If there is one thing to understand about middle school English is that it will focus quite heavily on reading (reading lots of books) and writing (writing lots of book reports and research papers).
Since by now you will have had years of learning words and word usage, to stretch you even further, the time has come to see just how well you can put all of that word usage learning to use and how well you can use language to express yourself and your ideas. That does not mean, however, that you can sit back and think that you no longer have to worry about knowing which words are conjunctions, verbs, adverbs, pronouns, adjectives, prepositions and so on. Nope, you still need to remember all of that in order to be able to write and write well-constructed reading papers.
So for this quiz you will be given a word usage word and then you need to see if you remember what it means. Sounds pretty easy - right? Well, let’s see just what you do remember about each of the following types of words.
