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.
He seemed quite pleased at that too, as though every gesture was a special act of unfeigned politeness.
The Everbright building was glowing hotly in reflected sunlight that dazzled the eyes so that everyone had to avert their gaze or be blinded.
Rushing straight indoors to remove his sodden shoes, he felt his feet refreshingly bare on the marble floor

I’ll try the first two for you. You should do the 3rd one yourself or someone else might want to help you on that.
He (pronoun, nominative case) seemed (verb, past tense) quite (adverb, modifying ‘pleased’) pleased (adjective) at that (pronoun) too (adverb), as though (‘as if’ together ~ correlative or correlative conjunction) every (adjective) gesture (noun) was (verb, 3rd person singular, past tense) a special (adjective) act (noun) of unfeigned (adjective) politeness (noun).
The Everbright building (proper noun) was (verb, aux., helps to form the continuous tense) glowing (verb, present participle) hotly (adverb) in reflected (adjective) sunlight (noun) that (relative pronoun) dazzled (verb) the eyes (noun, plural) so that (correlative conjunction) everyone (pronoun) had (main verb, past tense) to avert ( infinitive) their (possessive pronoun) gaze (noun)or (conjunction) be (verb, aux., helps to form the passive voice) blinded (verb, past participle).
