    Arrow When writing can the writer use certain words in the sentence?

    I have a problem with understanding verbs and such. My question is can I use the sentence words I am writing in place of verbs and nouns? I understand words better than grammar. Paul

    Re: When writing can the writer use certain words in the sentence?

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "sentence words".

    There are eight basic parts of speech - all words fit into at least one of those categories. Nouns and verbs are two such categories.

    SKrej,
    Sentence words are written words I am writing like now, before I edit it. I edit the thread after I finish the piece by rereading the original post. I see a word that can be changed and I change it immediately before I edit the thread. I have notice that some of the written words on the original draft can be used without going to Grammarly. Paul

    I don't understand what that means.

    Many words can be changed- it doesn't mean that they need to or should be changed.
