The earth revolves round the sun. Nature is the best physician. Edison invented the phonograph. The sea hath many thousand sands. We cannot pump the ocean dry. Borrowed garments never fit well. The early bird catches the worm. All matter is indestructible. Islamabad is the capital of Pakistan. We should profit by experience. All roads lead to Rome. A guilty conscience needs no excuse. The beautiful rainbow soon faded away. No man can serve two masters.

A sick room should be well aired. The dewdrops glitter in the sunshine. I shot an arrow into the air. A barking sound the shepherd hears. On the top of the hill lives a hermit. It makes sense, but not complete sense.

Such a group of words, which makes sense, but not complete sense, is called a Phrase. In the following sentences, the groups of words in italics are Phrases: The sun rises in the east. Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. There came a giant to my door.

Page 3 It was a sunset of great beauty. The tops of the mountains were covered with snow. Show me how to do it. Examine the groups of words in italics in the following sentences: He has a chain of gold. He has a chain which is made of gold. We recognize the first group of words as a Phrase. The second group of words, unlike the Phrase of gold, contains a Subject which and a Predicate is made of gold.

Such a group of words which forms part of a sentence, and contains a Subject and a Predicate, is called a Clause. In the following sentences, the groups of words in italics are Clauses: People who pay their debts are trusted. We cannot start while it is raining. I think that, you have made a mistake. Words are divided into different kinds or classes, called Parts of Speech, according to their use; that is, according to the work they do in a sentence.

The parts of speech are eight in number: A Noun is a word used as the name of a person, place, or thing; as, Akbar was a great King. Kolkata is on the Hooghly. The rose smells sweet. The sun shines bright. His courage won him honour. The word thing includes i all objects that we can see, hear, taste, touch, or smell; and ii something that we can think of, but cannot perceive by the senses.

An Adjective is a word used to add something to the meaning of a noun; as, He is a brave boy. There are twenty boys in this class. A Pronoun is a word used instead of a noun; as, John is absent, because he is ill. The book are where you left them Page 4 A Verb is a word used lo express an action or state; as The girl wrote a letter to her cousin. Kolkata is a big city. Iron and copper are useful metals. An Adverb is a word used to add something to the meaning of a verb, an adjective, or another adverb; as, He worked the sum quickly.

This flower is very beautiful. She pronounced the word quite correctly. A Preposition is a word used with a noun or a pronoun to show how the person or thing denoted by the noun or pronoun stands in relation to something else; as, There is a cow in the garden. The girl is fond of music. A fair little girl sat under a tree. A Conjunction is a word used to join words or sentences; as, Rama and Hari are cousins. Two and two make four. I ran fast, but missed the train.

An Interjection is a word which expresses some sudden feel ing; as, Hurrah! We have won the game. She is dead. Some modern grammars include determiners among the parts of speech. Determiners are words like a, an, the, this, that, these, those, every, each, some, any, my, his, one, two, etc. In this book, as in many traditional grammars, all determiners except a, an and the are classed among adjectives. As words are divided into different classes according to the work they do in sentences, it is clear that we cannot say to which part of speech a word belongs unless we see it used in a sentence.

They arrived soon after.

Adverb They arrived after us. Preposition They arrived after we had left. Conjunction From the above examples we see that the same word can be used as different parts of speech. Exercise in Grammar 2 Name the part of speech of each italicized word in the following sentences, giving in each case your reason for the classification: Still waters run deep. He still lives in that house 3. After the storm comes the calm 4.

The after effects of the drug are bad. The up train is late. It weights about a pound. Page 5 7. He told us all about the battle. He was only a yard off me. Suddenly one of the wheels came off. Mohammedans fast in the month of Ramzan. He kept the fast for a week. He is on the committee.

Let us move on. Sit down and rest a while. I will watch while you sleep. They while away their evenings with books and games. A work from S.

A Noun is a word used as the name of a person, place or thing. The word thing is used to mean anything that we can think of. Look at the following sentence: Asoka was a wise king. The noun Asoka refers to a particular king, but the noun king might be applied to any other king as well as to Asoka. Sita is a Proper Noun, while girl is a Common Noun. Hart is a Proper Noun, while boy is a Common Noun.

Kolkata is a Proper Noun, while city is a Common Noun. India is a Proper Noun, while country is a Common Noun. The word girl is a Common Noun, because it is a name common to all girls, while Sita is a Proper Noun because it is the name of a particular girl. Hence a Proper Name is a person's own name. Note 2 - Proper Nouns are sometimes used as Common Nouns; as, 1.

Page 6 A Collective Noun is the name of a number or collection of persons or things taken together and spoken of as one whole; as, Crowd, mob, team, flock, herd, army, fleet, jury, family, nation, parliament, committee. The police dispersed the crowd. The French army was defeated at Waterloo. The jury found the prisoner guilty.

A herd of cattle is passing. An Abstract Noun is usually the name of a quality, action, or state considered apart from the object to which it belongs; as. Quality - Goodness, kindness, whiteness, darkness, hardness, brightness, honesty, wisdom, bravery.

Action - Laughter, theft, movement, judgment, hatred. State - Childhood, boyhood, youth, slavery, sleep, sickness, death, poverty. The names of the Arts and Science e.

But we can also think of these qualities apart from any particular person or thing, and speak of bravery, strength, beauty by themselves.

So also we can speak of what persons do or feel apart from the persons themselves, and give it a name. The word abstract means drawn off. Abstract Nouns are formed: Countable nouns or countables are the names of objects, people, etc. Uncountable nouns or uncountables are the names of things which we cannot count, e.

They mainly denote substances and abstract things. Countable nouns have plural forms while uncountable nouns do not. Page 7 1. The crowd was very big. Always speak the truth. We all love honesty. Our class consists of twenty pupils. The elephant has great strength. Solomon was famous for his wisdom. Cleanliness is next to godliness. We saw a fleet of ships in the harbour. The class is studying grammar.

The Godavary overflows its banks every year.

A committee of five was appointed. Jawaharlal Nehru was the first Prime Minister of India. The soldiers were rewarded for their bravery. Without health there is no happiness. He gave me a bunch of grapes. I recognized your voice at once. Our team is better than theirs. Never tell a lie. Wisdom is better than strength. He sets a high value on his time. I believe in his innocence. This room is thirty feet in length.

I often think of the happy days of childhood.

The streets of some of our cities are noted for their crookedness. What is your verdict, gentlemen of the jury? Write the qualities that belong to boys who are 1 Lazy; 2 Cruel; 3 Brave; 4 Foolish.

Long, young, humble, decent, Form Abstract Nouns from the following Verbs: Laugh, obey, live, expect, excel, know, steal. Form Abstract Nouns from the following Common Nouns: King, man, thief, woman, bankrupt, infant, owner, rogue, regent, author, mother, agent, hero, beggar, coward, priest, boy, bond, pirate, pilgrim, friend, caption, rascal, patriot, glutton.

You know that living beings are of either the male or the female sex. Now compare the words in the following pairs: The first word of each pair is the name of a male animal. The second word of each pair is the name of a female animal. A noun that denotes a male animal is said to be of the Masculine Gender.

A noun that denotes either a male or a female is said to be of the Common Gender; as Parent, child, friend, pupil, servant, thief, relation, enemy, cousin, person, orphan, student, baby, monarch, neighbour, infant. A noun that denotes a thing that is neither male nor female i.

It has nothing to do with the form of a noun, which determines its gender in many other languages, e. Objects without life are often personified, that is, spoken of as if they were living beings.

We then regard them as males or females. The Masculine Gender is often applied to objects remarkable for strength and violence; as, The Sun, Summer, Winter, Time, Death, The sun sheds his beams on rich and poor alike. The moon has hidden her face behind a cloud. Spring has spread her mantle of green over the earth. Peace hath her victories no less renowned than war. This use is most common in poetry but certain nouns are personified in nrose too. A shin is often spoken of as she; as, The ship lost her boats in the storm.

Page 9 Ways of Forming the Feminine of Nouns There are three ways of forming the Feminine of Nouns: Heir -- heiress Host -- hostess Jew -- Jewess Lion -- lioness Manager -- manageress Mayor -- mayoress Patron -- patroness Peer -- peeress Poet -- poetess Priest -- priestess Prophet -- prophetess Shepherd -- shepherdess Steward -- stewardess Viscount -- viscountess [Note that in the following -ess is added after dropping the vowel of the masculine ending] Masculine -- Feminine Actor -- actress Benefactor -- benefactress Conductor -- conductress Enchanter -- enchantress Founder -- foundress Hunter -- huntress Instructor -- instructress Negro -- negress Abbot -- abbess Duke -- duchess Emperor -- empress Preceptor -- preceptress Prince -- princess Songster -- songstress Tempter -- temptress Seamster -- seamstress Tiger -- tigress Traitor -- traitress Waiter -- waitress Master -- mistress Murderer -- murderess Sorcerer -- sorceress Note: Notice the change of form in the second word of each pair: A Noun that denotes one person or thing, is said to be in the Singular Number; as, Boy, girl, cow, bird, tree, book, pen.

A Noun that denotes more than one person or thing, is said to be in the Plural Number; as, Boys, girls, cows, birds, trees, books, pens. Thus there are two Numbers in English-the Singular and the Plural. How Plurals are Formed Page 11 dynamo, dynamos; solo, solos; ratio, ratios; canto, cantos; memento, mementos; quarto, quartos; piano, pianos; photo, photos; stereo, siereos.

The nouns dwarf, hoof, scarf and wharf take either -s or -ves in the plural. A few nouns form their plural by changing the inside vowel of the singlar; as, man, men; woman, women; foot, feet; tooth, teeth; goose, geese; mouse, mice; louse, lice. There are a few nouns that form their plural by adding -en to the singular; as, ox, oxen; child, children. The plural offish is fish or fishes. The form fishes is less usual. Some nouns have the singular and the plural alike; as, Swine, sheep, deer; cod, trout, salmon; aircraft, spacecraft, series, species.

Pair, dozen, score, gross, hundred, thousand when used after numerals , I bought three dozen oranges. Some people reach the age of three score and ten. The sari cost me five thousand rupees. Stone, hundredweight. He weighs above nine stone. Twenty hundredweight make one ton. Some nouns are used only in the plural.

Page 12 2 Names of certain articles of dress; as, Trousers, drawers, breeches, jeans, tights, shorts, pyjamas. Some nouns originally singular are now generally used in the plural; as, Alms, riches, eaves. Riches do many things. The following nouns look plural but are in fact singular: No news is good news. India won by an innings and three runs. Measles is infectious. Billiards is my favourite game. His means are small, but he has incurred no debt.

Certain Collective Nouns, though singular in form, are always used as plurals; as, Poultry, cattle, vermin, people, gentry. These poultry are mine. Whose are these cattle? Vermin destroy our property and carry disease. There are few gentry in this town. The Japanese are a hard-working people. There are many different peoples in Europe. A Compound Noun generally forms its plural by adding -s to the principal word; as, Singular -- Plural Commander-in-chief -- commanders-in-chief Coat-of-mail -- coats-of-mail Son-in-Law -- sons-in-law Page 13 Daughter-in-law -- daughters-in-law Step-son -- step-sons Step-daughter -- step-daughters Maid-servant -- maid-servants but man-servant, plural men-servants Passer-by -- passers-by Looker-on -- lookers-on Man-of-war -- men-of-war.

We say spoonfuls and handfuls, because spoonful and handful are regarded as one word. Note that the Proper Nouns Brahman and Mussulman are not compounds of man; therefore their plurals are Brahmans and Mussulmans. Many nouns taken from foreign languages keep their original plural form; as, Form Latin- Erratum, errata; -- formula, formulae or formulas: From Greek- Axis, axes; -- parenthesis, parentheses; crisis, crises; -- hypothesis, hypotheses; basis, bases; -- phenomenon, phenomena; analysis, analyses; -- criterion, criteria.

From Italian- Bandit, banditti, or bandits From French- Madame madam , mesdames; monsieur, messieurs. From Hebrew- Cherub, cherubim or cherubs ; seraph, seraphim or seraphs. Some nouns have two forms for the plural, each with a some what different meaning. Singular -- Plural Brother -- brothers, sons of the same parent.

Cloth -- cloths, kinds or pieces of cloth, clothes, garments. Die -- dies, stamps for coining, dice, small cubes used in games.

Index -- indexes, tables of contents to books, indices, signs used in algebra. Page 14 Penny pennies, number of coins, pence, amount in value. Some nouns have two meanings in the singular but only one in the plural. Singular -- Plural Light: Some nouns have one meaning in the singular, two in the plural. Singular -- Plural Colour: Some nouns have different meanings in the singular and the plural.

Singular -- Plural Advice: Page 15 Physic: Letters, figures and other symbols are made plural by adding an apostrophe and s; as, There are more e's than a's in this page. Dot your i's and cross your t's. Add two 5's and four 2's. It is usual to say- The Miss Smiths. Singular, Miss Smith.

Abstract Nouns have no plural. They are uncountable. Hope, charity, love, kindness. Names of substances are also uncountables and are not therefore used in the plural. Copper, iron, tin, wood. CASE Examine these sentences: John threw a stone. The horse kicked the boy. In sentence 1, the noun John is the Subject.

The Predicate contains the verb threw. What did John throw? Stone is the object which John threw. The noun stone is therefore called the Object. In sentence 2, the noun horse is the Subject. It is the answer to the question, 'Who kicked the boy? It is the answer to the question, 'Whom did the horse kick? When a noun or pronoun is used as the Subject of a verb, it is said to be in the Nominative Case. Page 16 When a noun or pronoun is used as the Object of a verb, it is said to be in the Objective or Accusative Case.

Note-To find the Nominative, put Who? To find the Accusative put, Whom? A noun which comes after a preposition is also said to be in the Accusative Case; as, The book is in the desk. The noun desk is in the Accusative Case, governed by the preposition in.

Read the following sentences: Object The window was broken. Subject It will be seen that Nouns in English have the same form for the Nominative and the Accusative. The Nominative generally comes before the verb, and the Accusative after the verb. Hence they are distinguished by the order of words, or by the sense. Rama gave a ball. Rama gave Hari a ball.

In each of these sentences the noun ball is the Object of gave. In the second sentence we are told that Hari was the person to whom Rama gave a ball. The noun Hari is called the Indirect Object of the verb gave. The noun ball, the ordinary Object, is called the Direct Object. It will be noticed that the position of the Indirect Object is immediately after the verb and before the Direct Object.

Will you do me a favour? We see that the Indirect Object of a verb denotes the person to whom something is given, or for whom something is done.

Examine the sentence: This is Ram's umbrella. The form of the noun Rama is changed to Rama's to show ownership of possession.

The Possessive Case does not always denote possession. It is used to denote authorship, origin, kind, etc. Aggarwal lives. Formation of the Possessive Case When a noun or a title consists of several words, the Posses sive sign is attached only to the last word; as, The King of Bhutan's visit.

The Prime Minister of Mauritius's speech. When two nouns are in apposition, the possessive sign is put to the latter only; as, That is Tagore the poet's house.

Also when two nouns are closely connected, the possessive is put to the latter; as, Karim and Salim's bakery. William and Mary's reign. Each of two or more connected nouns implying separate possession must take the possessive sign; as, Raja Rao's and R.

Narayan's novels. Goldsmith's and Cowper's poems. Use of the Possessive Case Page 18 So we must say: The leg of the table [not, the table's leg]. The cover of the book [not, the book's cover]. The roof of the house [not, the house's roof. But the Possessive is used with the names of personified When n inanimate thing has ascribed to it the attributes of a person it is said to be personified.

The Possessive is also used with nouns denoting time, space or weight; as, A day's march; a week's holiday; in a year's time; a stone's throw; a foot's length; a pound's weight. The following phrases are also in common use: The possessive of a proper name or of a noun denoting a trade, profession, or relationship may be used to denote a building or place of business church, house, school, college, shop, hospital, the atre; etc.

Can you tell me the way to St. Paul's church? I attend the Town High School but my cousin attends St. He was educated ai St. When you are in doubt whether to use a noun in the possessive case or with the preposition of, remember that, as a general rule, the possessive case is used to denote possession or ownership.

Thus it is better to say 'the defeat of the enemy' than 'the enemy's defeat', even though no doubt as to the meaning would arise. The phrase 'the love of a father' may mean either 'a father's love of his child' or 'a child's love of his father'. Nouns in Apposition Read the following sentence: Rama, our captain, made fifty runs. We see that Rama and our captain are one and the same person. The noun captain follows the noun Rama simply to explain which Rama is referred to.

Page 19 When one noun follows another to describe it, the noun which follows is said to be in apposition to the noun which comes before it. In the above sentence the noun captain is in apposition to the noun Rama, and is in the Nominative Case because Rama is in the Nominative Case. Further examples: Kabir, the great reformer, was a weaver. Yesterday I met your uncle, the doctor. Have you seen Ganguli, the artist's drawings? In sentence 1, the noun in apposition is in the Nominative Case. In sentence 2, the noun in apposition is in the Accusative Case.

Sita is a clever girl. Girl of what kind1? I don't like that boy, Which boy? He gave me five mangoes. How many mangoes? There is little time for preparation. How much time? A word used with a noun to describe or point out, the person, animal, place or thing which the noun names, or to tell the number or quantity, is called an Adjective.

So we may define an Adjective as a word used with a noun to add something for its meaning. Look at the following sentences: The lazy boy was punished. The boy is lazy. In sentence 1, the Adjective lazy is used along with the noun boy as an epithet or attribute. It is, therefore, said to be used Attributively.

In sentence 2, the Adjective lazy is used along with the verb is, Page 20 and forms part of the Predicate. It is, therefore, said to be used Predicatively. Some Adjectives can be used only Predicatively; as, She is afraid of ghosts. I am quite well.

Kinds of Adjectives Adjectives may be divided into the following classes: Adjectives of Quality or Descriptive Adjective show the kind or quality of a person or thing; as, Kolkata is a large city. He is an honest man. The foolish old crow tried to sing. They are generally classed with Adjectives of Quality language.

Adjectives of Quality answer the question: Of what kind? Adjectives of Quantity show how much of a thing is meant as, I ate some rice. He showed much patience. He has little intelligence.

We have had enough exercise. He has lost all his wealth. You have no sense. He did not eat any rice. Take great care of your health. He claimed his half share of the booty. There has not been sufficient rain this year. The whole sum was expended. Adjectives of Quantity answer the question: How much?

Adjectives of Number or Numeral Adjectives show how many persons or things are meant, or in what order a person or thing stands; as, The hand has five fingers. Few cats like cold water. There are no pictures in this book. I have taught you many things. All men must die. Here are some ripe mangoes. Most boys like cricket. There are several mistakes in your exercise.

Sunday is the first day of the week Page 21 Adjectives of Number or Numeral Adjectives are of three kinds: First, second, third, etc.

It will be seen that Ordinals really do the work of Demonstrative Adjectives. See 74] ii Indefinite Numeral Adjectives, which do not denote an exact number; as, All, no; many, few; some, any; certain, several, sundry. India expects every man to do his duty. Every word of it is false. Either pen will do. On either side is a narrow lane. Neither accusation is true. The same Adjective may be classed as of Quantity or Number, according to its use.

Adjectives of Quantity -- Adjectives of Number I ate some rice. I have enough sugar. Demonstrative Adjectives point out which person or thing is meant; as, This boy is stronger than Hari. That boy is industrious. These mangoes are sour. Those rascals must be punished.

Yonder fort once belonged to Shivaji. Don't be in such a hurry. I hate such things. Demonstrative Adjectives answer the question: What, which and whose, when they are used with nouns toask questions, are called Interrogative Adjectives; as, What manner of man is he? Which way shall we go? Whose book is this?

Page 22 Exercise in Grammar 6 Pick out all the Adjectives in the following sentences, and say to which class each of them belongs: The ship sustained heavy damage. I have called several times. Every dog has his day. A live ass is better than a dead lion, 5. Every man has his duties. Say the same thing twice over.

Several persons were present at the time, 8. He is a man of few words. Neither party is quite in the right. What time is if? Which pen do you prefer? The way was long, the wind was cold, the minstrel was infirm and old. He comes here every day. I have not seen him for several days. There should not be much talk and little work. Abdul won the second prize.

In the following sentences the words own and very are used as Emphasizing Adjectives: He was beaten at his own game. Mind your own business. He is his own master. That is the very thing we want. The word what is sometimes used as an Exclamatory Adjective; as. What genius! What folly! What an idea! What a blessing! What a piece of work is man!

This girl sings. These girls sing. That boy plays. Those boys play. This, these indicate something near to the speaker. That, those indicate more distant objects. Formation of Adjectives Page 23 Care -- careful Pardon -- pardonable Play -- playful Laugh -- laughable Hope -- hopeful Outrage -- outrageous Venture -- venturesome Courage -- courageous Trouble -- troublesome Glory -- glorious Shame -- shameless Envy -- envious Sense -- senseless Man -- manly Silk -- silken King -- kingly Gold -- golden Gift -- gifted ii Some Adjectives are formed from Verbs.

The tidings were a heavy blow to the old man. Here is a rupee: His reading is of a very range. The injured man wants advice. You cannot have it ways. India expects man to do his duty. The bird catches the worm. Have you any reason to give?

There were riots in places. An man will not reason calmly. He stands feet in his stockings. Nelson won for himself fame. I have no cash.

He always walks with a step. Every cloud has a lining. He was a man of ambition. He was listened to in silence. Exercise in Composition 8 Form Adjectives from the following Nouns: Page 24 pain, doubt, wonder, peace, child, prince, mountain, ridicule, picture, labour, wood, pomp, artist, progress, slave, contempt, tempest, sense, quarrel, I thought, hope, friend.

Exercise in Composition 9 Use each of the following Adjectives in a sentence: His polite manners have endeared him to all. Swimming is a healthy exercise.

A certain man fell among thieves. Exercise in Composition 10 Use a suitable Adjective with each of the following Nouns: A long siege. A decisive victory. A populous city. A devoted husband. Storm, siege, sleep, victory, advice, blow, silence, hands, water, servant, flower, city, artist, dealer, voice, husband, subject, child, king, dog.

Exercise in Composition 11 Use as many suitable Adjectives as you can with each of the following Nouns: A deliberate lie, a black lie, a white lie. Exercise in Composition 12 Write down the Adjectives opposite in meaning to the following: Read these sentences: Rama's mango is sweet.

Hari's mango is sweeter than Rama's. Govind's mango is the sweetest of all. Page 25 In sentence 1, the adjective sweet merely tells us that Rama's mango has the quality of sweetness, without saying how much of this quality it has. In sentence 2, the adjective sweeter tells us that Hari's mango, compared with Rama's, has more of the quality of sweetness.

In sentence 3, the adjective sweetest tells us that of all these mangoes Govind's mango has the greatest amount or highest degree of the quality of sweetness. We thus see that Adjectives change in form sweet, sweeter, sweetest to show comparison.

They are called the three Degrees of Comparison. The Adjective sweet is said to be in the Positive Degree. The Adjective sweeter is said to be in the Comparative Degree. The Adjective sweetest is said to be in the Superlative Degree. The Positive Degree of an Adjective is the Adjective in its simple form.

It is used to denote the mere existence of some quality of what we speak about. It is used when no comparison is made. The Comparative Degree of an Adjective denotes a higher degree of the quality than the Positive, and is used when two things or sets of things are compared; as, This boy is stronger than that.

Which of these two pens is the better? Apples are dearer than oranges. The Superlative Degree of an Adjective denotes the highest degree of the quality, and is used when more than two things or sets of things are compared; as, This boy is the strongest in the class.

Note 1: Instead of saying 'Rama is stronger than Balu we can say 'Balu is less strong than Rama'. Almost all competitive exams do ask questions related to English Grammar.
