Here are what you can use : noun, pronoun,adjective,verb,(verbals)infinitive,gerund, participle, adverb,preposition, conjunction,interjection.

In the marshy mists of a deserted village churchyard, a shivering, limping convict on the run suddenly terrifies Pip, a tiny orphan boy. Years later, a supremely arrogant young Pip boards the coach to london where, by the grace of a mysterious benefactor, he will eagerly join the ranks of the idle rich and “become a gentleman.”

These are my answers.
