Written by

To better gain good writing skills and to present your thoughts conveniently, it would be to your advantage to grasp the basic constructs of the language itself. As of this post, Wakish Wonderz will put forward a set of essential basics to help you write better and effectively.

The Eight Classes

1) Nouns
- Words taking the form of a person, a place, a thing..etc.

Example:
- blog, computer, woman, Brooke, football, fruits, Canada, Mauritius

2) Pronouns
- Words that can designate things or people without having to name them specifically

Example:
- you, them, I, who, themselves, somebody, someone

3) Adjectives
- Words that qualify a noun to give a more precise meaning

Example:
- a glamorous woman
- a clamorous weather
- an empty bag

4) Verbs
- Words helping us to express or indicate an action, a state or occurrence of an object

Example:
- I feel hungry
- Jeremy was fat
- Summer brings warmth

5) Adverbs
- Words used alongside verbs, except nouns and pronouns, to enhance the meaning of a sentence
- Help to answer the following questions: When, Where, How and Why

Example:
- He will soon arrive
- Darren is going there
- Chow eats rather quickly
- FIFA therefore suspends this player

6) Preposition
- Words used to express the relationship between objects
- Used with nouns and pronouns

Example:
- I wrote a letter to Skellie
- The letter went by air mail
- Rooney lives near Lorie

7) Conjunctions
- Words used to connect or join phrases, sentences or words

Example:
- I make a great effort to write articles on this blog because I love sharing knowledge
- Problogger and Darren Rowse are interlinked

8.) Interjections
- Words used to express feelings and emotions
- Do not fall into the syntactical construction of a sentence nor forming an actual part of it
- Generally followed by an exclamation mark

Example:
- Eureka! bravo!
- ah! bah!
- alas!
