For years now in school you have been learning about words. You have learned that some words are nouns, some are possessive nouns, some words are verbs, some are prepositions, some are adverbs, some are adjectives, some are participles, some are gerunds and some are infinitives.
You have learned that they can be similes, homonyms, synonyms and antonyms. It seems like there was no end to what words can be. My goodness, how do you keep all that information straight in your head, especially now, as you have advanced to a higher grade and less emphasis is placed on knowing about the words and is instead placed on writing with words? The answer is simple - practice, practice, practice and review, review and review.
This quiz [Part 1] and a second quiz [Part 2] are going to challenge you to see if you still remember words and their value when used in sentences. It is important to revisit the value of words time and time again throughout your life because, as we get older, we tend to get a little lazy with our writing and communication skills. However, if we take the time to run through a few refresher courses or quizzes every now and then, the quality of one’s writing will maintain a higher degree of excellence. And, if you ever want to learn another language, just understanding words and how they work in a sentence will help you master that new language far faster and easier than if you dismiss or become lazy on the value of each word.
So take a look at the following 10 sentences. Each sentence has a word or words that are underlined. See if you can find the right kind of word it is from the list of answers provided.
