    Word Classes (Parts of Speech)

    Can anyone help me to identify all the open class words for the 2 sentences
    N, V, Adj, or Adv. I am not sure with some of them.

    1. Rows of electric lights were now alight in the snow-covered trees and along the frosty roads.

    2. A jagged block of frozen rainwater was soon brought inside and placed in a large zinc bucket.





    Thanks!

    Can you first of all indicate which you think they are, and we can then advise you.
