Noun – Verb – Adjective


Quite often than not, students get confused among these three basic elements of grammar. Let me keep it simple and straight. Noun is the name of a person, a place or a thing. The world thing means something you can see, touch, taste, or think of. Let me elaborate with noun examples:


Noun as name of a person :- Ram, Harry, Laxmi etc.
Noun as name of place :- Bilaspur, India, America etc.
Noun as a thing :- Table, sky, air, tea, milk, honesty, youth etc.


Basically nouns can be classified into 5 categories :-

a) The Proper Noun

b) The Material Noun

c) The Common Noun

d) The collective Noun

e) The Abstract Noun

Nouns can further be classified into two categories:-

a) Countable Nouns

b) Uncountable Nouns


Verb is the work we do. Do you know that no sentence is possible without a verb? Read, write, play, climb etc. these are all verbs. Your level in English is determined by the number of verbs you know. A bare minimum of 300 verbs should be known to a student of under graduate level.

A verb has 3 forms viz. Present, Past & Past Participle. This is also called conjugation of verbs. There are three categories of verb viz. Transitive Verb, Intransitive Verb & Auxiliary or Helping Verb.

Adjective is something that will qualify a noun or a pronoun. Good, bad, enough, tall, either etc are all adjectives.


Adjectives are basically of the following 6 types :-

a) Adjectives of quality

b) Adjectives of quantity

c) Adjectives of numeral types

d) Distributive Adjectives

e) Demonstrative adjectives

f) Interrogative adjectives

Degrees of Comparison:-

Positive Degree :- Quality of a person or a thing.

Comparative Degree :- Better or worse of the two.

Superlative Degree :- The best or the worst of a group comprising more than two.
