Welcome to my Grammar Guide: Beginner Level. Let’s get started.
NOUNS are people, places, things, and ideas.
ADJECTIVES help nouns by describing them.
VERBS show action. I like action.
An ADVERB can be used to modify a verb, adjective, or another adverb — give it a little oomph. Fun, right?
There, Their and They’re sound the same, but that doesn’t mean you just use whichever one you want! There is a place. Their shows possession. They’re is a contraction for “they are.”
There is a boat.
Their boat is right there.
They’re on the boat over there, and I will eat them and their boat.
Your and You’re also sound the same, but we have to move on from that. Your is possessive, and you’re is a contraction of you are.
Your legs are gone.
You’re without legs.
Now it’s time to explore sentences. There are four types of sentences.
DECLARATIVE (makes a statement)
I will eat the legs.
IMPERATIVE (gives a command)
Eat the legs now.
INTERROGATIVE (poses a question)
Should I eat the legs?
EXCLAMATORY (expresses emotion)
I’m eating the legs!
In our next guide, we will explore the big world of paragraphs. Stay tuned.
