    Question Parts of Speech

    Hi, I've joined this site to improve my knowledge of English,which has waned somewhat since my schooldays 40years ago. I've been doing the "parts of speech" tests which talk about adverbs, pronouns, definite articles etc. Although I have heard of these I cannot remember what they are. Is there somewhere on the site that explains them all.

    The glossary here lists 8 parts of speech. While that is accepted by many, many others list nine parts of speech. The 9th is "article".
