    ...pronoun, verb, adjective, adverb, preposition, conjunction and interjection in the English language!

    So far I haven't been able to come across any complete list.

    Any help?

    English being a polysynthetic language can turn almost any part of speech into different part of speech (depending on suffixes or prefixes as well as location on a clause), so I'm sorry to say that the closest thing you might find to a list is a dictionary.

    why would you need such a list?
    I am working on an intelligent chat bot. I have got the basic algorithm worked out, but I need an (almost) complete list of every part of speech to start working on it.
