    Re: How to identify the types of grammar

    Welcome to the forum, Siti jean.

    You are asking about 'parts of speech', not 'forms of grammar'.

    In your sentences, 'for' is a preposition, 'hard' and 'hardly' adverbs. A good dictionary, such as those here: OneLook: General dictionary sites, will give you this information.

    Please begin your sentences with a capital letter and end with an appropriate punctuation mark.

    In your sentences, 'for' is a preposition, 'hard' and 'hardly' prepositions.
    I guess you meant this "In your sentences, 'for' is a preposition, 'hard' and 'hardly' are adverbs".
