In the word group lessons, you're going to learn terms like noun, adjective, adverb and preposition.
But before we do that, we have one very important thing to say, no matter which lesson you do first:
Noun, verb, adjective etc are all jobs, and words can have different jobs depending on context
For example, the word ‘sit’ is a verb: “Sit down!”
Easy! Grammar is our friend!
But then imagine we said, "I’m going to have a sit down with Julius.”
Now ‘sit’ isn’t a verb, it’s a noun.
So when we say a word is this or that—a noun, verb, adjective, whatever—it’s good to remind yourself that this is not entirely true:
A word is not something; a word only ever ‘functions as’ or ‘acts as’ something.
For example, sit usually functions as a verb, but occasionally functions as a noun.
