    word lists

    I'm looking for lists of specific parts of speech.

    Such as
    - a list of all the adverbs
    - a list of all the prepositions
    - a list of all the conjunctions
    - a list of all the pronouns
    - a list of all the verbs
    - a list of all the adjectives
    and so on...

    Does anyone know some websites that would have those?

    Hi, mud!
    Welcome to the forum!

    Well...I think...it's impossible to get "lists of all...."
    I have no idea about the websites dealing with what you would like...
    I'm really sorry I can't be of any help to you...

    Have you done a search on the various parts of speech? Like "list conjunctions": list conjunctions - Google Search

    Re: word lists

    If you add the word lemma to what you're looking for in a search, you'll often find relevant wordlists in the results.
