    Parts of speech (Word classes)

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



    Rushing straight indoors to remove his sodden shoes, he felt his feet refreshingly bare on the marble floor.


    Thanks!

    according to openess, there are two word classes.
    OPENED word class (e.g. nouns) has an opened register, so words are keep being added here. (there was no word like bluetooth 20 years ago)
    CLOSED word class means, that any other words can be possibly added too certain word class (e.g. pronouns)
