    sentence elements

    Dear teachers,

    1) Would you please help me to find GOOD definitions for the following stce elements ? The following are not satisfying.

    a) A word is an element of a class of words called parts of speech.
    b) A phrase is formed of a group of related words.
    c) A clause is formed of a number of phrases.
    d) A sentence is formed of one or more clauses.

    2) Parts of Speech.

    Where can I get a clear (concise & detailed) explanation of the role of the following parts of speech in a sentence?

    1) determiner: (article / possessive adjective / demonstrative pronoun / quantifier / any more...... ?)

    2) noun: (proper / common → concrete + abstract)

    3) pronoun: (personal / possessive / reflexive / relative)

    4) verb: (main / auxiliary / modal)

    5) adverb: (time / place / manner / degree / frequency)
    - intensifier: (very / too / so / such / enough / any more…… ?)
    - correlative: ???

    6) adjective: (possessive // attributive / predicative // comparative / superlative)

    7) preposition: (time / position / direction / any more…… ?)

    8) conjunction: (coordinating / subordinating)

    9) interjection:

    Many thanks,
    Hela
