I HAVE CHECHED MY GRAMMAR BOOKS BEFORE POSTING

(1) Let's take today.

(a) Today's newspaper is very interesting. = the possessive case

of today (a noun) being used as an adjective.

(b) Today is my birthday. = today as a noun.

(c) I will go today. = The books call this an adverbial objective.

That is, today (usually a noun) is being used as an adverb. Tells

when I will go.

(d) I cannot think of any case in which today is used as a verb.

***

P.S. I believe that in standard English, one should not say:

Today has a soccer match.

It might be better to say:

There is a soccer match today./ The soccer match is today.

In those two sentences, some books would classify today

as an adverb.
what is the name of your Grammar book?Please tell me the book name please.Thank you very much.
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
My grammar books are quite old. I do not think that you would be

able to get them.

I can, however, recommend some books that are quite popular with

many English learners:

Longman English Grammar by L.G. Alexander.

Practical English Usage by Michael Swan.

Grammar in Use by Raymond Murphy

***

Also, remember that the Internet is a great resource. For example,

if you google "Adverbial objectives," you should be able to find

articles explaining why "today" is considered an adverb in "I will

come today."

And if you google "possessive case" (or "genitive case"), you will

find helpful articles.

*** Of course, if you have a specific question, you can always

post your question here. Someone will be sure to give you

a correct answer. You can also use the "search" box at this

website to find similar questions posted by other people.

Good luck!!!

Hi,
Most well-known dictionaries will give you the correct answers. We can't arbitrarily label a word without a context in which it's used. "Today" can be a noun, as in "Today is a new beginning". But in the next example, it's an adverb (of time): "I can't go shopping with you (today).

Take a look at the usage, it may help answer your questions:

(EDITED by khoff to fix a typo -- "We can't not" was changed to "We can't.")
Thank you for your kind note. I always learn something when I read

your informative posts.
