Free Grammar Help— Free English Grammar Help
Welcome to my free English grammar help. Use the menu or search to look for information on the correct use of the English language.
My goal is Helping the World to Write in English. There is a page dedicated to each of the 8 parts of speech, English grammar lessons on sentences and paragraphs, as well as punctuation. On each page I'm trying to give a little lesson on correct usage with a little humor (humour for Canadians and other users of British English) and wit. (Sometimes very little!) Grammar can be fun. Please feel free to ask me any question about English grammar using the question link in the "Explore" menu. I will send a personal reply.
I asked one of my students to name two pronouns and he replied, "Who, me?"
And that, thankfully, brings us to the 8 parts of speech.
The 8 Parts of Speech
Each word in the English language can be classified according to how it is used. These eight types of words are what we call the "8 parts of speech." Click on each type of word below to go to a page explaining that part of speech.
Visit our pages on sentences for a complete analysis of:
- Run-on Sentences
- Sentence faults
- Sentence Terms
- Main clauses and conjunctions
- Restrictive clauses and That or which
How to construct a paragraph. Topic sentences. Paragraph Transitions. Paragraph Introductions. Paragraph Conclusions.
- Possessives and apostrophes
- Here's a list of words which I see as common errors.
- Verb tenses and examples of how and when to use them.
- Here's a page on how to proofread
- Links to free grammar and writing resources, as well as recommended software and books.
The English language is complex and I'm adding more content continually. This is a work in progress. Many of my entries are as a result of your questions.
If you have a specific question about verb tense, word usage or some other grammar topic, use the link above to go to the question form.
