The Rules of English Grammar

An old rhyme...
A Noun's the name of any thing
As school or garden, hoop or swing.
Adjectives describe the kind of noun
As great, small, pretty, white or brown.
Instead of nouns the pronouns fit -
As he and you, and they and it.
Verbs tell of something being done -
To read, write, count, sing, jump or run.
How, when and where the adverbs tell,
As slowly, near, far, now or well.
Conjunctions join the words together:
Men and women, wind or weather.
The preposition stands before
A noun, as in or through a door.
The interjection shows surprise,
As "Oh, how pretty," "Ah, how wise!"
Three little words you often see,
Are articles a, an and the.
The whole are called 'nine parts of speech',
Which reading, writing, speaking teach.
