    Default first / last

    Dear teachers,

    Are “first / last” adjectives, adverbs ?

    1) I came in first this semester.

    2) I came first on the first day of class.
    3) The first thing I do when I come home is…


    How should I know which parts of speech first/last belong to?


    Thank you for your help.

    Look at where the word sits in the structure. For example,

    2) I came first on the first day of class. (determiner + adjective + noun)
