Parts of Speech in Traditional Grammar – Part I
Traditional grammar and GGS use most of the same words for the parts of speech, but the definitions differ.
Trad Grammar Definition
Trad Grammar Extended definition
the ___ named __
A person, place, thing, or idea
Any member of a class of words that typically can be combined with determiners to serve as the subject of a verb, can be interpreted as singular or plural, can be replaced with a pronoun, and refer to an entity, quality, state, action, or concept.
Students often think of words such as she, everyone, it, and here as nouns. They reason that she and everyone are persons, it is a thing, and here is a place. GGS eliminates those errors.
