Noun            Describes a Noun                     
Verb            Replaces a Noun  
Adjective            Connects sentences or clauses  
Adverb            A word that comes before a noun or adjective  
Conjunction            Describes where or when something is  
Preposition            A person, place or thing  
Pronoun            Describes a Verb  
Determiner            A doing word
