    Hello,

    Within a sentence words are divided into two basic categories: 1) their name (FORM) and what they do (FUNCTION).

    1. All living things need water.

    FORM
    All (adjective)
    living (participle adjective)
    things (plural noun)
    need (present tense verb)
    water (non-count noun)

    FUNCTION
    All living things (subject)
    need (main verb)
    water (object)

    All (modifies the noun phrase 'living things')
    living (modifies the plural noun 'things')


    2. People and animals need water to drink.

    FORM
    People (plural noun)
    and (conjunction)
    animals (plural noun)
    need (present tense verb)
    water (non-count noun)
    to drink (to-infinitive verb)

    FUNCTION
    People and animals (subject)
    need (verb)
    water (object)
    to drink (adverb) It answers the question, "Why do people and animals need water?"

    3. Plants need water to help them grow.

    FORM
    Plants (plural noun)
    need (present tense verb)
    water (non-count noun)
    to help (to-infintive verb)
    them (plural pronoun, personal, object form)

    FUNCTION
    Plants (subject)
    need (verb)
    water (object)
    to help them grow (adverb)

    4. Rain is water that falls from the clouds in the sky.

    FORM
    Rain (noun)
    is (linking verb, present tense)
    water (non-count noun)
    that (subordinate conjunction)
    falls (verb)
    from (preposition)
    the (determiner/article)
    clouds (plural noun)
    in (preposition)
    the (determiner/article)
    sky (noun)

    FUNCTION
    Rain (subject)
    is (linking verb, present tense)
    water (object)
    that falls from clouds in the sky (relative clause) It modifies or describes the noun 'water')
    from clouds (adverb) Where does the rain fall from?
    in the sky (adverb) Where are the clouds? In the sky.

    5. Clouds are made of millions and millions of tiny drops of water.

    Clouds (plural noun)
    are (linking verb, present tense, plural)
    made (adjective)
    of (preposition)
    millions (plural noun)
    and (conjunction)
    millions (plural noun)

    Say:
    • I am studying the parts of speech.

    Say:
    • I don't know what the pronouns are in that paragraph.

    Say:
    • I am only studying nouns, pronouns and verbs right now.


    Cas is very thorough.

    :)
