Words (Class Recognition) 01

Words are separated into different classes. This English revision quiz will help you identify nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. If you find it difficult, it might be worth doing some of the earlier quizzes again to reacquaint yourself with the terms.

Having a good understanding of grammar helps not only when learning other languages, but also helps with becoming a better writer of English. If you know that an adverb adds information to the verb, you can experiment with the different effects created by using a variety of adverbs.

Understanding adjectives enables you to add detail, emphasis or clarity to a noun. If you choose carefully, you can craft exquisite sentences. In the previous sentence, "carefully" is the adverb adding information to "choose", which is the verb, while "exquisite" is the adjective adding detail to the noun, "sentences". Compare the difference with this sentence: "If you choose randomly, you can craft ridiculous sentences." Now the adverb "randomly" modifies the verb, "choose", and the adjective "ridiculous" modifies the noun, "sentences". See? These word classes are everywhere!

See if you can tell an adjective from an adverb by playing this quiz.
