    Why not tell us what you think it is, and we'll tell you if you're right. We like to see at least a bit of effort from students.

    Welcome to the forum.

    As Raymott said, we expect learners to make some effort themselves first. Have you learnt about the different parts of speech yet? Do you know what part of speech "The" is? Do you know what part of speech "girl" is?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Do you know that dictionaries help you to identify parts of speech?
