    Question parts of speech

    I am trying to figure out the parts of speech in the followoing sentence:

    I like to watch TV.

    I is a pronoun

    like is the verb

    to is a preposition

    What is watch --is it a verb? and what is TV? the object of the preposition?

    Please help

    Smile Re: parts of speech

    To Watch is your prepositional phrase, and TV is your noun

    'I' = subject
    'watch' = verb
    'TV' = object of the verb
