
"Not" is always an adverb because it modifies adjectives, verbs and other adverbs — in this case, the verb "enter."
"Like" means "similar to" in this case, so it's a preposition.
"Like" is modifying the noun "$200" here, so it's an adjective.
The number is an adjective modifying "miles."
"There" is an adverb modifying the verb "went."
"Here" is a noun meaning "this place."
"Because" is always a preposition.
