Can you please help. I am trying to understand parts of speech, as I am self-teaching myself. Unfortunately, the book does not come with answers so I am not sure if I am right or wrong.

Name the part of speech of each word in bold?

  1. In after years this brave act shall be remembered. (Adjective)

  2. The boys followed after the girls. (Adverb)

  3. Helen went first and I after. (Verb)

  4. The evening was pleasant after the thunder storm had passed. (Conjunction)

  5. My friend left the next day. (Adjective)

  6. The conductor stood next to the door. (Adverb)

  7. In the queue my mother came next to auntie. (Adverb)

  8. We made a round of the side-shows. (Noun)

  9. The car whizzed round the corner. (Preposition)

  10. The wheel whirled round. (Adverb)

  11. The round carpet had a most unusual design. (Adjective)

  12. I have not seen the tramp since. (Adverb)

  13. The explorers have not been heard of since last month. (Adverb)

  14. It is no use offering him money since he always refuses it. (Preposition)

Thanks Mister Micawber

Still confused by answers to 2, 3, 6, 7, 13, 14. Can you please enlighten me further?

2. Thought it was adverb, as it explains how the boys followed.

3. Thought it was a verb, as it follows the pronoun "I"

Re the others, they are preposition and conjunction questions which do not seem quite clear to me.

  1. The evening was pleasant after the thunder storm had passed. (Conjunction) I think it is an adverbial clause, telling "when"

2-- Maybe it is , if you consider 'follow after' to be a phrasal verb; then 'the girls' is the object. However, follow can be intransitive (Bill led and Jane followed), so I think 'after the girls' indicates where the boys went: The boys followed after the girls / over the bridge / etc.
3-- No, the verb is elided: Helen went first and I [followed] after.
