    Nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs

    Noun – A noun is a word used to name a thing, a person, a place etc. As a general rule, it is something that you can put the word ‘the’ in front of. E.g. chair, person, house, weather, moon, river, plate etc…

    Adjective – An adjective is a word used to describe a noun. E.g. sharp, fluffy, warm, dry, expensive, funny, fast, huge etc…

    Verb – A verb is a ‘doing word’. It is a word that describes what someone or something is doing. E.g. run, spin, sleep, jump, fall, climb, draw, watch, swim etc…

    Adverb – An adverb is a word that describes how something is done. They are a bit like adjectives but describe verbs instead of nouns. They quite often end in –ly. E.g. quickly, gently, noisily, kindly, carefully, angrily etc…
