Hi Adelynn;

Welcome to our friendly helpful site. We answer all kinds of questions about English and language arts.

You have asked a very long question. It helps to ask just one or two things at a time. Otherwise it takes us a long time to answer you clearly.

First, I will tell you about nouns.
Nouns are people, places, and things. All sorts of things can be nouns -
dog, cat, and elephant.
Even smoke, air and water are nouns.
Some nouns are things you cannot see or touch - idea, bravery, hope and love are all nouns.

I will continue in the next post, so you will see this one.

Hi Adelynn;

The next thing to talk about are the verbs.
A verb is a word that talks about doing something or being something.

Here are some "doing" verbs:
run, jump, study, read, think, go, drive, hear, see, give, draw, send.

Here are some "being" verbs:
am, are, is, was, were.
Hi Adelynn;

You make sentences with nouns and verbs:

John runs. (John is a noun, and runs is a verb.)

Mary reads a book. (Mary and book are nouns. Reads is a verb.)

Mary is a girl. (Mary and girl are nouns. Is is a verb.

I will stop here are let you ask a question. Maybe you know this already.

All the best,
